Bewitched was known as Afsoongar. Elisabeth Montgomery and her magic nose were to dazzle Iranian viewers on NIRT. Each Holloween my sister would dress up as Samantha.
Afsoongar tells the story on the mixed marriage of a nose-twitching witch, Samantha Stephens (Montgomery), and her mortal husband, Darrin (originally played by Dick York and later by Dick Sargent). The series, a romantic comedy, shows how true love can endure the most vexing of situations, even between a witch and a human. The series is set in a suburb of New York City, to which Darrin commutes for work.
Samantha’s mother Endora (Agnes Moorehead) loathes mortals, and disapproves of Darrin, as do most of Samantha’s family.The witches and warlocks usually carry out their magic with elaborate gestures and/or spoken spells. Magical exits almost always were done with a wave of the arms, accompanied by the sound of a harp strum. Other musical sound effects highlighting magic included xylophones (for Samantha’s nose twitching and other spells), trumpets, and bells.
