THE BABYSITTERS CLUB

My secret shame: watching “The Babysitters Club” (BSC) re-runs.

Inspired by the novels written by Ann M. Martin, the book turned television drama was based on a gorup of middle school students living in the fictional town of Stoneybrook, Connecticut.

They form and run a local business called the “Babysitters Club” holding club meetings and helping parents find a babysitter using members in their club.

 

The main characters:

  • Kirsty Thomas: tom-boy & BSC club president
  • Claudia Kishi: token Asian & creative-thinker
  • Mary Anne Spier: innocent achiever
  • Stacey McGill: boy crazy trendanista
  • Dawn Schafer: spiritual soul activist
  • Mallory Pike: self-conscious red head
  • Jessi Ramsey: African-American junior member

For some reason I would never admit to watching this show but it wasn’t until the 1995 movie re-make (The Babysitters Club) starring Larisa Oleynik and Rachael Leigh Cook  that I would proudly sing the theme song.

What can I say… I’m a sucker for those storylines with a moral at the end!
