Doug's Babysitter is the second part of the ninth episode of the fourth season of Nickelodeon's Doug.

Why It Sucks

  1. This is a torture episode for both Doug and Judy, as after they blow their chance to be alone at their house, their babysitter, Mrs. Stinson and her parrot, Sunflower, are very strict with them and causes them many problems throughout the episode.
  2. Mrs. Stinson and Sunflower are both unlikable characters, because of their strict rules they have for watching Doug and Judy, with the Sunflower being the eyes on the kids, and Mrs. Stinson being the overprotective and embarrassing babysitter.
  3. While Doug and Judy were still likable, they did have a fight at the beginning that started this whole mess. Later on, Judy has sneaked out of home to the movie theater.
  4. The torture of poor Porkchop when he got caught in Mrs. Stinson’s trap was not fun to watch.
  5. Judy and Doug’s daily activities keep on getting interrupted, like when Doug was going to get lunch at school but Mrs. Stinson went to the school to give him lunch instead, and when Judy had to wear proper clothing instead of her usual clothes.
  6. Mr. Bone’s moments were mostly boring to watch, as his Disciplinarian of the Year award speech was not interesting.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. Many of the characters are still likable in this episode, like Doug, Porkchop, and Judy.
  2. Some funny moments in the episode, like when Sunflower was being tricked.
  3. Doug and Judy actually work together for once, which shows that even siblings can put aside their differences to work together. They tricked Sunflower by having a fake female Parrot, so they can trap him in the piano, then trick Mrs. Stinson into thinking they were at City Hall, but they actually stayed home. Knowing Mr. Bone would be there, they had her go to City Hall, only to not find them there, but instead Mr. Bone. They ended up falling in love, which was a nice moment to be honest.
  4. After the plan, Mrs. Stinson and Mr. Bone now hang together as a nice couple, and Mrs. Stinson’s restriction on Doug and Patty went down, which was a relief.
  5. A good ending where Mrs. Stinson let’s Doug and Patty do their usual activities, and the siblings hang out and eat at the Honker Burger.
