Halloween is around the corner, so what better way to get into the spirit than to reminisce over the best (and worst) witches of them all.
Sabrina – Sabrina the Teenage Witch
She deals with everything that a normal teenager deals with, including friendships, boys, and trying to be cool. She just so happens to have the added bonus of being a witch and living with funky aunties and a sassy black cat.
Hermione – Harry Potter
She’s got the brains, the beauty and the sass. She can be a bit irritable at times, but you would be too if you were time travelling between all your classes.
Wendy – Casper Meets Wendy
She’s so cute and innocent in her red cape, but when it comes to standing up to the bad guys, she’s all over it. Not many 12 year olds can say they’ve befriended a ghost, fought off bullies, and defeated the evil warlock.
The White witch – The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe
Not only did she curse Narnia to 100 years of snow, she also banned Christmas. 100 years of snow is no biggie. But no Christmas? That’s just pure evil.
Glinda the Good Witch – The Wizard of Oz
Floating towards Dorothy in a bubble is probably the best entrance a good witch could have. She is a bundle of joy and sparkles, bringing only good, beauty, and an angelic singing voice to the land.
Samantha – Bewitched
She’s just a typical American girl, who married a typical American boy. The only thing is that she also happens to be a witch. Which makes her a housewife witch with a cute nose twitch.
Bellatrix Lestrange – Harry Potter
She’s the definition of crazy, creepy, and evil. Seriously, who in their right mind is in love with Voldemort and kills poor little Dobby? But then again, she’s not in the right mind is she?
Ursula – The Little Mermaid
She may be glamorous and confident and “help” the sad merfolk, but she is far from kind. I don’t know about you, but I definitely wouldn’t want the temperamental, selfish Ursula ruling our oceans.
Yzma – The Emperor’s New Groove
Call it science if you want, but as soon as an emperor is turned into a Llama, there has to be some kind of sorcery involved. She’s skinny, scrawny, and definitely not easy on the eyes. Even when she turns into a cute white cat, she’s just as evil.
Wicked Witch of the West – The Wizard of Oz
Unlike Glinda, the Wicked Witch appears in a menacing cloud of red smoke. She’s ugly and she’s green (most likely from jealousy). But lucky for Dorothy and her gang, with just a bucket of water, the Wicked Witch melts away into a pathetic puddle of nothingness.
Winnie – Hocus Pocus
With those rosy cheeks, big teeth, and fantastic performance abilities, you’d think she wasn’t so bad. But wait, did I mention she sucks the souls of innocent children. She’s basically a Dementor in a friendly disguise.
Mama Odie – The Princess and the Frog
She’s the cute, lovable voodoo queen of the bayou. She may be 197 years old, but don’t be fooled because this grandma has psychic abilities, control over magic, voodoo, and even nature.
Mary Poppins – Marry Poppins
Not only is she the best nanny ever, giving spoons of sugar to children, but she’s also the best witch ever. What other witch sings their spells with such joy and creates an entire universe of chalk drawings?
