Red Light, Green Light is the twenty-third episode of the first season of Bewitched. The episode was completed by December 31, 1964.


Morning Glory Circle badly needs a traffic signal on their street. While everyone tries to convince Town Hall to put up a traffic light, Endora tries her best by collecting every traffic signal possible. The Mayor decides that no traffic light is needed, but when Samantha magically ties him up in traffic, he changes his mind.


  • This is one of only two appearances in which Darrin's "best friend" Dave has a substantial role in an episode - as a local councilman. The other appearance is in And Then There Were Three. In all other appearances, he is used in short gag scenes at bars where Darrin explicitly talks about his troubles with Sam and witchcraft while Dave is in too much of a hurry to listen closely.
  • Abner says there is a missile plant near Morning Glory Circle.
  • The Morning Glory News is mentioned.
  • The title alludes to a children's game of the same name.
