Tabitha Stephens (Tabatha) is the witch daughter of Samantha and Darrin Stephens. Adam is her younger brother.


As a result of her unique heritage, Tabitha started using witchcraft at a young age, including twitching her nose. Samantha and Darrin had their hands full, trying to teach her when and when not to use her talent. She was unusually headstrong and needed extra discipline. Samantha and Darrin often told her, "Mustn't twitch."

Her maternal grandparents, Endora and Maurice, were not happy about their granddaughter being raised as a mortal, but were proud of Tabitha and loved her dearly.

Physical Appearance[]

As a baby, Tabitha had dark black hair. By the time she was a toddler and started manifesting her powers, she had blonde hair like her mother.


Tabitha was conceived in 1965 and Samantha told Darrin she was pregnant several months later when she got confirmation. ("Alias Darrin Stephens") She was born on January 13, 1966. ("And Then There Were Three")

Against both of her parents' wishes, Endora named her Tabatha, but Darrin acquiesced after a harrowing day in the hospital the day she was born.

After a visit to Dr. Koblin for a check up, Tabitha twitched her nose and made her toy pony fly to her. This was the first manifestation of her powers. ("Nobody's Perfect")

Jealous of the attention baby Adam was getting from her mother, Tabitha ran away and twitched Jack out of her "Jack and the Beanstalk" storybook and twitched herself into the book. She visited the Giant's castle and made the hen lay normal eggs (she wanted an omelet), made the magic harp play rock music and shrank the Giant so she could play with him. ("Samantha and the Beanstalk")

In seasons two, three and four, her name was spelled "Tabatha", with an "A" in the second syllable. Beginning in season five, the spelling of her name changed to "Tabitha", with an "I" in the second syllable.


Although they called her "Auntie Serena", Serena is really Tabitha and Adam's first cousin once removed, because she is Samantha's first cousin, not her sister.

Bewitched Sequel[]

In 1976 a spinoff about Tabitha was produced. In the first Tabatha pilot, Tabatha was in love with a mortal man, just like her mother was, but instead of a meddling witch of a mother-in-law, like her grandmama Endora, Tabitha has a meddling warlock brother. Adam popped in and out, trying to convince Tabitha to leave mortals alone and to pursue her life as a witch. This pilot was bought, but before the series was produced, the entire premise was changed.

In the new Tabitha pilot (1977), Adam is a mortal, just like their father, and he tried to convince Tabitha to live a normal, mortal life. A new witch aunt was also added, Aunt Minerva, who disliked Adam's mortal ways and tried to get Tabitha to be more like a witch.
