Did you ever wish for a special friend? Feeling neglected by his busy father, 10-year-old Gene did - and up popped a young, pretty witch, assigned by the boss warlock in the sky. Winnie looked like a refugee from the 60's, with her long stringy hair and funky clothes, but she was just what the Harpers needed. To single dad Thomas, a divorced attorney who worked out of their Connecticut home, she was the slightly off-centered housekeeper. Only the kids knew she had magical powers. Need an egg for breakfast? Poof - there's a bunch of hens cackling in the kitchen cabinet. Can't get tickets to a rock concert? Poof - two tickets pop up in the toaster. Does Jessie's data act like a cad? Poof - he's a monkey. Wow! Neat! Canceled!
