This weekly television series follows the Camden family as the minister father and stay-at-home mother deal with the drama of having seven children, ranging from toddlers to adults with families of their own. The friends, neighbors, and love interests of the various members of the family weigh heavily on the plot of the series, which seeks to address a real-life issue with each episode.
After a Jewish, high-voiced, woman from Flushing gets fired from her job and dumped by her boyfriend, Fran is mistaken as applying for a nanny for a widowed man with three children when she is stuck selling cosmetics in Manhattan. As she spends years there, she becomes great friends with the butler, Niles, and the three kids. She is good friends with the widowed man, and some romance sparks through the years.
Sylvia and Morty were the names of Fran Fine's parents on the show. They were also the names of Fran Drescher's parents in real life. See more »
The bedroom arrangement constantly changes. You can see them use the bedroom near Maxwell's room for all three kids through out the series. You can even see Brighton going into Maxwell's room when being told to go into his own. See more »

I am eleven years old. This may seem to young an age to understand The Nanny, but ever since the reruns came on television, I became hopelessly addicted to it. The Nanny is a show that is funny, romantic and very surprising. Where else can you find crazy Jewish humour? Fran Drescher stars as Fran Fine, a mid thirty year old woman who is fired from her job and dumped by her boyfriend. Her troubles take her to the doorstep of Maxwell Sheffield. The rest as we say, is history.
Charles Shaughnessy is Maxwell Sheffield. A widowed man with three children. He is not sure of Fran first but eventually she grows on him.
Other outstanding performances from Daniel Davis and Lauren Lane.
