Written by Jeffrey Scott

The Babies overhear Nanny talking about planning a trip, and are worried about who she plans on having take care of them while she's gone. The Babies imagine some horrible babysitters will be left in charge -- Baby Piggy thinking a giant Piggy will transform the nursery pink, and make all the Babies wear pink dresses like her; Baby Animal thinks King Kong will tear up the nursery; and Baby Fozzie imagines that Darth Vader will be their nanny "for the next million light years."

The Babies decide to give Nanny a pretend trip around the world, so that they don't need to be left with a sitter.

Most of the episode spoofs Jules Verne's Around the World in 80 Days, with Kermit as Phileas Frogg. Phileas makes a bet at the Reform Club -- he'll take Nanny around the world in 80 days, and if she still wants another vacation after that, then she can go. Nanny enjoys her imaginary trip around the world, but she still needs to take some time for herself.

In the end, the Babies are delighted with the babysitter that Nanny found -- her fun-loving sister, Aunt Fanny.
