Gladys Kravitz

Abner Kravitz

Gladys Kravitz

Gladys, of course, went rushing back home to her befuddled husband, Abner who thought that his wife was just plain nuts. Fortunately, for Sam, she always found a way to camouflage her magical mistakes, thus leaving Gladys looking like a liar or at the very least, someone who needed to go home and get some rest.

A sample of spells cast for good or mischief in the Stephen's household included:

  • "Spiders that crawl, bats that fly, silence my tongue if I'm telling a
    lie." (to ensure Sam was speaking the truth)
  • "Marrow of tooth of saber-toothed tiger, eye of newt, toe of frog, wool of bat and dietetic cola." (Dr. Bombay's prescribes this potion to help cure metaphysical molecular disturbance (dream inversion) that causes Sam to see her husband's boss as her own husband).
  • "Boil and bubble, toil and trouble, Mother, get here on the double. (Summoning Endora in a hurry)
  • Yagazuzi, yagazuzi, yagazuzi, zim [sound of cowbell, and a duck
    call]; Zoomazoozi, zoomazoozi, zoomazoozi, bim [cowbell, duck
    call repeated]; Zuzzi, hi! Zuma Huga Pits." (Uncle Arthur convinced Darrin this spell would protect him from the wrath of Endora...NOT!)
  • "Special baby, full of grace...so tiny and so new; whatever mortal
    sees your face...will fall in love with you." (Maurice's spell made
    everyone who saw his granddaughter, Tabitha love her. It caused
    mayhem) 

Sam's husband, Darrin was often the target of many of the spells cast by Endora. Over time, he was turned into a chimp, a mule, a werewolf, a goose, a pony, a parrot, a goat, a gorilla, a toad, a statue, a crow, a dog, an invisible man, and a little boy. If it wasn't for his eternal love for Samantha, Darrin would surely have left her. When Sam executed a spell, she quickly twitched her nose.

Sam, who's he? Oh, My Stars! Sam, who's he?

Years later, as the Stephens' children matured, both Tabitha and Adam left their hometown of Westport, Connecticut and traveled to California. There, Tabitha and Adam found employment at TV Station KLXA. Tabitha got hired as the television production assistant for The Paul Thurston Show. When necessary, both Tabitha and Adam used their witchcraft to solve problems. Keeping an eye on the two siblings was their meddlesome but well-meaning Aunt Minerva.

Meanwhile, back in Connecticut, Samantha still tried to keep her promise to avoid using witchcraft while Darrin continued to work for McMann and Tate. Of course, Endora, Maurice and the rest of the Samantha's relatives were still there to tease, or torture Darrin when they felt slighted by his human antics. Luckily, Sam, who was once crowned The Queen of the Witches, was still there to rescue him when they did.


 

Bewitched Theme Song Lyrics
Musical theme song composed by Howard Greenfield
Lyrics written by Jack Keller (but never used for show)

Bewitched, bewitched,
You've got me in your spell.
Bewitched, bewitched,
You know your craft so well.
Before I knew what you were doing,
I looked in your eyes.
That brand of woo that you've been brewin'
Took me by surprise.
You witch, you witch!
One thing that's for sure,
That stuff you pitch,
Just hasn't got a cure.
My heart was under lock and key,
But somehow it got unhitched.
I never thought my heart could be had.
But now I'm caught and I'm kind of glad
To be bewitched. Bewitched.
