Literary Toons: The Trouble With Miss Switch (1979)

From the ABC Weekend Special comes this Ruby-Spears adaptation of Barbara Brooks Wallace's The Trouble With Miss Switch. Originally shown in two parts, it was eventually released on home video by the network's video arm, as you'll see.

Miss Switch (Janet Waldo) is a substitute teacher as well as a practicing witch whose coven has fallen into the hands of the evil Saturna (June Foray). Two students are recruited to help Miss Switch stop Saturna. There would, unsurprisingly, be a sequel, Miss Switch To The Rescue, which Ruby-Spears would produce for ABC the next year. I never saw this, so there isn't going to be a rating. I meant to post this during Spooktober, but I kept finding other things that got my attention.
