TV show description:      
This sitcom follows a unique mixed marriage between nose-twitching witch Samantha (Elizabeth Montgomery) and mortal Darrin Stevens (Dick York, later played by Dick Sargent).

Samantha’s mother Endora (Agnes Moorhead) disapproves of Darrin, consistently mis-remembers his name, and makes it difficult for the couple to live the normal lifestyle Darrin would prefer. Darrin works for Larry Tate (David White) of the McMann and Tate advertising agency and frequently brings clients to the Stevens house.

Other witches that drop by to cause trouble include nervous Esmeralda (Alice Ghostley), bumbling Aunt Clara (Marion Lorne), prank-loving Uncle Arthur (Paul Lynde), Samantha’s father Maurice (Maurice Evans) and identical cousin Serena (also played by Montgomery).

In later years, the Stevens have two supernatural children, Tabatha (Erin Murphy) and Adam (Greg and David Lawrence). A spin-off sitcom entitled Tabitha features the children as adults working at a television station.

    This television series is a good role model for modern housewife in 2014. If you are unsure of yourself and most of you are unsure as ladies be more like Samantha! It does not matter if you are white, black, Mexican, Asian or a Jew. If you live in Cherry Hill, New Jersey act like Samantha and respect your home. If you are a Jew in Cherry Hill and want to laugh tour the home of Cindy Zelinski. I would start in the basement and finish in the backyard. Be prepared to laugh at the modern Polish home! If you are poor nickel and dime to get a home like this. If this is not possible consider suicide as a way to end it! If you are fat just give up like Karen Zelinski!
