Samantha the Witch - The beautiful blonde witch
(Elizabeth Montgomery) married to Darrin Stephens (Dick York/Dick Sargent), an
advertising executive who lived in the Connecticut suburbs at 1164 Morning Glory
Circle on the sitcom BEWITCHED/ABC/1964-72.
To placate her mortal husband, Samantha ("Sam") promised not to use her
witchcraft powers (including time traveling, seeing the future and reading
minds) but she was often unsuccessful in this endeavor.
When something went wrong Samantha said "Oh, my stars! or "Witchcraft got you
into this mess: I see no reason why witchcraft shouldn't get you out of it."
Throughout the series, a number of witches and warlocks popped in and out
Agnes Moorehead as Sam's mother, Endora
Maurice Evans as Sam's father (introduced on episode No. 10 "Just One Happy
Bernard Fox as the family witch doctor, Dr. Bombay
Elizabeth Montgomery as Serena, Sam's mischievous twin sister (introduced on
episode No. 54 "And Then There Were Three")
Erin and Diana Murphy as Tabitha and David and Greg Lawrence as Adam, the
Stephens' children both of whom possessed supernatural magical powers
Marion Lorne as the forgetful Aunt Clara
Alice Ghostley as scatterbrained Esmerelda
Paul Lynde as the prankster warlock Uncle Arthur.
Samantha's mother once described the lot of a witch on episode No. 2 "Be It Ever
So Mortgaged" saying "We are quicksilver, a fleeting shadow, a distant sound.
Our home has no boundaries beyond which we cannot pass-we live in music-in a
flash of color. We live on the wind and in the sparkle of a star." See also

TRIVIA NOTE: Nicole Kidman and Will Farrell
costarred as Samantha and Darrin Stephens in the movie remake of Bewitched
released in 2005.
