I wish I had a nanny like Phoebe Pigalily!
18 October 2007 | by AaronDogSee all my reviews

Very charming and cute show, though it had definitely run its course by the time it was canceled after 54 episodes. I think if it had continued, it would have started to become stale. However, in spite of its short run, I believe it was at least as good as other "magical" shows like "Bewitched", and "I Dream of Jeannie". Better, really, because Phoebe's powers were always downplayed, and there was no annoying sub-plot involving sexual tension between her and "The Professor". Strictly G-rated stuff, though not in a cloying or naive way.

I was born the year "Nanny" came out, so I can only remember watching it in syndication. I also remember having a crush on Juliet Mills! She is still a beautiful woman, in her mid-60's. So is her younger sister, Hayley.

Juliet was perfectly cast here, in the role of Phoebe, the quintessentially English nanny with a touch of magic. She was basically a down-to-Earth version of Mary Poppins. I also loved her giant pea coat and hat, which were incorporated into the animated opening sequence, a la "The Partridge Family" opening, which involved a partridge and eggs.

Richard Long, who played "The Professor", had previously played the character of "Nick" in 'Big Valley'. A few years after "Nanny" was canceled, he died of a heart attack, even though he was only in his 40's.

Kim Richards, such a cute kid, went on to co-star with Ike Eisenmann in the "Witch Mountain" movies, ironically, playing a child with psychic powers! She grew up to be a gorgeous woman, too.

It is unfortunate that Trent Lehman (Butch) hung himself at the age of 20, in 1982. He had run into some tough times, including having his apartment burglarized, and chose to deal with it by hanging himself from a fence at his old elementary school. A sad ending to a very brief life.

On a happier note, David Doremus went on to achieve some success later on with The Waltons, and I believe he has had a fairly active career ever since.

Great show, overall. They don't make 'em like this anymore!
