EPISODE GUIDE--SEASON ONE--Wednesdays at 7:30pm
Nanny Will Do (Pilot)
Debut: She can't fly, and she's no magician, but this British nanny (Juliet Mills) is quite extraordinary all the same.

But this beguiling creature's wizardry captures the family's fancy first off then she champions their pooch as an entry in a local dog show. Peter Tewksbury directed from a script by series creator Thomas L. Miller and A.J. Carothers. The Everett children are Hal (David Doremus), Butch (Trent Lehman) and Prudence (Kim Richards).
