Cute, but not quite as magical as the original.

Sabrina is a brat--get ready for your daughter to emulate rudeness

I just watched an episode where Sabrina (age 12) has a crush on her ADULT make piano teacher. She says things like "whatEVER! That is SO STUPID!" Nonstop. I am not happy that my seven year old watched this crap.

Cute and fun show that's appropriate for everyone!!

This show is cute and appropriate for all ages! Sabrina is a young witch with a big heart. Any kind of negative behavior is always followed by a concequence and Sabrina always tries to fix it. Along with the help and support of her family she always makes the right choice in the end! Although bland at times, the show has good and positive messages for kids four and up.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (4 ):

Although Sabrina: The Animated Series lacks some of the wit and magic of the original series, it's still a charming, positive show with plots that tweens should be able to relate to. Perhaps because Sabrina is younger, this version serves up more silly, cartoon-inspired humor than the live-action Sabrina. Most episodes feature funny, entertaining storylines in which Sabrina uses her witch powers to help a situation along, only to discover that she's complicated a problem instead of solving it. Inevitably, she realizes that a good, honest heart is more valuable than magic. By following this formula, the show teaches kids lessons about loyalty, acceptance, forgiveness, and more.
