I am not insane!

Well, not in this particular instance, at least.

Anybody else out there, born in the late 60's or early 70's, who's been haunted by a vague memory of watching a movie in school about a witch and some magic pancakes?  Perhaps with an old spooky house and colorful dots flashing across the screen?  Well, despair no more!  One day a few weeks ago I happened to mention this nagging brain worm to my husband.  And, being the internet master that he is, he found it!

Now of course, seeing it again and reading the website, I am amazed that this film made such a lasting impression on so many people.  It really is a terrible movie.  And the similarity of the magic pancakes to illegal drugs is so very strong, I can't believe this was actually approved for school viewing.

But, anyway, the brain worm is gone, finally.  Finally!

Very good to know that you're not insane! Never heard of the movie. I must be too old. :o/

These new word verifications are driving ME insane!

Hmmm, that was my timeline for being born and I don't remember the movie. Did your teacher have something for magic pancakes? lol I'm one to talk though. My teacher had us watch 'Billy Jack' in school. Nothing like teaching rebellion to impressionable children. No wonder I turned out the way I did.

OOhhhhhhh, the Polka Dots! Yes, I had nightmares from that for at least three or four of my formative years, thank you very much!

You're not crazy, just suffering the after-effects of consuming some 1970s pop-culture mental junk food! ;-)
