''Mahou Tsukai Chappy'' is an early MagicalGirl anime, aired in 1972. it's about CuteWitch Chappy who, becoming sick of the old customs of her people, leaves the Land of Magic for the human world wth her little brother Jun and their pet Don-chan. Soon her family sees how much she has in the other realm that they decide to join her in new home, facing normal life as much as they can without exposing their secrets.

Chappy is known for being the first witch to use a MagicWand (actually a magical baton, given to her by her grandfather). Her special chant is "Abura Mahariku Maharita Kabura". Chappy's closest human friends are tomboy Michiko and girly-girl Shizuko, much like her predecessor Sally's friends Yotchan and Sumire.
