Another successful fantasy sitcom series graced American television from September 17, 1964, to March 25, 1972, on ABC. It ran for eight seasons, telling the story of a witch marrying a mortal man. She swears to lead the typical life of a suburban homemaker. Sol Saks created Bewitched with Harry Ackerman as its executive director. Samantha Stephens was played by Elizabeth Montgomery and Darrin Stephens was played by Dick York from 1964 to 1969 (Later replaced by Dick Sargent). The sitcom became so popular that it made the number two spot in America’s top rating show list. It maintained its position in the top ten during the first three seasons. Until the present time, Bewitched is still being showed globally through recorded media and syndication.
The story is founded on the fact that Samantha’s family does not approve of mixed marriages, even if Samantha completely agrees to live a normal, earthly life of a modern suburban housewife. Samantha’s family often meddles with the life of the couple, so Darrin is on the receiving end of spells. As a result, the situation causes chaos with the other mortals in the couple’s environment—neighbors, Darrin’s boss, parents, and clients. The world of immortal witches and warlocks are merged with the world of the clueless humans here. Because of this, Samantha and her family are careful not to show their powers to other humans. But their efforts are not successful all the time.
