  • Endora at her best when she decides to help Tabitha learn to ice skate.

    When Tabitha decides that she wants to do some ice skating, Samantha is perfectly happy for her to do so as long as it is without the assistance of witchcraft. Problems start to occur, however, when it becomes obvious that skating is never going to be one of Tabitha's strong points. In fact, she falls down far more regularly than she stands up.

    Unable to endure her granddaughter not being perfect at something, Endora casts a spell which makes her turn into such a talented skater that it is clear that she is a future olympic champion. Samantha, however, is unimpressed and forces Endora to remove the spell, which makes Tabitha skate just as she did before.

    A delightful little episode with Agnes Moorehead and Elizabeth Montgomery sparring superbly as they fight for control of Tabitha's future as a skater.
