Welcome Back. Duke is the sixteenth episode of the fourth season and the ninety first overall episode of Sabrina the Teenage Witch.


After Salem learns one of his old cronies, Duke, has completed his sentence as a cat, he asks Hilda and Zelda if he could stay with them long enough to get back on his feet. After they reluctantly agree, everybody learns that Duke's magic is really rusty and he soon blows up Hilda's clock shop when he's left in charge. To make matters worse, while Sabrina is practicing for an upcoming dance audition, he gives her two right feet and puts a spell on Harvey that makes him act like a child. Hilda and Zelda eventually are able to reverse Duke's spells.

Meanwhile, while Sabrina practices for her dance audition, Hilda and Zelda unsuccessfully try to coach her girls basketball team.

  •  Mr. Kraft, Dreama, Brad, and Josh do not appear in this episode.
  • This is the first time that Sabrina mentions her desire to go to John Adams College which she will do in Season Five.
  • In the opening scene where Sabrina's team runs in the house, Salem yelled out "Oh no! Not Sabrina's tiny bopper basketball team!" Realistically, they should have heard him.
  • Dick Van Dyke guest stars in this episode as Duke. As a witch, he conjures up an ottoman and Sabrina trips on it. This is an homage to the beginning of every episode of The Dick Van Dyke Show, in which Dick used to trip on an ottoman.
