* HoYay:
** Harvey and Pi's friendship is extremely tight knit. The two are rarely seen apart. Pi even gets jealous (very jealous) when Harvey befriends young Thomas Edison. Also the scene in "What becomes of the broken hearted, when Harvey is trying to beat the arcade game, Pi waits for him through all 50 levels, even falling asleep on the floor. There's also the scene towards the end of Paranormal Pi where, Pi is practically in tears because Harvey refused to believe him. (It's clear at the beginning of this episode that if just Harvey believes him he'll be okay). And let's not forget "I got glue babe," when after Sabrina and Gem leave the two end up a riding a rollercoaster, all day, together. That just screams 'Date'.
** Sabrina and Chloe in "Witchy Girls" since the two of them arguing about what they want back from each other is a clear parallel to a DivorceAssetsConflict.

* {{Anvilicious}}: Every moral in this show.
** True, though the morals are usually done a humorous way so that it's not too annoying (the same is true for the live-action series) and sometimes it does deviate from the norm in it's morals. In "A Witchmas Carol," which at first looks like it's going to be [[YetAnotherChristmasCarol yet another version]] of ''Literature/AChristmasCarol'' where the complete {{jerkass}} ends up getting scared into being nice for the holiday season (in this case with Gem, who's more a jerkass here than in the entire series), Sabrina attempts to scare Gem into getting the Christmas spirit by casting a Christmas Carol spell. In a twist, the plan fails as the ghosts of Christmas past (Hilda), present (Zelda), and future (Sabrina) only make Gem love herself even more (even the fact that she won't be missed by anyone in her family -- not even her nanny -- when she dies doesn't bother her) and Sabrina discovers that she only hatched the plan because she disagreed with Gem's views on Christmas rather than as a genuine effort to change her, so Sabrina gives Gem a gift and wishes her happy holidays instead. Gem, at first, brushes off the gift, but is touched after realizing no one in her family is home with her for the holidays and Sabrina was the only person who cared enough about her to give her a present. So the moral ends up being "You shouldn't try to force someone to change, no matter how seemingly cold-hearted they are in order to save face. Instead you should try being nice to them in spite of everything else". That's one moral that you don't see in most shows like this, whether or not they do a parody of ''A Christmas Carol''.
** Don't even think about anorexia; If shrinking to the size of an ant isn't enough punishment, then General Cheesehead would like a word with you.

** Don't even
think about anorexia; If Harvey will be impressed. Everyone else points out that the model they want to look like is too skinny and scrawny. When they resort to magic to lose the weight, they end up shrinking to the size of an ant isn't enough punishment, then General Cheesehead would like earthworms.
** "Molar Molar" contains
a word with you.rather heavy-handed sequence where Sabrina goes to cross the street while the Don't Walk sign is flashing, nearly gets hit by a car and says out loud "I didn't even look both ways!"



* SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: The one mentioned in the ChristmasEpisode above. Also the episode where Sabrina decides to become an adult and then quickly realises all the responsibilities that come with it. Even more poignant was the spell - if she didn't reverse it within a specific time frame then she would be an adult forever. A very powerful metaphor for how if children don't enjoy their childhood while they have it, it'll be gone before they can appreciate it.

to:

* SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: SeasonalRot: Virtually no one likes ''Sabrina's Secret Life''. Fan favourite characters like Gem, Pi and Chloe get PutOnABus, Harvey becomes a complete idiot and Sabrina herself becomes a massive {{Jerkass}}. The overall quality of writing decreases, becoming far more 'educational' that the rather well-thought out Aesops of the previous show.
* SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped:
** The ChristmasEpisode. It subverts the usual cliche of doing YetAnotherChristmasCarol where a scrooge is scared into being nice for the holidays. Sabrina's attempted spell just makes Gem love herself even more, and she grudgingly admits that she mainly just wanted revenge. So she ends up giving Gem a sincere gift and wishing her Merry Christmas anyway. Gem realises that no
one mentioned in else cared enough to be with her on Christmas, and joins Sabrina and her friends for the ChristmasEpisode above. celebrations.

** In one episode, Sabrina's teacher asks her what the ninth planet in the solar system is called. Her response: "There isn't a ninth planet. There are only eight". Cue everyone laughing at her.
** Creator/ChantalStrand voices a RichBitch and in one episode complains about her polo ponies being stolen. One wonders if one of the ponies was named [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Diamond Tiara]]. Also hilarious since Britt [=McKillip=] (Princess Cadance) is the second voice for Sabrina.

** The rumour episode of the sequel series. The episode hinges on Sabrina and friends believing rumours as if they're grade schoolers - when they're actually ''older'' than the previous series. As such it's a clear CaptainObviousAesop.

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Sabrina in ''Sabrina's Secret Life'' is prone to a lot of {{Jerkass}} behaviour. It's usually to set her up learning AnAesop and the show has no problem calling her out for her mistakes. But the sheer amount of nasty things she does makes her rather unsympathetic - notably teaming with Cassandra to get revenge on Maritza, casting a spell to make Harvey fawn over her, believing an obvious rumour about Harvey cheating on tests and getting half the Netherworld sick with gargoyle flu.
* TheWoobie: You have to feel really sorry for Maritza in the episode with the school dance. She only asks Harvey out to stop Cassandra from doing so - fully intending to suggest he go with Sabrina instead of her. Unfortunately Sabrina gets the wrong idea and breaks off their friendship, not to mention conspiring with Cassandra to get revenge.
