Eye of the Beholder is the 22nd episode of the first season of the Bewitched.


Endora tries to make Samantha seem older than she actually is by putting her face on an old painting dating back to 1690. Darrin notices this and wonders if he's growing old while she remains young. Samantha finds out that her mother is to blame for all this mess, and Endora tells her that she can age along with Darrin.


  • Samantha tells Darrin her birthday is June 6. It's curious that Darrin does not already know his wife's birthday.
  • Sam's incantation to call Endora is "Quadramus-invecta-expedia".
  • Darrin drives to Westbridge Avenue Park in a 1965 Chevy, license 4R 6558.
  • Cindy Eilbacher, who played Kimmy, voiced Tabitha in the once-aired cartoon spin-off Tabitha and Adam and the Clown Family.
  • This episode was filmed on January 11, 1965 to kick off the new year.
  • The title alludes to the proverb, "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder."
