Tady došli lidi k názoru, že ten seriál byl nejspíš ovlivněnej Rowlingovou. Asi deset let předtím, než publikovala první knihu. Magic!https://www.quora.com/Was-Harry-Potter-heavily-influenced-by-The-Worst-Witch
Was Harry Potter heavily influenced by The Worst Witch?
Benjamin Murphy, I've read the books and seen the movies.

I read the first Worst Witch book about a couple of years after it was published, and probably read the second as soon as it came out. I haven’t read the rest of the series, but I did enjoy those first two books.
Do I think that J.K. Rowling was copying Jill Murphy? No.
There’s a long tradition of boarding school novels and stories in England. Tom Brown’s Schooldays is the most influential novel in the genre. P. G. Wodehouse started his career writing about boarding schools, Enid Blyton wrote her share of boarding school novels, then there’s Frank Richards, Angela Brazil, Anthony Buckeridge, there’s St. Trinian’s, St. Custard’s (as any fule kno), I could go on. This was once a hugely popular and flexible genre - boarding school stories could be funny, serious, whatever you wanted.
So why not mix one popular genre, the boarding school story, with another, the fantasy novel? Now I think of it, Penelope Farmer’s Charlotte Sometimes mixes boarding school setting with the supernatural, and it was absolutely terrifying the first time I read it. It was published in 1969.
My point is that the idea of writing a novel that combines boarding school genre with fantasy genre is actually a fairly obvious idea, and one that obviously opens up a lot of possibilities. But to do it well requires skill and creativity, something that both Jill Murphy and J. K. Rowling have. They are two good writers who were both drawing on the same traditions to make something new. People who read their work but are not familiar with the whole boarding school genre might think they must be copying from each other because they’re not aware of the shared tradition.

Did JK Rowling get in trouble with the author of The Worst Witch? As I watch The Worst Witch with my daughter, I’m blown away by the similarities with the Harry Potter books. It almost seems like a case of plagiarism to me.
I just watched the 2017 show The Worst Witch on Netflix? My first thought was that the show was a Harry Potter ripoff, except that there was a Worst Witch movie in the 1980s. Who is the original magical child, Harry Potter or Mildred Hubble?

I doubt it. Many of the tropes in Harry Potter can be found in hundreds of books. The reason people find such similarities between The worst Witch and Harry Potter to believe that it has some influence is because they don’t read. Simple as that. They have read Harry Potter or maybe just seen the films and watched the worst witch tv series and perhaps read the worst witch books. The worst Witch is a very childish series of books written for 7 to 9 year olds. There is nothing wrong with the books. They are great and I loved them as a child. But the characters are one dimensional and are just nothing like Harry Potter. The tropes seen in both books are common in children’s literature. The magic side of things is also common.

I'm pretty sure it's the other way around. I know that JK Rowling thought of her book in a restaurant in Switzerland. She always drew those 3 characters, before she thought of the book.

Hmm, the first Worst Witch book was published in 1974, so it is possible J.K. Rowling could have been influenced by it. But the Worst Witch show was likely influenced at least a little by Harry Potter. So perhaps they influenced each other.

Any movie or book can be seen as the same plot. But when you add the details, they are quite different. Both are based on a magical child who doesn’t know about their powers. They both go to a magical school. But the detailed plots are pretty different.
