Go Ask Dallas : Lafayette called Marnie " Witchie - Poo" sounds familiar , why ??

Q Dallas Lafayette said to Marnie last night "Witchie-Poo, you have royally fucked us" that sounds familiar where have I heard " Witchie - Poo" ?

A You know that name from HR Pufnstuff  - Lafayette isn't old enough to remember it but Alan Ball sure is.

H.R. Pufnstuf was a children's television series produced by Sid and Marty Krofft in the United States. It was the first Krofft live-action, life-size puppet program. The seventeen episodes were originally broadcast September 6, 1969 to September 4, 1971. The broadcasts were successful enough that NBC kept it on the Saturday morning schedule for a full three seasons, until August 1972, when it was cancelled.

One of the main charcaters was : Wilhelmina W. Witchiepoo (played by Billie Hayes) who rode on a broomstick-like vehicle called the Vroom Broom.
