Why is there so little talk, if any, of the great similarities between Worst Witch and Harry Potter?
4 December 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this show when first telecast in North America, even though I am male and was about 30 years old at the time. I still will watch an episode every now and then, if I stumble upon it while channel surfing.

I do not understand how so little has been said about the similarities between Harry Potter and Worst Witch. I would even have expected outright claims of plagiarism. Yet, I have never even hear the two series (of books) mentioned in the same breath (and I am quite the media addict, so few scandals or controversies escape my notice). In fact, all I ever seem to have heard was how marvelously inventive J.K. Rowling has been with the Potter series. Huh?

The Potter series seems to have greatly eclipses Worst Witch. And the fact that, while Worst Witch ended up a TV series, and Potter books ended up a series of mega-films has not helped. Too bad, as I think of Worst Witch as utterly charming, while the whole Potter phenomenon is simply OTT.
