"Toys in Babeland"
Airdate: Sept. 14, 1967
While minding Tabitha, Endora learns from the witches' mailman that she is expected at a party at the Taj Mahal. In the emergency, she brings a toy soldier to life to babysit. After she leaves, Tabitha mimics her gestures and animates all her toys. Larry is annoyed that Darrin has invited Bob Chase, a client, to dinner. Larry invites himself and Louise too. Samantha returns home to find the toys having a party. Unable to reverse the spell, Samantha tells Darrin to call off the dinner while she tries to find Endora. Although the Chases are on their way, Darrin tells Larry the dinner is off. Larry thinks Darrin is opening his own agency and trying to steal one of his clients. Larry sees the dancing toys through the window and thinks the Stephens are having a costume party. He takes the soldier to a bar. Although the soldier remains silent, Larry thinks he's working for Darrin's new agency. Darrin overhears Larry bemoaning his duplicity. All his explanations only bolster Larry's suspicions. Samantha arrives with Endora's spell and changes the soldier back to a toy. Larry swears off drinking and apologizes to Darrin. At home, Tabitha upsets Darrin by making long distance calls on her toy phone. Samantha says it doesn't matter as long as they are not on the phone bill.
