Trivia

Homer turns down the first nanny thinking she's a man in drag. 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. See more »

Quotes

Barney: [as Sherry Bobbins is leaving] Bye Superman.
Lisa: Dad, do you think we'll ever see Sherry Bobbins again?
Homer: I'm sure we will, honey.
[She is sucked into a jet engine in the background]
Homer: I'm sure we will.

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.
