Former Broadway star Nan (Nanette Fabray) married widowed Hollywood writer Dan McGovern (Wendell Corey) and inherited his (initially) rude and indifferent children Nancy (Jacklyn O’Donnell) and Buddy (Bobby Diamond) and housekeeper Mrs Harper (Doris Kemper). Dan’s nickname for his new bride was “Nanny Goat”.
Episodes related events in their day-to-day lives and Nan’s trials and tribulations in dealing with the kids and housekeeper.
Mrs Harper and the kids eventually adapted to, and accepted, Nan, with Nan taking over many of the household chores.
Stories were loosely based on real-life incidents drawn from the lives of Nanette Fabray and her husband, writer Ranald MacDougall (who had three children from a former marriage).
Also known as The Nanette Fabray Show and Westinghouse Playhouse (the series was sponsored by Westinghouse Appliances).
