Episode Summary

EDIT
Sabrina has blown her allowance, and Salem has maxed out his credit card over the phone, so they decide to enter a cat show to earn the prize money, but soon find themselves wrapped up in a blackmail scheme to force the judge to throw the competition, and, to avoid being caught, Sabrina has to transform herself into a contestant. Meanwhile, Hilda and Zelda seek out a magical perfume that will make Zelda repulsive to their love-sick mailman Dirk, and Hilda gets shrunk as a punishment for taking free samples in the magical "Full Moon" shop.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • One of the people in the cat show was a parody of James Bond villain Ernst Stavro Blofeld, who has the same type of cat as seen in this episode.

    • Sabrina initially assumes Salem's last name is Spellman, then he corrects her by saying he is "her cat, not [her] pet".

      Shouldn't it be obvious to Sabrina that Salem's last name would be different from hers, considering he is a man-turned-cat?

    • How could Sabrina (in cat form) be proclaimed winner of the competition? After all, she was never officially entered, she could have just been a stray cat.

    • In this episode Bob Gordan compares Sabrina to Diane Sawyer. Sabrina eventually becomes interested in journalism in later episodes.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Harvey: She named her cat Sabrina? Doesn't that get confusing around the house?
      Hilda: It's a pretty confusing place in general.

    • Sabrina is a cat, trapped in a cage.
      Sabrina: Salem, this is awful! If I can't point, I can't change myself back! What was that?
      Salem: What?
      Sabrina: There's something in here with me!
      Salem: What?
      Sabrina: Oh, it's just my tail...

    • Zelda: Available at Full Moon Beauty Supply...
      Hilda: Let's go!
      Zelda: We can't. Full Moon Beauty Supply only opens once a month.
      Hilda: When?
      Zelda: During the full moon...
      Hilda: I knew that!

  • NOTES (2)

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Mr. Gordon: Pushy, like a young Diane Sawyer.

      Diane Sawyer is a television reporter for ABC News and co-anchor of ABC's Good Morning America, along with Robin Roberts.
