Babysitter Blues is the ninth episode of the first season of The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. It originally aired on March 13, 1988.

Plot

In the beginning, we see Tigger, Pooh and Piglet escaping prison, jumping into Christopher Robin and his train. They then head for a dead end and the dream ends where Christopher Robin’s toy train falls down the stairs. A babysitter name Tammy watching Christopher Robin while his mother is out sends Christopher back to bed. However, Christopher is not sleepy, and makes four messes and Tammy the babysitter, not to mention Christopher’s mother, gets mad. Thinking that babysitting is the easiest job, Christopher Robin, Pooh, Piglet, and Tigger try to watch Roo while Kanga’s out, and find out babysitting is harder than it looks. Roo is eventually found after the gang loses him, and Christopher Robin listens to his babysitter, Tammy the next time he is sent to bed, as do Pooh, Piglet, and Tigger. When Christopher Robin’s babysitter Tammy checks on him and she feels proud.

Trivia

  • Like Christopher Robin's mom, Tammy the babysitter’s face is never shown, and is usually only seen from the neck down.
  • When Christopher Robin accidentally switches on the vacuum cleaner, if you look real closely, the vacuum’s nozzle is slightly anthropomorphized when it sucks up Pooh, when Tigger accidentally throws it in reverse, and when Christopher finally unplugs it before it reverts to its inanimate state.
  • The vacuum cleaner is equivalent to another vacuum cleaner named Kirby, in The Brave Little Toaster.
