    Sabrina Spellman
Voiced by: Emily Hart (The Animated Series) / Britt McKillip (Secret Life)

  • Alliterative Name: Sabrina Spellman.
  • Badass Adorable: Cute blonde teen girl, powerful witch with magical powers.
  • Balloon Belly: In the final episode of The Animated Series, after eating enough garlic to fill an entire room.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Slightly in The Animated Series as her outfit doesn't show her belly button and more so in Secret Life where it does.
  • Blond, Brunette, Redhead: The Blond to Hilda's Brunette and Zelda's Redhead.
  • Cool Loser: She and Chloe are only "losers" because that's what Gem considers them.
  • Cute Witch: She's petite teenager witch, blond, pretty and usually a Nice Girl.
  • Genki Girl: Very bubbly, cute and outgoing and pretty much the poster child of the Plucky Genki Girl.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: A Nice Girl with long blonde hair.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Chloe
  • Idiot Heroine: Not dumb in the conventional sense, just careless enough to not get an injection that she knew she would need, give her worst enemy the job of serving food at her halloween party, switching lives with said enemy and granting her witch powers, giving witch cake to mortals....she pulls through in the end though. It gets worse in Sabrina's Secret Life.

    Salem Saberhagen
Voiced by: Nick Bakay (The Animated Series) / Maurice LaMarche (Secret Life)

  • Cats Are Magic: He was originally a warlock, but was transformed into a cat as punishment for trying to take over the world.
  • Cats Are Mean: Subverted. He wasn't originally a cat, but when he tried taking over the world, he had to become a cat for 100 years as punishment.
  • Cats Are Snarkers: A perfect example of the trope though we don't know if he was already snarky before becoming a cat.

    Hilda Spellman
Voiced by: Melissa Joan Hart (The Animated Series) / Moneca Stori (Secret Life)

  • Graceful Ladies Like Purple: She is the more feminine and fashionable of the two aunts and has a purple dress as her default outfit.
  • Hot Witch: She is very attractive and wears often a mini-dress. Mostly because, due to abusing magic, she and Zelda are stuck in teenage bodies for 100 years.
  • Meaningful Name: Spellman.

    Zelda Spellman
Voiced by: Melissa Joan Hart (The Animated Series) / Tina Bush (Secret Life)

    Uncle Quigley 
Voiced by: Jay Brazeau

  • Canon Foreigner: He only appears in the 1999 series. He was added in because with Hilda and Zelda as teenagers, there was no adult guardian living in the house.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: He disappears in Sabrina's Secret Life with no explanation. However, one could guess that he left because by then, Hilda and Zelda were legally adults at that point, and didn't serve a purpose anymore.
  • Only Sane Man: The only family member with common sense.

    Harvey Kinkle
Voiced by: Bill Switzer (The Animated Series) / Michael Monroe Heyward (Secret Life)

  • Absentee Actor: Doesn't appear in the Made-for-TV Movie, Sabrina: Friends Forever.
  • Adorkable: Unlike the live-action sitcom where he was a popular jock, here Harvey is a cute but nerdy weirdo… who has girls fighting over him anyway.
  • Agent Mulder: He has a strong interest in aliens and general tabloid weirdness. But he never suspects his best friend might be a witch.
  • Big Brother Instinct: Towards Pi, who is physically weaker than him.
  • Character Exaggeration: In the 1999 series, he was a slightly ditzy boy with a big heart. Sabrina's Secret Life made him into a complete idiot.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Can be this at times in the 1999 series, but becomes a full one in Sabrina's Secret Life.
  • The Cutie: Rare male example. Harvey has a cute and sweet personality.
  • The Ditz: He's slightly dense and oblivious.
  • Nice Guy: The nicest guy in the whole cast.
  • Scaled Up: During "Harvzilla", his overuse of Sabrina's "lucky cologne" turned him into a giant dragon.
  • Temporary Bulk Change: 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 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 Scaled Up, he was returned to normal.

    Chloe Flan
Voiced by: Cree Summer

  • Badass Adorable: She's not afraid to go along with Sabrina's magic and she will stick it out until the end. She even stood up to Gem in the halloween episode.
  • Black Best Friend: Of Sabrina.
  • Canon Foreigner: She was created especially for the 1999 series. This could be because Viacom didn't want DiC Entertainment to use any of the characters that only appeared in the 1996 live action show.
  • Cool Loser: She and Sabrina are only "losers" because that's what Gem considers them.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Sabrina
  • Nice Girl: She doesn't have many mean moments.
  • Not So Above It All: Maturity aside, she has a lot of fun messing with magic along with Sabrina and can get hung up on trends and popularity almost as much as her friend
  • Put on a Bus: In Sabrina's Secret Life, she apparently "moved away".
  • Secret Keeper: She is the only mortal other than Uncle Quigley who knows that Sabrina is a witch.
  • Team Mom: The most mature and down to earth of Sabrina's friends. She tries to keep the peace and has a maternal, nurturing side to her ("Nothin' says lovin' like somethin' from a coven" and "Strange new world" confirm this)
  • True Blue Femininity: Although her shade of blue is aqua blue.

