"Sabrina, the Animated Series" (often punctuated "Sabrina: The Animated Series", even in official promotional material) is an American animated television series based on the Archie Comics character Sabrina, the Teenage Witch. It was produced by DiC Entertainment, which was owned by Disney at the time. The cartoon series could also be considered a spin-off of the popular live action series that ran on ABC (also owned by Disney). Later, a television/direct-to-video movie "" and a spin-off series "Sabrina's Secret Life" were produced by DiC, this time without the ownership of Disney.


Most episodes centered on the typical problems of middle school, along with those that stemmed from Sabrina's inexperience with or misuse of witchcraft. Sabrina and best friend Chloe would often use magic (often from the "Spooky Jar" a cookie jar containing a genie-like being—in the family's kitchen) for all sorts of perceived emergencies, ranging from trying to fit into skinny new clothes to turning Sabrina's boyfriend Harvey into a superhero. By the end of each episode, the magic would backfire. Sabrina would learn that using magic usually wasn't the solution to her day-to-day problems.


The series debuted in 1999. The Archie Comics star had already graced the Saturday morning airwaves in the 1970s (courtesy of Filmation), but the popularity of the live-action "Sabrina, the Teenage Witch (TV series)" sitcom in the 1990s formed part of the basis for this spin-off series. Unlike previous versions, Sabrina in this series was depicted as a 12-year-old attending middle school. As in the original comic series, Sabrina lives with her two aunts, Hilda and Zelda Spellman, and Salem Saberhagen, Sabrina's sarcastic cat, all of whom advise Sabrina on the use of her powers (thereby contradicting the live-action show's premise of not having those powers prior to her sixteenth birthday; thus this series is essentially a "retelling" of the story, similar in concept to The New Archies, a previous Archie Comics-based DiC production).

Savage Steve Holland (whose previous credits include producing "Eek! The Cat") was the executive producer of "Sabrina, the Animated Series". As such, the series reflected some of the irreverent style of humor seen on "Eek! The Cat". Celebrity voice cameos in this series included Mr. T and "Weird Al" Yankovic.

Melissa Joan Hart, who starred in the live-action sitcom, acted as producer of this series, but her younger sister, Emily Hart, voiced Sabrina. Melissa instead voiced Sabrina's two aunts, Hilda and Zelda. Salem is voiced by Nick Bakay, who also voiced Salem in the live-action series.

The series ran on UPN and in syndication (on "Disney's One Too" weekday afternoon block) and on ABC (on "Disney's One Saturday Morning" block) for one season with 65 episodes produced. In October 2002, a made-for-television movie based on the series was produced for cable channel Nickelodeon (TV channel). This was soon followed by a follow-up animated series, "Sabrina's Secret Life". The original series at that time began airing on cable channels Disney Channel and Toon Disney, but recently has reverted once again to airing in syndication. During the 2006-2007 television season, the series returned as part of CBS's new "KOL Secret Slumber Party on CBS" and was briefly part of the "KEWLopolis" cartoon lineup.

In Germany, "Sabrina's Secret Life" is simply a third season of "Sabrina, the Animated Series", both under the title "Simsalabim Sabrina". [ [ Simsalabim Sabrina] . " [] . Retrieved on June 2, 2008. ] [ [ Simsalabim Sabrina] . " [] . Retrieved on June 2, 2008. ]

DVD Release

"The Very Best of Sabrina: the Animated Series" by Shout! Factory contains twelve episodes of the cartoon. [] It is currently unknown if the entire series will be released on DVD.

This show has also been released earlier on several other DVDs, including "Witch in Training", "Bat Attack", and the holiday special "A Witchmas Carol" by Animation Station.


An 11 inch Sabrina fashion doll was released by the company Bambola [] . Several other small plastic toys, including a few figurines and a Polly Pocket-esque Sabrina doll were sold in stores while the series was in production. []

Comic Book

While "Sabrina, the Animated Series" was airing, Archie Comics printed a comic spin-off for the show. The first issue was dated January 2000 (meaning it was on-sale in late 1999), and it lasted for 37 issues. In order to tie the plot in with their current "Sabrina" series, it was explained in the first issue that Repulsa the Goblin queen had sent Sabrina back in time to relive her pre-teen years, so that she would be out of the way while Repulsa attempted to conquer Enchantra's realm. In issue 38, the Repulsa plot was resolved, and the comic book switched to chronicling the teenage Sabrina.


* Sabrina Spellman

Voiced by Emily Hart, has a secret: she's a half witch/mortal. She doesn’t become magically empowered until she's sixteen, but it’s possible to borrow spells from her aunts Hilda and Zelda, which she often does. She finds her meddling turns the situation from bad to worse. Her friend Chloe is aware of Sabrina's magic but Harvey Kinkle, another friend and her romantic interest, isn't.

* Harvey Dwight Kinkle

Voiced by Bill Switzer, has a cute and sweet personality, and, of course, is too shy to admit to Sabrina as anything more than his best pal. He is unaware Sabrina is a witch though often sees the results of the magic himself.

* Hilda and Zelda

Voiced by Melissa Joan Hart, while Hilda suggests they bend the rules a little and magic to get ahead, Zelda’s determined to say no right up until the moment she gives up. Hilda is more carefree and reckless than her cautious sister Zelda but although they do butt heads they love each other. In this series and Sabrina's Secret Life, Hilda and Zelda both have the appearance of teenagers, as this was the punishment they received from Enchantra for "abusing magic" in the past.

* Salem

Voiced by Nick Bakay, Sabrina's cat (and probably familiar) with a big attitude. Together they're a potent combination. Salem knows the right buttons to push to talk Sabrina into just about anything and he does it guiltlessly - until he's caught.

* Gemini "Gem" Stone

Voiced by Chantal Strand, is Sabrina's chief rival. She is very wealthy and sees Sabrina as her main competition for Harvey's affection. Stone is this series version of Libby Chessler from the live action series.

* Uncle Quigley

Voiced by Jay Brazeau, is an original character created for this series, Sabrina's maternal great-uncle and the household's adult guardian.

* Chloe Flan

Voiced by Cree Summer, is Sabrina's best friend and is another mortal that knows that Sabrina is a witch-in-training.
