    Funny show. I really enjoy watch this show every day. Great show.
  • Maurice is unhappy and Gladys Kravitz sticks her nose in, as usual!

    5.0
    When Samantha's father, Maurice, gives Darrin the gift of a cigarette lighter, Darrin, rather churlishly, refuses to accept it. Maurice is a nice man for the most part and he is absolutely furious that his son-in-law could be so ungrateful and rude. In retaliation, he turns the stubborn Darrin into a mule which doesn't greatly please Samantha!



    While Samantha is trying to calm down her furious father, Darrin the Mule is taken by a nosy Gladys Kravitz to a local animal shelter which makes life even more difficult for Samantha as she must try to rescue Darrin AND make Maurice turn him into a man again.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • When Darrin (as a mule) is standing in the kitchen doorway, the close-up shots make it look like the fridge is on the left side of him. It should be on the right.

    • When the kitchen door opens, the brick wall shows. The first time, shadows of limbs show on the wall. The second time, the limbs themselves show.

    • When Maurice arrives, there is the usual chest in front of the living room windows. Later it is gone.

  • NOTES (1)

    • The scene of Darrin by the champagne bucket at the beginning and the end of the episode is the same scene. In the episode it is explained that Maurice must recreate the events of when he originally cast the spell to turn Darrin into a mule. However, it was in truth because Dick York collapsed during the filming of the episode and never filmed anything past the opening pre-credits scene. It was the final episode he filmed of Bewitched.