    Perry "Pi" McDonald
Voiced by: Chantal Strand

  • Agent Mulder: How he hasn't figured out Sabrina's secret yet is a complete mystery since he's actually looking for the paranormal
  • Always Someone Better: He felt this way towards Tom in "Strange New World" and he did NOT like sharing the spotlight.
  • Ambiguously Gay: He might have a crush on Harvey. Helps that he is prone to get jealous or angry whenever their relationship is threatened
  • Asian and Nerdy: He's Chinese and the smartest person in the cast besides Zelda
  • Bad Liar: Happens whenever he's upset or guilty. Such as in Truth or Scare or Strange new world. He stammers uncontrollably and says utter nonsense until just giving up and coming clean..
  • Beware the Nice Ones: He's normally the definition of chill and is one of the hardest people ever to annoy. Just don't push him too far.
  • Canon Foreigner: Only appeared in the 1999 series.
  • Catchphrase: "Mi amigo" and "Chyeah." The latter probably means "Yes"
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: In Sabrina's Secret Life, he's gone with no explanation.
  • Class Representative: Class president since Wag the Witch. He's never seen performing any duties since though
  • Cloudcuckoolander: He's weird and obsessed with the paranormal.
  • Dude Looks Like a Lady: And a pretty one at that.
  • Eye-Obscuring Hat: He wears a fedora that covers his eyes.
  • Genius Ditz: Sabrina even described him as "totally smart and really out of it at the same time".
  • Nice Guy: A really relaxed and friendly person.
  • Nice Hat: Always has a pork pie hat.
  • Nightmare Fuel Station Attendant: He has his moments. "Witchitis" is a good example also the big Paranormal speach "Paranormal Pi" there are other times as well.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: His real name is never mentioned. Not even once.
  • Punny Name: Pi is a mathematical term and Pi himself appears to enjoy math as he speaks about equations in "Paranormal Pi". It could possibly also be a pun on the phrase P.I (private eye) considering his outfit resembles a classic private eye/spy getup.
  • Shorter Means Smarter: He's the smallest of Sabrina's human friends and arguably the second shortest in the whole human pre-teen cast (beaten only by Bernard). He is also a nerdy genius.
  • Surfer Dude: well sounds like one at least.
  • Totally Radical: Oh, yes.

    Spooky Jar 
Voiced by: David Sobolov

  • Trickster Mentor: He comes off as evil and scary but always left a loophole in whatever Sabrina wished for so she could find a way to fix it when it (inevitably) goes wrong. Though he's tired of constantly being asked.

    Gemini "Gem" Stone
Voiced by: Chantal Strand

  • Alpha Bitch: She's snobby, arrogant, bossy and vile, which contrast with Sabrina's personality.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: "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.
  • Between My Legs: In "Nothin' Says Lovin' Like Somethin' from a Coven".
  • Canon Foreigner: Made especially for the 1999 series. Again with Viacom probably not wanting DiC Entertainment to use Libby (DiC Entertainment only used their characters and the characters already from the comics).
  • Even Evil Has Standards: "When in Rome" reveals that even Gem would never intentionally kill someone.
  • Expy: Canon Foreigner aside, she is pretty much the animated version of Libby from the live action show.(Libby herself is an Expy to Katy from the pilot movie and Rosalind from the comic book).
  • Freudian Excuse: As revealed in the episode "Witch Switch," most of her nastiness could be a result of some seriously demanding parents.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: Nobody likes her. Not even her parents. Her 'friends' are only her friends because she pays them to be.
  • Give Geeks a Chance: Harvey isn't exactly the coolest guy around, yet Gem has an all too transparent crush on him. Though perhaps only to make Sabrina jealous.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: She and Sabrina compete in everything, mostly for Harvey's love, as both have a huge crush of him: However, Harvey prefers Sabrina.
  • Hidden Heart of Gold: Rarely shows, but it's there.
  • Light Feminine and Dark Feminine: The snobby, conceited Dark Feminine to Sabrina's sweet Light Feminine. Gem is also dark-haired in contrast to Sabrina's Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold.
  • Lonely Rich Kid: Heavily implied when Sabrina swapped lives with her. While living the rich life, Sabrina's new parents don't pay any attention to her and she's swarmed by tutors all day.
  • Meaningful Name: Gemstones symbolize wealth.
  • Put on a Bus: In Sabrina's Secret Life, she left for boarding school.
  • Rich Bitch: Paid fellow students to do everything for her (even be her friends) and seemed to be unable to understand that they only tolerated her for her money (even in the Christmas Carol episode where she was shown even her parents hated being around her and her nanny screaming in glee that she was finally free when Gem died).
  • Rich in Dollars, Poor in Sense: Revealed in one episode, where her family are no longer rich. Even "no more money" is difficult for her to comprehend.

    Tim the Witch Smeller 
Voiced by: Bob Bergen


Voiced by: Jane Mortifee

  • Evil Brit: She takes joy in keeping Hilda and Zelda as teens and has a British accent (however, it's not very heavy). Note that it is gone in Secret Life and Secrets of a Teenage Witch, where she sounds American.
  • "Freaky Friday" Flip: With Sabrina in one episode.
  • Punny Name: A play on "enchantes".

  • Nice Hat: Wears a green beret following his Spooky Jar curse.
