My Babysitter's a Vampire
- 2 Seasons
The Disney sitcom, "My Babysitters a Vampire," has become popular primarily due to the current fascination with vampires on many other popular networks. And while the Disney version may be a heavily watered down spin off of these, it still contains many scenes that would be unsuitable for children under 13. With a PG-13 rating, only mild violence and minimal blood are shown, however, the fantasy that is this Disney show ultimately portrays vampires that feed on humans. Caution should be used when deciding if this type of programming is right for your family. The premise of the show is a boy who feels he is treated unfairly by being strapped down with a babysitter, until he realizes that said babysitter is a vampire. This leads to plot twists and turns throughout the episodes as the child being baby sat and his friends are led or misled, as it may be, into adventures with this blood sucking baby sitter. These adventures may involve fist fighting or even feeding on humans with vampire bites. When considering "My Babysitters a Vampire," it must be considered that it is intended for the audience to understand the fantasy behind the plot. However, because Disney promotes to a younger audience, parents need to be aware of the issues the show deals with and how to make children understand the difference between reality and fantasy. While the show may not have the best acting or even the best writers, Disney has created a hit by tapping into children's fear and intrigue regarding vampires and there effect on the human race, whether real or fake!
