Sabrina: The Animated Series

Show Summary

The show was made in 1999. It is the spin-off to Sabrina, the Teenage Witch, the sitcom. This cartoon was completely different from the show itself. It featured our main character Sabrina except as a 12 year-old in Jr. High School just developing her powers. Her best friends are Chloe Flan and Harvey Dwight Kinkle. Chloe is the only mortal that knows that Sabrina is a witch, and Harvey is still Sabrina's secret crush. Together they have many adventures. Her rival is Gem Stone, the equivalent of Libby Chessler from the original show, and is incredibly rich. She still has the same aunts: Hilda and Zelda Spellman except they are teenagers, and she has an additional household member, Uncle Quigley. In this show even though Sabrina has her magic, she relies on a Spookie Jar to sometimes to help her cast spells. All of these characters help make the show as great as it was. Unfortunately Sabrina, the Teenage Witch was still greater so the show ended with only one season of 65 episodes. Though it has ended, it still is a great addition in Sabrina history and Viacom productions. However it wasn't the end for Sabrina: the show was slightly brought back in Oct. 2002 as a Nickelodeon TV-Movie! Sabrina the Animated Series: Friends Forever. Trivia(Not Goofs) -Did you know that this series was so popular that WB ended up making another spin-off called Sabrina's Secret Life -This series suffered the same fate of many Disney series, with only 65 episodes -Salem appeared in every single episode of this series -Hilda and Zelda are both voiced by Melissa Joan Hart, who played Sabrina in Sabrina: The Teenage Witch -Uncle Quiggley was created for this series, and only appears again in the spin-off Sabrina's Secret Life, but never is even mentioned in Sabrina The Teenage Witch DVD Release There is currently a DVD release in North America and Europe. Each DVD comes with 4 episodes and introductions by Melissa Joan Hart. The titles include: - A Witchmas Carol, that comes with the title episode, along with "Board & Sorcery", "Has Anybody Seen My Quigley", and "The Grandparent Trap". - Witch In Training, that comes with "Shrink To Fit", "Strange New World", "The Importance Of Being Norma", and "Anywhere But Here". - Bat Attack!, that comes with "Nothin' Says Lovin' Like Somethin' From a Coven", "Witchery Science Theater", "The Bat Pack", and "Field Of Screams" - Sabrina's World, that comes with "You Said A Mouse-ful", "Tale Of Two Kitties", "Key To My Heart", and "What Becomes Of The Broken Hearted?" There is also a release by General Mills with the episodes "Witch Switch" and "What Becomes Of The Broken Hearted?" These are no longer commercially available.moreless

  • This show has aged terribly.

    In this incarnation of Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Sabrina is not a teenager, but is instead a 12 year old girl who's still learning magic. This show doesn't just have bad writing, most of the characters are bland and unlikable (with the exception of Uncle Quigley). If Sabrina is supposed to be learning how to use magic properly, why does she still use magic to cheat every so often? That's not learning, that's just bad writing; also, in this universe, witches and humans coexist so where are the other witches still in training? This is the same problem I have with That's So Raven (which was actually a very good show): it establishes its own universe but it doesn't expand upon it. I'm not saying it should be like Harry Potter, I'm saying Sabrina, Zelda, Hilda, and Salem shouldn't be the only magical beings in town; it makes the concept feel small when it was meant to be bigger (like if Who Framed Roger Rabbit only had Roger, Jessica, and Baby Herman as toons). The characters are mostly just archetypes we've seen before; Harvey is into boys stuff, Chloe is Sabrina's friend, and Gem is the snobby skank who does what she wants and doesn't get punished for it and when Sabrina does get back at her, it doesn't feel good. Skanks don't deserve sympathy or pity; they're a bad example to girls everywhere and deserve to be punished when the do something that's clearly wrong. Angelica from Rugrats was a skank at times, but she almost always got in trouble for her misdeeds. I will give the show some credit thought; the animation is very colorful, the voice acting is good and despite being badly executed, the lessons were at least well thought out. I'd recommend you watch an episode for nostalgic reasons, otherwise stick with the sitcom.moreless
  • I remembered this show. Boy oh boy, this show made my childhood! :-)

    When I was little, I remembered that this show was rerunned on Disney Channel. This show was scheduled right next to: The Weekenders, Lloyd in Space and The Proud Family. Such great memories!
  • I liked the other animated show better

    True, this is a good show and all, but the 2003-2004 reboot of the show felt like it did much better than this version as some of the characters designs were unlikable to me and that I really think it did`nt show all the potential it originally had.
  • I love this magical show! Sabrina and Harvey 4ever!

    Sabrina, The Teenage Witch is based from Archie comics, and who would have not remember that? When it was aired on the television, I was thrilled and full of excitement! Of course, as a teenager back then, I got hooked by the Sabrina-Harvey love team and get pissed by that evil Libby all the time! Sabrina also have a black magical cat which is Salem, he is so cute and adorable. My favorite episode is when Sabrina got hypnotized or something but I'm sure she's not in herself and then she keeps pissing everyone, hahaha! All the episodes are so hilarious, gah, I really miss this show that's why I purchased a DVD copy at dvdbooth. com I'm glad to own a copy of it because I'm dying to see this show all over again. Aside from that, the entire episodes are all there with supreme quality! Sabrina, The Teenage Witch is a great show which gives you a good for a laugh every now and then.moreless
  • For super magic, call Sabrina!

    I remember watching this on One Saturday Morning as a kid. I like the live-action series better, but this one's really cute.

    The show is somewhat of an alternate continuity to the live-action show. Sabrina is 12 years old and just developing her powers (unlike the live-action series where she finds out about her powers on her 16th birthday). Salem is exactly like he is in the live-action show, but has more movement (due to him being an animatron in the live-action series). Her aunts, Hilda and Zelda, have been punished and turned into teenagers for 100 years for abusing magic (I can see this from Hilda, but Zelda?). They live with Sabrina's great uncle Quigly (who's a newcomer to the franchise). She still has a crush on Harvey, who in my opinion has more personality than his live-action counterpart (and he's wicked adorable in this series). There are some new characters, too. Chloe, who's Sabrina's best friend (taking the place of Jenny/Valerie), Gem, Sabrina's rival for Harvey's affections, and the meanest girl in school (taking the place of Libby), and Pi, Harvey's friend. The characters taking the place of the live-action characters was due to Viacom not wanting DiC to use them.

    The artwork was great and the animation was pretty good. There were some cheap scenes in a few episodes, but hey, DiC. The theme song was also done by B*Witched, one of my favorite bands! The series was produced by DiC, Hartbreak Films, inc., (Melissa Joan Hart's production company, she produced this show), Savage Studios, inc. (Eeek the Cat), Buena Vista Television (DiC was with Disney at the time), and some minor production help from Jumbo Pictures. Most of the artists and writers came from the Jumbo Pictures shows 101 Dalmatians: The Series, and Doug (Only the writers from Doug, and only the Disney ones).

    There are a few flaws, though. The morals could get annoying depending on the writer, Gem was really annoying, and I wish it was more like the live-action series. The last one is the spin-off, Sabrina's Secret Life, which I already reviewed. It mainly sucked because only DiC produced it, along with Les Studios Tex, a cheap animation studio.
