"Biddy Sitting" is a SpongeBob SquarePants episode from season twelve. In this episode, SpongeBob and Patrick are victims of a hoax and end up babysitting a grumpy old woman who tries to escape by all means.



The episode begins with SpongeBob and Patrick starting their business for babysitting, with a woman calling them down to babysit her kids. They successfully take care of her kids and start going around town, trying to find more people who need babysitting help.

An old woman asks SpongeBob and Patrick to help babysit her baby, and when they accept, she runs off happily. When they go inside, they realize the supposed baby is extremely ugly, who can talk but still treat her like a regular baby and name her Baby Prunes.

The two feed, play, and put Baby Prunes to bed, and afterwards, SpongeBob goes into the bathroom. In there, he finally realizes that Baby Prunes is actually an extremely old woman, after spotting her last 137th birthday card. Unfortunately, a sleepy Patrick accidentally lets her run free due to him thinking she's a dog, before SpongeBob can tell him she's not a baby. The two get worried and try looking for her, only to end up in a sewing circle, where the old women in there spit on their cloth and rub it on them.

Meanwhile, Mary's Mother is doing extreme sports and activities, until eventually SpongeBob and Patrick reach her again. They are happy to see her again, but Mary's Mother is mad at them for treating her like a baby and beats them up. This makes Mary's Mother tired and fall asleep, and the episode ends with SpongeBob and Patrick walking into the distance with Mary's Mother in her wheelchair.


The episode was confirmed by Vincent Waller on June 29, 2019.[2]
