French Traduire


A highly paid consulting engineer, Bill Davis' carefree existence as a swinging bachelor was just about perfect. Maintaining an elegant apartment off Fifth Avenue in Manhattan, he had his domestic needs cared for by a very English gentleman's gentleman, Mr. French. Into this life of independence came three young orphans, whose parents, Davis' relatives, had died in an accident.

In the episode that Buffy broke her leg, Anissa Jones had really broken her leg and the writers came up with the script for that episode in one day.

Cissy, Buffy and Jody were living in Terre Haute, Indiana, where Bill and his brother grew up, before moving in with Bill and French.

Very often Buffy was shown with her 'Mrs. Beasley' doll. That became the highlight of the show so much a line of replica Mrs. Beasley dolls was launched. It sold well and continued to sell even two years after the series' cancellation.

Debuted on CBS on 12 September 1966. Last telecast: 9 September 1971.

Aired in repeats on CBS Daytime from 7 September 1970 to 12 January 1973.

'Sebastian Cabot' was replaced during the first season by 'John Williams (III)'. It was explained that Giles French was summoned to England by the Queen, and his brother Niles filled in at the Davises Doorstep.
