    The Nanny

    The Nanny

    Follow
    CBS (ended 1999)
    When Fran Fine entered the Sheffield's residence in Park Avenue selling cosmetics, little did she know about how much she was going to change their lives. The Jewish girl from Queens got a job as the nanny for Maxwell Sheffield's (a Broadway producer) three kids: Maggie, Brighton and Gracie. But the Sheffields got more than just a nanny: they got Sylvia, Fran's compulsive eater, nosy mother; Val, Fran's best friend with a low I.Q.; and Yetta, Fran's grandmother. She gave joy to the house that had been blue ever since Mrs. Sheffield passed away, and quickly became friends with Niles, the butler, who is always aware of everything that is going on in the house. The attraction between Fran and Mr. Sheffield became evident as the years went by, for C.C.'s (Maxwell's business partner, who always had a crush on him) torture. Many people consider The Nanny as being the 90's version of "I Love Lucy". The show premiered in November, 1993 as a late addition to CBS's Wednesday fall lineup. The show quickly became a hit, moving to Monday nights on its second season and remaining there until its third. Then CBS moved it back to Wednesday nights, trying to improve the ratings for that night - a move that made CBS hold the time slot for the first time in 25 years, since Sonny & Cher! But ratings started to fall, and during the 5th season the producers decided to end its run, giving it one last season. The 6th season ran until March, when the show went into a hiatus. The series finale was shown before the remaining episodes, which were shown later during June. During its 6-year run, The Nanny was nominated for 11 Emmys, winning only one in 1995 for best costume designs. Fran Drescher was nominated twice for best actress: in 1996 and 1997. Renée Taylor also got a nomination as best supporting actress in 1996. A Fran Drescher doll was released during the show's run, featuring some of the outfits that were one of the show's trademarks.

    Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman was a show that focused on Dr. Mike, a woman doctor in a time when that was unheard of. It started with her journey to Colorado Springs to be the town's physician after her father's death in 1868. The show focused around the town that she loved, treated and it also focused on the three children, Matthew (Chad Allen), Colleen (Erika Flores, later Jessica Bowman) and Brian Cooper (Shawn Toovey), whom she had to raise after their mother died from a rattle snake bite. In the later years, the show focused on Dr. Mike and Sully (Joe Lando) who got married and had a daughter towards the end of the shows successful run. There have been two movies made for television, and fans are gathering together in an effort that a third Dr. Quinn movie be produced.moreless

    Charles Schulz's classic comic strip Peanuts started in 1950. Fifteen years later, A Charlie Brown Christmas debuted. When The Little Christmas Special that Could proved to be an unexpected success, the stage was set for successive television specials. To date, over forty have been made. The Charlie Brown specials focus on one round-headed kid, his goofy but intelligent beagle, and their vast array of friends. Each has distinctive qualities: Lucy, the crabby, self-proclaimed psychiatrist; Linus, the blanket-toting theologian; Schroeder, the Beethoven worshiper whose black piano keys are only painted on; Peppermint Patty, the tomboy whose affections toward "Chuck" are only outweighed by her sports abilities; and so on. The wit, the charm, the pleasantness of these specials make them appropriate not just for children, but for the whole family.moreless

    CBS (ended 1994)
    Cadillacs and Dinosaurs is the brainchild of Mark Schultz, who originally created the series in comic book format under the title Xenozoic Tales in the year 1986. The television series came to be through the marketing of Marvel Comics, when (years later) the company had acquired the rights to the property and attempted a revival of the popularity it once held in comic format. The series followed the exploits of survival-savvy garage mechanic Jack Tenrec, (who had a passion for restoring classic car shells, mainly those of Cadillacs) and his often-reluctant companion, the lovely foreign ambassador Hannah Dundee (who hired Jack as a liason while she attempted to create clear communication between her land and the modern civilization) as they confronted serious issues facing the futuristic environment that they (and the rest of humanity) had come to inhabit alongside many dinosaurs that were long thought to be extinct. Jack, leading his crew (a band of ecological freedom fighters known as the Mechanics), squared off against opposition in the form of the Council of Governors, the tyrannical Wilhelmina Scharnhorst and her nefarious henchmen among others. The show dealt with many strong ecologicial (one major focus was the question of how the dinosaurs managed to re-emerge after they were thought to be extinct) and political issues that were central to the plot development. As a result of that coupled with the placement amidst a programming schedule that consisted of shows mainly geared toward a younger demographic, it went virtually unnoticed. This show boasted superb animation and was surprisingly well-written. Many fans who can remember viewing it note the superior quality as one of the reasons they first started to enjoy the short-lived series. In total, Cadillacs and Dinosaurs lasted for one full season (13 episodes) and was never considered for renewal.moreless

    The Weird Al Show was a show that used to air Saturdays on CBS. The show included "Weird Al" Yankovic, The Hooded Avenger (Brian Haley), Madame Judy (Judy Tenuta), J.B. Toppersmith (Stan Freberg), and Al's pet, Harvey the Wonder Hamster. By FCC requirement, the show was educational, but it did have a lot of Al's very weird humor, and some guest stars and musical acts. Unfortunately, in January 1998, CBS cancelled all shows in the Saturday Morning lineup. The show was released on DVD on August 15, 2006.

