Bewitched

Samantha for the Defense - S3-E14

Factual error: Benjamin Franklin is portrayed as a gentleman in this episode and the previous My Friend Ben episode. In this episode he dates Aunt Clara at the end. In reality, Benjamin Franklin was a cad, a womanizer and a playboy. He was a marvellous man - a genius - but treated women terribly refusing to marry his common law wife, abandoning her for years while he played with other women in Europe... and treated his daughter like a second class citizen.

How Green Was My Grass - S4-E24

Continuity mistake: Before this episode (and after as well) Darrin and Samantha give their address as 1164 Morning Glory Circle, however in this episode, when Darrin slams the door, the '9' in 192 on their address spins around to make 162, hence the angry neighbor at 162 saying that his grass was installed at the Stevens' by mistake.

Samantha: Try to control your temper. Remember, "Peace on earth, goodwill to men" includes witches.

Trivia: The Screen Gems sets of Bewitched and I Dream of Jeannie were right next to each other at the studio, and many of the actual sets and props were shared between the two shows. Both shows also shared Dick Albain, the Special Effects expert, who worked on the two shows for quite awhile.

Show generally

Question: In one episode (not sure which one but it was in the Dick York era), Darrin was arguing with Samantha and said something like "Confiding in a woman is like broadcasting by Telstar." What exactly does that mean and what was Telstar?

Answer: Telstar was an early communications satellite system. Darrin, in a particularly sexist manner reflective of this era, is saying that telling a secret to a woman means it is guaranteed to be "broadcasted" to multiple people.
