MARY POPPINS is a 1964 musical adventure, based on the series of books by P.L. Travers, in which a magical nanny comes to work in a household where the children feel neglected by their parents.

An elderly minor character uses the outdated discriminatory term, 'Hottentots', on a couple of occasions. The film is set in 1910 and the man thinks he is a naval commander in charge of a ship travelling the world. Although he uses the term to describe imagined enemies, it is not directed at any other character.

There are some scenes of very mild slapstick, for example as people bang their heads on fireplaces and ceilings.

The children are briefly scared by a beggar and a barking dog as they run through some dark alleys. However, they are quickly reassured by the appearance of a friend.

There is one brief reference to suicide as characters worry about someone who has gone missing. The man quickly turns up unharmed.
