Sabrina made her first appearance in the ARCHIE'S MADHOUSE comic series and gained a fair amount of popularity, eventually spawning her own comic book. Filmation brought Sabrina to animation in the prime-time special ARCHIE AND HIS NEW PALS, and eventually spun off her own series after showcasing her as part of THE ARCHIE COMEDY HOUR. The resulting cartoons depict Sabrina as a resident of Riverdale and a student at Riverdale High, accompanied in her adventures by her boyfriend Harvey and her friends Spencer and Ophelia (who respectively serve Jughead and Betty functions to Harvey's Archie).
However, as our title says, Sabrina IS a witch, and therefore must keep her magical abilities a secret from the Riverdale denizens. Though witches are expected to hex people, the good-natured Sabrina often uses her powers in attempts to help others or solve problems, usually with disastrous results. Most of the plots revolve around Sabrina's attempts to juggle her witchly studies and her teenage life, featuring her magical cat Salem and her two aunts, the cantankerous Hilda and the kindhearted Zelda. There is also Cousin Ambrose, a sophisticated, somewhat bon-vivant warlock who is more sympathetic to Sabrina's teenhood and occasionally aids her in her adventures, serving as a mixture of the Dr. Bombay and Uncle Arthur characters from BEWITCHED. The ARCHIES crew makes regular appearances, with Reggie continuously (and unsuccessfully) trying to out Sabrina as a witch to the rest of the gang.
And of course, there are the GROOVIE GOOLIES. Yep, this set not only has all of the Sabrina episodes from her own series, but ALSO the episodes in which everyone's favorite gang of maladroit monsters made their FIRST appearances. Mixing the Goolies, the Archies and Sabrina together creates a special blend of comic chaos, and these episodes do not disappoint. As a special feature, the set includes the first episode of THE ARCHIE AND SABRINA SURPRISE PACKAGE, in which Archie, Sabrina and the gang work together to solve a mystery at Riverdale. (Will this series be a future DVD release? Only time will tell.)
The set is colorfully packaged, though not in a clear slipcase like the other ARCHIES releases, and the artwork is of the usual excellent standard. The episodes appear to be sourced from the best materials, showing clear pictures and few signs of aging. The DVD holder is a bit difficult to operate at first (the first two discs are overlapped, placing the click-tabs on the sides rather than in the middle), so examine carefully rather than tear into it.
Pick up this set if you're an ARCHIES or SABRINA fan, and pair it with the GROOVIE GOOLIES set for the right mix of supernatural Saturday-Morning silliness. You'll see her tug her ear... and you'll see your blues disappear. Count on it.
For those of with young children who are exposed to computer created animation, introduce them to this wonderful cartoon series and its characters. They will love it.
About the same time, when Filmation was searching for new shows to air, Dan DeCarlo suggested Sabrina, who not only guest starred on Archie's Funhouse, but also on the Groovie Ghoolies as well.
The interesting thing about the original series was, it was sort of a combination between 'Bewitched' and 'Wendy the Good Little Witch.' Basically, Sabrina not only had to conceal her identity (odd since both Aunt Hilda and Zelda remained in their witchly attire, while Sabrina did not), but had to deal with the fact, as a witch, she wasn't supposed to perform good deeds. Harvey was Sabrina's mortal boyfriend, which Aunt Hilda wasn't too particularly fond off, same way Endora felt about Darrin.
The stories usually dealt with witchly aspects colliding with the normal situations, and ironically Archie and the Gang would also get embroiled in the antics, since here, Sabrina actually attended Riverdale High as well.
Overall, this collection has well been worth the wait and hopefully will bring back lots of fun memories of how Sabrina really was to both fans new and old.
