Not to be confused with ''WesternAnimation/SabrinaAndTheGroovieGoolies'', this is the AnimatedAdaptation of the sitcom ''Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch'', which itself was already adapted from a comic book by ArchieComics.

Being produced by Creator/DICEntertainment during the time it was owned by Creator/{{Disney}} and having run on Creator/{{ABC}}'s One Saturday Morning and its weekday afternoon counterpart One Too on {{UPN}}, it was oddly treated like it was as much of a show by Disney as the company's actual productions. The reruns on ToonDisney placed it in the same primetime block as Disney cartoons like ''WesternAnimation/HouseOfMouse'' and ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'', even though it was pretty obvious that this was not an actual Disney cartoon. In its original run, the show lasted from September, 1999 to February, 2000 for a total of 65 episodes.

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.

After DIC split up from Disney, they produced a MadeForTVMovie titled ''Sabrina: Friends Forever'', which served as the pilot to a new syndicated series titled ''Sabrina's Secret Life'', which was basically a follow-up to the first series. Many of the original characters from the first series were PutOnABus or [[BrotherChuck brother chucked]] and, since by this point Disney had ended their contract with DIC, features none of the original voice actors either. In this version, Sabrina now going to high school (further contradicting the main series, but only two years younger) is now at the age where she can attend magic school as well. She quickly finds a new rival in Cassandra, who's a full witch--and will let Sabrina know it every chance she gets. Of course, Sabrina more than willing to prove being full blooded doesn't mean you're automatically better.

Ironically, reruns of ''Sabrina's Secret Life'' briefly popped up on ToonDisney for a while. After that, they were aired for a while on Saturday mornings on Creator/{{CBS}}'s ''CookieJar TV'' block in 2010, with "Sabrina's Secret Life" joining it on September 18. On February 5, they were replaced by ''WesternAnimation/{{Trollz}}'' and ''WesternAnimation/{{Horseland}}''.

Now has a [[Characters/SabrinaTheAnimatedSeries character page]].
----
!!''SabrinaTheAnimatedSeries'' contains examples of:
* {{Adorkable}}: Pi and Harvey.
* AffectionateParody: The show really loved this one. Let's see...
** "La Femme Sabrina" - spy films
** "Xabrina Warrior Witch" - video games
** "Wiccan of the Sea" - ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid''
** "Hexcalibur" - King Arthur
** "The Senses Shattering Adventures of Harvtastic" - comic books/superheroes
** "When In Rome" - ''{{Gladiator}}''
* AlphaBitch: Gem. She gains a witch counterpart in the MadeForTVMovie "Sabrina: Friends Forever".
* AsHimself: Music/WeirdAlYankovic in "Witchy Grrrls".
* AssumedWin: In the MadeForTVMovie "Sabrina: Friends Forever", the movie's AlphaBitch assumed she'd win an award but Sabrina won.
* BadFuture: One that caused by stealing oddly enough.
* BadassAdorable: Sabrina can be like this a few times.
* 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.
* BalloonBelly: Sabrina in one episode... after chowing down a LOT of garlic in "The Bat Pack"
** And Salem in another episode.
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: A major theme in the first series as, since Sabrina wasn't powerful enough yet, had to rely on the "Spooky Jar" who would grant Sabrina's desire at the moment. Typical of course these would always backfire and Sabrina would have to find a way to fix the problem.
* BetweenMyLegs: During the episode "Nothin' Spells Lovin Like Somethin' From a Coven", while Sabrina and Gem are arguing, this shot is used with Gem's legs as framing.
* BigEater: Salem.
** And Harvey if the episode calls for it.
* {{Bishonen}}: Pi has very feminine features, and on top of that he's also voiced by a woman.
* BlackBestFriend: Chloe.
* BlondBrunetteRedhead: Sabrina (blond), Zelda (redhead), and Hilda (brunette)
* BreakTheCutie: Harvey when he finds out his favorite cartoon got cancelled and when he was playing an arcade game at a very high level until an employee accidentally restarted it. PlayedForLaughs.
** Pi in "Paranormal Pi" when Sabrina is forced to make his magic tracker go on the fritz so her secret won't be discovered, humiliating him in front of a crowd of people in the process.
