Goofs

At times you can tell they are using a green screen effect for the flying that the cast does and Miss Spellbinder when she is conducting a flying class when the group have got their kittens and learning to fly. Also when Mildred has turned the bad witches into snails in the TV version of the film they had squeaky voices dubbed for the snails but in the film if you watch the same scene when Mildred, Miss Cackle and Miss Hardbroom are talking to the snails the squeaky voices are not there! Just silence. See more »

The Worst Witch is the greatest film of all time. The acting was superb, the plot was brilliant, the cast was (dare I say) genious. Never in my wildest dreams have I ever seen such sights that I saw in The worst Witch. Mrs. Hardbroom, what a fox. And the Grand Wizard's performance is to die for. I recomend this movie to anyone no matter what kind of movies you like, I don't care. If I knew the director, I would give him/her a big sloppy wet kiss on the cheek. The picture was truly magnificent.
