A Halloween Story is the 5th episode of Season 1 of Sabrina the Teenage Witch.


When she's forced to attend a family affair on Halloween, Sabrina sends a clone to Harvey's party, where the simple-minded stand-in (who can only speak three sentences) agrees to streak naked in order to liven up the festivities, on the request of Libby. Meanwhile, the real Sabrina desperately tries to ditch her relatives: her obnoxiously snobby cousin Marigold and her brat of a daughter, Amanda, whose hobby is putting people who make her mad into jars.
