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).
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 »
[All of Salem's mined magic is used on Sabrina]
Well, at least I'm young. No, that's Sabrina. Well, at least I have my own magic. No, wait, that's Sabrina. At least I'm a biped, no, no, wait, THAT'S SABRINA!

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 »
I watched the show when it first came out back when I was a teen. I watched the movie, "Sabrina the teenage witch" first, with Ryan Reynolds. I was excited to see the tv show as well. No one could play the character of Sabrina better than Melissa Joan Hart. It's as if the role was made specifically for her. It's funny but in a corny kind of way. I don't know why people complain about the college years seasons. You can't expect Sabrina to stay in High school for 6 years. The show needed a change. I liked the new character of Roxy, but the other two roommates not so much. The one thing I did not care for was the cat Salem. He was almost annoying. I could have lived without seeing him. He wasn't even funny, and it was a little silly. I loved the aunts Zelda and Hilda, but I think they remained on the show too long, as they should have went off the show as soon as Sabrina went to college. All in all, its a great show and a part of my teen years that I will always cherish.
