Storyline

Lalabelle is a 10-year-old witch from the land of magic. Biscus, an evil wizard goes to earth with stolen magic items to make a fortune. Lalabelle and her cat Bila follow him to stop him but cannot return to their world. Lalabelle can protect herself and solves various problems with her magic wand by saying "Belalulu Belalulu Belalalula". A couple of old earthians who are sad to see their own grand daughter leave them to live with her parents decide quite happily to adopt Lalabelle. But the little girl is not accustomed to human habits and does not intend to hide her powers. Written by Greg Philip <greg_philip@hotmail.com>

Not as good at 30 as it was at 5
2 June 2007 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

This series is now available in bootleg DVD's in Mexico City. It's the Mexican dub which was broadcast on Channel 5 around 1985; where they get it from is a mystery... maybe someone taped all the episodes on BETA or VHS more than twenty years ago, for an unknown reason. a fan, or someone who thought that someday it would become a business opportunity? Last year I bought discs 1 and 12, the beginning and the end, and the episodes do have a decent video and audio quality (considering it's a TV broadcast from the 80's). As for the show itself, well, it doesn't live up to my childhood memories. MOst episodes are filler, with Lalabelle fighting Biscus and his silly plans, with obvious moral messages thrown in by the grandfather. Even the final episode is not as exciting as I remembered it, with both Lalabelle and Biscus finishing all the magic in their suitcases and becoming 'normal' humans. I guess it's always good to revisit the things that entertained you when you were growing up, but it's a shame that some of them don't live up to the memories...
