Also, they cursed Thackery and turned him into an immortal cat. Furthermore, when Binx’s father captured them, they cursed that they would return on Halloween Eve.


The story took 300 years to leap after the incident and portrayed that a teenage boy Max Dennison was moved with his family to Salem from Los Angles.
