Sabrina Spellman (Melissa Joan Hart), a perfectly normal sixteen-year-old, is informed by her aunts, Hilda (Caroline Rhea) and Zelda (Beth Broderick), that she (and they, and her whole family on her father's side) are witches. She lives with them in Massachusetts while preparing to receive her witch's license. Along the way, she gets into many scrapes while figuring out how certain spells work. She also has to keep the secret from her boyfriend, Harvey (Nate Richert), friends Jenny (Michelle Beaudoin), and later Valerie (Lindsay Sloane), stuck-up nemesis Libby (Jenna Leigh Green), and the ever-suspicious Principal Willard Kraft (Martin Mull).
Melissa Joan Hart didn't have to audition for the role of Sabrina Spellman and there were no other actresses considered, as her mother Paula was a producer of the show and owned the rights to Archie Comics adaptations. See more »
Throughout out the series, it's clear that many of the actors/actresses portraying teenagers are actually in their 20s+. This is done as to not interfere with the schooling of real teenagers and to give the general viewing audience who are teenagers (or young people) themselves someone they can look up to. See more »
In the first three seasons of "Sabrina, the Teenage Witch", Sabrina appears in differing clothing, and quotes a quick one-liner based on the subject of her clothing. See more »
There are also two endings to the pilot episode. The first one Salem tells Sabrina how to use magic to get a glass of milk and on the second one Salem tries to tell the audience that they are under his control, but leaves when he hears a can opener. "Please be tuna." "Please be tuna." See more »
Good high school teen show, but not so good college show
When Sabrina Spellman (Melissa Joan Hart) turns 16, she is told by her aunts Hilda (Caroline Rhea) and Zelda (Beth Broderick) that she is a witch.
It's a fun teen series. The first year, I especially like her best friend Jenny (Michelle Beaudoin) and Mr Pool (Paul Feig). I don't know why they dropped Paul Feig, but it all worked out. He along with Judd Apatow created 'Freaks and Geeks'.
At least they got Lindsay Sloane and the wonderful Martin Mull. It's a fine high school series. But then they send her to college and it just doesn't work as well. Heck eventually she's not even a teenager anymore.
