■ Prequel possibilities: musical or no musical?, Mary and Bert’s backstory, will we see her on Once a Upon A Time?

■ Was there a romance between Mary and Bert?
■ The Kids: little monsters, list of conditional love for their nanny.
■ Mr. Banks: so extreme and over the top.

■ Originally had 37 songs written.
■ Opening credits sequence, nannies blowing away, Admiral Boom is the worst neighbor ever.
■ “Spoonful of Sugar”: how do the kids have magic?
■ “Jolly Holiday”: penguins, farm animals, “there’ll be no bill”.
