Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Double Double Toil and Trouble is a 1993 TV movie that exhibits the Olsen twins at age 7, in their fullest phase of cuteness. Much of the script's humor revolves around their precocious handling of grown-up frailties. The movie is more silly than scary, but there are some minor frights: A gravedigger who is afraid of Agatha digs a grave at her command; and witches gather to make evil plans (more sensitive children may want to fast-forward through this creepy witches' meeting, and they can do so without missing much essential plot information). Their cauldron flares up with much drama. Agatha turns a good guy into a crow. In Agatha's scary house, the girls free Sophia from the mirror, but Agatha tries to push her back and, in the scuffle, is pushed into the mirror and trapped there herself.
