The Witch in the Candy House was a human woman.
Very similar to the witch in the fairy tale "Hansel and Gretel", the Witch in the Candy House was an evil old witch. She owned an enchanted house made of candy, which she used to lure greedy children (or sometimes adults) inside; there, she presented them with more and more treats, then drove them to bed, planning on killing and eating them in their sleep.
In 1999, she tried to roast Mickey and Minnie Mouse; this proved to be a mistake, as the two brave mice eventually pushed her into her own flaming enchanted oven. Nevertheless, the flames inside the oven then took the shape of the dead Witch, implying her ghost might be possessing the fire and she might not be really gone.
Behind the scenesEdit
She only ever appeared as the main antagonist of the 1999 short The Candy House.
