For those out of the know, the cartoon was more like an AlternateContinuity than a prologue to the live action series as it contradicts many things. For example, in the main show Sabrina comes into her powers on her sixteenth birthday and learns that her family (save for her mother) are witches. In the animated show, Sabrina is a preteen and already has her powers as well as knows about the magical nature of her family. In this version, Sabrina goes to middle school in between learning to use her magic. Harvey goes to the same school along with her and of course the two develop a like for one another. Her rival on the school ground is Gem Stone (acting as a preteen AlphaBitch for Libby) and her best friend is Chloe, the only human who knows of Sabrina's secret. Her aunts, Zelda and Hilda, are in this version as well but are stuck in teenage bodies for a never revealed punishment. Thus, they have to be looked on by their Uncle Quigley (another original character) till then. Salem still lives with the bunch as usual and, being an animated show, is given much more movement than his live action counterpart.

* BadassNormal: Tim The Witch Smeller is a villainous variation of this; using science to swore revenge on witches since he bullied as a kid for being a MuggleBornOfMages.

** The ''Friends Forever'' movie introduces an AlphaBitch called Portia. The series uses her character model, but a different voice actress, for Cassandra.

* FreudianExcuse: Tim the Witch-Smeller's hatred of witches comes from them tormenting him when he was a child.

* FreudianExcuse: Tim the Witch-Smeller's hatred of witches comes from them tormenting him when he was a child. Why was he tormented? Because he was a MuggleBornOfMages.



* HumansAreUgly: Hilda and Zelda are cursed to be human teenagers for undisclosed reasons. One episode has Zelda bemoan her lost haggard appearance. Hilda does not seem to mind, though, especially since she looks like Victoria Beckham. Weidly enough, Enchantra resembles an attractive, young woman, herself.

* HumansAreUgly: A rather odd example, since witches look exactly like humans. Hilda and Zelda are cursed to be human appear as teenagers for undisclosed reasons. One episode has Zelda bemoan her lost haggard appearance. Hilda does not seem to mind, though, especially since she looks like Victoria Beckham. Weidly enough, Enchantra resembles an attractive, young woman, herself. Though it seems to be a cultual thing since age garners respect in the witch community.

** Subverted. Due to only DiC and Les Studios Tex working on the series (Disney split up with DiC at the time and Melissa Joan Hart didn't produce the show anymore), the animation and character design was pretty lazy, such as how Maritza was just a recolored version of Chloe, and Cassandra was a background student (once shown in Gem's posse originally unnamed!) in the 1999 series.

Added DiffLines:

* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway: Harvey's comic book superheroes {{lampshade|Hanging}} their own lame powers (including the villain). They include Gazebo Boy who turns himself into a gazebo to trap people in, Mega Girl with "Atomic Tantrum Power" (though that's arguably more effective than she makes it out to be) and Shoe Horn who has gadgets that appear to be monster shoes. There's also Calamari Queen who can shoot squids out of her hands (though it's helpful when the artist runs out of ink necessary to finish the story).

Added DiffLines:

* TemporaryBulkChange: In "Harvzilla", Sabrina douses Harvey with dragon spray, eventually making him taller and buffer to the point that his baggy shirt became formfitting. Of course, as an analogy to steroids, this dragon spray made Harvey [[TookALevelInJerkass considerably more aggressive and mean-spirited, shocking even Sabrina when he glowered at Gem.]] He also became obsessed with good luck, needing Sabrina's "cologne" to have the confidence to function before a big match and even then he was clinging to four-leaf clovers and rabbit feet. After the aforementioned ScaledUp, he was returned to normal.

* {{Like brother and sister}}: Sabrina and Salem what with their constant bickering and Salem acting as a. {{Big brother mentor}} to Sabrina especially in secret life

Added DiffLines:

* ReusedCharacterDesign: Many side characters have designs that are recycled from the first series. For example:
** As said below, Maritza is just Chloe with lighter skin, smaller eyes and different clothes, while Cassandra and her lackeys were recycled from Portia and her lackeys from ''Friends Forever''.
** Bildebaar from Wizenheimer, the elder wizard from "Teacher's Pet", looks exactly like the Wise Wizard from the first series.
** When everyone becomes a monster in "School Spirit", the mummy baseball player from "Field of Screams" can be seen multiple times in the background, among with many other one-shot characters from the first series.
