Darrin and Samantha Stephens are a young, bi-species married couple: he's a mortal human being, she's a witch, something which she does not divulge to him until after their wedding. Darrin just wants them to live a simple, mortal life, to which Samantha agrees, meaning no witchcraft and no telling any of their mortal friends and relatives of her being a witch. However, that no witchcraft vow is difficult to maintain if only because of Samantha wanting or needing to use it to get out of one scrape or another, and her relatives, especially her mother Endora, the most constant thorn in Darrin's side, against the marriage and the idea of denying Samantha's heritage as a witch. Mortals in their lives also add to their complicated lives: Darrin's friend and spendthrift boss, Larry Tate of McMann and Tate Advertising, who always wants Darrin to do all the work while the company gets all the glory and money; their nosy neighbors, the Kravitzes, Glady Kravitz who always arrives at the most ...Written by
Alice Ghostley originally did not appear as Esmeralda but as maid Naomi who caused havoc at the Stephens'. In the same episode ("Maid To Order"), she is asked to help with a client dinner at the Tate's home because their own maid was ill that night. The name of the Tate's usual maid was Esmeralda!

The Astroturf lawn in the rear of the Stephen's home is also the green "carpet" shown inside the home. This is most apparent when there are shots of characters exiting or entering the home through the rear sliding glass door. See more »
When Dick York left, most of the magic went with him.
A sweet premise, About a sweet witch(Elizabeth Montgomery) who marries a mortal(Dick York-Dick Sargent)much of the dismay of her witching mother(Agness Morehead). I love watching this show in reruns. It's a fun magic show. It also had meomerable characters like Uncle Arthur(The very funny Paul Lynde) Dr. Bombay(played very we'll by Bernard Fox). But when Dick York had to leave the show do to a serious back injury, and was replaced by Dick Sargent. It was not has funny anymore. The show's comic appeal was lost. Dick York was a comic genius. He had great comic timing. His comic reactions made the show. Besides Samantha's magic. I do not totally dislike Dick Sargent, I mean he was'nt that bad, he just was'nt has funny has Dick York. The only funny episode with Dick Sargent, is the Catch Phrase episode. But the show's appeal was'nt slowly falling only due to Dick York's departure. The show was wearing itself out. Maybe it should have quit while it was ahead.