    Theme Song Lyrics Oh, this is a story 'bout a guy named Al, And he lived in a sewer with his hamster pal, But the sanitation workers really didn't approve, So he packed up his accordion and had to move To a city in Ohio where he lived in a tree, And he worked in a nasal decongestant factory, And he played on the company bowling team, And every single night he had a strange, recurring dream Where he was wearing lederhosen in a vat of sour cream, But that's really not important to the story.

    Well, the very next year he met a dental hygienist With a spatula tattooed on her arm (on her arm), But he didn't keep in touch, then he lost her number, Then he got himself a job on a tater tot farm, And he spent his life savings on a split-level cave 20 miles below the surface of the Earth (of the Earth), And he really makes a mighty fine jelly bean and pickle sandwich For what it's worth.

    Then one day Al was in the forest, trying to get a tan When he heard the tortured screaming of a funny little man. He was caught in a bear trap and Al set him free, And the guy that he rescued was grateful as can be, And it turns out he's a big-shot producer on TV, So he gave Al a contract, and what do you know? Now he's got his very own Weird Al Show!moreless

    CBS (ended 1994)
    Based on the highly popular comic strip by Jim Davis, Garfield and Friends was considered the best long-running cartoon on CBS. This Saturday morning series featured the adventures of that lovable, hungry fat cat Garfield, his yellow dog friend Odie, and their cartoonist bachelor master Jon Arbuckle. Garfield cartoons shared the spot with a new cartoon series created for this series called U.S. Acres (also based on a comic strip by Jim Davis). U.S. Acres was a cartoon about a group of barnyard animals who run a farm. The leader was Orson Pig, the bookish and perceptive pig. His friends had many different qualities: Wade Duck was the scaredy-cat duck who runs away from everything, no kidding; Booker was a crafty little chick whose main goal was to chase a worm, and his brother Sheldon was nothing more than an egg with two legs sticking out; Roy Rooster was the practical joking rooster who puts everyone in trouble with his jokes; and two sheep, Bo and Lanolin, were always bickering with each other about nearly everything. Bo being a nice guy and Lanolin a cruel girl. Each episode, they had to protect the farm from Orson's big bad brothers and a crafty weasel. Before this series, Garfield cartoons were shown as yearly specials on CBS, and the specials were so great that CBS decided to turn Garfield into a cartoon series. In the first season, each 30-minute episode was packed with three 8-minute shorts, two Garfield shorts and one U.S. Acres short. In the second season, Garfield and Friends expanded to an hour, consisting of four Garfield cartoons and two U.S. Acres cartoons. It remained at this format until the show ended in 1994. 'Garfield:The Movie' was released on June 11,2004 & so far has made over $75 million at the box office. Thanks to the success of the movie, 20th Century Fox is now working on a CGI/live action movie version of 'Alvin & The Chipmunks' & coming to theathers on December 25th is 'Fat Albert', which is of course a live action version of the classic 1974-1984 cartoon 'Fat Albert & The Cosby Kids'.