* BrokeEpisode: One episode featured Gem's family losing all their money, with Gem moving into Sabrina's house.
* BrokenAesop: The moral of "Moldy Oldie" is basically that it's wrong to deny an elderly person a place in society just because they have so many years of experience, never mind the fact that said elderly person may be senile and/or a danger to himself or others.
* CatchPhrase: Pi had two. "Mi Amigo" and "chyah"
* CatsAreMagic: Salem, Scheherazade
* CatsAreSnarkers: Salem
* ChristmasEpisode ("[[YetAnotherChristmasCarol Witchmas Carole]]")
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Pi. And depending on the episode, Harvey (The latter [[{{Flanderization}} flanderized]] in ''Sabrina's Secret Life'').
* ComedicUnderwearExposure: "Shrink to Fit" has magic used to fit into tight jeans backfire as it's victims shrink even further to doll size, the first indication of this is the pants becoming too ''big''. Oddly both Chloe (green) and Sabrina (blue) are wearing boxers.
** Also in "Send In The Clones" Sabrina casts a spell on Gem, causing her pants to rip, and we can see she's wearing panties.
* CoolAndUnusualPunishment: Hilda and Zelda teenage forms are the result for "abusing magic" in the past (which is kinda weird, Hilda one can understand but Zelda?). Apparently being "young and beautiful" as Zelda quips is a dishonor in the witches world.
** Could also be seen as CursedWithAwesome.
** Enchantra punishes them for allowing her to flirt with a conjured up version of [[RomeoAndJuliet Romeo]] by making them go out in public dressed as Rock-Hopper Penguins for a week.
* CoolLoser: Sabrina and Chloe appear to be in the unpopular crowd for no reason other than because the popular kids say so.
* CrowdSong: "Goin' To The Beach" from the episode "Wiccan Of The Sea".
* CuteMonsterGirl: Sabrina in Harvey's comic book world where she appears to be half-girl, half-squid. She also appears to have been aged by a few years - judging by her chest area. The comic was drawn by a 13-year-old boy.
** Also Grimadonna the Netherworld superstar. She's an attractive woman with blue skin, pointy ears and fangs.
* DarkHorseVictory: In "Wag the Witch," Sabrina runs for class president and Gem tries to ruin her campaign by having a reporter for the school newspaper follow her and watch her every move. Sabrina conjures up a pair of glasses that make the reporter see Sabrina as a normal tween girl. The reporter ends up running an article about how boring Sabrina is and endorses the school's resident Strange Boy Pi, who wins the election.
* DidntThinkThisThrough: Sabrina a good number of the times in the show. One example, she figures Gem's life is so easy since she's rich. So she uses a spell to switch lives with her. Not only does she find Gem's life not as glamorous as expected (she has tutors who constantly have Sabrina do "Proper Etiquette" exercises which run Sabrina ragged). But since Gem now has her life, ''she's a witch'' and well, you kinda guess how a AlphaBitch would be if she has magical powers.
* {{Disneyesque}}: While the show was part of OneSaturdayMorning, Disney didn't make it (though Buena Vista produced the first series)...though the art style is ''very'' similar to various Disney movies.
* DisproportionateRetribution: Tim the Witch Hunter's reason for hunting witches was because they made fun of him during his schools days.
* TheDitz: Harvey.
* EldritchAbomination: Harvey's comic book world has a thing called the Dreaded Dysphilia which takes the form of a giant ball of fungus that functions in the same way as The Nothing from ''TheNeverEndingStory''. Even more Eldritch, Harvey didn't create it so he has no idea how to destroy it and more importantly it feeds off his negative self-esteem. That's right, a monster that feeds off the negative self-esteem of a ''teenager''.
* EverybodyLaughsEnding: Occasionally used, as well as Everybody Laughs Credits at the end of every episode.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: "When in Rome" reveals that even Gem would never intentionally kill someone.
** In "Documagicary" during the EngineeredPublicConfession where the [[NewMediaAreEvil evil reality show director]] explains that he released Tim, endangering the lives of witches everywhere, for ratings, even ''Tim'' is shocked at '''''how evil''''' this guy is.
