Synopsis

Despite some awkward, uncomfortable and downright embarrassing moments during Season One, Season Two of Family Affair finds the Davis household in a relative state of peace and contentent, with bachelor consulting engineer Bill Davis (Brian Keith) having thoroughly acclimated himself to his duties as surrogate parent to his orphaned nephew and nieces. For their part, 7-year-old twins Buffy (Anissa Jones) and Jody (Johnnie Whitaker) and 16-year-old Cissy (Kathy Garver) are more secure than before with the stability of their home life, fairly certain that their beloved Uncle Bill isn't about to bundle them off to another relative on the slightest pretext. Even Bill's imperious butler Mr. French (Sebastian Cabot) has learned that being a "male nanny" isn't such a horrendous fate. The season opens with the celebrated "facts of life" episode, in which the twins try to wade through an ocean of contradictory information about the human reproduction process. Later on, little Jody suffers his first true "love pangs", while sister Buffy tends to prefer the company of her doll Mrs. Beasley and older sibling Cissy is off on her own 1960s-teen orbit. Guest stars this season include Ann Sothern and Anna Lee as two of Mr. French's former flames (still waters run VERY deep!); former child stars Jackie Coogan and Marcia Mae Jones as a freewheeling blue-collar couple; Joan Blondell as a flamboyant, Ethel Merman-esque Broadway star; Martha Hyer as a glamorous movie queen who may very well forsake her career to marry Bill (or maybe not!); and an odd Brady Bunch-like exercise, wherein Bill gets serious about an attractive widow (Colleen Gray) with three children of her own. Also, Gregg Fedderson, the son of series producer Don Fedderson and soon to join the cast in the semi-regular role of Cissy's boyfriend Gregg Bartlett, begins showing up this season in other roles. The 1967-68 TV season was a very good one for CBS, with four of the network's series heading the "top ten" list--and Number Four just happened to be Family Affair, despite the formidable opposition of ABC's Peyton Place. ~ Hal Erickson
