Its story is simple: Mary Poppins (Julie Andrews) travels to Banks House to help Mickel (Matthew Garber) and Jane (Karen Dotrice ), because their busy parents haven't got enough time to see how much their children need them.
With this peculiar nany, the children see and live many adventures. For example, they saw Mary Poppins while she was talking with a dog. Also, she measured them with a magic measuring tape that indicates their attitude. Other fantastic time is when they met the best friend of Mary, Bert (Dick Van Dick), who is a chimmeny sweep and a painter, too. And the most important, they learned an awesome word:"Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious".
Finally, Mary Poppins leaves the Banks house flying with her umbrela. But after, she teaching a lot of important things to the childrens and also to their parents.
