The Worst Witch(1986) - "Mildred Hubble!!!"





Made in Britain, but aired on HBO and Disney, this 1986 film starred Diana Rigg("The Avengers"), Tim Curry("The Rocky Horror Picture Show", "Clue"), Charlotte Rae("The Facts Of Life"), and Fairuza Balk("Return To Oz", "The Craft"). It told the tale of witch in training, Mildred Hubble(Balk), and how she can't seem to do anything right at Miss Cackles's Academy For Witches. Ms. Cackle(Rae) is a kindly woman, but teacher Miss Hardbroom(Rigg) always seems to be on Mildred's back.



I loved this movie as a kid. They aired it every year on Halloween, but I haven't seen it aired on TV in years.



Trailer:




"The Halloween Song" by Tim Curry:

So was this humorous or was it supposed to be spooky? I can't imagine it being too spooky since it was for kids.

Not spooky. It was definitley a kid's movie thru and thru. It had some songs and singing in it too. Very british, but the lead girl was American. A great vibe for Halloween.
