Drescher's 1997 film ''The Beautician and the Beast'' is a bite-sized version of the series; basically, it's what you get when you drop Fran Fine and Joseph Stalin in [[{{Ruritania}} Whateverstan]], stand back and watch what happens.

A FishOutOfWater family sitcom (1993-1999) starring the raspy-voiced, big-haired flashy Fran Drescher. The pitch was also conceived by Drescher, inspired by ''Theatre/TheSoundOfMusic'' as well as a conversation with Twiggy's adolescent daughter. The series ran for a respectable six seasons. Perhaps one of the greatest successes this show had was its big and colorful cast, ranging from the sarcastic British Butler to the JewishMother.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: In a first season episode Fran celebrates her 30th birthday. Shortly afterwards her refusal to admit to being older than 29 became one of the shows biggest running gags (Maxwell says at one point even the FBI couldn't figure out her real age).

** The first season was a standard sitcom, which fans now consider trite and dull. Fran and the producers decided that the show should be more like ''ILoveLucy''. One of the rare cases where {{Flanderization}} of the characters ''helped'' a show more than harmed it.

* ItWillNeverCatchOn: The flashback scenes in "The Kibbutz" show Fran and Val scoffing at the idea of "frozen yogurt" as they watch a young Maxwell mentioning in an interview how glad he was passing on [[{{Cats}} a musical about singing cats]] at C.C.'s advice. Fran also thinks Mrs. Spielberg's son, [[Creator/StevenSpielberg Steven]], is a dork. Sylvia then tells her that [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Milken Mrs. Milken's son]] is very smart, but Fran's reluctant because he stole money out of her locker.
