* TheRemake: A kid-friendly version for The Disney Channel. Originally conceived as a "follow-up" titled ''Further Adventures in Babysitting'', the "Further" was dropped from the title and it became a straight remake/reboot. The MacGuffin was changed from a Playboy magazine to a ferret(?) and the film's famous line "Don't FUCK with the babysitter" was changed to "Don't mess with the babysitter".

* AvoidTheDreadedGRating: A MacGuffin being a ''{{Playboy}}'', where Chris is the spitting image of the centerfold, some borderline offensive jokes and a WildTeenParty would be enough, but a couple quick exchanges of the F word were enough to get that PG-13. Though they did have to cut out another scene to keep the rating (see below).

* IdenticalStranger: "Shaylene" the (fictitious) ''{{Playboy}}'' centerfold that supposedly looks like Chris. (Of course, seeing as the viewers only see it briefly, we can only [[TakeOurWordForIt Take Their Word For It]].

* OffscreenInertia: Although it can be presumed the police eventually brought him back in and arrested him along with his boss, at the end of the movie the gangster who climbed out on the side of the Smurfit-Stone building to get Sara and the ''Playboy'' is shown still out there, clinging to the glass in terror...

Added DiffLines:

* OneCrazyNight: In what should be an hour-long trip to the city and back to pick up her runaway friend, Chris and the kids she's baby-sitting get a flat tire, witness an attempted murder in a domestic dispute, get pick up by car thieves, get into a gang fight and meet [[ComicBook/TheMightyThor Thor]]. Possibly the trope codifier.

* EasterEgg: According to [[http://www.vulture.com/2011/12/keith-coogan-star-of-dont-tell-mom-the-babysitters-dead-indulges-our-nostalgia.html an interview with actor Keith Coogan]], Elizabeth Shue is actually in the frat party scene as two simultaneous people--both as Chris and as a random girl wearing a black cap and sunglasses. This was so that she could dance as an extra while other angles were being filmed.
