Default Family Affair - Season Four DVD Review

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 car 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). Despite their reservations, Davis and French grow attached to the children. Through humorous trial and error, coupled with big doses of love and patience, the five become a real family.

Family Affair Season 4 contains 26 episodes on 5 discs and includes never-before-seen bonus features.

One question. I am almost sure that when I first watched the show, an announcers voice would say 'Family Affair, starring Brian Keith and Sebastion Cabot.' Is there some legal reason this voice was cut out? In any event, it's great that the shows are intact.

Maybe that was originally only done for certain seasons...? For example, some of the later seasons of My Three Sons (circa 1970) had an announcer for the opening title ("Starring Fred MacMurray") while most other seasons didn't. Production company decision at the time, as both series were done by Don Fedderson?

Back in the early '90s I acquired some VHS tapes with prints of FA transferred from old film. They have the announcer on the opening credits and the theme music is slightly different (it is more staccato) than the one used on the DVD's and in syndication.

I know I wasn't nuts, at least not on this one. Thanks.
