Family Affair 1966 Uncle Bill meets Jody for the first time and Sissy for the first time in many years. This wonderful family oriented series which ran from 1966-1971 explored the trials of well-to-do civil engineer and bachelor Bill Davis (Brian Keith), as he attempted to raise his brother's orphaned children in his luxury New York City apartment. Davis's stuffy English butler Mr. Giles French (Sebastian Cabot), also had adjustments to make as he was usually saddled with the responsibility of caring for 15-year-old Cissy (Kathy Garver) and the 6-year-old twins, Jody (Johnny Whitaker) and Buffy (Anissa Jones). Brian Keith was nominated for an Emmy three times for his role as Uncle Bill. On August 28, 1976, after partying all night at the beach town of Oceanside, California, Anissa Jones was found dead in the bedroom of a friend's house, she was only 18. The coroner's report listed her death as accidental drug overdose. Found in her system were cocaine, PCP, methaqualone and Seconal. The coroner who examined Jones reported that she had died from one of the most severe drug overdoses he had ever seen. In 1984, her brother, Paul Jones, also died of a drug overdose.

Tiger head mounted on the wall?? Obviously this was before I went into animal rights activist mode, or I never would have watched it past the first episode!

This was the first sitcom that addressed a tragedy: recently orphaned children. I can't say I liked this show, though. Brian Keith seemed a little bit on the wooden side to me.

Anissa Jones also died from a drug over dose very young.

Brian Keith committed suicide.

I wished I was orphaned to a hi-rise in ny with a butler.

I can't agree with the orphaned part, but I'd love to be back in NY and with a butler yet!

Kathy Garver is still alive.

Thanks for that update Misty. Kathy is indeed one of the last two surviving cast members of the series, along with Johnny Whitaker, who shares the same birthday with her, though he's 14 years her junior.
