When Bewitched first aired on September 17, 1964, no one imagined it would still be alive today.

Multiple spin-offs hit the airwaves, however, none of the attempts could quite capture what the original could.
While Samantha tried her best to keep her own secrets, the show’s producers weren’t able to keep everything hush-hush. Here are some things you probably didn’t know about Bewitched. See what Tabitha herself has to say about the show!
Elizabeth Montgomery Assumes Multiple Roles in Bewitched
Not only did Elizabeth Montgomery star as the leading witch, the lovable Samantha Stephens, she also played Samantha’s cousin Serena. When given credit for playing the mischievous Serena, beginning in the second season, she used the pseudonym Pandora Spocks. Montgomery raised her voice to make Serena’s character sound differently, but would sometimes slip back into Samantha’s voice on accident. Serena appeared in 25 episodes of Bewitched.
Montgomery’s performance on Bewitched earned her four award nominations for a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series and three nominations for Golden Globe Award for Best Female TV Star.
