Product Description

Samantha and Darin Stephens' little girl is all grown up and out on her own in TABITHA, the enchanting spin-off series. Starring Lisa Hartman as a young, single working witch, Tabitha adds a little magic and fun to the lives of her relatives and friends including mortal brother Adam (David Ankrum), guardian witch Aunt Minerva (Karen Morrow) and Paul Thurston (Mel Stewart). Includes the entire 12-episode run plus the rarely seen original pilot episode starring Liberty Williams and Bruce Kimmel as the Stephens siblings.

It seems that this short-lived 1977 spinoff was not so much trying to recapture the magic of Bewitched as it was The Mary Tyler Moore Show. Like Mary, Lisa Hartman's Tabitha was an independent single woman working for a low-rent local television station. Where Mary had a letter "M" hanging on her wall, Tabitha had a "T." Tabitha, however, tried to turn our world on, not with a smile, but with a twitch of her nose. And without the benefit of brilliant writers or an able ensemble, Hartman was just not up to taking a nothing premise and suddenly making it all seem worthwhile. Tabitha, now a witchy woman, works as an assistant at KXLA with her mortified mortal brother, Adam, to whom she promises to "cut down on the nose action" (in the more-interesting unaired pilot included on this two-disc set, Adam is a warlock trying to lure his sister to the dark side). Tabitha is an exercise in diminished returns. Mel Stuart, as the beleaguered station manager, is no Ed Asner; a pre-Spenser Robert Urich, as the obnoxious, egomaniacal talk show host, is no Ted Knight; and Karen Morrow, as Tabitha's meddlesome, troublemaking aunt Minerva, is no Agnes Moorehead.

Not that Tabitha is without its TV Land charms. Reprising their roles from the original series are Sandra Gould and a bearded George Tobias as Gladys and Abner Kravitz in "The Arrival of Nancy," and Bernard Fox as Dr. Bombay in "Tabitha's Party." These episodes also feature welcome appearances by, respectively, Fred Willard as a gold-chain-wearing swinger and Werner "Col. Klink" Klemperer. For undiscriminating couch potatoes, Tabitha, may cast an irresistible guilty pleasure spell. However, fans of the original series will probably feel less bewitched than bothered and bewildered. --Donald Liebenson

Customer Reviews

Tabitha's aunt is interfering, but much nicer than the original Endora (Samantha's mother).
Tony Cesnik
The negatives: The series doesn't follow the "logic" of the original "Bewitched" (for whatever logic the show had in the first place!).
Byron Kolln
After watching the show one more time its cute and even Lisa Hartman is a little skinny she has a beautiful face and eyes.

I agree that this isn't the greatest TV series ever made, but it is a lot of fun. I was excited when I found out it was being released on DVD, and ordered it right away. I am glad that I did, because I am extremely impressed with this release. If you watched the recent airings on TV Land, you'll remember the murky, faded picture quality that almost all of the episodes exhibited. Well, surprisingly Sony has outdone themselves with this release. The episodes look incredible! Sharp, crisp picture quality, with bright, vibrant colors. It looks truly incredible compared to what was shown on TV! Plus, it includes the rarely seen pilot episode with a different cast and location. All of this on 2 single sided discs housed in a standard size DVD "flipper" amaray. I wish that all studios would take notice of the excellent transfer used for this set, and apply it to other TV shows that are released on DVD.

This spinoff series to Bewitched, one of the greatest sitcoms of all times, tries very hard to capture the magic of the original but just misses. It's cute in it's own way and fun to hear the soundeffects from the original series reused as well as some of the characters such as Dr. Bombay (played again by Bernard Fox) and the Kravitzes (played again by Sandra Gould and George Tobias). And who can deny how cute Lisa Hartman as Tabitha is.

The problem though is that the characters don't seem to be fleshed out until the last couple episodes but by then it was too late. And the fact that this show started in 1977 only five years after Bewitched ended makes you wonder how Tabitha grew up so fast.

The video and sound on this DVD release is awesome! Crystal clear and vibrant!

If you're looking for some light fun you should check this out.

I love the show Tabitha, maybe it's not quite as good as Bewitched but it's a cute show with highly entertaining episodes and as for the charsm of Lisa Hartman, well I think she is very pretty and she's pretty darn cute as Tabitha!

I aslo like Robert Urich. The character he played started off kind of dorky but they started to tone him down after several episodes but unforunately it was canceled so soon.

Concededly there was a lot of room for improvement, unfortunately ABC never gave the show a chance to develop further. For a 1970s show, it was par for the course. Lisa Hartman definitely had what it took to carry her own show. And she and the actor who played Adam resembled their TV parents enough to make it seem plausible. "Tabitha" is charming in its own way. And yes, the guest appearances of original characters like the Kravitzes and Dr. Bombay were welcome delights (only wish Ms. Montgomery and Uncle Arthur showed up too). The original pilot included on this DVD is just a dull re-telling of the original Bewitched pilot. Too bad this show wasn't given the opportunity to turn into what could've been another classic.

This is one of the shows that I have very vague memories of watching as a little kid. I was six when the show aired. The only thing I really remembered about it was that Lisa Hartman played Tabitha (which led me to believe for years that she also played Tabitha on "Bewitched" this is not the case). The other thing I remembered about this show was her driving a yellow VW. That's all I could recall of this show. So I rented the DVD set to refresh my memory. The show just isn't that good. It comes off as a very cheap attempt at redoing "Bewitched". On "Bewitched" you believed all the charaters were who they played, you got lost in their reality. That is not the case with this show. You watch the show and you ask yourself, why does Adam have such a problem with his sister doing her thing (witchcraft)? Why does their Aunt Minerva have such disdain for her own nephew? Where did Aunt Minerva come from since everything from the original show led you to believe that Samantha was an only child??? In short you really don't care about these people or what they are doing.

The gimmick of the show was obviously the whole "Bewitched" tie in, however that is ALL it had going for it, and even that wasn't done very well. The overall plot of Tabitha working at a TV station isn't all that interesting. Lisa Hartman and Robert Urich do a good job though, it's just the material they had to work with wasn't that great.

I suppose if you're a huge fan of "Bewitched" or Lisa Hartman (who is still incredibly cute today!) you will pick this up regardless, if you're just a casual fan, you'll do better to skip this altogether, you're not missing anything.

Reading the other reviews here, I think there are a lot of people missing the point of this series. It's pure entertainment, plain and simple. It's not entirely fair to compare it to the original "Bewitched", although there's a temptation to do so. The casting of Lisa Hartman as Tabitha, and David Ankrum as Adam, works because she resembles Elizabeth Montgomery, and he Dick York, enough to make you believe Samantha and Darren could be their parents. Keeping Adam a mortal was the right way to go, since he was mortal on the original show. The unaired pilot made him a warlock, which would have detracted from the show if he had been portrayed that way. It would have been great if the parents had made a guest appearance (Sandra Gould and George Tobias reprising their roles as Gladys and Abner Kravitz was welcome). Robert Urich as an egotistical talk show host worked; he really looked the part. Karen Morrow was also terrific as Aunt Minerva, Tabitha's "guardian witch". Anyway, this is a cute show that deserves a look. Don't judge it entirely as a "Bewitched" spin-off. Take it on its own merit.
