Spellbinding Sequel.
21 December 2015 | by Dawalk-1See all my reviews

I think this is a very worthy follow-up to the ABC Weekend Special, The Trouble with Miss Switch, which I caught on Youtube back in this past late October. In this, Rupert and Amelia aid the eponymous sorceress again in going against Saturna, who teams up with a new ally, Mordo. It also involves time-traveling and Amelia getting to meet one of her ancestors. This, along with the other animated ABC Weekend Specials and the animated adaptations of CBS Storybreak, are among the best Saturday morning/early afternoon cartoons of all time. And this is yet another one I found to be entertaining. Concurring with the previous reviewer, this should be brought to DVD already, but not only that. What would make it even better is if it were paired with its predecessor to make those into a two-fer or double feature DVD. I'd like that, that would be great. I say check it out to anybody who hasn't already ever seen it.
