Added DiffLines:

* InformedAttribute: PlayedForLaughs with one-shot character Eugene, played by Len Lesser. Eugene goes on and on about how much he loves to make people laugh, but despite many expectant silences doesn't do anything to back it up.

Added DiffLines:

* BalefulPolymorph: Happens ''all the time''. Salem is the most visible example, having been changed into a cat for one hundred years as punishment for attempting world conquest, and in one episode, an old member of Salem's gang who's had his sentence commuted visits, and he's still just getting the hang of being human again. This punishment seems fairly standard among witches, as other characters suffer or nearly suffer similar fates, or had in the past.

Added DiffLines:

* ChekhovsGun: The bracelet engraved "12:36" that Harvey gives Sabrina in "As Westbridge Turns".
** It first appears to be merely a slightly eccentric gift from Harvey (12:36 is the time Harvey and Sabrina first spoke back in the "Pilot" episode). However, when Libby steals Mr. Pool's engagement ring and attempts to frame Sabrina for the crime, the bracelet turns out to be key to establishing an alibi for Sabrina's.
** The bracelet finds a place in Sabrina's jewelry box, and it isn't seen again until the [[GrandFinale series finale]], "Soul Mates". Morgan swiped it from the box and gives it to Sabrina as her "something old" for her wedding to Aaron. Sabrina recognizes it as a gift from Harvey, and remembers the significance of the inscription 12:36. This prompts her to call off her wedding to Aaron. At 12:36 exactly, she leaves the church to find Harvey waiting outside, realizing that he's her soul mate.

'''''Sabrina the Teenage Witch''''' is a live-action series that ran from 1996 to 2003, based on [[ComicBook/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch the Archie comic book]]. It was preceded by a PilotMovie with better production values, but a mainly different and much less memorable cast.

** As part of a night where in ''Sabrina'', Salem had swallowed a ball that allowed the holder to travel to a different time period, the night saw Salem turn up in the other shows on the TGIF lineup at the time, ''Series/BoyMeetsWorld'', ''TeenAngel'' and ''YouWish''. This didn't translate well when going overseas, as not every show was exported to the channel - For example, in the UK ''Sabrina'' aired on Nickelodeon, but ''TeenAngel'' (Which featured the end of the event) & ''Series/BoyMeetsWorld'' aired on the Disney Channel.

** In the pilot episode, Sabrina's aunts give her a tiny cauldron for her birthday (before they tell her she's a witch) and she says - clearly trying not to hurt their feelings- that she can keep pens in it. Later episodes throughout the season do in fact reveal her using it as a pen-holder.



** It's also worth noting that when Jenny is "found guilty" of being a witch in "The Crucible", Mr Pool says "you can pretend we hanged her" instead of burning. He was with the history teacher after all.

* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: The series was somewhat notorious for this. Several major or reccuring characters (Drell, Jenny, Mr. Pool, Mrs. Quick, Dreama, Brad and Miles) vanished without a trace.

* AllWitchesHaveCats: Sabrina has Salem -- though in seasons 1 - 5 he technially belongs to Hilda, before she is pardoned by the Witches' Council and is no longer charged with taking care of him. After that he gradually becomes Sabrina's cat, and in Season 7 he lives with her after Hilda and Zelda have left the show.

* {{Adorkable}}: Miles.

to:

* {{Adorkable}}: Miles.AdaptationPersonalityChange: Sort of. In the comics Zelda was the ditzy aunt and Hilda the responsible one (and the PilotMovie had this). The show swaps them around, with Hilda as the ditz and Zelda the responsible one.
* {{Adorkable}}:
** Miles, Sabrina's conspiracy theorist and sci-fi nut of a roommate in Seasons 5-6.



** There's also a magical quota when magic is used on mortals, exceed it and magic won't work on that particular person anymore... at least for awhile.
*** This seems to hold true only for memory-related spells.
**** Actually, only the memories of the events are erased; if their nose is broken, for example, it would stay broken and another reason would be put in their head after their true memory is erased.

* ArtisticLicenseHistory: When trying to dissuade her friend from trying out for the cheerleading squad, Sabrina blurts out that no cheerleader was every elected president...except that DwightEisenhower had been cheerleader. Excusable as it's a throwaway line.
** HilariousInHindsight as George W. Bush was also a cheerleader, but was not yet president at the time of the episode airing.

Aunt Hilda.
Hilda is notably less knowledgeable about science and other academic stuff than Zelda, but she does possess some street smarts.
** Harvey.Harvey, and one episode has Sabrina fretting over this and worrying he won't get into a good college.



* BrokenAesop: Some people think this applies to the final episode when Sabrina ends up choosing her (magically) destined partner Harvey over her fiancee, despite the fact that several characters tell her that even though their soul crystals do not match, what matters is what the heart wants...
** Of course the characters' conjectures still hold true, since Sabrina spends half her engagement questioning her feelings towards the groom in favor of Harvey. It's made blatantly obvious that Sabrina and her high-school sweetie are not only destined partners by magic, but actually love each other more than anything.
* BubblePipe: The episode where Sabrina's friend ends up in the Other Realm has the woman who reads out the laws of said realm blow on a bubble pipe when she's having her conversation with Sabrina.

* BurnTheWitch: Played with in an episode. Sabrina's class visits Salem; everyone was given a little slip saying if they were a witch or not, and were supposed to find the witch. Sabrina loses hers without reading it. After all the predictable accusation hijinks goes down, the teacher announces that nobody had a slip that said "witch", as a lesson to the class about crazy witchhunts. Sabrina finds her slip on the bus home, which says "witch" on it. Salem... is not a good place for witches.
** It's also worth noting that when Jenny is "found guilty" of being a witch, Mr Pool says "you can pretend we hanged her" instead of burning. He was with the history teacher after all.
