2005 The New Worst Witch - Trick or Treat

The New Worst Witch was a British TV series that ran for 2 series from 2005-2006. It carries on from the original 1998-2001 series The Worst Witch, which is based on books by Jill Murphy. This time at Cackles Academy its no longer Mildred 'Millie' Hubble causing trouble its her cousin Henrietta 'Hettie' Hubble who causes just as much trouble. The complete series was released on Region 2 DVD but is hard to find. Many may remember the 1986 made-for-television film The Worst Witch. Though a British film, it aired in the USA on HBO.

In the Halloween episode Hettie, Mona and Cressie have been selected by Miss Nightingale to sing to the Grand Wizard. It turns out, the Grand Wizard is ill, so his place is taken by wizard author Richard Avalon. Hettie gets into trouble while trying to prove a point and is replaced by Belladonna to sing in the ceremony. Hettie decides she must prove who Richard Avalon really is...
