He was the only six-year-old who screen-tested for the role of Jody Davis in Family Affair (1966), which originally was supposed to be for a ten-year-old boy, but when the producers saw the chemistry between he and Anissa Jones (Buffy), they promptly rewrote the parts for six-year-old twins.

Johnny Whitaker in The World of Sid & Marty Krofft at the Hollywood Bowl (1973)

Began his acting career at the age of three. He was discovered while singing in his church's children's program, where he broke up the entire congregation after he'd forgotten the words to the song and started to improvise with his own. He went on to do his first on-air performance in a commercial for OK Used Cars.

His first film, The Russians Are Coming! The Russians Are Coming! (1966) co-starred Brian Keith. He and Keith got along so well that Keith was instrumental in setting him up for an interview with the producers of Family Affair (1966), in which he was eventually cast as Keith's nephew.

Sparky Marcus and Johnny Whitaker in Sigmund and the Sea Monsters (1973)

Finding it harder to transition into young adult roles and following the tragic death of his 18-year-old Family Affair (1966) co-star Anissa Jones, he took what was supposed to be an extended sabbatical from acting and a return to "normalcy" by attending public schools again. He instead went into missionary work.
