My dear wonderful Billie Hayes has died. Sadly I only got to work with her on GH but it was a magical relationship. Right away Gloria Monty saw something unique and ran with it. I cannot tell you how her passing saddens me.
Rest in Peace Billie Hayes (April 11, 1925 – April 29, 2021), an American television, film, and stage actress and voice actor, well known for her comic portrayal of Witchiepoo on H.R. Pufnstuf. https://t.co/iGhHCWdupK
#RIP Billie Hayes. Best known as Witchiepoo on the bizarro Sid & Marty Krofft TV show "H.R. Pufnstuf" (1969). Hayes replaced Charlotte Rae as Mammy Yokum in ""Li'l Abner" on Broadway in 1958 , recreating the role in the 1959 film version. Clip is from the 1970 "Pufnstuf" movie https://t.co/wkAnqm8Gnj
Farewell and godspeed to the astonishing Wilhelmina W. Witchiepoo (and to Broadway's Billie Hayes, as well).
I trust she's haunting the Celestial Ether in search of additional rhymes for "oranges."
Billie Hayes — RIP — was thrilled when she worked in witch garb alongside Margaret Hamilton for "The Paul Lynde Halloween Special." She confessed Hamilton had told her SHE was HER favorite witch of all time. Imagine! https://t.co/7yfSIcpCiohttps://t.co/leAtZWa8sW
#RIP actress Billie Hayes, 96. She played Wilhelmina W. Witchiepoo on 'H.R. Pufnstuf,' Weenie the Genie on 'Lidsville' and Mammy Yokum in 'Li'l Abner.' I'll bet she was lots of fun to be around! https://t.co/dsZXyLQzuy
