"Babysitter" is the third episode of Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law season four, and the thirty-fifth overall. It aired on October 15, 2006 on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim block. It was written by series creators, Michael Ouweleen and Erik Richter, produced by Evan W Adler, and directed by Richard Ferguson-Hull. There is no particular Hanna-Barbera series in this series except for the studio's works in general.
After Phil's shocking death, the firm falls into the control of Harvey, although it would be if Potamus and his new partner, Cubby, didn't have other ideas of how to run things. In the chaos, Reducto is also left organizing Peanut's birthday.
In order of appearance:
- The Moon (picture)
- Ol' Dirty Carny
- Reducto's shrink gun
- Little Bit O' Shine
- McSpillken Wonder Mop
- Choklit McQuilken
- Henshaw's White-Hot Firewater
- Devlin Stunt Game
- Poots & Bladders
Phil leaving the firm (and eventually being killed off) is full of inside jokes about his portrayer Colbert having to leave Harvey Birdman to star in his own show, The Colbert Report. The bus that kills Phil also advertises The Colbert Report. Reducto is also killed by a clown car for the same reason.
The score was composed by Michael Kohler.

Behind the scenes
- Harvey packs his suitcase with his dress from "Evolutionary War."
- The front of the Sebben & Sebben building says "An AOL-Time Warner Co." despite them having already departed ways.
- Phil and Aunt Phyllis got married in "Return of Birdgirl."
- Poots & bladders, Scribble, and Clueless are parodies of chutes and Ladders, Scrabble, and Clue.
- Phil's gravestone marks 1964 as his birth, which would make him 42. Although since this would also make him 3 years old in Birdman.
- The gravestone also doesn't include the year of his death, perhaps because he came back in "The Death of Harvey."
- Baba Looey's dead body can be seen at the morgue as he had died in "Guitar Control".
- Ol' Dirty Carny is spelled Old Dirty Carny.
- DeLisle is credited for voicing Debbie even though she doesn't appear and her voice doesn't come through the intercom.
