"Village of the Darned" is episode 6 in season two of My Babysitter's a Vampire, and the 19th episode overall. It first aired on Disney Channel in the United States on August 24, 2012, and October 18, 2012 on Teletoon in Canada. It features the only appearance of Val Mudrap.
During the annual cookie drive for Jane's youth troop, a creepy, otherworldly Troop Leader conspires to rid the town of all adults, and lure the kids to its Eternal Playground. With all the grownups gone, Ethan and the gang have to take charge and stop the beast before Jane is lost forever, and the vampires get hungry enough to start preying on the young.
At Ethan’s house, they find him on the ground, having been knocked out by an enchanted Jane, and explain the situation. A girl named Muldvarp (an anagram for Val Mudrap) is half human, half mole, a charmer, and the keeper of the key to the underworld. She plans on leading the children to a door in the ground (the same door the kids were drawing), which will take them to the underworld. They rush to the site, where they watch Val open the door with a large key. After a pick-me-up drink from Benny, Erica and Sarah protect the kids, while the guys try to take down Val. Her key is also a magical staff, which allows her to take down Benny in one hit, and Rory in a few more. Left on his own, Ethan pushes Val into the door, where her hands become mole paws before she and the door disappear. The next day, Sarah asks Benny what was in the energizing drink he gave them and he admits that it was his blood, which unsettles Erica, as she enjoyed it very much.
