The Flying Nun was a one of the gimmick sitcoms on the 60s. It was about Sister Bertrille, a young nun who had the ability to fly. She only wore 90 pounds and when the wind was right she could put on her nun's hat (it had wing-like sides) and fly. In 1967, she arrived at the Convent San Tanco in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The Reverand Mother Superior Plaseato, who ran the place, was a strict conservative who usually had to put up with Bertrille's mishaps. Sister Jaqueline, a wise nun with a sense of humor (who narrated the show) became Bertrille's friend. She was also buddies with Sister Sixto, a Puerto Rican nun who was struggling with her English language, and Sister Ana, another younger nun. She also made friends with Carlos Ramirez, a playboy who attendted the services at the Convent each Sunday.
