* FormerTropeNamer: For AlphaBitch - previously known as 'The Libby' because Libby was such a shining example of the character. By extension this named other tropes - LovableAlphaBitch (Lovable Libby), BackstabbingTheAlphaBitch (Knifing The Libby In The Bank) and FormerFriendOfAlphaBitch (Libby My Old Friend).

* RealLifeRelative: Recurring character Amanda (Sabrina's evil cousin) was played by Melissa's little sister, Emily Hart. Who, as noted above, ended up playing Sabrina herself in the cartoon.

* ChannelHop: Moved from Creator/{{ABC}} to TheWB. * DawsonCasting: Pretty much the whole "teenage" cast but notably Melissa Joan Hart (Sabrina) (b. 1976), Jenna Leigh Green ([[AlphaBitch Libby]]), (b. 1974) and Lindsay Sloane (Valerie) (b. 1977). ** One of the student extras was a ''[[http://imgur.com/p4R9ga4 balding man]]''!

** David Lascher previously played a character called Josh in ''{{Series/Clueless}}'' - which had a crossover with this, featuring Sabrina. ** Robbie Benson just ''had'' to do [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast The Beast's voice]] when he showed up. * AwesomeDearBoy: Soleil Moon Frye and Melissa Joan Hart had been good friends since their child star days and had longed to star in a project together. * ChannelHop: Moved from Creator/{{ABC}} to TheWB. TheWB. As a result, most of the cast members aside from the Spellmans, Salem and Josh were fired (though Harvey was brought back eventually after fan protests). * DawsonCasting: Pretty much the whole "teenage" cast but notably Melissa Joan Hart (Sabrina) (b. 1976), Jenna Leigh Green ([[AlphaBitch Libby]]), (b. 1974) and Lindsay Sloane (Valerie) (b. 1977). ** 1977).

* ChannelHop: Moved from Creator/{{ABC}} ExecutiveMeddling: According to TheWB. * DawsonCasting: Pretty much Michelle Beaudoin, the whole "teenage" cast but notably Melissa Joan Hart (Sabrina) (b. 1976), Jenna Leigh Green ([[AlphaBitch Libby]]), (b. 1974) and Lindsay Sloane (Valerie) (b. 1977). ** One of reason Jenny was axed was because the student extras was a ''[[http://imgur.com/p4R9ga4 balding man]]''!network wanted Sabrina to have an 'ethnic' best friend. This is odd, seeing as her replacement Valerie wasn't ethnic (unless being half Jewish counts). Sabrina does gain an ethnic best friend in Valerie's replacement Dreama.

** Norm from ''Series/{{Cheers}}'' is Sabrina's boss in season 6. *** Also from ''Series/{{Cheers}}'': Cliff is SantaClaus, of all things. *** Still another from ''Series/{{Cheers}}'': [[ShelleyLong Diane]] is a lovely-yet-wicked witch whose cottage is on top of a giant beanstalk.

The first would have been about her, Allie and Marigold moving in with Emile and his boys - one of whom played by Frankie Muniz. The second would have focused on her hijinx at Witchright Hall. Neither happened, though Emily Hart did get to voice Sabrina in the AnimatedAdaptation. ** The plot of Season 7 would have revolved around Josh proposing to Sabrina and the growing love triangle with Harvey. When David Lascher opted to leave the show, Aaron Jacobs was created to fill his role. Additionally they wanted a two-part finale but were only granted one episode. ** Some plans for a Season 8 would have involved Sabrina and [[spoiler: Harvey]] moving into a haunted house. Barbara Eden would have joined the show as a regular.

Not trivia.
* CastingGag: Sabrina's cousin Amanda is played by Emily Hart, Melissa's sister, who'd later voice Sabrina in [[WesternAnimation/SabrinaTheAnimatedSeries the animated series]].

*** Still another from ''Series/{{Cheers}}'': [[ShelleyLong Diane]] is a lovely-yet-wicked witch whose cottage is on top of a giant beanstalk. And she's brunette--perhaps in an inside-joke LightFeminineDarkFeminine contrast ''to'' Diane, or...something.

** Robin Ricker plays Cousin Marigold, the mother of a bratty witch daughter. Around the same time she also starred in the ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' episode "Witch", where she also played the mother of a witch daughter [[spoiler: [[GrandTheftMe or so we think]] as the episode goes on]]. Buffy even says during the episode "she's our Sabrina".

** Salem is [[WesternAnimation/TheAngryBeavers Norbert Beaver]] in a cat's body. Seriously. The latter two telefilms (''Sabrina Goes to Paris'' and ''Sabrina Down Under'') starred TaraStrong as Sabrina's overseas friend.

Which would probably explain why prominent guest stars included Wrestling/BillyGunn, {{Wrestling/Chyna}} and Wrestling/KevinNash - the latter appearing in a BigLippedAlligatorMoment
