  1. On the day this was posted, I watched a DVD of a Jack Benny Show featuring Elke Sommer. One of the skits featured her as a governess/au pair with an entrance via umbrella a la Mary Poppins. She sang the supercalifragilistic song but substituted cheeses mozzarella provolone etc. Next night, SNL did another variation of the same Mary Poppins song. An entertaining coincidence.
