Bette Midler Loves 'Hocus Pocus' As Much As You Do


Bette Midler loves "Hocus Pocus" as much as you.

Midler, better known as Winnifred Sanderson, stopped by "Katie" this week and told host Katie Couric that "Hocus Pocus" is one of her favorite films.

"Oh, I love it. I love it," Midler said. "We made at before the tidal wave of Halloween happened. Now it's like huge. It's huge. Kids, grown-ups, everyone takes part in it. This movie was kind of like the beginning of the wave. We had a great time making it. It was Kathy Najimy, Sarah Jessica Parker and I and we laughed the whole time ... we just had the best time."

And for good measure, here's Midler performing "I Put A Spell On You" from "Hocus Pocus."

"Katie" airs in national syndication. Check your local listings for times and channels.
