There's an odd conjunction between reading Pratchett's witches and seeing Yuubaba and Zeniba in Spirited Away. Granny Weatherwax with a bit more strangeness could be both, or either. Zeniba's house, though, on second viewing, isn't really Japanese at all.

Also it appears that the version of S&C that Miyazaki first scripted would have run three hours. I'd have loved to see that film.
