Mr. French ("Family Affair")

"I really wouldn't lump (him) in with nannies (any more than) Alice from ' The Brady Bunch.' They were butlers and housekeepers and then the children came into the scene.

Same goes for Uncle Charley on "My Three Sons," she says, adding, "But it kind of sets the tone that a male can fill those roles."
