Trivia

From January 1984 until January 1991, the DFS Program Exchange (a division of the Dancer Fitzgerald Sample advertising agency) syndicated "Bewitched," as well as such other classic Columbia Pictures Television shows as "I Dream of Jeannie" and "The Partridge Family." Many fans wondered why DFS omitted syndicating the first two black-and-white seasons of "Bewitched" (and the early black-and-white episodes of "I Dream of Jeannie"); DFS claimed this was "basically because studies show that the majority of viewers would rather watch color programming" (this was during the height of the colorization craze in the mid-1980s). This obviously perturbed said fans of "Bewitched," rightfully citing unbridled, out-and-out *censorship,* and eventually Columbia Pictures Entertainment got word of how DFS was treating the distribution of Columbia's best-known TV property. As the result of that outcry, DFS - which by this time officially changed its name to simply The Program Exchange after DFS was purchased by rival advertising agency Saatchi and Saatchi North America, Inc. - re-released the black-and-white episodes of "Bewitched" from September 1989 until January 1991, at which time Sony Pictures Entertainment - which owned Columbia Pictures for a little over a year - re-assumed syndication of "Bewitched," "I Dream of Jeannie," etc. Sony Pictures Television *still* syndicates *every single* episode of "Bewitched" - both black-and-white *and* color - to this day.

Crazy Credits

Whenever Samantha's cousin Serena appeared on the show, the credits for the episode listed the actress as "Pandora Spocks". This was Elizabeth Montgomery's idea as an inside joke. Elizabeth Montgomery played Serena. See more »

A Delightful Magical Journey to My Childhood
10 September 2005 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The young executive of an advertisement agency, Darrin Stephens (Dick York) marries a beautiful woman, Samantha Stephens (Elizabeth Montgomery). In their honeymoon, Sam discloses a secret to him: she is a witch with magic powers. He makes she promises him that she will live like a mortal, without using witchcraft and spells in their lives, but sometime she uses her magic to help Darrin and herself. Sam's mother, Endora (Agnes Moorehead) does not accept her mortal son-in-law, hates him and hardly can speak his name correctly. In the suburb of Morning Glory Circle, where they live, their snoopy next-door neighbor Gladys Kravitz (Alice Pearce) suspects of Samantha, but can never prove the weird situations she sees to her husband Abner Kravitz (George Tobias). Darrin works in the McMahon and Tate with Larry Tate (David White), who is married with Louise Tate. Samantha frequently receives her witches' aunts in her house, specially her sweet elder Aunt Clara.

With these simple elements, but in great stories, "Bewitched" is certainly one of the best feel-good shows of television ever. When I was a kid, I loved this series. Last month, Sony released a colorized four DVDs box with the complete first season (36 episodes) in Brazil. It is amazing how perfect the colors are. With the exception of Stephens' blue car that changes the tonality in accordance with the episode, the rest is amazingly perfect. There is the participation of the famous guest stars, such as Adam "Batman" West (episode 13), Billy "Lost in Space" Mumy (episode 15), June "Lost in Space" Lockhart (Episode 6) among others. We can see the back of Rachel Welch in the role of a stewardess in episode 8. Yesterday I saw the last episode, and I am anxiously waiting for the next season of this delightful magical journey to my childhood. My vote for the whole season is nine.

Title (Brazil): "A Feiticeira" (The Sorceress")
