The Sprightly, Sparkly Theme from 'Family Affair'

In the 1970s when I was sometimes home sick from school my mom would bring the small portable (B&W) TV set to my bedroom so I can have something to watch in bed. It was all reruns, from Batman to Bewitched to Family Affair. I enjoyed Family Affair because I was about the same age as the twin kids, but I didn't take into account that the shows were older and that the actors who played the kids were practically adults by then.

It was so glamorous and enchanting. I loved the cursive written credits, too.

The opening was the best part of the show.

In retrospect, it was a weird opening sequence for a somber-ish low-key family comedy. Certainly had nothing to do with the show itself.

I loved it! It was mesmerizing, thank you for starting this thread. I liked every character, but fantasized about having Mr. French, or an adult like that in my life. But I ADORED the dad....I used to practice saying Uncle Bill, Uncle Bill!! Like the kids. I thought all grown men were like that, loved his gravelly voice, blond hair, always dressed so nicely and I just KNEW he smelled divine. And his shoulders in those suits, I can’t even, I want to snuggle into his big fatherly chest right now. If only...

I was a baby when its original run finished so I didn't see it until it started airing every day after school at 4:30 when i was six or seven, but unfortunately it took the time spot of my favorite show -- Petticoat Junction. I vividly remember being furious that PJ wasn't on anymore and throwing a fit. I was mostly a well-behaved kid, but this just destroyed my world. My mom tried to tell me that I'd love Family Affair -- it had been a favorite of hers -- but I refused to watch and stomped down the hall of our trailer to my room.
Luckily right around the same time, I discovered three women to take the place of the Bradley sisters on Wednesday nights, and they were even more glamorous. Goodbye Betty Jo, Bobbie Jo and Billie Jo, and hello Sabrina, Jill and Kelly!
I did end up watching some episodes of Family Affair later and found it dull.

FA was a favorite for a couple of years when my sister and I were kids; Johnny Whitaker is my age. I don't remember the bus or even that it was Spain, but the only thing I remember about the show is when they were lost in a foreign country; I think they slept in a barn one night? I just recall that it was very scary and worrying. Oh, I also remember what must have been a very early one where Buffy and Jody got the keys to Uncle Bill's car and went to the parking garage, and one of them was going to work the pedals and the other the steering wheel.
I think as the kids got older we lost interest.

Some of those story lines were brutal for a young kid. I didn't know what the hell was happening. Jan (Eve) was dying.? I think in Spain they may have slept in a church too.

This show was geared more for adults. In an era when kids were growing into rebellious hippies, it was a comfort for adults to see a perfect little family with cute and obedient children.

Kathy Garver said, that during the breaks from shooting "Family Affair" the network would always want the actors to do publicity tours, for which they received gifts and were paid.
And none of the three children wanted to do it, but Sebastian Cabot would take them aside, and explain they were very lucky to get on a hit TV series and they had to make the money while they could, because they probably would never get that lucky again.
Brian Keith had the same deal as Fred MacMurray whereas he would film all his scenes for a season at once. Then he'd go off to do other projects, and he'd come back for a few weeks and film any needed retakes or extras, in all he would do about 8 to 10 weeks per year.
Kathy said, since she and Sebastian Cabot were the only other adults (she was over 18 when it started), they would be on the set the longest as the other two children were limited by law. She said it was funny as she would often have to read lines to a teamster in a full beard and smoking, reading one of the children's lines, and then later they'd do a cutaway and insert either "Buffy" or Jodie in.

Such tragedy with the cast. Poor Buffy ODed at 18. A stroke took out Mr. French at 59.

Of course the kids were anxious - they had lost their parents and had been sent to NYC to live with their closeted gay uncle and his British bear lover. Poor Buffy was strung out on black beauties and Jody was raised Mormon (he later went on to be a heroin addict AND Dano Plato’s manager) The doorknob alone was disorientating.
I blame Cissy.

Cissy was seen less in the final season as she moved into the dorms at college and had that short, curly hairstyle. She was obviously not a virgin any longer.

Since their shows came from the same production company, I assume Cissy and Robbie Douglas were at the same college, and Cissy lost her virginity at Robbie's frat house gangbang.

They were a damn hot couple.

Did anyone see the Ghost Story marathon on Decades last weekend? The series was introduced by Sebastian Cabot as Winston Essex in a set that looked like it was from The Prisoner. It played like a knock off of Night Gallery.

Jody was better with that sea monster.

The Diodes had their greatest success in their ode to Buffy and her OD.

Brian Keith had terminal lung cancer which was what led to his suicide. Shotgun in the mouth as I recall. How terribly sad.

Wasn't Sebastian Cabot replaced for a time by his character's brother?
|by Music by DeVOL||reply 142||10/18/2018|
John Williams who played a lot of butlers and Scotland Yard detectives briefly replaced Cabot.
Doesn't MSNBC cutie Phil Rucker kind of remind you of Mr. French?

Brian Keith had an extensive gun collection. He may have been cleaning one of his guns when it went off. My aunt was Brian's girlfriend in high school. I remember seeing the pictures when I was a kid. He was a very nice man and loved children.

Ask her about his dick and report back to us.

I agree that it was a strange choice for the show, which was low-key and family focused. It would've been a great opening for a show featuring a glamorous woman like Zsa Zsa Gabor, Lucille Ball, or some such.

Mr. French does Bob Dylan....
