    Ok guys it's a long shot here because I can't remember much at all about this movie. It was a Japanese anime movie I watched back probably in 1986 or 1987, I think it was when I was home sick after having my tonsils removed in the first grade, hence the foggy memory. All I remember is a witch who looked like she floated around rather quickly on what looked like a ball or the bottom half of her body was a ball. The main character was a young girl who after being chased through some sort of maze defeated the witch by appealing to her good side reversing her bad ways. I remember it as being kind of creepy but that may be because as I laid on what seemed to be my deathbed for all hours of the non-school day at the time I also watched The Adventures of Mark Twain. Wish I could give more details. Any ideas?

    I doubt this is it, but wasn't there a character like that in Dragonball or DBZ. I remember a little purple-haired midget witch, in typical black robe and pointy hat, riding around on a flying crystal ball.
