Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Samantha's husband, Darrin Stephens

Answer: Dick York and Dick Sargent

Darrin, an advertising executive, had no idea what he was in for when he married Samantha! He originally insisted that she abandon the practice of witchcraft, but later found it to come in quite handy at times.

The original actor, Dick York, had to leave the show because of a back injury. He was replaced by Dick Sargent in the middle of the 1969 season, with absolutely no comment from any of the characters about the sudden change of appearance.
2. Samantha's daughter, Tabitha Stephens

Answer: Five different youngsters

Tabitha was born in the show's second season, but it was a while before we learned that she had indeed inherited her mother's magical abilities - which led to a number of cutesy storylines once she was old enough to be an active participant in episodes.

In the episode in which Tabitha was born, the infant was portrayed by Cynthia Black. Tamar and Julie Young played the part for the rest of the season. Erin and Dianne Murphy took over for the third season; as they grew to look less alike, Erin took over in the fourth season, and was the only Tabitha from that time on, with the exception of an episode filmed when she had mumps and was replaced by her sister one last time.
3. Samantha's mother, Endora

Answer: Agnes Moorehead

Endora was outraged by her daughter's decision to marry a "mere mortal", and never missed a chance to snub Darrin (whose name she constantly mangled as Derwood, Dumdum, and similar). Many episodes hinge on the conflict between the two, as Endora casts spells on Darrin in an effort to break up the marriage.

This show gave Agnes Moorehead a chance to give a bravura performance of sparkling wit, but she said a number of times that she felt trapped in a trite endeavour. Possibly her earlier film work with Orson Wells (she debuted in 'Citizen Kane', and received an Academy Award nomination for her work in 'The Magnificent Ambersons') gave her some high standards for comparison.
4. Darrin's boss, Larry Tate

Answer: David White

As a partner of McMann and Tate, Larry Tate is regularly shown as being obsessed with profits, and willing to compromise artistic integrity to secure a client. This generally creates a work problem for Darrin, one which is often solved by Samantha (and not always by the use of magic - sometimes she just has to be your average beautiful and talented suburban housewife).

In the episode 'And Something Makes Three', Larry Tate has a son, who is named Jonathan after David White's own son. Following the end of 'Bewitched', David White made a number of guest appearances on such other television shows as 'The Love Boat', 'The Rockford Files' and 'Quincy, ME'.
5. The Stephens's nosy neighbour, Gladys Kravitz

Answer: Alice Pearce and Sandra Gould

Poor Gladys was a regular witness to supernatural acts and events, but the evidence had always disappeared before she could get her husband Abner to come to the window and see them, so he considered her a bit of a crackpot.

Alice Pearce played Gladys (for which she was awarded a posthumous Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series) until her death from ovarian cancer. The role was then taken over by Sandra Gould, who appeared regularly for the rest of the show's run, growing increasingly hysterical over time.
6. Samantha's ditzy Aunt Clara

Answer: Marion Lorne

You could always trust Aunt Clara to get her spells wrong, causing unintentional chaos. Despite her ineptitude, she was well-intentioned, and got along with Darrin better than most of Samantha's relatives. She is the most frequently-seen of Samantha's aunts (and the only one with a consistent actress), but it is not clear whose sister she is, Endora's or Maurice's.

Marion Lorne's appearance in this role from 1964 until her death in 1968 garnered a posthumous Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series (is there an echo around here?). Her personal doorknob collection was turned into an one of Aunt Clara's interests, and items from the collection were used as props on the show.
7. Samantha's magical medico, Dr Bombay

Answer: Bernard Fox

When supernatural illness strikes, it's time for Samantha to call, "Dr. Bombay, calling Dr. Bombay. Emergency, come right away." The flamboyant witch doctor, usually accompanied by a buxom and (for the time) scantily-clad nurse, will show up to provide suitable magical advice. While he only appeared on eighteen episodes, his striking appearance and dreadful jokes made him a memorable figure.

Although he is best remembered as Dr Bombay, Bernard Fox actually made his first appearance on 'Bewitched in an earlier episode ('Disappearing Samantha') in which he played Osgood Rightmire, a speaker who declares that witches do not exist. After Samantha plays some tricks to prove him wrong, he accidentally casts a spell that makes Samantha disappear and reappear uncontrollably.
8. Samantha's cousin, Serena

Answer: Elizabeth Montgomery

Serena, who appears to be Uncle Arthur's daughter, is Samantha's identical twin cousin. (I know, 'The Patty Duke Show' used that idea earlier.) Because some stories called for them to be mistaken for each other, they were both played by Elizabeth Montgomery, although the credits attributed the acting to Pandora Spocks in most appearances. Serena is one of the few relatives who actually encourages Samantha's involvement with a human, although she wishes both of them were a little less square.

Elizabeth Montgomery made her first television appearance on her father's show, 'Robert Montgomery Presents' in 1951. The list of shows in which she appeared in at least one episode reads like a Who's Who of television of the era, but it was the role of Samantha Stephens that made her a star. She was nominated for an Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series five times (1966-1970), and for a Golden Globe Award for Best TV Star (Female) in 1965, 1967 and 1969.
9. A nervous witch who occasionally assisted the Stephens family, Esmerelda

Answer: Alice Ghostley

Esmerelda was introduced into the series after the death of Marion Lorne, to provide a new humorous witch character. While Aunt Clara was suggested to have failing powers due to her age, Esmerelda was just plain incompetent, not to mention painfully shy. Her awareness of this made her constantly tense and anxious whenever she was required to act as housekeeper and/or babysitter for the Stephens family. Of course, her nervousness just made it harder for her to get things right.

Alice Ghostley had previously turned down an offer to replace Alice Pearce as Gladys Kravitz. She had no interest in being a replacement for a loved character, and took pains to make her character as different from Clara as she could.
10. Samantha's Uncle Arthur

Answer: Paul Lynde

Endora's brother was Samantha's favorite relative, beautifully overplayed by Paul Lynde. Despite the fact that he played many pranks on Darrin, he seemed to bear him no ill will - he just loved tricks and the impact they made.

Like Bernard Fox, Paul Lynde's first appearance on the show was not as the character for whom he will be forever remembered. In the first season he played Harold Harold, a nervous driving instructor trying to teach Samantha to drive in the episode 'Driving is the Only Way to Fly'.
