Plot Synopsis

Based on the bestselling children's book series of the same name, FANCY NANCY is an animated family comedy that centers on six-year-old Nancy Clancy, a high-spirited young girl who likes to be fancy in everything from her advanced vocabulary to her creative, elaborate attire. A creator and true optimist, Nancy is unapologetically herself and holds a steadfast vision of what she expects in the world. Her unwavering belief that she can accomplish her grand ideas encourages those around her to pursue all types of adventures. With help from her sensible best friend Bree, Nancy uses ingenuity and resourcefulness to exemplify that even if life doesn't always go as planned, it's important to make the most of each day and encourage others to do the same. Nancy's family consists of her parents, Claire and Doug Clancy, a united team whose parenting style focuses on empowering their children to think for themselves and draw their own conclusions; three-year-old sister JoJo, who is always eager to take part in whatever Nancy is doing; and Frenchy, the family's pet dog who adores Nancy. In addition to her tight-knit family, Nancy's neighbor, Mrs. Devine, serves as a mentor to Nancy in all things fancy. Each half-hour episode features two 11-minute stories and includes original songs. Nancy demonstrates a love of language and invites young viewers to expand their vocabulary by learning French, or, in her mind, "fancy ways," to say everyday words. Music also plays an important role in the series, with almost every episode featuring new original songs showcasing a variety of musical styles ranging from pop and jazz to big band, classical and swing. The theme song, "Add a Little Fancy," is written and produced by Matthew Tishler and the original underscore is composed by TJ Hill. FANCY NANCY premiered on Disney Jr. on Friday, July 13, 2018 from 11-11:55am EDT, with four back-to-back stories.

The sophomore season of FANCY NANCY premiered on Friday, October 4, 2019 from 11:30am-Noon ET/PT, with back-to-back new stories: "The Return of Dudley" (11:30am), as Nancy accidentally becomes Freddy's new best friend when JoJo ditches him for her imaginary friend; and "Nancy Quits the Clancy's" (11:45am), as Nancy decides to live on her own in the playhouse.
Season 3 of FANCY NANCY premiered on Friday, November 12, 2021 at 3pm ET on Disney Junior. In the season opener, "Nancy the Auteur," Nancy and her friends make a movie, and they discover how hard it is to get her artistic vision on screen.
