At Last!

I would say I can't tell you how excited I was to stumble upon this comment section, but it appears many of you already have. I have been googling "witch, movie, pancakes" for years and only today, did I finally find this bevy of info from like-minded souls. I'm of the group that other people thought was crazy because no one I asked had for the last several years ever heard of it. And why did everyone see this movie in elementary school and ONLY elementary school? My school was in Sacramento, CA, and this was in the 1970s, just like everyone else. And I think I had completely forgotten about The Red Balloon! Gawd, I feel so validated! Now I can't wait to run out and tell everyone how uncrazy I am!
