I thought of you this evening as I watched this May 1965 episode of “Bewtiched.” Samantha uses her magical powers to create an ad campaign for struggling a Italian restaurant owner named Mario. His business is failing because everyone wants pizza and Mario comes from a long line of culinary artisans who refuse to serve pizza. Samantha’s magic campaign is so effective that a manufacturer of pizza wants to cut a deal with Mario to make him rich. Even for a million dollars, Mario refuses to make pizza.
