Welcome to Retro Rewind, the TGJ original feature carved out to take our readers on a journey back to TV and Film’s glorious past.
Before Disney made stars out of Demi Lovato, Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez, the actress Melissa Joan Hart stood tall as one of television’s most sought after players.
Following her successful run on Nickelodeon’s ‘Clarissa Explains It All‘, the thespian was called on to lead a TV movie named ‘Sabrina the Teenage Witch.’
Produced by Viacom, the ‘Bewitched’-inspired series told the tale of a girl named Sabrina who learns that she is a witch on her sixteen birthday and moves in with her aunts and their talking cat Salem who guide her as she juggles school, romance and all the weird and wonderful of magic has to throw at her.
Its run came to an end of April 24th 2003, but not before pulling in ratings that made it one of the highest-rated shows in television (its premiere picked up 17 million viewers) and cement itself in the memories of many a 90s baby.
