Buffy and Mrs. Beasley

Family Affair is an American sitcom that aired on CBS from September 12, 1966 to March 4, 1971. Due to the popularity of the series with girls,
Buffy's doll, "Mrs. Beasley" (which she often carried with her), was marketed as a Mattel talking toy in the United States.
Mattel went on to produce two additional dolls, as well, patterned after Buffy: the "Tutti"-sized Buffy
and larger "Small Talk Buffy" (talking doll), both of which featured accompanying miniature Mrs. Beasley dolls.
