* In an episode of ''Series/{{Bewitched}}'', the characters are transported back in time to old Salem. Someone ends up tied to a stake with kindling piled around their feet before the episode is out. Ironically, it was Darrin who ended up
accused of witchcraft for having used a match. ''Bewitched'' spent several episodes in Salem, either 4 or 8. It was a sizable chunk of that season.
