I love this show. Any of the creepy characters can't be taken seriously, so kids shouldn't have nightmares from this.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (1 ):

This cartoon, which originally aired from 2003-2004, follows both its animated predecessor and the popular original series, Sabrina, The Teenage Witch, and it blends returning and new characters with ease. It's hardly a commentary on real teen life, but for its intended audience of kids, it touches on real issues like jealousy, social uncertainty, and shirking responsibility in a respectable way and offers some feel-good lessons about each episode's theme.

Sabrina and Cassandra's contentious relationship leads to some malicious behavior (at times both girls lie and cheat to upstage the other, especially when Harvey's around), but Sabrina usually learns from her mistakes and eventually takes the high moral ground, making her a viable role model. She's also good at knowing when her magical mishaps require professional help and turns to the authority figures in her life when she's in trouble, even though she usually faces a consequence of some kind.
