So what is the show about? Fancy Nancy focuses on a pretty cool 6-year-old, whose imagination and enthusiasm for all that is exquisite transforms the ordinary into the extraordinary — from her vast vocabulary to her creative and elaborate attire. Nancy is unapologetically herself and holds a steadfast vision of what she expects in the world, and her unwavering belief that she can accomplish her grand ideas encourages those around her to pursue all types of adventures
