** When Niles and C.C. ate Dr. Fu's cookies in "Making Whoopie", the kids are ''very'' freaked out:
--> '''Gracie:''' Should we worry about this?
--> '''Brighton:''' Based on previous experience, I hope it's just a phase...

* DiggingYourselfDeeper: Maxwell first implies Fran is old, fat and spooky in their fight at the start of Maggie's Boyfriend. C.C. also often ends up badmouthing someone right in front of them, thanks to Niles provoking her into it.

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 SeinfeldianConversation with Twiggy's adolescent daughter.

Some might say it was basically ''Series/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir'' with [[JewsLoveToArgue matzo balls]], but it was ''much'' more than that. ...Okay, [[IResembleThatRemark it wasn't much more than that]], but it was a solid series which ran for a respectable six seasons. It was popular among both children and adults in its heyday (most likely due to its truckload of {{Parental Bonus}}es).

Perhaps one of the greatest successes this show had was its big and colorful cast, ranging from the sarcastic British Butler to the JewishMother. The focus change from one actor to another of this big amount of different characters, helping to keep the stories fresh and avoid repetition.

It's worth noting that the show [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff was immensely popular in many countries outside USA]] (Argentina, Australia, Chile and Russia, to name a few), even getting the [[UpToEleven "the most viewed program" spot]] in some. This success leaded to [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_foreign_adaptations_of_The_Nanny many foreign adaptations]], to cash on the show popularity and give some local flavor.

In the US, it's had two SpiritualSuccessor series: the first, called ''Living With Fran'', which was not nearly as well received and only lasted two seasons. And the second being ''Series/HappilyDivorced''. It also has a "kiddiefied" half-Spiritual Successor on Creator/DisneyChannel, ''Series/{{Jessie}}'', created by the executive producer of ''The Nanny'' and directly inspired by the earlier show.
