Endora disapproved of her daughter's decision to marry a mortal, and she sometimes casts spells on Darrin for her own amusement. She refuses to even use Darrin's name, purposely calling him "Durwood," "What's-his-name," "Darwin," "Dum-Dum," etc.., all much to his annoyance. She refers to him as "Darrin" only eight times during the entire series.
Despite her disapproval, Endora loves Samantha and her grandchildren, Tabitha and Adam, more than anything. Endora is the most frequent houseguest and one of the most loyal members of Samantha's family.
The age of Endora is a question that is never answered directly, but on many occasions a reference is made to a time of birth, or to someone from history whom Endora knew.
- She makes reference to having known Diogenes (400 BC)
- She makes reference to having known Julius Caesar.
- She says she cooked for the Roman Emperor, Claudius.
- She makes reference to having known Helen of Troy (1180 BC).
- Maurice says he and Endora knew Atilla the Hun (450 AD).
- Endora says she has changed her mind many times in 3000 years.
- Endora states she dated Otzie the iceman (3500 BC). (This is impossible. Ötzi was discovered in 1991, Bewitched filmed its last episode in 1971-1972, 20 years before the body was found.)
- She made a deal with Carlotta in the Middle Ages for Samantha to marry her son, Juke.
On the Other Hand
- Endora says she went to Shakespeare's plays as a little girl.
- Endora refers to being a child bride when Samantha was born.
- Endora says again she was a child bride. This time she defines it as being in 1670.
- Endora says she was not born at the time of King Henry VIII (1570).