* TheFaceless: Salem in flashbacks to when he was a human warlock.
* {{Familiar}}: Salem to the Spellmans, as part of his punishment.
* FantasticRacism: Against mortals and half-witches.
** And in the case of Tim the Witch Smeller, against witches '''''PERIOD.'''''
** According to the Witch's counsel, half-witches are inferior to full witches.
* FelonyMisdemeanor: In "What Becomes of the Broken Hearted?" we see flashbacks of Harvey and Gem getting their hearts broken by trivial things.
* FiveManBand: Sabrina, her friends and Gem actually have one of these going, albeit lightly.
** {{The Leader}} - Sabrina. It's her show after all.
** {{The Lancer}} - Chloe. She's slightly more level headed than Sabrina at times and often provides the conscience for her (the halloween episode has a good example)
** {{The Smart Guy}} - Pi. He's a genius. He's also physically weak (Harvey often protects him as in Paranormal Pi)
** {{The Big Guy}} - Harvey. The only masculine boy in the group. The others are girls and Pi is a feminine boy. He's also not very smart at times.
** {{The Chick}} - Gem. She's much girlier than Sabrina and Chloe and far more hung up on trends and beauty.
* FollowTheLeader: Deemed to be the worst example of the wave of comic book themed show imitating WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries.
* ForHalloweenIAmGoingAsMyself: Sabrina wore a witch costume.
* FreudianExcuse: Tim the Witch-Smeller's hatred of witches comes from them tormenting him when he was a child.
* {{Gasshole}}: See BalloonBelly above. After eating all of that garlic, Sabrina becomes victim to frequent garlic-scented burps [[spoiler: which come in quite handy when fighting vampires]].
* GirlGroup: Sabrina, Hilda, Zelda and Chloe form one for a talent contest. They cast a spell to become legit famous. The spell to do so reference The Bangles, The Go Gos, Spice Girls and The Supremes.
* GiveGeeksAChance: Harvey isn't exactly the coolest guy around, yet Gem has an all too transparent crush on him.
* GodivaHair: [[spoiler: Rainbow/ Frau Strudel]] at the end of "Has Anybody Seen My Quigley?" while running from the police.
* HalloweenEpisode: "Nothin' Says Lovin' Like Somethin' from a Coven"
* HiddenEyes: Pi's eyes are always hidden under his hat.
** You do see them for a second in "Paranormal Pi" when [[TheBully Slugloaf]] knocks him into a bush, but they're closed the whole time.
* HollywoodOld: Sabrina's adult self just has glasses and is slightly taller than her teenage self. Yet she's referred to as an old lady by numerous other characters.
* 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.
* HumiliationConga: In "Paranormal Pi" when Pi's paranormal activity tracker is homing in on Sabrina's house with a large mob of people following him, Sabrina has no choice but to make it look like the device didn't work, utterly humiliating him.
* IKissYourFoot: In "Witch Switch", witch Gem made Harvey his hypnotic slave and forced him to kiss her feet.
* IncredibleShrinkingMan: The episode "Shrink to Fit".
* InvoluntaryShapeshifting: Sabrina into a fish in the episode "Fish Schtick". A partial example as she said she wanted to ''swim like'' a fish, so the magic turned her into one. Sabrina, Chloe and Salem transforming into mermaids in "Wiccan of the Sea" also counts.
* ItWasAllJustADream: see CrowdSong.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Salem, and Gem occasionally.
* KarmaHoudini: "Picture Perfect" ends with Sabrina winning the student of the year award, but then giving it up by admitting she cheated. Instead Gem wins, despite her having also cheated. The closest thing she gets to a punishment is everyone walking out on her victory speech.
* LargeHam: Alvin. Don't EVER laugh at him!
* LimitedWardrobe: Everyone in the show....with the exception of Gem.
** Gem actually [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] this in one episode: "Great outfit, Spellman. I just never get tired of seeing you in it."
* MagicPants: In "Shrink to Fit" when Sabrina and Chloe are small enough to fit into doll clothing the clothes shrink with them to the point when they became practically microscopic. Which is very odd by the fact that their normal clothes did not shrink with them at all EmptyPilesofClothing
** [[ExactWords Well, they did ask to be able to fit their new clothes in first place.]]
* MeaningfulName: Enchantra's servant Stabbenback. Sabrina and Enchantra learned the meaning the hard way.
