Family Affair was a popular situation comedy and a regular top 20 hit show produced by Don Fedderson Productions for CBS-TV during its five-year run from 1966-71.
Brian Keith stars as bachelor Bill Davis, a highly-paid engineering consultant who lives in a posh Manhattan apartment with his proper English manservant, Mr. Giles French (Sebastian Cabot). Davis' carefree existence is turned upside down when his brother and sister-in-law die suddenly in a tragic plane accident, leaving their three children orphaned. Davis becomes an instant father figure to six year-old twins, Buffy and Jody (Anissa Jones, Johnnie Whitaker) and their big sister, Cissy (Kathy Garver).
In Season Three, Jody accepts a dare to clip Mr. French's beard to get into an exclusive club, Buffy brings an early Christmas to a sick little girl, Cissy yearns to become a hippie, Mr. French is cast in a movie about Henry the VIII and Uncle Bill considers marriage to a beautiful (but child-hating) Italian girl.
John Williams joins the family for nine episodes, as Mr. French's equally unflappable butler brother.
Guest stars include Butch Patrick, Eve Plumb, Joe Flynn and Jamie Farr.
Family Affair: Season Three contains 28 episodes on 5 discs, including the three-part "Lost in Spain" and never-before-seen bonus features!
