Monday Artday: opposites

Spread the love

Bewitched‘s Samantha Stephens was a typical late-1960’s housewife. She was demure and straight-laced. She had a loving husband, Darrin, a hothead who was incompetent in his job. She had an adorable daughter who followed in her mom’s footsteps and an infant son. Her mother, Endora, who was estranged from her father, disliked Darrin. Oh, and Samantha was a witch.

Samantha had a cousin Serena. Except for her dark hair and heart-shaped birthmark, Serena was Samantha’s identical twin. However, they were total opposites. Serena was a wild, free-spirit hippie with an affinity for psychedelic miniskirts. She kept company with prankster Uncle Arthur and she loved rock and roll music, once teaming with 60’s singers Boyce and Hart. Oh, Serena was a witch, too.

Although popular for eight seasons, Bewitched  met its demise at the hands of a more progressive show – All in The Family. Sadly, Elizabeth Montgomery, the actress who played Samantha, passed away on May 18, 1995. Pandora Spocks, the actress who played Serena, passed away at the exact same time.




  1. Sam was hot in a “stay-at-home-mom-witch” sort of way. Serena was hot in a “let’s get drunk and screw the witch” sort of way. And I’m sorry, but Darrin couldn’t possibly handle either of them. Even after they switched from big ear dorky Darrin to sweater wearing dorky Darrin.

    Love the illustration. Really awesome!
