Many performers have helped solidify the idea of the wicked witch in popular culture. Most might think of Margaret Hamilton from the Wizard of Oz or the Evil Queen from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, but others have also made an impact on the world.
One of these was Billie Hayes who passed away this week. (See her obituary from Variety.)
She was, perhaps, best known for her role as Witchiepoo in the Sid and Marty Krofft show H. R. Puffnstuff, entertaining generations of fans with her comic antics.
But Hayes also portrayed other witches over the years, including one on an episode of Bewitched.
