Other Mermaids.


The Bewitched television series ran from 1964 to 1972, and follows the adventures of happily married couple Samantha and Darrin Stevens, whose home lives are not-so-typical thanks to the fact that Samantha is a witch and Darrin is a mortal human. It's a culture clash in the suburbs, where Samantha (at least at first) tries to make do without magic as Darrin's wife, while Darrin slowly and surely learns how extensive Samantha's magical ability and magical family is.

The show ran for eight seasons, and in the eighth season there's an episode, "Samantha and the Loch Ness Monster" where there's a mermaid appearance. In this episode, Samantha and Darrin are in Iverness, Scotland, where they encounter the Loch Ness monster. The Loch Ness monster is actually a warlock named Bruce, who was bespelled into a monster by Samantha's cousin, Serena. When Samantha learns that a German scientist wants to capture the Loch Ness monster, she contacts Serena, asking her to unspell Bruce so he'll be safe. Serena does it, but as soon as he's restored, Bruce gets his revenge by transforming Serena into a magic-less mermaid.
