Bedknobs and Broomsticks

Here is the uncut set Bedknobs and Broomsticks based on the movie which is based on books "The Magic Bed-Knob; or, How to Become a Witch in Ten Easy Lessons (1943) and Bonfires and Broomsticks (1945)" by English children's author Mary Norton. The movie was produced by Disney and released in 1971.  The paper doll book was published by Whitman in 1971 and was authorized by Disney.  I've never seen the movie so I do not know how accurate the very colorful wardrobe is.  The set includes the five characters and six pages of clothing. The cover has art of a town and drawings of the characters. 


  1. I do remember this movie from my childhood. Though by the time I saw it, it was fairly old. It's a fun movie. The clothing is definitely not this colorful, but it is interesting to see how they portray 1940s clothing in a paper doll book from 1971.

  2. Thank you for sharing this set.
    I have never seen the complete set
    before, only bits and pieces.
