Trivia

"The Nanny" was more of a family affair than most shows since Fran Drescher's company produced the show and hired many friends and relatives to be regulars, guest stars and production staff. The show was also on six years without a major change in casting which was due in part to the congenial working conditions on the set of the show. See more »

Goofs

When people are leaving through the inner front door, they often turn right (exiting the stage) rather than going through the outer front doors. While not noticeable from side views of people leaving, his flaw can be seen from shots behind the characters as they leave. See more »

6 years of glee
25 February 2000 | by (Brasilia, Brasil) – See all my reviews

Fran Dresher is a very nice person and a very funny and talented actress, she made us laugh for six years and I think she should stay with us for much time. Everything about the show is great, the cast is very talented, the story-lines are never repetitive and always funny, they left us in 1999 and after six years of the beginning it was still a hit. Maybe it's for the best, because we'll always have good memories of the show, they didn't wait until people became tired of it.
