2. Watch Out for a Mother’s Bewitching Wiles

There was a new twist to TV moms in the ’60s, with characters like “Samantha Stephens,” a role Elizabeth Montgomery owned on Bewitched, taking to screens to show another side of motherhood. These empowered moms were just as capable as their pearl-toting counterparts, but now they had supernatural powers, or were just a little more outside the box. Others include the incomparable Carolyn Jones as “Morticia Addams” on The Addams Family and Yvonne De Carlo, as “Lily Munster” on popular show The Munsters.
