We are back with #2 in our week of Halloween Specials. Today’s special is The Worst Witch, a 1986 made-for-tv movie starring Diana Rigg, Charlotte Rae, Fairuza Balk and Tim Curry.
Like Mr. Boogedy, The Worst Witch, was a staple of Halloween programming long after it’s initial release. Based on the book by Jill Murphy, The Worst Witch follows Mildred Hubble, a witch-in-training at an academy for witches. I’m sure this book series had no influence on J.K. Rowling whatsoever.
Here you go.
P.S. Tim Curry’s song hits around the 47 minute mark.
