I didn`t know anything about H.R Pufnstuf until I saw Season 2 of Goliath on Amazon. I think I would have loved it and this is easily the greatest witch name in history. RIP Billie.

I'm sorry, to hear, see, and read this.  She will be missed, and remembered.  My condolences, to her family, and friends.  R.I.P., Billie.

Huge fan here of all the Syd and Marty Kroft shows, HR Puffinstuff included.  Witchiepoo was a great character.
