Darrin (Dick York/Dick Sargent) and Samantha Stephens (Elizabeth Montgomery) 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 (Agnes Moorehead), 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 (David White) of McMann and Tate Advertising, who always wants Darrin to do all the work while the company gets all the glory and money; their...Written by
In 2005, Rob Fulton became the first contestant on the Australian version of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire (1998) to win the million dollars, and the answer to the million dollar question was "Bewitched". The question he faced was "Which of these popular 60s TV shows premiered first" a) Bewitched, b) Get Smart, c) Hogan's Heroes, d) I Dream of Jeannie. Fulton thought about each show closely, the introduction, clothes worn, cars driven, et cetera and came to the conclusion that this show looked more like the 1950s or possibly early 1960s, "so I would say Bewitched", he said. Host Eddie Maguire then asked are you prepared to have a go to win the million dollars, Fulton said "Ed....why not". Moments later, he said I can't believe I'm saying this lock in Bewitched". After it was announced he had won a million dollars, Maguire confirmed that Get Smart and I Dream of Jeannie had premiered on September 18, 1965, while Hogan's Heroes was a day prior on the seventeenth, but it was one year earlier on September 17, 1964, when this show made its world premiere.

In early episodes, the daughter is referred to in the credits as "Tabatha". In later episodes, however, the spelling of her name is changed to "Tabitha". See more »
Bewitched was a great tv series. In my opinion, the best episodes were the black and white episodes with Dick York, the best Darrin. Elizabeth Montgomery did a great job on the series and so did Agnes Moorehead who played Samantha's mother, Endora. A series that will have a very long life in reruns.
