Question: Who played Buffy on Family Affair?

Answer: Anissa Jones played Buffy alongside Johnnie Whitaker (Sigmund and the Sea Monsters) on the series, which ran on CBS for five years beginning in September 1966. The show focused on swinging bachelor Bill Davis (Hardcastle & McCormick's Brian Keith) and his valet, Mr. French (Sebastian Cabot), two men whose lives took a change for the domestic when Buffy, her twin brother, Jody (Whitaker), and their older sister, Cissy (Kathy Garver), the children of Bill's late brother, moved in.

Tommy's trying to get some z's...

Tommy's trying to get some z's in the firehouse while Lou snores and the pipes clank. Me, I'll take the clanking. I got used to that in old, steam-heated New York City apartments. Snoring you never get used to. "I gotta really figure out what it is I want to do and how to do it before I go about doing it, y'know?" he says. Well, yeah — but why start now? And thus the problems roll on. Jesus mocks Tommy as the pill stash runs low, and Teddy's security program to keep Janet from the kids is about as safe as the cargo coming into our ports these days. But then Tommy actually comes up with a smart — albeit completely immoral, but no surprise there — plan to use a lady of the evening to get Lou back in with Sandra. "This is why God invented whores," he says. And here I'd been wondering all this time. Looks like Sheila's got a plan of her own, too, playing the lesbian card.
