Goofs
When people are leaving through the inner front door, they often turn right (exiting the stage) rather than going through the outer front doors. While not noticeable from side views of people leaving, his flaw can be seen from shots behind the characters as they leave.

The bedroom arrangement constantly changes. You can see them use the bedroom near Maxwell's room for all three kids through out the series. You can even see Brighton going into Maxwell's room when being told to go into his own.

Q
What are the lyrics to the theme song?
A
She was working in a bridal shop in Flushing, Queens, 'till her boyfriend kicked her out in one of those crushing scenes. What was she to do? Where was she to go? She was out on her fanny. So over the bridge from Flushing to the Sheffields door, she was there to sell make-up but the father saw more. She had style. She had flair. She was there. Thats how she became the Nanny. Who would have guessed that the girl we described was just exactly what the doctor prescribed? Now, the father finds her beguiling (Watch out C.C.) The kids are actually smiling, such joie de vivre She's the lady in red when everybody else is wearing tan. The flashy girl from Flushing. The Nanny named Fran.
