Cassandra the Witch is a thirteen-year-old witch with blue hair seen on the YTV animated fantasy ULTIMATE BOOK OF SPELLS (2001-2002).
Cassandra “Cassy”, a third-year junior witch (“I’m 76 generations enchanted”), attended magic school in Vonderland with her friends Gus, a half-elf second-year junior wizard, and Verne, a newcomer named Mortie (non-magic person) who unbeknownst to them, was descended from Merlin.
Secretly leaving school classes, our young trio traveled to the underworld (Centre Earth) in an attempt to retrieve the world’s lost magic. They received advice and counsel from a talking book called “The Ultimate Book of Spells” (voiced by Ron Halder) which, one day, mysteriously arrived in the mail disguised as a copy of “Journey to the Center of the Earth.”
Along the way, Cassy, Gus and Verne are confronted with their nemesis, the wizard Zarlak (“The most evil wizard of all time”) who seeks to steal magic from the world above and use it for his own devious purposes, namely escaping from his imprisonment below ground.
Also on hand are Cassy’s classmates, the evil twins: Lucretia and Borgia; their teacher, Miss Crystalgazer, Mr. Sternwand, the boring ‘Magical Histories’ teacher; and Professor Beagleboyce, the school’s new librarian.
The series is based on the works of Kay Barnham.
