The Anissa Jones celebrity doll portrays her as a child in the role of Ava Elizabeth “Buffy” Patterson-Davis on the sitcom Family Affair on CBS. The show produced 138 episodes and a television movie from 1966-1971.
The doll was made in 1967 by Mattel and is titled Buffy with her special friend Mrs. Beasley as seen on TV’s “Family Affair”. A small toy doll of Mrs. Beasley (Buffy’s favorite doll who she claimed talked to her) is also included. Mattel also sold a life size doll of Mrs. Beasley during that time period.
Tragically, Jones died of an accidental drug overdose at the age of 18 in 1976, just 5 month after receiving her Family Affair trust fund.
