Hello there my fellow witches and warlocks! Let's dive into some Halloween facts about one of my favorite witches - Sabrina the Teenage Witch!

Just like Riverdale, Sabrina started out as a product of Archie Comics. Created by writer George Gladir and artist Dan DeCarlo, Sabrina first appeared in Archie's Madhouse #22 in October 1962. In 2014, a darker version of the comic, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, was released, that documented Sabrina's "troubled origins." "One day, Sabrina's going to be the most powerful sorceress who's ever lived—Archie's equivalent of Doctor Strange—but right now, she's a 16-year-old girl who's figuring out who she wants to be and if she's going to prom or not," Chilling Adventures writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa said.

Now, we all know Salem wasn't real, but the role was played by 3 cats! After Elvis and Witch passed away, Warlock took over until the end of the show, before going into semi-retirement. Along with those three, there was the puppet Salem, who moved with the aid of three puppeteers. One worked the tail and eyes, one the body, and another the mouth. Nick Bakay, the voice of Salem, sat next to the mouth puppeteer who would match the mouth to what Bakay was saying. Some stuffed animal Salems were used for rehearsals. They were named "Stuffy."

Additionally, Salem was a writer! In addition to voicing Salem, Bakay was credited with penning 12 episodes of the series.

And finally, did you know the show might come back? Melissa Joan Hart recently revealed she has been taking meetings on remaking Clarissa Explains It All and Sabrina, The Teenage Witch. "It’s a meeting ... you know they are throwing around Clarissa and Sabrina ideas," Hart said. "But it depends on who’s going to give up rights, who’s gonna do it, how’s it going to be done. It’s a lot of politics."
