Mary Poppins is the name of a novel published in 1934 by P.L. Travers that launched a series of books about a magical English nanny. It is most popularly known as a 1964 Disney film starring Julie Andrews.


  • The Sesame Street character Super Nanny is a reference to Mary Poppins in name (she's truly Penny Pipkins), demeanor and attire.
  • In an Ask Oscar sketch, Oscar states that "super-cali-fragile-istic-yucka-alidocious" is the longest grouch word, referencing the film's song, "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious."
  • In the special Julie on Sesame Street, Ernie and Bert spot Andrews out on the street and try to remember where they've seen her. They recall her being from a movie about an "English girl" and "the umbrella over the rooftop," but Ernie ends up guessing Mary, Queen of Scots.
  • In Tales of a Sixth-Grade Muppet, after Davners expresses concern about whether Gonzo will still want him in their act if he gets turned back into a normal sixth-grader, Gonzo reassures him by stating "I don't care if you come back as Mary Poppins!" Fozzie then comments; "Oh I love Mary Poppins!"
