One thought on “The Worst Witch (1986) – Watch it Online

  1. I loved this movie as a kid, I watched it every year. Unfortunately the later TV series just fell flat (for me at least).
    People who watch it now will likely think it’s a bad harry potter ripoff, but it came out a good decade before harry potter was invented, leaving potter as the ripoff artist.

    I rewatched this a year or two ago (for the first time since childhood), and noticed something. The star is feiruza balk, one of the leads in a later witch movie “the craft”.
