Sabrina the Teenage Witch originally appeared in the iconic Archie Comics, alongside other notable characters like Archie Andrews, Jughead Jones, Veronica Lodge, Betty Cooper, and Josie and the Pussycats. She made her debut in a 1962 issue of Archie’s Mad House.

Sabrina lived with her witch aunts Zelda and Hilda in a town called Greendale, which is near Archie’s hometown of Riverdale. Initially, her aunts were portrayed as hag-like crones, while Salem was an orange-colored cat and didn’t speak.
