Halloween is creeping up, which means it’s almost time to dust off those spell books and grab your broomstick. Witches come in all shapes, sizes, and genders, but it’s their charming mischievousness that we can’t help but fall head over heels for. This October, Blush rounds up our all-time top 5 bad witches.
5. Scary Godmother
If you were a frequent Cartoon Network viewer around the 2000’s, you may recognize this witch from “Scary Godmother: Halloween Spooktacular”. The movie starts out with a boy, Jimmy, and his friends playing a prank on his little cousin. His cousin ends up being saved by a Scary Godmother and is taken to a Halloween party, where she overcomes her fears of monsters. Scary Godmother is the “OG” witch. She may be nicer than the average witch, but who doesn’t love a gal serving crazy stockings, pointy black shoes, and the classic wide-brim hat?
4. Halliwell Sisters
“Charmed Ones” was a show that I watched because of my mom. It aired in the late 90’s and involved three powerful sisters; Prue, Piper, and Phoebe. These sisters were the strongest when together, especially with their common spell, “The power of three will set you free.” In the midst of vanquishing demons, they lived a somewhat normal life. Piper was the “mom” of the group, while Phoebe was usually the one getting in sticky relationships. They were sisters until the end… Until the director replaced Prue with Paige. Weird.
3. The Sanderson Sisters
Someone is brewing up trouble… Who else would it be other than the Sanderson Sisters? The Sanderson sisters are three witches from the loveable-classic, “Hocus Pocus”. Now, if you were a regular on Disney Channel, you might have watched this at least once… twice.. maybe a solid 20 times.
2. Sophie Piper
Forget Marnie, Sophie was the real hero! In fall-time classic “Halloweentown”, 13-year-old Marnie finds out that she is a witch because of her mom’s side. Marnie tries to save the day after her mom and grandmother are frozen by an evil warlock. But if it weren’t for Sophie, *cough* the real witch *cough*, Marnie would not have remembered the most important spell to save all of Halloweentown.
1. Sabrina Spellman
Being a teenager can be rough. But what about being a teen witch? “Sabrina the Teenage Witch” was a show that had everything you needed; love, action, humor, and magic spells. Who could resist Sabrina’s wacky world with her Aunt Zelda and Aunt Hilda, as well as the cat with a mouth, Salem? Sabrina Spellman was living the bad witch dream.
