Synopsis by Hal Erickson
This "very special" Christmas episode of Bewitched was adapted by Barbara Avedon and William Asher from a story submitted by the fifth-period English class at Thomas Jefferson High School in Los Angeles, CA (the story had been written at the behest of teacher Marcella Saunders as a thank-you for the class' visit to the Bewitched set at Columbia studios). In the spirit of equality, Tabitha uses "wishcraft" to cast a spell on herself and her black playmate, Lisa (Venetta Rodgers). Now, both girls are covered with multicolored polkadots which make them look alike -- almost. Tabitha's efforts to transform Lisa into her spiritual sister may not, however, rest well with Lisa's parents (Don Marshall, Janee Michelle), nor with Darrin's bigoted client, Mr. Brockway (Parley Baer). Refreshingly free of the patronization which usually attended "racially sensitive" TV episodes of the period, "Sisters at Heart" made its first network appearance on December 24, 1970.
