Editorial Reviews

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 2, Uncle Bill and Mr. French tell the twins tall tales about where babies come from, until Cissy steps in as the voice of reason; a famous actress wants to settle down with Uncle Bill; and Jody’s new imaginary friend causes him a great deal of trouble. Guest stars include Anna Lee, Jackie Coogan and Ann Sothern. Family Affair Season 2 contains 30 episodes on 5 discs and includes never-before-seen bonus features

It is a great family show to watch with your children.
Robin G. Barks
MPI has produced a box set that has great sound and picture quality, as well as a nice "extra" featuring Kathy Garver.
Stephanie Fitzgerald
I just finished watching Season 1 and I'm glad Season 2 is being released so quickly.

Just finished a 30 episode Season 1 marathon! What a great show. Not the funniest..but very touching. It reminded me of my younger days (yes I was alive when it first aired...I am around the twins age). Brian Keith does an excellent job of being tough but loving towards the kids. Sebastian Cabot is a joy to watch. Sorry, but I didn't care for John Williams (Sebastian missed several episodes in season 1 due to illness). Kathy Garver is sweet as Cissy. I would have like to see more of her...I realize the twins were the major focus. Anissa and Johnny were adorable. Season 2 will bring more great episodes..notably when the twins want to know where babies come from. Season 3 is my favorite...hope MPI will release early next year. For now..anyone thinking about this purchase...I can only say : It is great family fun !

In its second season, "Family Affair" is to be commended for not foregoing the intricate histories and personality traits of its central characters; for instance, the kids go on vacation with Uncle Bill and Mr. French to their hometown in Indiana, which brings back poignant and sometimes painful memories of their deceased parents; and Mr. French is still trying to adjust his life around the kids, but when they are forced to take a trip with him out West, he happily restructures his schedule to accomodate them. Unlike other sitcoms, "Family Affair" is seamless in its exploration of certain themes, such as the fear of separation, emotional ground which gives the wonderful cast plenty to get worked up about. One particular episode on Season 2 ("First Love") contains one of Anissa Jones' very best performances as Buffy, tenderly conveying a youngster's crush on a 6th-grader with all the requisite heartache (Uncle Bill's heart also gets broken in this epsiode, and uncle and niece share the kind of heart-to-heart chat which made this show unbeatable for warm, family entertainment). Thanks to the website "Apartment 27A" for the episode-list. Hopefully we can stay tuned for Season 3, which includes just as many classic shows of laughter, humor and love.

I received my box set of Family Affair Season 2 and went directly to the
bonus material. I was shocked by the continued omission of Johnny
Whitaker from the extras!

The few minutes spent featuring merchandise generated by the show could
have been expanded with additional material beyond the scope of the
piece. Johnny Whitaker was not asked to participate and if he had been
asked, his personal collection would have made a vast and welcome
addition to the few items that were shown. As archivist of the Whitaker
archives, I can assure you that there are far more products than those
shown.

The fans are the people who have supported the series and are the one
who purchase the series as it comes out on DVD, and they are not being
offered the perspective of all of the surviving cast members. Although
Johnny was a child when the show was being filmed, he has many wonderful
stories to share. Why has he not been included? It appears that the
people being hurt by his omission are the very people who are buying
this product...THE FANS!

[...]

This is a wonderful product otherwise. The episodes are crisp and clear
and the voice tracks are clean. Packaging is one box, which I find to
be an advantage with no small DVD boxes to get misplaced. Everything is
in one place.

Season 3 is already slated to come out in March 2007, so there probably
isn't time to include Johnny Whitaker in that season's bonus tracks. If
MPI wants to really do justice to Family Affair by the fans, they should
not waste any time in contacting Johnny Whitaker to give his commentary
to the remaining seasons. If they decide against it, it will be a
travesty and the fans will be the ones who lose.

I Loved Buffy and Jody when I was little. The show was about real life. Coping with the death of parents and being split up is hard for Kids and the explained that so well. I bought seanson and and I have pre-ordered season 2. HAts off to the company for not editing their first seasons like other TV dvd shows did. This is a movie that you can share with your small children. Try it you will fall in Love with the real sitcoms. The sitcom without sex, violence and foul mouths.

Season 2 was when the series really hit its stride. Bill Davis (Brian Keith) and his British gentleman's gentleman Mr. French (Sebastian Cabot) care for Bill's nieces Cissy and Buffy, and also nephew Jody.

The series is a situation comedy with the emphasis on "situation". But there are also poignant moments which never seem forced. The interaction among the characters always rings true. And it shows that a family does not have to conform to the traditional norms of what a regular family should be. These characters bond beautifully.

There were some interesting guest appearances by Ann Sothern, Joan Blondell and Jackie Coogan which add to the fun. And the special features narrated by an adult Kathy Garver (Cissy) add insight and have a behind the scenes feel.

This season is well recommended along with the companion Season 1. And loking forward to three.
