With the twinkle of her nose, actress Elizabeth Montgomery cast a spell over viewers and helped to create the longest running supernatural themed television series of the 1960s and 1970s.  Montgomery played the role of housewife and witch Samantha Stephens.  Her husband, a mortal, was played by Dick York and later by Dick Sargent.  Over the course of its eight season run, the Bewitched TV show centered many of its storylines on Samantha’s family’s disapproval and subsequent interference with her marriage to a mortal.  If you find Samantha and Darrin Stephens to be a charming couple despite their supernatural differences, then this Bewitched t-shirt is a fitting choice.  It features a cartoon version of Samantha as seen in the TV show’s opening credits.

Like many viewers who fell in love with the show, I discovered Bewitched through reruns that aired throughout the 1980s.  A kid at the time, the antics of Samantha’s magical mother Endora (Agnes Moorehead), her mischevious cousin Serena (also portrayed by Elizabeth Montgomery), her bumbling Aunt Clara (Marion Lorne) and her practical-joke-inclined Uncle Arthur (Paul Lynde) kept me wrapped up in each corresponding storyline.  To this day when someone mentions the show, I can still hear the music that plays during the opening credits, as a cartoon version of Samantha flies across the screen on her broom amidst the twinkling stars and glowing moon.  This tee captures that magical TV moment, allowing fans to literally become wrapped up in the show all over again.

Perfect for Halloween or any time of the year, this Bewitched shirt is ideal for fans both young and old.  A precursor to supernatural TV show’s like Charmed and Wizards of Waverly Place, Bewitched has become a fixture in pop culture and television history, often being referenced to on other sitcoms, including The Nanny, My Favorite Martian, Roseanne and The Simpsons.  In 2005, it inspired a feature film starring Nicole Kidman and Will Ferrell, in which Ferrell portrays an actor who is offered the role of Darrin in a remake of the Bewitched TV series.   To his surprise, he soon discovers that Kidman, who plays the actress cast as Samantha, is really a witch.  Fans failed to embrace the film’s plot and its characters, and the movie became a box office disappointment.

Like the actress immortalized in cartoon form on the front of this Bewitched t-shirt, it quickly became clear that this one of a kind TV show would be extremely difficult to replicate, at least in terms of its success.  In the summer of 2011, it was announced that a Bewitched remake was in the works.  This tee let’s everyone know that you’ll always be under the spell of the original, which is easily one of the best television sitcoms of all time.
