Fancy Nancy (titled Fancy Nancy Clancy internationally) is an American computer-animated children's television series developed by Jamie Mitchell and Krista Tucker and produced by Disney Television Animation for Disney Junior based on the eponymous children's picture book series by Jane O'Connor with illustrations by Robin Preiss Glasser. The show follows the adventures of Nancy Clancy, a 6- (and then later 7-) year-old girl who loves everything fancy and French[1] while living with her family and friends in a fictional version of Plainfield, Ohio.

The series premiered on July 13, 2018, in the United States and in Canada the following day. Disney Junior renewed the series for a second season,[2] which premiered on October 4, 2019, in the United States.

On September 18, 2019, a third season was commissioned,[3] and Krista Tucker confirmed that it would be the last for the entire series.[4] The third season began simulcasting on Disney Junior, DisneyNOW and Disney+ on November 12, 2021.[5] The series finale aired on February 18, 2022.


Six-year-old Nancy Clancy enjoys fancy and French things that range from her outfit to her creative elaborate attire as she plans to teach some fanciness to her ordinary family and her friends.

Critical reception

Alex Reif of called Fancy Nancy "full of bright colors, fun characters, and musical numbers," asserting, "Like the beloved book series, kids are going to think Disney’s Fancy Nancy is très magnifique. Nancy will inspire viewers to be themselves and to make every day extra special. Her interests gravitate towards things that are pink and sparkly, but her personality is optimistic and friendly. Not only will kids expand their vocabulary, but they will also see a great role model for overcoming personal struggles and being a better friend."[6] Emily Ashby of Common Sense Media gave Fancy Nancy a grade of 4 out of 5 stars, complimented the educational value, citing self-expression and individuality, and praised the depiction of positive messages and role models, stating the show promotes respect and positivity across its characters.[7]
