'Heeeere's Jessie!' Get a First Look at the Disney Series' Season-Opening Shining Spoof
Disney Channel’s Jessie has scared up something special for its Season 2 premiere (airing this Friday at 8:30/7:30c) — a Halloween-themed installment that turns the title character into the nanny from hell. (Er, make that heck, kiddies!)
In “The Whining,” Jessie’s charges grow concerned that history is repeating itself after a scary old doorman tells them a building legend about a nanny who did “something terrible” to the kids in her care on Halloween — presumably something worse than not letting them watch Phineas and Ferb. Cue the spine-tingling, The Shining-ing clip below, with series star Debby Ryan looking positively mad. Press PLAY, then scroll down for more.
Jessie‘s haunting half-hour is part of Disney Channel’s “Monstober” programming block, which kicks off Friday at 8 with the A.N.T. Farm episode “mutANTfarm II” and also includes Gravity Falls‘ “Summerween,” Fish Hooks‘ “Unfinished Dog Business”/”Chicks Dig Vampires and, come Sunday, Good Luck, Charlie‘s “Le Halloween” (watch an exclusive clip) and Austin & Ally‘s “Costumes & Courage.” Then, on Friday-the-not-as-scary-12th, Disney premiers the original movie Girl Vs. Monster, starring Olivia Holt (Kickin’ It).
