Salem - Talking black
American Short Hair Breed cat (voice of Nick Bakay) that lived
with Sabrina, a pretty blond teenage witch (Melissa Joan Hart) on
the fantasy comedy SABRINA, THE TEENAGE WITCH/ABC/1996-2003.
was once a human named Salem Saberhagen who was turned into a cat
(for a period of 100 years) by the Witches Council as punishment
for trying to "rule the world." Now the only excitement in his
life is listening for the sound of the can opener. When he gets
really bored he puts a pencil in his mouth and types on the
family's laptop computer to access Internet chat rooms (under the
guise of a woman).
Salem the Cat appeared regularly in the Sabrina
comic book as a striped tabby cat from 1971-83 (where his thoughts
floated in traditional comic balloons). The Salem the cat
character also appeared in the 1999-2001 cartoon series spin-off
SABRINA: THE ANIMATED SERIES (voice still supplied by Nick Bakay).
