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

Homer turns down the first nanny thinking she's a man in drag ( undoubtedly inspired by Mrs. Doubtfire). Interestingly, in the original Mary Poppins
