Driving Is the Only Way to Fly is the twenty-sixth episode of the first season of Bewitched. The episode was completed by February 5, 1965.


Samantha wants to learn how to drive, but after Darrin gets frustrated and testy trying to teach her, they have a fight and he enrolls her in a driving school. Sam is instructed by a new driving instructor and nervous wreck named Harold Harold. Samantha uses her witchcraft to get out of potential accidents, and Harold gets so out-of-control after hearing Endora's voice from the back seat that he runs off screaming. As a result, Harold is fired, but is rehired when Sam loyally states that she will go to another school rather than learn from another instructor.


  • Elizabeth Montgomery was in her first month of pregnancy while filming this episode. This became a storyline for Samantha in the second season.
  • Paul Lynde, who would later play Uncle Arthur, makes his first Bewitched appearance as driving instructor Harold Harold in this episode.
