** This trope was once turned on it's head when Timmy wished for Vicky to be a child. In a turn of events, Timmy had to look after the young Vicky, she got his fairies (since unhappy children get them) and she used these on Timmy, making him suddenly into a BadlyBatteredBabysitter while she turned into a EnfantTerrible.

** A more "literal" case, is one episode where Timmy in an act of revenge read her diary and sabotaged her love life. Since Vicky was too upset to babysit, Timmy's parents hired a replacement. "THE FREAKING GRIM REAPER!!"

* In ''On Writing'', StephenKing relates a story from his childhood: a babysitter named Beulah (or maybe Eulah)--who liked to sit on his head and fart--fed Little Stevie most of a dozen eggs, then locked him in a closet while she fell asleep. His mother was unimpressed, especially since he threw up in her good shoes.

* In JohnnyTest, twin geniuses Susan and Mary are head over heels in love with their dumbass next door neighbour Gil. But he never notices they exist despite they've been neighbours for seven years. So one episode he starts a babysitting service, in which to get close to him, the two turn themselves into babies. In which his babysitting routine includes "Bouncing on a pull out sofa" "Watching horror movies" and "Feeding them chili" (Not to mention he has no idea how to change a diaper) their brother Johnny calls him out on each one, and questions why he even started a babysitting business.

* Played with in ''ThatsSoRaven''. In "Cake Fear," Raven and her brother are told their parents are hiring an old babysitter to look after them for the weekend. The babysitter, Ms. Patterson, was a complete pushover who let them do whatever they wanted, and they blamed her for eating a cake their dad made for their mom's birthday. Raven expects her to still be the same pushover she was before, until they find out she had a psychotic breakdown, spent time in prison... and escaped. And then Raven's friends start disappearing while staying at the house. [[spoiler: It turns out the whole thing's a reality TV show prank on Raven and Cory. Ms. Patterson wanted to get back at them for blaming her for the cake incident, and their dad was in on it the whole time.]]
