The Uncanny Nanny

Date First Aired: October 2, 1976
The Secret Word Is: "Babe"
Song Performed: Ridin' a Rainbow
Sung By: Bugs
The Girl: Rebecca
Who Goes for Her: Bugs (and also P.T.)
The Villains: No real villain in this episode, although Rose "Nanny" Noony is suspected for a while!
Plot: A girl named Rebecca asks the Kids to help her mind an obnoxious boy named Grover, but they hand the youth over to the beloved Nanny Noony.  After hearing Nanny Noony may be near the breaking point, they try to find out what’s happened to the mischievous Grover, but end up with greatly varying stories about what they witnessed through Nanny Noony's window!
Do they do their introduction? Yes
Does Doc charm the girl?
No, but the routine is tried on Bugs with mixed results!
Does Bugs go bananas? Yes
Does P.T. use Seymour? Yes, to herald the start of the Nanny Noony song
Does Doomsday eat (or plan to eat) something weird? Yes, as are Doc and Bugs
Is there a Klinsinger Report? Yes
Do they go to the Krelvin Building? No
Notes: During the course of the episode it is revealed that Nanny Noony is still Klinsinger’s nanny!

Part of this episode is done in the Rashomon style, in which Doc, Doomsday, Klinsinger and Bugs each have a different story about what they saw through Nanny Noony’s window.  Even more amusing is the fact that each of them actually played the male intruding character in their own scenarios!

To appeal to and appease Nanny Noony, the boys sing a harmonized, A cappella song to her, which you can now play below!
