Horrid Henry and the Bogey Babysitter (episode) is the tenth episode in Series 1 and the 10th episode overall.


Henry feels that he knows how to deal with babysitters, but when Rabid Rebecca turns up, Henry discovers that his usual tactics just don't work. He's then forced to be even more inventive by teaming up with his brother Perfect Peter to defeat her.


The episode begins with Mum washing the dishes while Henry and Peter are eating spaghetti. Dad told Mum he can't find a babysitter, so they decide to cancel it. Henry was happy that the babysitter was cancelled. Peter told Henry he scared them away. Henry asked why he should be nice to a bossy teenager who gets to watch TV and eat some sweets, Henry remembers the last time how he gets rid of the other babysitters like Crabby Chris, Mad Martin and Tetchy Tess. Dad finally found a babysitter: Rebecca. Henry said, 'Not Rabid Rebecca!' and shouted 'Noooo!!!', opening the title card.

Henry begs his parents not to let Rebecca babysit because she's horrible. Dad tells him that she isn't horrible, just strict. Someone knocks on the door, and Henry tells Peter not to answer it. Henry was too late to stop him, and he bets she eats elephants for breakfast. Rebecca almost steps on him, but she steps over him.
