Baby Sitters Jitters is a 1951 short subject directed by Jules White starring American slapstick comedy team The Three Stooges (Moe Howard, Larry Fine and Shemp Howard). It is the 130th entry in the series released by Columbia Pictures starring the comedians, who released 190 shorts for the studio between 1934 and 1959.
The Stooges become babysitters when they are behind on their rent money. They are sent to babysit Junior Lloyd (David Windsor) whose mother, Joan Lloyd (Lynn Davis) is separated from her husband and is afraid that he might abduct Junior.
Moe tells Shemp to prepare some soup in the kitchen. Unfortunately, Shemp cannot read well and thinks soap is soup and proceeds to put it in the pan with other indigestible ingredients. They eat the soup and get sick while blowing out bubbles. The Stooges fall asleep and Junior is promptly kidnapped by his father.
The Stooges are awakened by Joan who notices that Junior is missing and that the door was open. She then sends the Stooges to her ex-husband's house to retrieve the baby. Amid the ensuing fracas, the Stooges' feet are crushed by a hammer-wielding Junior and they are smacked around by the husband. Eventually, Joan enters the apartment and she and her husband reconcile.
