Pretty young witch Tabitha works at a television Station. A troublesome figure from her school days returns in the form of Portia, a beautiful witch who sets her seductive sights for happily married producer Marvin Decker.

When Portia's attempted seduction fails, she conjures up a magical red velvet coat which is delivered to Marvin the next day. As soon as he puts the coat on, a transformation occurs: Marvin begins talking in hip jargon and invites Portia to a night spot called the Dirty Disco.

At the disco, Marvin is dancing with Portia when Tabitha magically causes him to feel so warm that he removes his coat. When he does so, Marvin does not remember how he got to the disco or why. His wife Lorraine arrives to find Marvin with Portia and furiously dumps a cake on his head.

The next day, Tabitha outfits Lorraine in the same slinky fashion worn by Portia. Meanwhile, Portia is also dressing Marvin in a flashy fashion -- complete with an outlandish wig for his bald head. When Lorraine and Marvin meet, they find each other's appearance so comical that they burst out laughing, then embrace.

Unable to conquer the power of love and laughter, Portia angrily departs, leaving the married couple more in love than ever before.


Portia, a witch who made Tabitha's high school years unpleasant, returns to create havoc anew by seductively bewitching the happily married Marvin.
