any pre-internet fandom history?

Fandom wise, there is very little fanworks such as fanfiction and fanart but the TV series was beloved by many Americans viewers and it's popularity is one of the reasons why it's still in syndication and fanworks or fannish communities focusing on Bewitched are created even decades later.

In 1998, three mailing lists were created that focused on Bewitched and/or Elizabeth Montgomery: lizzieandbewitched, theofficialbewitchedclub, Bewitched. The following years, several other mailing lists were created from 1999-2007. In 2003 the LiveJournal community bewitchedfans was created which was the first of a few Bewitched LJ communities. A few Bewitched Myspace pages were created in 2004 and 2005. Bewitched Fan Fiction, a archive for Bewitched fanfics was started around or before 2004 and remained updated until late 2010. Harpies Bizarre, open since 2000, has pages for fanworks such as fanfiction, pumpkins and fan cosplays and is still open now.

The canon pairing of Samantha/Darrin is fairly popular, although some slash pairings have appeared.

Crossovers often appear in the fandom, mostly with I Dream of Jeannie or Harry Potter.
