Accepting one's own strengths and weaknesses and feeling comfortable with oneself is a difficult process for any teenager and Sabrina the Teenage Witch
is no exception. In season three, Sabrina (Melissa Joan Hart
) finally earns her witches license, but finds out she can't actually use it until she discovers a hidden family secret. Thus begins a procession of distant relatives from the other realm who offer important clues to Sabrina's family's secret. Along the way Sabrina learns some important lessons about romance, laughing at oneself, self-confidence, the evils of gambling and the power of addiction, superficial versus inner beauty, and the importance of family and telling the truth. Sabrina's witch aunts Hilda (Caroline Rhea) and Zelda (Beth Broderick) and their talking cat Salem (voiced by Nick Bakay) always offer their support and guidance in their own quirky, though sometimes questionable ways while Sabrina's best friend Valerie (Lindsay Sloane) and boyfriend Harvey (Nate Richert) provide the peer support Sabrina needs to mature and thrive in the mortal world.
Add in Sabrina's always scheming school nemesis Libby (Jenna Leigh Green) and her vice-principal turned Aunt Zelda's suitor Mr. Kraft (Martin Mull) for 25 episodes of teenage fun, angst, humor, and drama. Sabrina's family secret is finally revealed in the final episode and it could just be life-changing for the whole family. Especially notable are the Halloween episode "Good Will Haunting" which is packed with guest artists including Gary Owens, Ruth Buzzi, David Madden, Alan Sues, Joanne Worley, Corbin Allred, and Tara Charendoff; the Christmas episode "Christmas Amnesia" in which Sabrina realizes just how much those seemingly silly Christmas traditions really mean to her; the final family reunion episode set in Hawaii, "Silent Movie" which is a parody of the old-time silent movies; and "Sabrina's Real World" which is a tongue-in-cheek salute to modern day reality programs. Other famous guest appearances include N'Sync in "Sabrina and the Pirates," Jerry Springer and Julia Duffy in "Mr. Kraft," Alex Rocco in "Sabrina's Real World," and Michelle Kwan in "Sabrina the Teenage Writer."
