Samantha's Not So Leaning Tower of Pisa is the fourth episode of the eighth season, and the 232nd episode of Bewitched series. The episode was completed by July 2, 1971.


Samantha and Darrin have moved their European vacation to Pisa, Italy, where Darrin and Larry meet with Pisan, Count Bracini, to discuss how to market his olive oil in the States. Esmeralda, who is sitting with the children while Samantha and Darrin are gone, inadvertently makes her own way to Pisa in even more distress than usual. Pisa is the site of arguably Esmeralda's most high profile goof, the Leaning Tower. She used to date the architect, Bonano Pisano, when he was building the tower.

Esmeralda's distress slowly disappears to the best she has felt about herself in a long time when she meets the count, who sweeps her off her feet. She feels so good about herself that she believes that she can right this most famous wrong of hers by straightening the tower to its true upright position, not realizing that if she does so, it will remove the one attraction that separates Pisa from all other Italian towns in the eyes of tourists.[2]

Esmeralda cannot remember the spell to make the tower lean, so she and Samantha travel back to the past to try to recreate how she did it.
