Family Affair was a 1966–71 CBS Dom Com about three children named Buffy, Jody, and Cissy who, having lost their parents, went to live with their bachelor uncle Bill Davis (Brian Keith) and his British butler/manservant Mr. French (Sebastian Cabot) in a swanky Manhattan apartment.

Today, the show is mostly remembered for both the network and creator-producer Don Fedderson 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.
