*** Incidentally, Mills also starred in "Nanny & the Professor," a less memorable fantastic sitcom about a nanny with ESP. It lasted three seasons around the same era as "Bewitched."

* Really700YearsOld: Exactly how old Samantha (and her relatives) are is left vague, but she is implied to be centuries old
* RecastAsARegular: Creator/PaulLynde appeared in an early episode in a one-shot role that wasn't Uncle Arthur, however, he and Elizabeth Montgomery so loved working together, and the rest of the cast and crew got such a kick out of Paul Lynde and his sense of humor, that the character of Uncle Arthur was created pretty much to bring him back onto the show on a semi-regular basis..

Added DiffLines:

** It's also revealed that the Witches' Council (the governing body of the magic world) can do this as the ultimate punishment. In one episode, they try to strong-arm Samantha into disavowing her marriage to Darrin; she refuses, and they remove her powers while they debate the case. Uncle Arthur and Serena support Sam and have the same problem.
** This also seems to happen gradually to magic users over time, if Aunt Clara is any indication--she's become forgetful, and her powers are fading as well (although it's never made clear if her abilities are actually weakening, or if she simply can't remember how to use them properly).

* FrothyMugsOfWater: Massively, massively averted. Among the most-remembered secondary aspects of the series is that almost every dinner party is accompanied by alcohol (usually martinis). And given Darrin's frustrations, it's no wonder [[INeedAFreakingDrink he hits the bottle often.]]

** In "If the Shoe Pinches," Endora has a leprechaun give Darrin a pair of shoes that make him lazy. The leprechaun and Endora at one point get into an argument, in which Endora says, "[[BlatantLies I never interfere in my daughter's marital life.]]" The leprechaun doesn't bit it, though, and does an apparent LastSecondWordSwap:

* ObsessivelyNormal: Darren insists that Samantha hide her magic powers, not because of any moral objections to witchcraft or any fear of her being persecuted, but solely because he is obsessed with being "normal".

* StandardizedSitcomHousing: ''Bewitched'' is one of the most famous aversions. The front door was stage right with a foyer, the stairs descended into the middle of the main room, dividing the living room from the dining room, and the kitchen was a separate room (with shutters dividing the kitchen from the dining room). A hallway leading out of the left hand side of the foyer led to Darren's study/home office, a side door to the house and a second door into the kitchen. The living room was off the right hand side of foyer and had large glass doors along the back wall that opened onto a patio. There was also a half-bath downstairs.

Elizabeth Montgomery stars as Samantha, the wife of ad executive Darrin Stephens. She's not the average {{housewife}}. In fact, she's a witch, with the power to warp reality as she sees fit. Darrin encouraged her to suppress her powers and try to live a normal life, but Samantha couldn't help using her powers when she or Darrin were in a jam. With a twitch of the nose, she would make something magical happen and throw Darrin and the rest of the mortal world into a tizzy.
