About This Quiz

Love is bewitching. But for Darren Stephens, it wasn't just love. His entire life that was bewitching once he married Samantha. Just like many of us, Darren wanted a quiet, uncomplicated life. However, every time he came home from work, he was always surprised by the world of witchcraft. Whether it was a mother-in-law stringing him up by his toes, or a warlock offering advice, Darren patiently tried to handle it all. 

As a mere mortal, will you be able to recall the comic situations that Darren found himself in? Or remember the names of his nosy neighbors or high-strung boss (Larry)? Take a twitch and see how many answers appear. 

The characters in "Bewitched" were clever and comical. Do you recall Samatha's cousin Serena, who was also played by Elizabeth Montgomery? Serena liked Darren and was more progressive in her view of morals. How about Aunt Clara, an old, sweet, bumbling and mumbling witch? And lest we forget, the series aired long enough for the Stephens to add baby Tabatha to their family. It's time to stop reminiscing and time to start twitching your finger to choose the correct answers on this quiz. Do it now. 

This one is too easy, but here goes; how does Samantha cast a spell?

Samantha casts a spell with a twitch of her nose. The twitch is accompanied with a sound effect and some visual effects. If you thought you saw her face a lot, you did! Her first pregnancy, which occurred at the beginning of the series, wasn't used as part of the story line, and was covered up by using a lot of close-ups of Montgomery's face.

We all know the character’s Darren and Samantha, but what was this couple’s last name?

The correct answer is Darren and Samantha Stephens. But it wasn't always that, in the original draft of the pilot episode Samantha was originally going to be named Cassandra.

Where is Darren and Samantha’s home located?

Darren and Samantha’s home is located in New York. The Stephens' house still stands on the Warner Brothers Ranch lot in Burbank, California, at Hollywood Way. Originally it stood on the Columbia Ranch that was owned by Columbia Studios, which produced Bewitched (1964). The lot was re-named The Burbank Studios Ranch in 1972, when Columbia Studios moved onto the Warner Brothers lot. In other words, the house never moved only the name of the lot changed.

This one is a bit harder. What is Darren and Samantha’s home address?

Darren and Samantha lived at 1164 Morning Glory Circle. The Bewitched house can be seen down the street from the "I Dream of Jeannie's"house in many outdoor scenes and that house (exterior and interior) doubles as the residence of fellow NASA coworker Doctor Bellows. The studios never let a good house go unused.

Darren commuted to work. So where did he work?

Darren works in a Madison Avenue advertising agency. In his commute to work you may have noticed the other cars. During the first six years, practically every car in sight is a Chevrolet, because the car company was one of the show's original sponsors.

What is the name of the Madison Avenue advertising agency?

The fictional advertising firm "McMann & Tate" is obviously a twist on the famous "McCann" advertising agency of New York. Even though Mr. McMann (of "McMann and Tate") was often referred to, he only appeared in two episodes: Season 4, Episode 32; "Man of the Year": Roland Winters and Season 6, Episode 21; "What Makes Darrin Run?": Leon Ames.

What was the name of the actor who replaced Dick York?

Dick Sargant replaced Dick York when he could no longer work on the show. Agnes Moorehead had a strong working relationship with Dick York, and when he was replaced with Dick Sargent she did not take the decision well. On Sargent's first day on the set (for a script reading), and in front of the entire cast (including Sargent), Moorehead very slowly but firmly stated, 'I don't like change.'

Favorite characters! Agnes Moorehead played the disappointed mother-in-law, what was the character’s name?

Esmeralda disapproves of Samantha’s mixed marriage and frequently interferes in the couple's lives. Darrin usually becomes the victim of a spell, which wreaks havoc with his life. When Dick York was replaced by Dick Sargent the ratings dropped 13 places. We wonder if Agnes Moorhead was secretly pleased.

David White portrayed what high-strung character?

The correct answer is Larry Tate, who is Darren's boss. After the third season, it was often not known if Dick York would be well enough to work any given week, because of his back pain issues.

Irene Vernon until 1966, then Kasey Rogers portrayed the role for the rest of the series .The show had an unusual amount of roles played by more than one person: two Darrins, two Gladys Kravitzes, two Louise Tates, and two of Darrin's father.

Serena, also played by Elizabeth Montgomery, is a witch who tends to be a bit more progressive towards mortals (than the rest of her family) and loves to use her magic any time she wants. However in the cast listing, the role of Serena was listed as being played by Pandora Spocks. Many viewers didn't realize this, and wrote "Pandora" fan mail.

Oh those busy-bee neighbors who don’t mind their own beeswax. What is the name of the characters who played the nosy neighbors?

Gladys Kravitz suspects Samantha is a witch, but can never prove the weird situations she uncovers to her husband, Abner Kravitz. Gladys is usually seen peering through a curtain in the front window of their home. Although Gladys Kravitz was relatively minor character on the show, the role was memorable enough that the term "Gladys Kravitz" entered the American lexicon, and is commonly used as a synonym for a nosy neighbor or colleague.

Samantha offers to change it using witchcraft but Darrin is adamant that she will not do so as he is once again on one of his anti-witchcraft kicks. Stubbornly, Darrin goes out into the storm and changes the tire, arriving at the elegant event looking like a drowned rat and needing to borrow clothes from the host which just happen to be about three sizes too small for him! Endora is angry and upset about the whole thing and hopes that Darrin's unreasonable behavior will make her daughter leave her mortal husband for good but, of course, she doesn't, and when they go out to another formal evening and run out of gas, Darrin doesn't seem to mind a little witchcraft being used to remedy the situation.
