was a character
from the old Krofft series H. R. Pufnstuf
. The show was a saturday morning staple for kids
in the early 1970
's. Witchiepoo was a character who (surprise) was a witch
. In the Pufnstuf movie
(released in 1970), Witchiepoo was played by Billy Hayes.
The other (more important) manifestation of Witchiepoo is an Everything2 regular. She is a friend of Gahachino and is on my list of writers that I check daily. I suggest that you peruse some of her writeups, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.
