Classification shoujo
Synopsis Sally is a young witch who comes from a magical kingdom and is sent to live on Earth. She makes herself a house, which looks a bit like a Disney magic house and makes the neighbours rub their eyes in disbelief. She attends the local school like an ordinary girl. With her live a magical cat and at least one younger child with magical powers.
Characters from the magical world often intrude.
Review An oldish "magical girl" series, distinguished by the outrageous magical events which occur. Sally has a bouffant hairdo of the sort more usually seen on middle-aged ladies. It's not the greatest series but it's funny, and whiles away a pleasant 25 minutes.

I have seen only 1 or 2 eps of the 1966 series, eough to verify that the animation style of the 1966 is noticeably "earlier", but much is unchanged in series 2.
