* WaitingSkeleton: in the episode "Quiz Show", Zelda recalls how she was a teacher once, but got so fed up by the students constantly asking questions that she fled the classroom, leaving them behind. She wonders what became of them. The scene then cuts to said classroom, where only 2 (now very old) students are still alive and waiting while the others have turned into skeletons and are covered in cobwebs.

''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.

[[DangerousSixteenthBirthday On her 16th birthday]], Sabrina Spellman, resident of Westbridge, MA, discovers that she is a witch and has magical powers. She moves in with her witch aunts Hilda and Zelda, and learns to survive the pratfalls of high school with a little magic on her side. Other fixtures in her life were her talking cat Salem (a wizard punished for his megalomania by being trapped in an animal body), her oblivious love interest Harvey, and her mortal enemy Libby (former {{Trope Namer|s}} for the AlphaBitch).

* PassedOverInheritance: The Spellman's hillbilly cousins in "Witch Trash" hate their relatives because their great-grandmother left the Spellman's the family magic book instead of them, and spend most of the episode trying to force them to give it to them. It's later subverted when Great-Granny (whose not dead. Witch's use will's to clear out what they accumulate of the centuries) turns up and reveals the cousin's 'did' get something from the inheritence, a large amount of money that they specifically asked for. The only reason they want the book now is because [[AFoolAndHisNewMoneyAreSoonParted they wasted the money and have nothing left to show for it]].

* HeroicSacrifice: When Zelda's actress, Beth Broderick, left the show in the sixth season. The writers wrote her out of it by having her sacrifice age and be reduced to a child to cure Sabrina from becoming a stone before Hilda and she moved out. She does it again in the series finale by allowing herself to become a candle so Sabrina's mother can attend her wedding without worrying about the Council's rules.

* AmbiguouslyJewish:
** Miles Goodman, Sabrina's college housemate in Seasons 5-6. Aside from the Jewish name "Goodman", he comes from a family of accountants, mentioned an [[JewishMother overprotective mother]] who threatens him if he doesn't call, and once brings back matzo balls after visiting home.
** Salem Saberhagen mentions his niece having had a Bat Mitzvah, indicating the Saberhagens are a Jewish (witch) family, or leastways that Salem has some Jewish relatives.
** To a lesser extent, Aaron Jacobs, Sabrina's DisposableFiance in the last season. Aaron Jacobs, for those who don't know, is a ''very'' Jewish name. His mother is a psychiatrist, a stereotypically Jewish profession, who wrote a book called [[JewishMother "Not With My Son You Don't"]]. His father is a nuclear physicist.

The show was extremely similar in characterization and plot-structure to the 1980s SitCom ''Series/OutOfThisWorld'', but was in fact based on material which predated that show by several decades: the same Franchise/ArchieComics as the series ''WesternAnimation/SabrinaAndTheGroovieGoolies'' -- though the animated show went in a very different direction. There were also two additional TV movies, ''Film/SabrinaGoesToRome'' and ''Film/SabrinaDownUnder'' featuring Tara Strong in a very rare live action role as a movie-exclusive character Gwen.
