A highly underrated show from when I was growing up, I loved this show which starred Juliet Mills and Richard Long. Hulu has had season one up for a while, but I see that now they have season two. Give it a try. In this episode Nanny and the kids help an old puppeteer.
The premise of the show as posted at Wikipedia.Com:
The series starred Juliet Mills as Nanny Phoebe Figalilly, Richard Long as Professor Harold Everett, and Elsa Lanchester as Aunt Henrietta. Figalilly was apparently psychic, and had regular flashes of what was often more than intuition (she frequently knew who was ringing the doorbell before the bell even rang). There was the vague suggestion that she may have been at least several hundred years old and more than human, which the children thought they discovered in an episode after they saw a photo of Phoebe that looked like it was taken a century earlier. Figalilly watched over Professor Everett and his three children: Hal, the intellectual tinkerer, played by David Doremus, Butch, the middle child, played by Trent Lehman, and Prudence, the youngest, played by Kim Richards. Patsy Garrett had the recurring role of nosey neighbor Mrs. Fowler. Midway through the brief first season, a yellow 1930 Model A Ford, "Arabella," joined the series.