* {{Meganekko}}: Zelda.
* MiniDressOfPower: Aunt Hilda wears one.
* MoralityPet: Alvin from the episode "Planet of the Dogs" starts off like this but after being neglected and gaining the ability to speak, becomes a KnightTemplar and NobleDemon for the neglected and abused neighborhood dogs.
* MuggleBestFriend: Chloe.
* MuggleBornOfMages: Tim the Witch-Smeller. In this series he seems to be a unique case, which is why all his empowered peers [[FreudianExcuse made his life hell]].
* NakedPeopleAreFunny: At the end of "Has Anyone Seen My Quigley?"
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: The director in "Documagicary" is a GiantSpider named [[Creator/QuentinTarantino Quentin Tarantulino]].
** Harvey's favorite actor in "Feats Of Clay" is [[StevenSeagal Devin Degall]]
* NobleDemon: As noted, Alvin from "Planet of the Dogs".
* OurMermaidsAreDifferent: Sabrina, Chloe and Salem are unwillingly turned into mermaids by the Spooky Jar. They can breathe and communicate underwater just fine though there's a time limit on the spell and they have to return to the island they started out on when it runs out or else they'll be mermaids forever.
* ParentService: Hilda and Enchantra were probably designed with this in mind.
* PresentCompanyExcluded: When Quigley learned about Tim's Freudian Excuse, he made a comment about witches and then remembered he was talking to witches.
* PoorCommunicationKills
* PunnyName: Gem Stone, anyone?
** Also, the one shot character, Dorsala Finn (Who just so happens to be a swimmer).
* RefrainFromAssuming: There is no song called "Have You Seen Her?" The theme song is officially titled, "She'll Bewitch Ya".
* [[RefugeeFromTVLand Refugee from Once-Upon-a-Time Land]]: Sabrina accidentally brings Literature/{{Cinderella}} into the real world for a while. Due to her whiny nature and AnnoyingLaugh, Sabrina finds her more obnoxious than expected.
* ReusedCharacterDesign: When Sabrina tries to help Harvey escape a world populated by fairy tale characters, she notices that Cinderella's stepsisters look and sound exactly like Gem, except for the fact one of them has a different hairstyle. She lampshades this by commenting, "Isn't it amazing how all pain in the neck girls kind of look alike?"
* SarcasmFailure: Harvey is prone to this.
* ScrewPolitenessImASenior: Uncle Zamboni in "Paranormal Pi"
* SealedEvilInACan: The Spooky Jar.
** Though not all that evil as it at the least gave Sabrina a ResetButton for most of her wishes.
* SecretKeeper: Chloe
* ShakingHerHairLoose: When the girls turn their strict nanny into a GranolaGirl, she immediately unties her hair and shakes it free.
* SheCleansUpNicely: Lampshaded and discussed in "La Femme Sabrina" about how it always shows up in spy movies. She and Harvey are indeed in a gown and tux respectively. Subverted though when it turns out they're at a rodeo and therefore overdressed.
--> '''Sabrina:''' Ever notice how there's always a big formal wear scene?
--> '''Harvey:''' I know. It gets the hero into a tux.
* ShoutOut: In "Fish Shtick", new student Dorsala Finn is said to have transferred from [[ArchieComics Riverdale High]].
** The girls' warlock great-grandfather is named [[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings Gandalf]]. Makes sense, given his profession.
** Tim's [[AntiMagic Spell Scrambler]] looks similar to a [[Film/Ghostbusters Proton Pack]].
* SickEpisode: Sabrina catches [[MalfunctionMalady witchitis]]... MagicMisfire and HilarityEnsues.
* SixtyFiveEpisodeCartoon
* ThisLooksLikeAJobForAquaman: In Harvey's comic book world Sabrina's power to shoot squids out of her hands is as useless as you'd expect...until the hero whose power is to make anything he draws come to life runs out of ink and Sabrina remembers what squids are good for.
* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: The usual reaction by mortals whenever a spell is cast right in front of their eyes.
