Witches & Sorceresses 

Wilhelmina W. Witchiepoo - An evil hook-nosed witch featured on the live-action Sid and Marty Krofft's fantasy H.R.PUFNSTUF/NBC/1969-71.

Wilhelmina W. Witchiepoo - H.R. PUFNSTUF

Miss Witchiepoo coveted a magic talking flute (called Freddie) in the possession of a young boy named Jimmy.

To obtain the flute, she lures Jimmy into a friendly talking boat which soon turns into an evil boat. Nearing Living island, the boat attacks Jimmy who then jumps overboard to save himself.

Just as Witchiepoo was about to steal Freddie the Flute, H.R. Pufnstuf, the dragon mayor of Living Island sends a rescue party to save Jimmy from Witchiepoo.

Foiled, Witchiepoo continues to hatch plans to steal the flute from Jimmy with the help of her two bumbling henchmen: Seymour (a glowing-eyed spider) and Orson (a vulture).

Meanwhile, H.R. Pufnstuf and his band of island citizens try to help Jimmy find a way off the island and back home to his own world.

H.R. PUFNSTUF THEME SONG LYRICS

H.R. Pufnstuf, who's your friend when things get rough?
H.R. Pufnstuf, can't do a little, 'cause you can't do enough

Once upon a summertime
Just a dream from yesterday
A boy and his magic golden flute
Heard a boat from off the bay
"Come and play with me, Jimmy
Come and play with me
And I will take you on a trip
Far across the sea-ee-ee"

But the boat belonged to a kooky old witch
Who had in mind the flute to snitch
From her Vroom Broom in the sky
She watched her plans materialize
She waved her wand
The beautiful boat was gone
The sky grew dark
The sea grew rough
The boat sailed on and on and on and on

Witchiepoo's Vroom Broom - H.R. PUFNSTUF
Witchiepoo's Vroom Broom

But Pufnstuf was watching, too
And knew exactly what to do
He saw the witch's boat attack
And how the boy was fighting back
He called his Rescue Racer Crew
As often they'd rehearsed
And off to save the boy they flew
But who would get there first?

But now the boy had washed ashore
Puf arrived to save the day
Which made the witch so mad and sore
She shook her fist and screamed a-waaaaaaaaaay!

H.R. Pufnstuf, who's your friend when things get rough?
H.R. Pufnstuf, can't do a little, 'cause you can't do enough
