Sabrina Spellman is a pretty 16-year-old novice witch featured on the ABC/WB fantasy comedy SABRINA, THE TEENAGE WITCH (1996-2003).
Sabrina Spellman (Melissa Joan Hart) lives at 133 Collins Road in Westbridge, Massachusetts, with her witch aunts Hilda and Zelda and Salem, a talking black cat named Salem Saberhagen, who was actually a warlock sentenced by the Witches Council for trying to take over the world.
Aunt Zelda, the scientist in the family, is a 500 year-old single college quantum physics professor who hides her secret potions behind a kitchen wall cabinet.
Hilda is single, 620-year-old and plays the violin. She was Salem’s follower and her sentence was to keep him worm-free for the next century.
Her romantic interest included Drell, the head of the Witches Council [they’ve broken up over 32 times] and mortal Willard Kraft, the vice-principal [later principal] of Westbridge High School where Sabrina attended school.
Sabrina’s mother was human archeologist. Her father, Edward is a warlock who lives in an other dimension (Other Realm) where serves in the Foreign Legion.
When Sabrina was born the Witches Council assigned Hilda and Zelda to teach Sabrina witchcraft once she turned 16 years of age.
Upon receiving her first power [levitation] Sabrina learns more about witchcraft aided by a black cauldron [her aunts gift] and “The Discovery of Magic” spell book [a gift from her father which she uses to communicate with him in the Other Realm].
On her 17th birthday Sabrina became a licensed witch after passing numerous test administered by Albert, The Quizmaster (Alimi Ballard), a personal tutor who trains Sabrina to her Witch’s License.
Sabrina’s friends included her love interest Harvey; Jenny, her free-spirited best friend, and her witch cousins Ally and Amanda. She hangouts at the Slicery, a local pizza parlor.
“What’s the matter? I have to be a witch, I have to be a mortal, I have to be a teenager, and I have to be a girl all at the same time. That’s the matter.”
Irma Spellman (Barbara Eden) is the matriarch of the Spellman Family and the great-aunt of Sabrina Spellman. Sabrina’s flamboyant Aunt Vesta (Raquel Welch) lives in an alternate dimension called “Pleasure Dome” where one can fulfill every fantasy. Sabrina’s other witch aunt is Sophia Di Borgheses who lived in Rome c. 1580 (played by Melissa Joan Hart).
Sabrina’s twin, Katrina lives in South Dakota. Zelda and Hilda also own a clock shop called the Hickory Dickory Dock shop. One of their services included taking people back in time via the Lost in Time Clock to correct life mistakes.
When Hilda opened Hilda’s Coffee Shop in Boston, Sabrina went to Adams College and lived off campus in a house [#808] with a group of other students. Adam’s rival is Emerson College. Sabrina becomes an accomplished scuba diver and writes for the school newspaper.
Before her engagement to her mortal boyfriend, Aaron Jacobs, Sabrina quit her job at Scorch magazine to become a freelance writer.
A few months later on April 20, 2003, Sabrina leaves Aaron at the altar when she realizes that her former boyfriend, Harvey was her real soul mate.
As she exits St. Paul’s Church, she sees Harvey leaning on a motorcycle. Ecstatic, Sabrina rushes in to his arms. Together, they drive off to a new life at exactly 12:36PM.
