Darrin wants to live a normal, unmagical life and Samantha makes an honest attempt at hiding her powers from the outside world.

However her family of witches and warlocks are constantly meddling in her affairs including her mother Endora played by Citizen Kane actress Agnes Moorehead.

Dick York played Darrin for the first few seasons but he left in 1969 to deal with health problems related to a back injury and was replaced by Dick Sargent. 

Erin began appearing on the show as Darrin and Samantha’s daughter Tabitha in 1966 and remained on the program until it ended in 1974.

As seen on the show: Erin told Studio 10 that Elizabeth 'was like a mom' to her 'and we were close off the set and I loved her very much'

She and her twin sister Diane were jointly cast as Tabitha in order to comply with child labor laws limiting how many hours each girl could be put to work.

However as Erin pointed out to Studio 10 she and Diane were fraternal twins and ‘As soon as they hired us they realized that we really don’t look that much alike.’ 

Erin explained that ‘they ended up showing my sister from the back or from a distance and then after the first year I took over.’

She also gushed that Elizabeth, who died aged 62 in 1995 after a cancer battle, ‘was like a mom’ to her ‘and we were close off the set and I loved her very much.’

However her ‘favorite’ co-star was Agnes Moorehead who ‘was very, very much like a grandma to me and I just thought she was beautiful and colorful and fun. And her favorite color was purple and everything in her dressing room was purple.’

Later in the 1970s there was a short-lived spin-off series called Tabitha where the character was played as an adult by Lisa Hartman.
