This is incorrectly stated to be from Everything's Archie #74 but this story does not appear in our index of that issue.

Genre

Synopsis
Meet Sabrina, a sexy teen witch who lives a typical teen-age life -- except that her job is to hex her fellow teens. She introduces us to the rules of witchery: witches can't cry, can't sink when they're in the water, and if they ever fall in love, they lose their powers.
Reprints

Indexer Notes

First appearance of Sabrina, her cat Salem, and Della the Head Witch.

Much of this early version of Sabrina appears to be based on the play "Bell, Book and Candle" and the film version, starring Kim Novak. The rule about witches losing their powers if they fall in love and the inability of witches to cry (both of which were dropped in subsequent versions of Sabrina) were used in "Bell, Book and Candle," and Sabrina's cat Salem is similar to Pyewacket, the witch's familiar in "Bell, Book and Candle."

In the COMICS v10 #5 G. Gladir states that Sabrina was named after a woman he remembered from his teens who he later found out was actually named Sabra not Sabrina. He also states that he wrote all Sabrina and Hilda stories until Sabrina went to Saturday morning animation in 1969.

For the sake of the joke, Jughead's legendary aversion to women is ignored. The girlfriend bears a remarkable resemblance to longtime Archie Comics feature character Suzie, for whom Samm Schwartz was the longtime main artist.

Indexer Notes

On page 4, Betty talks about other boys she's dated since Archie got married, each an Archie clone: Henry Aldrich, Andy Hardy, Richie Cunningham, Zach Morris and Troy Bolton. On page 13, Cheryl takes about her current love life with a talent agent, a baseball player and a famous playwright, all aping the loves of Marilyn Monroe. Fred Mirth is a homage to Fred Mertz, Ethel Mertz' husband from the TV show "I Love Lucy."
