What a delightful talent! I remember her fondly from her performances on "General Hospital". She was a great addition to that show, and she had an enormous range that was so evident there. Thank you, Billie! RIP

In just a small clip of her playing Witchiepoo, we can see so much energy, happiness, and talent. I'm very happy she lived a long life and brought joy to us all. Love, a kid from the 70's and 80's.

I still love Witchiepoo’s song “ porange who says; orange porange who says.....
Who says there ain’t no rhyme for Oranges”
To this day it reminds me that.....”there ain’t no rhyme for oranges”. (nor silver for that matter). Rest in peace.

Not only was H.R. PufnStuf a great show, the subliminal message was outstanding as well . Green mayor with red hair , talking flutes , etc etc .The theme song said it all . H.R. Pufnstuf , who's your friend when things get rough ? H.R. pufnstuf , you can't get a little and you can't get enough " . RIP Billie Hayes . You are now with the maker of the plants and the grasses and he seeded herbs , and I can picture you with the grin on your face , and It makes me smile . I toast a " pufnstuf " to you .

I adored this wonderful talented generous woman. She was the best friend you could ask for and that would have been enough for me to love her very much. BUT her devotion and love for animals made her PERFECT in my eyes. I will keep her in my heart forever.
