Madam Mim

Madam Mim from Sword in the Stone

It is Spot Week at From Screen to Theme, and this week I will be writing about a very overlooked character, Madam Mim. In 1963 Disney released a wonderful film called 'The Sword in the Stone.' She can be found in other films such as 'Mickey's House of Villains,' and 'Mickey's Magical Christmas: Snowed in at the House of Mouse.' In television shows, she can be found in 'A poem Is,' and 'House of Mouse.' In video games she can be found in one of my old school favorites World of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck. She can also be found in other merchandise such as toys, pins, Disney art, comic books, and vinylmations.

She lives in a cottage, where she brews her potions. Her allies include Phantom Blot, Pete, Merlock the Magician, the Beagle Boys, Chernabog, Magica De Spell, and the rest of the Disney villains. Her enemies include Sir Ector, Merlin, Archimedes, Sir Kay, Sir Bart, King Arthur, Scrooge McDuck, and the rest of the good Disney characters.

Madam Mim is extremely terrifying. She is hideous looking and is nuts: they call her Mad Madam Mim for a reason. She is overweight, has a large nose, thick black eyebrows, green eyes, and purple hair. She wears purple shoes, a maroon skirt, and a purple shirt. Madam Mim is a witch and she can change shapes, and turn herself into anything she wants, which is my favorite scene from the movie when she is dueling with Merlin.

She has been voiced by two people over the years which were Russi Taylor and Martha Wentworth. She was animated by legendary Disney animators Frank Thomas and Milt Kahl.

Madam Mim can't be found in Disney parks, which is a shame. I absolutely love her character and I think she would make a great addition to the theme parks and resorts.
