Bewitched (television series)

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

A successful television comedy series inspired by the movie I Married a Witch, it ran from 1964 to 1972, and starred Elizabeth Montgomery as Samantha, a young housewife who is a Witch trying to live a normal life. Unfortunately every time she is tempted to use magic to help herself or her husband, things go awry. The role of her husband, Darrin, was played first by Dick York and then by Dick Sargent. Agnes Moorehead played Samantha's witchy mother, Endora, who kept trying to lead her daughter back to the path of spells and magic.
