Buffy famously doll loved her doll, "Mrs. Beasley," which was used as a promotional gimmick for the show and sold by Mattel. Other toys and items that were marketed include paper dolls, lunch boxes, coloring books, clothing, and even a cookbook with Buffy’s picture on the cover. By the time Family Affairwas canceled, Anissa was 13 years old, and she was glad to not have to be seen holding that doll any longer. In addition to Family Affair, Anissa Jones did the usual celebrity guest appearances on talk and variety shows, including Rowan and Martin’s Laugh-in, The Mike Douglas Show, and The Dick Cavett Show, which was her last appearance on television, in 1971.
Anissa Jones' one movie role was as Carol Bix in the Elvis Presley movie The Trouble with Girls, performing the song "Doodle Doo Doo." There were several other children in the film, including another very famous child actress, Susan Olson -- better known as Cindy Brady from the The Brady Bunch.
Anissa Jones' life started out normal enough; her father held a graduate degree in engineering and was on the faculty at Purdue University, where her mother was studying zoology. Not long after she was born, the family moved to California, where her father got a job in aerospace engineering. Life after Family Affair proved challenging for Anissa. She had hoped to work in films, but could not land the type of role she was hoping for. She auditioned for the lead role in The Exorcist (1973), but was turned down (in favor of Linda Blair) because people still thought of her as Buffy. Brian Keith offered her a part on The Brian Keith Show, which aired from 1972 to 1974, but by that time, she had lost the desire to work in television. She was also offered a chance to audition for a part in Taxi Driver, but turned that down as well. Anissa felt she was typecast, that everyone thought of her as being like Buffy, which made it hard for her to get a different type of role.
Just a year before she started on Family Affair, her parents had gone through a terrible divorce with a long and bitter custody battle for her and her little brother. Sadly, her father died shortly after he was awarded custody in 1973. Once her father passed away, she went to live with a friend while her brother went to live with their mother. She began to skip school and ended up being arrested, as her mother reported her as a runaway. Later, after months of being in juvenile hall, she was allowed to go live with her mother. She began taking drugs and shoplifting and, by 1975, she had dropped out of high school.
In March of 1976, on her eighteenth birthday, Anissa finally gained control of her earnings from Family Affair, a sum of $180,000 and an unspecified amount of money from U.S. savings bonds that had been held for her in a trust fund. She and her brother rented an apartment together not far from their mother. Only five months later, in August of 1976, she attended a party with a new boyfriend on the beach. Later, she was found dead in one of the bedrooms at her 14-year-old friend’s house. Her death was ruled an accidental drug overdose; cocaine, PCP, Seconal and Quaaludes were found in her system. There was also a vial of a blue liquid found by her body that was never identified. Anissa Jones's death at the age of 18 was a tragic but not entirely surprising end to a life that had been in decline for a few years. Her body was cremated, with her ashes being spread over the Pacific Ocean. Of the $180,000 that she had just received, she had $63,000 left and over $100,000 left in savings b...
Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother for instance was called Buffy by her family. Saying all that, though, Im pretty certain that Buffy Anne Summers is her full name in the series, and is how it would be on her birth certificate if she was a real person. Its not that uncommon for peoples real full name to be a shortened/diminutive form of another.
