 Here, one of the episodes, pretty funny...Well I like old shows...


To commemorates the 60's era, on 2005, a six foot tall statue was placed on Salem, Massachusetts - USA, about 2 hours from where I live. Not only the city is all about witches, but Salem was a scenario for a set of episodes of "Bewitched", after a fire on the Hollywood set.


Mattel showed her appreciation for the good TV American television on 2010 when released  the "Bewitched" Barbie Doll.
The doll wear the same outfit Samantha shows on the opening of the show. She also  brings a hat and a broom with her.




Well, hope you all have a great week!!

  3. They are both gorgeous and captures the spirit of the series, but I think none of them resemble the original actress, on the other hand...
