Archie Comics Wiki
Quote1 "Once upon a time, there were three witches, who lived in the little town of Riverdale. Two aunts, Hilda and Zelda, are choosing the ingredients to create an evil wicked witch. But suddenly, Zelda bumped right into Hilda and accidentally added beautiful girls' stuff as an extra ingredient. Thus, the grooviest teenage witch was born. She has white hair with a pink headband, and blue eyes. She wears a blue dress with a black belt and black shoes. She loves to goof off and battle evil forces using her ultra magical powers. It so happens that she is the first bewitching all-American superhero — Sabrina, the teen-age witch!" Quote2
--The series' opening narration
The Sabrina the Teenage Witch Show

Sabrina the Teenage Witch (titled Sabrina and the Groovie Goolies or The Sabrina Comedy Hour during its first season and promotionally referred to as The Sabrina the Teenage Witch Show or The Sabrina Comedy Show) is an American low-budget animated sitcom television series produced by Filmation that aired on CBS from 1971 to 1974 that aired on CBS during Saturday mornings from 1971 to 1974. The series is also aired in primetime as a syndicated series. Based on Archie Comics' Sabrina the Teenage Witch, it was a spinoff of The Archie Comedy Hour. The series featured new episodes of Sabrina along with the Groovie Goolies. Now for the first time in the series, The Looney Tunes Gang are appeared in the animated series of the show. The series follows a crime-fighting teenaged witch who likes to hang out and fight enemies using her magical powers, without letting her friends at Riverdale High find out.

As depicted in the opening sequence of the series, Sabrina Spellman is created by her aunts, aunts, Hilda and Zelda in an attempt to create the "evil, wicked witch" using a mixture of the magic potions (shown in respective fields of light green, and pink). However, Zelda accidentally bumped Hilda, causing to spilled teen girls' stuff as extra ingredients into the mixture, creating, instead of the "evil wicked witch.
