American TV audiences fell in love with the classic show ‘Bewitched’ during its eight-season run from 1964 through 1972. Elizabeth Montgomery played the role of ‘Samantha Stephens,’ and she was joined by Marion Lorne, who played the role of ‘Aunt Clara.’
The sweetest moments from Aunt Clara have been assembled into a wonderful montage. In season 1, episode 7, ‘The Witches are Out,’ Samantha asks the other women if Aunt Clara should be at the house by now.
The others tell Samantha they worry whenever Clara leaves the house. They mention how she’s getting more loopy! The doorbell rings, and a disheveled Aunt Clara appears. Samantha asks her what happened, and Clara says she got the spell wrong and landed in the middle of the freeway!
In season 4, episode 17, ‘Samantha’s Da Vinci Dilemma,’ Aunt Clara falls through a tree with a mixing bowl in hand and her cooking gear on! She tells Samantha that she came in from the annual witches’ cookout.
Aunt Clara says, ‘I made my favorite recipe, sautéed willow almond demon. I’m partial to nuts!’ Clara tells Samantha she was disqualified. When Samantha tastes Clara’s dessert, she says, ‘Well, no wonder you got disqualified. This is fudge!’
In season 3, episode 13, ‘My Friend Ben (Part 2),’ Samantha listens through a window and then runs to ask Clara, ‘Did it begin? Harky witches, who live in lamps?’ Clara responds yes, and Darin walks in and asks why there’s a massive crowd of people outside. Samantha tries to calm him down, telling him that Clara remembers the spell, but when she recites it, she babbles the words halfway through it, and Benjamin Franklin appears in the room!
There are plenty more clips from seasons 1, 2, and 3 featuring the fabulous Aunt Clara and her hijinx. The sweetest moments of Aunt Clara are a nostalgic compilation from the show ‘Bewitched.’
