Bewitched was famous for recycling actors by bringing them back to the show as different characters, as illustrated in The Face Is Familiar. However, they also recycled the costumes and props used on the show. Below is a list of some of the stage props that were spotted more than once on the show.

 

One of the most frequently used props is the Harpies Bizarre magazine. Endora, Serena, and Aunt Hagatha were all seen reading the magazine on Bewitched in episodes 2, 3, 82, 129, 229, 247, 253. Itís interesting to note that in each episode the magazine was seen, it had the same cover. NOTE: There is a cosmic coincidence in the fact that this prop appeared in the second and the second to the last episodes of Bewitched.

A children's illustration that was primarily seen in Tabitha's room, was also displayed above another child's bed in 27.

The fountain in the park, often seen on Bewitched, is seen in several other movies and TV shows, like The Monkees, The Flying Nun, Friends, Lois & Clark, West Wing and Birds of Prey.

The funny looking little clown that Phyllis gave to Tabitha in 58, "The Dancing Bear," is also seen in Ho Ho's hope chest in 92, "Ho Ho the Clown." It's only seen for a split second when a trunk opens. In a related blooper, the clown is also seen in Tabitha's room in 55, before Phyllis gave it to her!

An ornate hookah, or hubble-bubble smoking pipe, was used by Endora in 69, 71, and 154 and Dr. Bombay in 107. The Old Man of the Mountain smoked a larger hookah in 217.

The tea service seen in the movie Bell Book & Candle, starring Kim Novak as a witch, as well as in several episodes of Bewitched, usually during formal gatherings. One place of note is in Dick York's final episode, 170, "Samantha and Darrin in Mexico City," at the banquet.

The "Spooky Chair" makes an appearance 86, "Sam's Spooky Chair," and again in 108, "Long Live The Queen."

The set for the Stephens's master bedroom was also used for the guest bedroom and Tabitha's bedroom (after Adam was born and she moved out of the nursery).

The set for the Stephens's den doubles as the Tate's den in 91, "Sam in the Moon," and is very similar to the nursery (painted pink for Tabitha and blue for Adam) from this vantage point. This set was also used for the nursery, which explains the pink walls in Larry's den. According to Adam (of www.1164.com), the paneling for Darrin's den is placed on top of the walls for filming. In one scene, the fake wall outside the door (covering the hallway entrance to the kitchen) was not pushed over far enough, and you can make out the hall closet door.

Larry and Louise seem to inhabit the same bedroom as Darrin and Samantha.

Gladys and Abner Kravitz's living room is the same set as the master bedroom of the neighbors at 1164 Morning Glory Circle. Note how the dormer windows were converted into bookcases.

Endora's fantastically gaudy earrings appeared in 98, "Art for Sam's Sake" and again in 139, "Man of the Year."

Endora's "Follow Me" bouncing ball is seen in 77, 95, 165 and 199. The ball is also used as a crystal ball on the coffee table in 77, and as a split-second transition effect in 87.

The traffic light Sam used to delay their arrival at the ballgame in 6, "Little Pitchers Have Big Fears," reappears in the Stephens living room, courtesy Endora, in 23, "Red Light, Green Light." Then pops up again in 61, "The Horses Mouth" and 146, "Mirror, Mirror on the Wall."

Traffic Light in 6, 23 and 61

 

The egg-shaped vase, seen in "Miss Jasmine's" hotel suite in 11, "It Takes One to Know One," reappears at the Tate's residence in 64, "Double Split," and again in Charlie Leach's apartment, in 67, "Follow That Witch, Part 2." It's interesting to note how inconsistent Dynacs was in choosing palettes when they did the vase in the colorized episodes.

The Egg-Shaped Vase in 64 and 67

 

The "Truth God" from 50, "Speak The Truth," is seen being dusted by Samantha, in 72, "What Every Young Man Should Know." Does Darrin know she kept the little tattletale around?

The "Truth God" in 50 and 72

 

The picture, seen here in 140, "Splitsville," frequently makes the leap from living room to bedroom, and even all the way to Salem, as in 204, "Samantha's Hot Bedwarmer".

The plane that Dick York's Darrin took in 9, "Witch or Wife," was also flown by Dick Sargent's Darrin (with the seats reupholstered), in 203, "The Salem Saga." In both instances, Samantha and Endora were seen outside the craft.

The Plane from 9 and 203

 

The giant's "Golden Harp"from 171, "Samantha and the Beanstalk" is the same as the harp seen in the background in 236, "TV or Not TV."

The desk lamp, usually seen in Darrin's den, is spied in Larry's cabin in 52, "The Magic Cabin," Darrin and Samantha's Salem suite in 204, "Samantha's Hot Bedwarmer," and again in the office of Tabitha's ice skating coach, Billy Blades Bookholtzer, in 246, "Samantha On Thin Ice."

The set that was used as the Tower of London in 229 and 230, "How Not to Lose Your Head to King Henry VIII, parts 1 & 2," was the same as that used for the museum in Rome, Italy in 233, "Bewitched, Bothered, and Baldoni." Then we see the set yet again as Witscit Castle in 235, "The Ghost Who Made a Specter of Himself."

The Set from 229 and 233

 

The same photo of Samantha that Serena gives to Darrin in 142, "Samantha Goes South for a Spell,"to help locate Samantha in the past, is also seen hanging on Juke's cloud in 144, "Darrin Gone and Forgotten."

The sofa, first seen in Larry's cabin in 52, "The Magic Cabin," makes a stop in the Kravitz living room in 66, "Follow That Witch, Part 1," before crossing the street and taking up permanent residence in the Stephens household, where it is seen in many color episodes.

The prop department is often seen recycling copy in their newspapers. Here's examples from 62, "Baby’s First Paragraph" and 117, "To Trick or Treat or Not to Trick or Treat," and even The Brady Bunch and The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet.

The stereo console from the Stephens household, seen in 31, "That Was My Wife," as well as other episodes, is spotted again after Samantha spruces up Larry's cabin in 52, "The Magic Cabin."

Until now, we've resisted adding the horse statue that often appears in Darrin and Larry's offices, since it made sense that McMann & Tate property would move around the firm as offices were redecorated, and usually restrict prop crossovers to Bewitched and I Dream of Jeannie, but it seems that the horse just keeps popping up. It's seen here in Bell, Book and Candle (1958), Bewitched (1964-1972), The Brady Bunch (1969-1974), and A Very Brady Sequel (1996). Could it be a famous statue that was a hot reproduction back then, and not really the same horse circulating around?

 

The yellow cellophane wrapped champagne bottle sent to the Tates by Darrin and Samantha in 105, "Bewitched, Bothered, and Infuriated," is seen again being given to Louise by Larry in 109, "Toys in Babeland." Shame on you, Larry, for regifting Louise her own anniversary present!

The silver sofa was reused heavily from seasons 2-7. This includes 60, Aubert's hotel room (Note:  Dynacs incorrectly colored this orange); 64, The Tate's living room; 73, The Stephen's living room; 101, Terri Warbel's apartment; 113, Mary Jane Nilesmunster's hotel room (Note: this set was also used as the Tate's living room in 109); 135, The Tate's living room ; 221, The Tate's living room.

The painting of a nobleman was used in the foyer of the 1164 set in #s 80 and 81, replacing the Girl with a Broom painting.  This same painting was also tucked away in the dining area of the villa set used in episode 233.

The toy pony, seen at the Stephens' in 74, "Prodigy," is seen again in 75, "Nobody's Perfect," both at the house and at Diego's photo studio.
