My earliest recollection of witches was Bewitched (1964). From the first episode, I wanted Samantha Stevens' power of twitching my nose to make magical things happen. I am still working on the twitching part, but my fascination with witches never ended.
Here is a clip I found. Bring back any memories?
The paranormal genre on television continued through the years with shows such as Charmed, Sabrina the Teenage Witch and ABC's newest Witch Show, Eastwick.

To end this tribute I leave you with a poem by William Shakespeare:
The Witches Caldron
"Eye of newt, and toe of frog,
Wool of bat, and tongue of dog"
"Adder's fork, and blind-worm's sting,
Lizard's leg, and owlet's wing"
"For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and babble"
"Double, double, toil and trouble,
Fire burn, and caldron bubble"
