''Family Affair'' was a [[TheSixties 1966]]-[[TheSeventies 1971]] DomCom about three children (Buffy, Jody, and Cissy) who, having lost their parents, go to live with their uncle Bill Davis and his butler/manservant "Mister" French.

Now mostly remembered for creator-producer Don Fedderson - and Fedderson's boss, network Creator/{{CBS}} - insisting that the character of Buffy [[NotAllowedToGrowUp never reach puberty]], even as her actress {{Creator/Anissa Jones}} progressed from crayons to a bustline.

A revival of the series starring Gary Cole and Tim Curry aired on TheWB during the 2002 season.
