A Definitive Ranking Of the Best & Worst Fictional Babysitters
In honor of May 9, National Babysitters Day, we've compiled a list of the most memorable babysitters from TV and film history and ranked them from worst to the best of the best. Did you fav make the list?
9.Vicky from The Fairly OddParents
Vicky is a nightmare babysitter and we wouldn't wish her upon anyone! She goes out of her way to torture Timmy Turner whenever she gets the chance, and just the thought of being around her makes us oh so sicky.

8. Kari McKeen fromThe Incredibles
Jack-Jack's babysitter Kari isn't necessarily incompetent, but when the baby's powers begin to reveal themselves, she does NOT handle it well. She doesn't even check with the parents before handing him over to the "replacement sitter," which is a major no-no.
7. Chris Parker (Elizabeth Shue) from Adventures in Babysitting
Technically, Chris breaks all of the basic rules of babysitting, but that's exactly what makes us wish we had her as a babysitter. We'd take an outrageous adventure over a night at home watching TV any night.

6.Lt. Shane Wolfe (Vin Diesel) from The Pacifier.
The kids in The Pacifier do not like Shane when they first meet him, but he manages to win them over because they get in deep trouble and he's pretty much an action hero. Plus, Vin Diesel is the voice of Groot AND the Iron Giant, and we can't think of anyone else we'd want to hang out with.

5. Nanny McPhee (Emma Thompson)
When the going gets tough, Nanny McPhee can use magic to smooth out all of your troubles, and teach you something in the process. Plus, she only sticks around for as long as she's needed.
4. Jessie Prescott (Debby Ryan) from Jessie
Jessie is the big sister you've never had, and what more could you look for in a babysitter? She doesn't always make the right choices, but that's exactly how you end up having the most fun.
3. Maria Rainer (Julie Andrews) from The Sound Of Music
Maria is unbelievably sweet, totally undisciplined and full of music. You'd be hard-pressed to find a more delightful babysitter. Then there's the added bonus of her becoming stepmom to the kids in the film, which is kind of a dream.

2. Mrs. Doubtfire (Robin Williams)
Yes, Mrs. Doubtfire is secretly the father of the Hillard kids, disguising himself to spend time with his kids in the midst of his divorce, but he's everything the family ever dreamed of. It's one quirk we're totally willing to overlook.
1. Mary Poppins (Julie Andrews)
Julie Andrews has this babysitting thing down pat. Mary Poppins is THE ultimate nanny and you can't tell us any differently. She's full of magic, extremely long nonsense words and is practically perfect in every way.
