Nanny Yvonne[edit]

Anybody notice how Nanny Yvonne hardly EVER gets chosen? What is her specialty, her expertise? Every episode I watch, Head Nanny Lillian chooses one of the other two. I think that could be an interesting portion of this entry.--Jaylectricity 01:22, 6 January 2007 (UTC)

To be fair, Deb and Stella have a little more experience under the belts in comparison to Yvonne.--Conquistador2k6 22:27, 10 January 2007 (UTC)
And of course one week after I wrote that message about Yvonne she gets picked for that week's show.--Jaylectricity 22:43, 19 January 2007 (UTC)

Speaking of Yvonne, if you go to the official website's episode descriptions and look at all of the pictures of the nannies notice that it is actually 2 nannies with the same name. Does anyone know why the original was replaced?--70.162.46.19 00:54, 26 January 2007 (UTC)

Episodes[edit]

I think someone should make a table for the list of episodes.--72.208.195.165 00:09, 30 May 2007 (UTC)

I started the table but I don't want to work on it anymore. Can somebody finish it?--72.208.195.191 16:03, 28 June 2007 (UTC)

Seperation[edit]

I think the episode list should be seperated into its own article as it seems big enough for its own article. Do you think this would work?. Mythdon (talk) 06:02, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

Nanny 911 the game[edit]

What about the recently released game? http://www.bigfishgames.com/download-games/6239/nanny-911/index.html should it be added to this page? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 201.82.51.102 (talk) 02:03, 22 January 2010 (UTC)

dOES ANYONE KNOW IF NANNY DEB HAS BEEN A NANNY IN HE USA AS HER ACCENT IS VERY AMERICAN CONSIDERING SHE IS FROM NORTH WALES? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.223.253.139 (talk) 12:53, 3 February 2011 (UTC)

i saw a swedish concept that looked rather similar[edit]

it had 3 nannies and in each episode one of them visited a family. then there was a norwegian version of that concept that aired on the same channel but norwegian authorities banned the production of further episodes.(extreme but true.) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 84.208.59.120 (talk) 23:13, 11 June 2012 (UTC)

Expert editing required[edit]

This article seems to have suffered multiple vandalism since its creation. Going through the history it's very difficult to determine which edits are accurate and which are not. The majority of edits have been done by IP editors who have neither left edit summaries to clarify why certain edits were made nor properly sourced their edits. I've never watch the series myself and I'm therefore unable to determine the factual accuracy of those edits. Expert help needed.EagerToddler39 (talk) 14:39, 28 October 2012 (UTC)

Episode Information[edit]

I think we need more information about the episodes, other than the names of the family members who were featured in each one, and who helped them. Who agrees?

"Called"[edit]

This article is about an American TV show. Per WP:ENGVAR, American English should be used. In the U.S., Chris and Pat do not have a "son called Jim". Rather, there son IS Jim, much as they do not live in a "city called Seattle", they live in Seattle.

I'd also started converting the "boy" and "girl" to "son" and "daughter". Saying someone "has a boy called Mike" sounds distinctly foreign to my U.S. ears. Instead, "has a son, Mike" sounds more domestic. - SummerPhDv2.0 13:41, 6 July 2016 (UTC)

Again, this is an American TV show. On this website called Wikipedia, we use the variety of the language called English used in the country closely tied to the show. This show is produced in and for the country called America. People in the country called America, called Americans, do not say that their "son is called Bobby". Instead, they say their "son is Bobby" or refer to "their son, Bobby".
As we seem to have an editor with WP:OWN issues, reverts to "called" and "boy"/"girl" will be undone, with warnings, page protection and/or blocks as needed. - SummerPhDv2.0 14:48, 24 October 2016 (UTC)

As it turns out, there is a good bit of vandalism throughout the article. While there doesn't seem to be an easy way to verify all of the kids' ages, names, etc., a few of them are listed at IMDb and other places. Additionally, there are an improbable number of twins, triplets and quaduplets. Prior to my cleanup, there were three kids who were "twins". We have family names that don't match. We have a two part episode listed in a single week. We have the Dickson family "Kirsten has an eight-year-old daughter, Jacqueynne and a seven-year-old son, Colin.", which IMDb says is "Ann and Jim, the adoptive parents of thirty-two kids", which I guess is supposed to be our Silcock family "Ann and Jim have a group of boys, who were all born with disabilities."

I have zero confidence in any of the material in the episode guide. Much of the "information" there is trivial in any case: kids' names, exact age of each child, etc. Unless there are specific objections, I will be removing all of it. If anyone would like to rebuild the list, they are more than welcome to. - SummerPhDv2.0 14:37, 25 October 2016 (UTC)

FYI[edit]

FYI I've been looking at edits made by the IP address 70.44.149.2 and so far every one I looked at has needed to be reverted I see that IP edited this article and my first impression is the edits are introducing incorrect information but I'd like someone with more familiarity with the subject to confirm.--S Philbrick(Talk) 02:59, 26 October 2016 (UTC)

There is no question. The IP's edits here were clearly vandalism: changing all of the family names to Smith and Miller. - SummerPhDv2.0 03:18, 26 October 2016 (UTC)
