The Witch (that's her name) enjoys Simon's company and consequently wants to join in everything that he does. The opening credits of the show have Simon and the Witch hopping fences and holding up large signs that carry the title of the show. At the end of each show, Simon and the witch can be seen skipping down the road in the end credits.

The series is based on the HarperCollins books written by Margaret Stuart Barry and illustrated by Linda Birch. The titles include Simon and the Witch (1976), The Return of the Witch (1979), The Witch on Holiday (1984), The Witch on Monopoly Manor (1987), The Witch V.I.P.
