Tabitha's Party (Tabitha)
About[edit | edit source]
Usually summoned by the incantation: "Calling Dr. Bombay! Calling Dr. Bombay! Emergency! Come right away!", he would appear in outrageous costumes, appropriate to whatever bizarre activity he had been interrupted doing - with or without a nurse assistant.
His antidotes for "witch" diseases sometimes go wrong, and Darrin would call him a "Quack" when that happened. He usually ended his visits by teleporting away during a burst of laughter.
Dr. Bombay apparently served the witch community under the authority of the Witches Council, since Samantha's Aunt Hagatha once threatened to appeal to the Council to have him replaced. His competition was another witch doctor named Dr. Agraphor.
While fond of Samantha, he tends to regard her husband, Darrin, with little more than amused contempt. Occasionally, he plays on Darrin's preconceptions about witches, once declaring, after performing a simple procedure, "I could've worn a black cloak and stirred a steaming cauldron, but you said you were in a hurry!" On another occasion, he ominously demanded Darrin's soul in payment and, in response to Darrin's nervous reaction, said to Samantha: "Bit of a square, isn't he?"
