It's a Holiday Classic!!!
16 October 2005 | by See all my reviews

Throughout the 6 years The Nanny was on TV, it was a tribute to the classic sitcoms that came before it. She's paid tribute to everything from The Dick Van Dyke show..(Ann Guilbert who played Millie on there was Grandma Yetta), to Laverne and Shirley. What sitcom in the '90's featured Ray Charles, Donald O'Connor, Lanie Kazan, Shari Lewis & Lambchop, Carol Channing, Tyne Daley, Twiggy, Milton Berle .. the list goes on and on.

Given all that, it should be no surprise the Nanny Cartoon Christmas Special is a tribute to all the classic Holiday cartoons. In a matter of seconds, Fran (who is walking Chester the dog) gets dragged up and down the stairs, up to the bedroom and out the window, gets blown around outside, and hit on the head by a bell ringer's bell (Dorothy had it easy). This leads to the north pole, where Fran and Brighton (who has lost his Christmas spirit of giving) meet Santa and his elf (Mr. Sheffeild and Niles). The villain, as in the show, is CC the Abombinable Babcock (a big storm cloud).

It has some classic lines and moments.. My favorites.. FRAN: (commenting on everything at the north pole being edible) "It's a test.. I know it's a test" BRIGHTON: "...and it's all FREE!" FRAN: "I fail!"

(Fran sees Santa's castle and is impressed) THE ELF: "Well.. Santa is the second richest man in the North Pole" FRAN: "Who's the richest?" THE ELF: "The dentist" (Rimshot) (Fran and the Elf laugh) FRAN: "Is he single?"

(Fran confronts CC) FRAN: "LISTEN SWEETIE" (CC blows Fran away and into Santa's castle and lands on Mr. Sheffields desk) FRAN: (to CC) "We'll talk later honey"

I loved The Nanny from day one, and this has become one of my favorite holiday specials of all time!
