The hit ’60s show Bewitched was all about a cute young witch-turned-housewife played by Elizabeth Montgomery. Samantha Stephens wanted a normal marriage to her husband, but her life as a witch kept getting in the way. And the concept of leading two lives would leak out into the real world, as Montgomery struggled with her career and her childhood.

Bewitched was considered a very wholesome show, though its premise probably wouldn’t fly today. Samantha’s husband, Darrin, wanted her to be a typical housewife, even though she possessed tremendous power. Whenever she used her magic, it was usually in secret and sometimes to quietly help her husband’s career.
