Question So Let Me Get This Show Straight...It Was Basically A Mary Poppins Ripoff?

Is that correct?

Nanny & the Professor is one of my all-time favorite shows. The magic angle was subtle and most of the scripts settled in nicely, resulting in a well-cast and well-executed sitcom -- really a delightful series.

It had much more in common with other domestic sitcoms of its time than it did with Mary Poppins, in my opinion, and was a cut above most. A series that just doesn't get the exposure it deserves anymore, sadly.

Yes, but with superficially late 60's sensibilities/lingo and Carnaby Street -inspired fashion (that whole Austin Powers look).

I never thought of it that way and still don't think it is. But even if it were, who cares--this is a good family show in its own right.
