What '90s kid doesn't remember the rage that was Friday nights when ABC hosted only the best TV shows back-to-back? Family Matters, Full House, Boy Meets World, and others were all part of the popular TGIF lineup.
My personal favorite, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, starring Melissa Joan Hart.
The show, which is based on the Archie Comics series and premiered in 1996, was about a teenage witch who lived with her 600-year-old witch aunts, and a magical black cat named Salem. Oh Salem, he always gave Sabrina great advice—sarcastic, but great. He was the best.
Over two decades have passed since the series originally aired, and although I was a huge fan as a child, I never came around to know who voiced Salem. And low-key, I bet you're thinking the same.
That's why I went ahead and did some leg work for all those forever STTW fans.
Salem Saberhagen was one of the main characters on the show for all of its seven seasons. He was voiced by New York-based writer, actor, voice actor, comedian, and sportscaster, Nicholas "Nick" Bakay on all seasons.
He was also the writer for the show's cartoon series and provided the voice for Salem. This is him.
Perhaps he's a familiar face to you, and that's because Bakay has made several TV appearances in shows such as In Living Color, That '70s Show, The King of Queens, and Seinfeld.
He's been an avid sports writer and commentator on big networks such as ESPN and NFL. And most recently, he co-wrote the comedy films Paul Blart: Mall Cop and Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 with Kevin James.
There you go. Mystery solved.