    Muppet Babies

    CBS (ended 1990)
    Muppet Babies was a very successful cartoon series in its own right. This show basically featured Jim Henson's famous Muppets as babies. Each episode, each of the Muppet Babies had adventures that their imaginations take them on. Often however, their imaginations would sometimes get the better of them, all for comic effect. Since Muppet Babies first hit the airwaves in 1984 it was instantly a favorite of its demographic. However, the show had appealed to viewers of all ages, child, teen, and adult. Let's face it, the 80's was a time of change, technology, and adventure. Muppet Babies was no expectation. In a decade when most television shows promoted a toy line or clothing this show had nothing at all to sell, no gimmick, just pure education. Now here is a little tidbit about the iconic Muppet Babies which was a very successful cartoon series in its own right. This show basically featured Jim Henson's famous Muppets as babies. Each episode, each of the Muppet Babies had adventures that their imaginations take them on. Often however, their imaginations would sometimes get the better of them, all for comic effect. The featured Muppets were Baby Kermit, Piggy, Fozzie, Gonzo, Rowlf, Animal, Scooter, and a new character, Skeeter, Scooter's look-alike sister. Occasionally they had visits from Baby Bunsen and Beaker, and even Statler and Waldorf came to visit, and later we see a recurring appearance by a "baby" version of Bean Bunny from Tale of the Bunny Picnic. The moral glue that held these Muppets together was Nanny (voiced by Barbara Billingsley of Leave it to Beaver fame), a character whose body was only shown from the waist down and we all remember the green striped socks. The one thing that made the Muppet Babies memorable were not the Muppets themselves, but the live action that was inter-cut with the cartoon action (consisting mostly of film and TV clips, etc). Also, the Muppet Babies were inspired by a small scene in the 1984 film, "The Muppets Take Manhattan". In 1986, the show was extended to an hour to accommodate another cartoon series Little Muppet Monsters, and then in 1987, new episodes were shown with repeats of previous Muppet Babies episodes. Little Muppet Monsters After the huge success of Muppet Babies CBS decided to expand the series by adding an extra half hour which was to be filled by a new show called "Little Muppet Monsters". The whole hour would be dubbed "Jim Henson's Muppet's, Babies and Monsters". The mixture of live action puppetry and animation featuring Muppet characters proved too much and the show was pulled by Jim Henson, after only two shows had aired. After the end credits and logos were shown, there was an ending segment in which eventually Animal shouts "Gooooooooo bye-bye!". Reruns were shown on Nickelodeon through the early to mid 1990's on Nick. Jr at 10:30 - 11:00 A.M. In 1997 Nick Jr stoped airing re-runs to acominadate the new series Franklin Some of the first Nick Jr shows that aired with Muppet Babies were [show]The Busy World of Richard Scarry (9:30-10:00 a.m. and 1:00-1:30 p.m.), Allegra's Window, Little Bear, Gullah Gullah Island Also on the NICK JR. schedule are Rupert (10:00-10:30 a.m.), Jim Henson's Muppet Babies (10:30-11:00 a.m.) and Papa Beaver's Storytime (1:30-2:00 p.m.).

Muppet Babies taught lessons to children in many ways. The most powerful was through song. An example if from an episode in which Kermit does not know what he want to be when he grown up. Be be be what you want to be Do do do what you want to do Be be be what you want to be It's up to you wo-wo-wo-woah SCOOTER: Be a pilot and go for a flight Take us all to dinner in your jet some night PIGGY: Or be the first farmer in history To figure out a way to grow an ice cream tree ANIMAL: "Yummy" GONZO: What about an international spy?

Such shows include Baby Looney Tunes, Tiny Toon Adventures, The Flintstone Kids, The New Archies, A Pup Named Scooby Doo, Yo, Yogi, and Tom and Jerry Kids. Six of these shows were made in between 1984 (Muppet Babies) to 1990. Characters: Kermit: He is none-other then a small green frog with a big imagination. He is the leader of the group and his best friend is Fozzie. Frequently he has his famous gulp when things are not going as planned. It usually goes something like this, "Oh boy..GULP!" Fozzie: Wacko, Wacko, Wacko! Is what Fozzie frequent expresses after one of his jokes. Most jokes he says are actually not funny, but he has high spirits of becoming a comedian. Miss Piggy: This little piglet has a huge crush on Kermit the frog. She expresses her passion and love for him in many ways; verbally or emotionally. Her dream is to be Mrs.Kermit (while Kermit actually does not have the same "feelings" for her that she does for him. Gonzo: A mystery is right here on what this little guy is. Some thing he is a cross-over between a monkey and alien, but who really knows!? He has a huge crush on Miss Piggy and hopes that he and her will have kids someday. Gonzo sometimes gets a little annoying to the group, but he finds some way to make it up to them! Rowlf: A musician in the making. You hardly even seen Rowlf without playing his white piano. He is more of they shy type, but finds it easy to express himself through songs. He is more of a loner, but he is a great friend to all the nursery children. Animal: Many ask what kind of animal he is, but no one knows. He is a loud non speaking Muppet who is very energetic. Many times you will see him hanging on the nursery chandler while playing hide and seek. At the end of many episode he will have the last word weather is is an action or a big hearty laugh. Nanny: What oh what would the nursery be without her supervision? She teaches lessons to the Muppet Babies through tough-love, but they always get the point. We never learned what she looked like beyond her neck. She is famous for her green and white striped socks that only the babies were able to see.

There is no news about one, but if it were to be released it would be under Disney. Disney has already started releasing their animation library of television shows i.e Ducktales, Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers, Gummi Bears, Talespin, Darkwing Duck, and Gargoyles. The problem is that Muppet Babies featured many clips from various movies which have an expensive price due to copy rights. If you like this show you will also like Baby Looney Tunes. "Go bye-bye!
