Sabrina the Teenage Witch (titled Sabrina and the Groovie Goolies or The Sabrina Comedy Hour during its first season and promotionally referred to as The Sabrina the Teenage Witch Show or The Sabrina Comedy Show) is an American low-budget animated sitcom television series produced by Filmation that aired on CBS from 1971 to 1974. Based on Archie Comics' Sabrina the Teenage Witch, it was a spinoff of The Archie Comedy Hour. The series featured new episodes of Sabrina along with the Groovie Goolies. The series follows a teenaged witch who likes to hang out and fight enemies using her magical powers, without letting her friends at Riverdale High find out. This series was aimed primarily towards young girls ages 6 to 14, and contained an adult laugh track. Following its first season, the series was reduced to a half-hour when the Goolies were spun off into their own show.

The show's opening strapline is: "Once upon a time, there were three witches, who lived in the little town of Riverdale. Two aunts, Hilda and Zelda, are choosing the ingredients to create an evil wicked witch. But suddenly, Zelda bumped right into Hilda and accidentally added beautiful girls' stuff as an extra ingredient. Thus, the grooviest teenage witch was born. She has white hair with a pink headband, and blue eyes. She wears a blue dress with a black belt and black shoes. She loves to goof off and battle evil forces using her ultra magical powers. It so happens that this is the first bewitching American superhero — Sabrina, the teenage witch!"

Filmation animated Sabrina once more in 1977 with The New Archie and Sabrina Hour.
