From the Back Cover

The Worst Witch Before Harry Potter, author Jill Murphy captivated audiences with her best-selling tales of Mildred Hubble, a hopelessly clumsy young witch-in-training. Murphy's wonderful stories are even rumored to have been the inspiration behind the phenomenal Harry Potter creation.

Enter the gloomy halls of Miss Cackle's Academy for Witches, a school where chemistry class involves magic potions, final exams center on spells and students ride broomsticks instead of bicycles. No matter how hard she tries, poor Mildred just can't seem to cut it: her incantations backfire and she cannot ride her broom without unleashing a calamity. Still, she never gives up trying, so join Mildred and her friENDs for plenty of riotous adventure and magical mayhem.
Miss Cackle's Birthday Surprise
A birthday celebration for Miss Cackle is a long day full of boring chants and ceremonies in which the whole school is required to take part. Enid decides to liven things up by dragging Mildred into a closet, but sharp-eyed Ethel Hallow sees her chance to get them in trouble and locks them inside. Mildred has already received her last warning-this catastrophe is sure to get her expelled!
The Great outdoorsThe first-year girls embark on a special "no magic" camping trip. Unfortunately, they discover they must share their campsite with a troop of Canadian Boy Scouts. When the two groups are sent on a treasure hunt, Mildred's attempts to stop overly-competitive Ethel from cheating throws cold water on their outdoor fun.
Sorcery and Chips
The school's potion lab is being modernized with all sorts of computerized gadgets and software. At first, the changes are impressive-until something evil takes hold of the machinery. Soon, it downloads plans to take over the world via the Internet! Can Mildred's old-fashioned methods banish it?
Let Them Eat Cake
The gang has a plan to sneak into Mrs. Cosie's Tearoom, a wonderful, but strictly off limits, haven of delicious treats. During their illicit feast, they manage to overhear some mysterious patrons revealing a disturbing plan: the site of the tearoom is to be turned into a toxic waste incinerator! Can Mildred and her friENDs set things right before it's too late?
Sweet Talking GuysThe Chief Wizard and miss cackle have decided that the students need more practice in public speaking. A debate is arranged between the young witches and three apprentices from the local wizard's school. After the first half, it looks like the girls have it in the bag. Even Mildred does particularly well. Then, the boys try to fix the game with their magic "fizzy juice", which creates some unlikely "guest speakers."
A Bolt From the BlueIt is nearly the END of Mildred's first year at the Academy. One evening, a fierce wind blows through the school. Everyone seems fine afterwards except for Miss Cackle, who suddenly insists on expelling Mildred! Something is clearly wrong and Mildred suspects the culprit is Miss Cackle's evil sister. When she tries to find out what is going on, the result is a powerful showdown of magic!

My kids and I were lucky enough to get a advance promotional copy of this great DVD/VHS set. We have been fans of this show since it's been airing on HBO. If you are a Harry Potter fan than these videos and DVD's you will surely love. My girls just love all the capers and buggelings of Mildred (the female Harry Potter)and these programs are perfect for anyone who wants their kids to watch wholesome great family entertaiment.

An excellent series about Mildred a young witch starting at Miss Cackle's Academy for Witches (a boarding witch's secondary school). It's based on the few 'Worst Witch' books by Jill Murphy (a child's easy good read as well).

This DVD set has the last seven episodes taken from the first series (year 7), and so is very good value. Note that in the US this UK/Canadian series was tastelessly dubbed in `American' but fortunately there is a `UK English' option in the DVD setup menu so you can hear the stars real voices if you ish (the choice is yours). The rest of series one (episodes 1 to 6) is on the 'Battle of Broomsticks/Mean Halloween' two DVD NTSC set', also available from Amazon.

These DVD's are still some of my 11 year old daughters favourite viewing and would suite 8 upwards. They aren't as scary as Harry Potter and all the cast are really excellent in their roles - Miss Hardbroom [Kate Duchene] even turned down a role in the Harry Potter film to remain true to her TV character.

Typical quotes: "Magic must not be used for selfish or trivial ends!" - Miss Cackle, "Confidence and control, Mildred - that's the secret of success." - Miss Hardbroom. So highly recommended for non-boy offspring - this series is easily a notch above the average TV sitcom or teen movie.

Not quite a snappy as "The Worst Witch" movie with Fairuza Balk and Tim Curry, but very good and sweet, clean fun with beautiful scenic filming locations. Satisfies my "instant justice" wish that I can't execute in real life.

The Worst Witch (The Movie)The Worst Witch Collection - Set 2
I bought this movie for my 5 year old daughter, because I remember how much I liked it when I was a kid. She loves this movie, along with my 3 year old daughter, so I bought them the set of the series, and they really enjoy that too. Of course, now my daughter is always making "potions" and trying to get her older brother to drink them. I love movies that bring out a childs imagination.
