Storyline

Marge Simpson is starting to loose hair due to the stress of running the Simpson household. The family decide to get a nanny and are approached by Shary Bobbins, a Mary Poppins figure in Victorian attire, complete with a flying umbrella. The British nanny seems to bring joy to everyone with her London music hall style singing and eccentric charm. Yet working in the Simpson household soon starts to cause problems for the kindly nursemaid... Written by Joe

Trivia

Homer turns down the first nanny thinking she's a man in drag ( undoubtedly inspired by Mrs. Doubtfire). Interestingly, in the original Mary Poppins (1964) movie, which this episode spoofs, many of the nannies in the large queue of applicants for the job at the start of the film were actually men in drag.

Quotes

Homer: All right, Marge. We'll get your nanny. And to pay for it, I'll give up the Civil War Recreation Society I love so much.
[cut to Moe's]
Moe: All right, Homer's out. We'll need a new General Ambrose Burnside.
Barney: I'm not too fond of our Stonewall Jackson, either.
Apu: The South shall COME AGAIN.

A Classic Simpsons, Always Fun to Watch,
21 April 2015 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Simpsoncalifragilisticexpiala-Annoyed-Grunt-cious is a brilliant Simpsons episode with a very well written storyline and loads of very funny scenes. The episode is a very funny parody of Mary Poppins, filled with many very memorable songs and hilarious quotes from the characters. Compared to some of the other episodes in the eight season it is a bit weak, simply because it is so good, it's great on it's own but in comparison to those episodes it can appear somewhat mediocre. Maggie Roswell's voice as Shary Bobbins is outstanding, definitely the best role she has ever been given on this show, I remember the first time I watched this I thought it was Julie Andrews, if that dosen't show how good it is I don't know what does. Funny and the shows best musical episode by far, Simpsoncalifragilisticexpiala-Annoyed-Grunt-cious is very enjoyable.

The Simpsons hire the perfect nanny to help around the house after Marge starts losing hair from stress.
