If you're expecting something "classical", "a la Disney" don't watch this TV series. It's a really mad version of well known Poppins saga. Everything is happening somewhere in early 80's (very good design by the way) in a idyllic suburbia filled with really abnormal people. And Poppins is landing and making everything even more crazy! She's able too screen hallucinations, "make dreams come true" etc. The movie is filled with pop songs, dance numbers etc. Actually this kind of "children movies" were quite typical in SU in 80's. Surreal, crazy, filled with pop songs. I was preteen boy then and didn't understand them at all but now I think they were hilarious.
