|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.

Pop over to Crossover Props for a look at Jeannie and June Cleaver also reading Harpies Bizarre ...sort of.
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!

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 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.

Many of the same set elements from the pet shop in 156, "Serena Strikes Again, Part 2" (just rearranged a little), can be seen at Postlewaite's Apothecary shop.
Mrs. Stephens's kitchen is the same set used for the Kravitz's in the later years.
Mrs. Stephens's foyer is the same set used for Miss Parson's (the cat lady of Morning Glory Circle) house and Gretchen Millhouser's house in 133.

The portrait of the figure wearing a hooded cloak that hung in Larry's office for all eight seasons, was also used in his dining room in 59, in Serena's hotel room in 54, and a restaurant alcove in 69.

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."
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 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 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 Desk Lamp
The rooster from the Stephens living room, is sighted in the Kravitz living room, in 222, "Darrin Goes Ape".
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 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.
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 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.
