Tabitha's Weighty Problem is the second episode of the first and only season of the Tabitha television series.


Tabitha has a cold and when she sneezes, she magically manifests the last thing she says. Her witchcraft is also on the fritz. Her station is doing the on-site reporting for a weightlifting tournament for ABC Wide World of Sports and Tabitha gets to be escort for an amorous Russian weightlifter, Vasily Kasiroff. When Tabitha says that she will flatten him after another advance, she sneezes. He is flattened and becomes trapped in a poster. Dr. Bombay shows up and diagnoses her with an allergy. Tabitha is cured. The Russian returns and wins the contest.




  • The weightlifting tournament aired on the ABC Wide World of Sports. Both Tabitha and Bewitched originally aired on ABC.
  • In Bewitched, magical mishaps always occurred whenever Esmeralda sneezed.


  • The actor playing the Russian weightlifter Tovarich, who talks to Paul about the weights he is lifting, is uncredited.


  • The Volga Boatman's Song is heard in the soundtrack as Vasily is leaving Tabitha's apartment.
