* Happens to [[spoiler: Leslie]] in ''WesternAnimation/MegaBabies''.



* Subverted in the ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' episode "Suddenly Suzy". When Candace has to take care of her boyfriend's evil and sadistic sister Suzy, she's sure she's in for this... only for Suzy to explain that if Jeremy isn't there, [[PunchClockVillain she's off the clock]].

* ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry'' did ''two'' of these.
** There is one episode where at the end Tom and Jerry are ''arrested for kidnapping''. Though it at least seems at the end that they might get off, since the interrogating officer notices the baby wandering off ''again''. There was also another where it ends with the baby mischievously winking at the camera, suggesting he does it ''on purpose''. During both of those cartoons, the babysitter spends the entire time talking on the phone and sees the moment Tom puts the baby back on his crib. She then hits Tom or throw him out of the house, thinking he was harassing or harming the baby.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/ILoveLucy'': In need of money, Lucy answers an ad for a babysitting job that pays five dollars an hour (a large sum in the 1950s). She is suspicious of why she is being paid so much, and finds out that she is taking care of two badly-behaved twin brothers. They are very demanding, constantly screaming and kicking her, and at one point tie her up to burn her at the stake while playing CowboysAndIndians.

*** ''Sun and Moon'' looks to be bringing it back if the stinger after [[spoiler:Nebby]] was introduced is any indication -- he tried to save it from crawling off a ladder...but this Pokemon can float, so Pikachu ended up sending himself to the ground.

* An incredibly weird variation occurs in ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls''. The girls are given a random babysitter who, by chance, is their ArchNemesis Mojo Jojo, who believes that as their babysitter he can demand that they help him take over Townsville. The girls are deliberately the worst kids ever, even at one point getting Mojo run over by a car, and ultimately driving him completely insane.

* The short film ''Jack-Jack Attack'' (special featured on the ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'' DVD) features a slightly ditzy but responsible girl (Kari) babysitting Jack-Jack Parr. Jack-Jack proceeds to [[RandomTransportation teleport about the house]], [[PowerFloats defy gravity]], chew through a wooden "cage" (actually an inverted playpen), [[IntangibleMan phase through walls]], set the house on fire while '''[[WreathedInFlames being on fire]]''', and [[EyeBeams shoot Kari with lasers]]. [[MeanwhileBackAtThe This actually happened WITHIN the time-frame of the movie, off-screen]].

*** To her credit, she never tried to leave Jack-Jack before the "replacement sitter" showed up, and had no reason to believe that he wasn't a sitter since Mrs. Parr told Kari she was calling a replacement anyway.

* One ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'' arc involves Calvin locking Rosalyn out of the house. She's very, very well paid. (Apparently, no other sitters will even take the job.)

When the parents -- who frankly should be locked up for negligence -- return home, they are either totally unaware that anything untoward has happened, or [[SelectiveEnforcement chastise the babysitter for something trivial]], like tracking mud on the carpet, not knowing that he's suffered massive AmusingInjuries keeping their child safe.

* In the ''Franchise/{{Neptunia}}'' manga, when Nepgear, Uni, Rom and Ram are deaged into babies, Neptune had a pretty hard time looking after them. She wasn't put through as much physical abuse as other examples on this page, but she did have to put up with straining stuff.

* Alice Sakaguchi is this to Rin Kobayashi briefly in the beginning of ''Manga/PleaseSaveMyEarth'', but Rin turned out to be . . . well, a different kind of special from what Alice expected.
