Disney Channel Remade ‘Adventures In Babysitting,’ Now With More Selfies

It’s been a rough day around the Uproxx office. We just learned that after three controversial seasons, Disney Channel’s Dog with a Blog was canceled last month (oops). I didn’t see the episode, but I assume the finale was like “Felina” meets “Made in America,” but with a talking dog. Let’s see how our boy Stan took the news: “This is Stan, the talking dog, saying: So long.”

Please don’t go to a farm upstate, Stan.

In related news, Disney Channel, now with a dog-shaped hole in its schedule, remade 1987’s Adventures in Babysitting, with one of the stars from Girl Meets World filling in for Elisabeth Shue. Well, technically, it’s not a “remake,” it’s “inspired by,” and the plot has been tweaked so that it’s now: “two teen rival babysitters Jenny and Luci, team up to hunt down one of their kids who accidentally runs away into the big city without any supervision.”

The phrasing “hunt down one of their kids” makes it sound like the babysitters are going to kill the most dangerous animal of all, a little girl, but that’s probably not what’s going to happen. Not that it matters. Not that anything matters after the Dog with a Blog news. I will remember you, Stan.
