I think most of the world knew her as Wichie-Poo from HR Puffnstuff. I know I did. I grew up in the 70s and she was an iconic character. Fast forward to 1981 and Billie Hayes created another great character -- Agent O'Reilly, who was Scorpio's mentor. One of the things I remember most is that she never once made me see Wichie-Poo come through in her performance. She thoroughly submersed into this character. I always thought throughout this storyline that she was Robert's mother. Did anyone else? I was waiting for the reveal at the end but it never came. She passed away on April 29 at the age of 96.
Tristan had a few words to say about his costar. Do you remember this storyline? And Billie's portrayal of O'Reilly?
