Series: T-Bag
Along with Knightmare, an ITV kids favourite of the eighties and nineties. It consisted of nine seasons, each of which had its own title. There is no official title for the series as a whole but it's known as T-Bag for simplicity's sake.

T-Bag (short for either Tallulah or Tabatha, depending on which season you're watching) is a witch who wants to Take Over the World but is constantly thwarted by either a young girl collecting the scattered MacGuffins which can defeat her and using them to do just that or by having her own MacGuffins scattered through time and space and a young girl beating her to finding them again. There were five different girls (Debbie, Holly, Sally, Polly and Penny) throughout eight seasons and the ages at which they were cast changed to match the age of the one constant character, T-Bag's assistant, T-Shirt. Originally a little boy but, being played by the same actor throughout nine seasons, he wasn't so little anymore by the end. T-Shirt (short for Thomas) is abducted from the real world by Tallulah and put under mind control in order to brew T-Bag's magical-power-giving tea and help her collect the MacGuffins. At the end of each season T-Bag almost reaches her goal but then the MacGuffins are reunited and T-Bag's control over T-Shirt is broken and he helps the girl defeat T-Bag and return home. When Tabatha came along, T-Shirt seemed to be helping her out quite willingly but then Tabatha wasn't really scary. For Season Nine the idea of a girl on the opposite side of things was dropped and a previously unmentioned cousin of T-Shirt's appeared instead.

Originally intended to be reasonably educational but that idea was dropped pretty quickly.