* WeWantOurJerkBack: Subverted. When Sabrina unwittingly made a cake that reversed its eater's personality, Gem became a nice girl clever enough to figure out Sabrina's secret. Together, the two of them developed an antidote that turned everyone back to normal and made them [[StatusQuoIsGod forget everything]]. When Gem was the only one left, Sabrina tried to convince her '''NOT''' to drink it because she likes the new Gem better. The new Gem decided that bringing back the old one was the right thing to do and, as her parting words, told Sabrina she'll still be deep somewhere inside the original Gem.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: In "What Becomes of the Broken Hearted?" Sabrina is told to search for one person who never had their heart broken. Eventually she gives up, saying she checked everyone she could. This would imply Pi was among the people she checked, but we never see his broken heart flashback and it's hard to imagine how someone as laid back as him could have his heart broken.
* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway: Harvey's superheroes in his comic book world don't like their powers which involve - turning into a gazebo to trap villains (Gazebo Boy), Atomic Tantrum Power (Mega Girl) and shooting a squid out of your hands (Calamari Queen).
** HeartIsAnAwesomePower: Mega Girl's power does subdue the villain. And when Harvey's 'draw it and it comes to life' pen runs out of ink, Calamari Queen remembers what squids are good for.
* WhosLaughingNow: Tim when he actually becomes a threat to the witches who once mocked him.
* WhoWantsToLiveForever: Or morever "Who Wants To Be Young And Beautiful Forever"?
* YetAnotherChristmasCarol: Bizarrely done twice! The first time, done as the show's Christmas special, featured Sabrina and her aunts trying to convince Gem to change her ways. Funnily enough, the episode also lampshaded how ''Literature/AChristmasCarol'' has been adapted to death, and even deconstructed it. The attempt (including showing her lonely grave) has no effect on Gem; she only begins to regret her ways [[spoiler: Sabrina gives her a Christmas present.]]
** The second time was more of a straight example. After Sabrina used some of the money she had earned for charity on a doll, it came to life and showed the horrible futures for her friends. Among other things, it ended with a showdown between Sabrina and a WickedWitch Gem. Although this one had nothing to do with Christmas, it does parody the gravestone scene.

!!''Sabrina's Secret Life'' contains examples of:
* AnAesop: The writers clearly have an {{Anvilicious}} attitude towards anorexia.
* ArtEvolution: 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.
** One example of actual evolution was the eyes of the characters. They became more "shiny"
** It was mainly the clothes and hairstyles that changed (similar to ''Disney's {{Doug}}'').
* {{Bishonen}}: Salem's human form.
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: While Gem and Chloe's departures were explained, we still don't know what happened to Pi, Quigley, or the Spooky Jar.
** The original comics featured a story that wrapped up the ''Sabrina: The Animated Series'' versions of the characters being used in the book at the time, and shifted the comic back to its traditional setting. They explained that Quigley had taken a job outside of the country (in Europe?), and so moved away.
* {{Flanderization}}: Harvey started out as a sweet but kinda ditzy guy. He's a full-blown idiot in ''Sabrina's Secret Life''.
* GagHaircut: Not a hair ''cut'' but Cassandra casts a spell to turn Maritza's hair into multi-coloured spikes. She then makes a hand dryer explode on her, singeing the rest of it.
* GRatedDrug: Dreamland in "Living Her Dreams".
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:Cassandra]] near the end of the show.
* LovableAlphaBitch: Cassandra, although she's Gem Stone's replacement.
* PaperThinDisguise: Mr. Snipe's mortal disguise consists of just human clothes. His grotesque features should make him really stand out, but no-one seems to see anything weird about him.
* PutOnABus: Chloe and Gem
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections: Cassandra is Enchantra's niece and occasionally uses this to her advantage.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: Maritza replacing Chloe, who reportedly [[WrittenInAbsence moved away]].
**Actually Maritza used the same basic character design used for Chloe, only with slightly lighter skin color to indicate that Maritza was vaguely Hispanic.
** Also, Cassandra uses a similar character design to Gem. Her character design was also used for the ''Friends Forever'' movie with a different voice called Portia.
* TookALevelInJerkass: Sabrina in between the two shows.
