Fran Drescher returns for a star-studded third season of THE NANNY, available for the ﬁrst time on DVD. This year, the best-dressed nanny dates more men than she can handle, hosts a wild sweet sixteen party for Maggie, seeks treatment for her out-of-control shopping and ﬁnally gets Mr. Shefﬁeld to profess his love for her when he thinks their plane will crash. Featuring an array of guest stars including Elizabeth Taylor, this three-disc DVD set also contains the rarely seen but unforgettable animated "Oy to the World" holiday episode.
The Nanny may be many things, but subtle isn't one of them. Nanny Fine's whine and wardrobe are as loud as the laugh track, but her heart's in the right place in actor/producer Fran Drescher’s fish-out-of-water sitcom. In her third season, the "flashy girl from Flushing" continues to add pizazz to the staid Manhattan world of the Sheffields, while her mother, Sylvia (Renée Taylor), keeps up the pressure for her to marry a rich man. Granted, Fran’s debonair employer, Maxwell (Charles Shaughnessy), fits the bill--and the two do share a mutual attraction--except Fran has her sights set on a Jewish doctor rather than a Broadway producer. If she met her match too soon, the show wouldn’t have lasted six seasons. Instead, Fran falls for a con artist, a mobster, and New York Ranger Mike LaVoe. Romance aside, she bumbles into numerous (mis)adventures throughout this 27-episode collection, like a stint on Jeopardy (featuring Alex Trebek), an appearance on Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman (with Jane Seymour), an afternoon with Elizabeth Taylor, and a day in court, during which her senile Uncle Manny (Milton Berle) represents her.
Unlike many '90s comedies, The Nanny held onto the same cast, and year three comes compete with wisecracks from Max's assistant, C.C. (Lauren Lane), his kids (Nicholle Tom, Benjamin Salisbury, and Madeline Zima), Fran’s Yetta (Ann Guilbert), and Niles the Butler (Daniel Davis, a Yank with a spot-on English accent). Though extras aren't part of the package, this three-disc set includes the trippy animated special "Oy to the World" featuring talking dogs and lovesick clouds. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

I love "The Nanny" !!. Ms. Fran Fine has the comedic timing and facial mobility of a classic Lucille Ball. Sylvia is no bad actress herself! Read morePublished 23 days ago by Vivian L Gleaves

|Season 3 Booklet||
It wasn't missing. It was non-existent. Sony didn't put a insert with a list of episodes in the season 3 set. They tried to cut corners by not putting the insert in and stacking all the disks 1 on top of the other.

Given the advent of VHS by the time the Nanny was being done, you think they would have provisions written into the guest starts contracts about future ventures for redistribution of the show in some form.

I thought about this and it seems that a lot of DVDs have re-edited music from reading these discussions. My guess is that the companies (Sony, Paramount, etc) would have to pay royalties for every DVD sold probably leaving them with little to no profit.
Screw artistic integerity, I want my...
