Damn, for a sec I thought you were talking about a certain Bellagio housekeeper who claimed to be a Southern Witch at some point and stalked George Clooney.

All because of the cunt OP of the "Witches Still Necessary?" Thread last week.

I loved her. She seemed like she'd be a hoot in real life.

I’m usually pretty current with “old” pop culture, but a lot of things surprised me reading this article about her passing:
1. I didn’t realize she had still been living.
2. I was unaware she had been 96!
3. I thought H R. Pufinstuf ran a lot longer than one year. I watched it all the time as a kid, but IMDB says there were only 17 episodes.
She was brilliant as Witchiepoo. Just perfect in the role. Poor Jack Wild only lived to 53, but she outlived him by more than 40 years. RIP, Miss Hayes.

I had no idea she was still with us.
And yes, I also clicked on this thread because it immediately made me think of D-vida.

For those to young too get my allusion in R7, and at her best being crazy AF. By the way, I don’t think I noticed before that Pufnstuf had a lazy eye before? Was that just this episode or always?

Wasn’t she a huge animal rights advocate?

Are you thinking of Witch Hazel and her bobby pins from the Bugs (and Daffy) versions?

R19 fuck, you're right, I somehow attached that to Witchiepoo

Billie was practically operatic with that cackle - such an array of notes and strength and sustained power!

Tristian Rogers posted a really nice tweet about working with her on General Hospital. It's the only time I recall seeing her on a TV show where she wasn't in heavy makeup.
I'm having a glass of Yokum Berry tonic in her honor.

What a trippy show.

Yes, she played O'Reilly on General Hospital, Robert Scorpio's sidekick/girl Friday when he debuted on the show in 1981.

She was great on Pufnstuf! I loved that show. :-(
R28 I didn't know she was on GH!

[quote][R28] I didn't know she was on GH!
Few people realized that the person playing O'Reilly on General Hospital also played Witchiepoo since she wasn't wearing heavy makeup.
When she was airing on GH in 1981, there wasn't much publicity about the fact she had played Witchiepoo. Some, but not a lot. These days, the headlines would have be screaming "Witchiepoo to play Scorpio sidekick."

It never occurred to me how great the design for the character if Witchiepoo was. A perfect balance between the traditional fairy tale witch and a traditional circus clown.
But it would never have worked without her in the role.

Loathed Witchiepoo and the show. Gave me nightmares and it still makes my stomach sick to think of it.
However, RIP. I’m sure she was very talented and brought joy to many.

Slightly off topic - but Cass Elliot slays that song.

Pufnstuff kept airing in reruns for several years so it certainly seemed like more than 17 episodes were produced. Wikipedia says:
[quote]The seventeen episodes were originally broadcast from September 6, 1969, to December 27, 1969. The broadcasts were successful enough that NBC kept it on the Saturday morning schedule until August 1972.
[quote]Reruns of the show aired on ABC Saturday morning from September 2, 1972, to September 8, 1973, and on Sunday mornings in some markets from September 16, 1973, to September 8, 1974. It was syndicated by itself from September 1974 to June 1978 and in a package with six other Krofft series under the banner Krofft Superstars from 1978 to 1985.

No husband or children? Survived by niece and nephews. She must not have found the right guy.
