Series / Family Affair

Family Affair was a 1966-1971 Dom Com 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.

Today, the show is mostly remembered for creator-producer Don Fedderson - and Fedderson's boss, network CBS - insisting that the character of Buffy should remain a young, prepubescent child, even as her actress Anissa Jones entered puberty and got closer and closer to high school.

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