Born on this date: Margaret Hamilton

Margaret Hamilton as Granny Frump

Margaret Hamilton was born 111 years ago today.

Everyone knows Hamilton for her most famous role as the Wicked Witch in The Wizard of Oz. But did you know she appeared on The Addams Family as Morticia’s mother, Granny Frump? She really is perfect for this role. And in this episode, it’s Granny Frump’s birthday too! Check it out.

Margaret Hamilton in “Happy Birthday, Grandma Frump,” The Addams Family (1966)

Return of the Wicked Witch

I originally posted this video of the Paul Lynde Halloween Special for Margaret Hamilton’s birthday (she guest stars and reprises her Wizard of Oz role as the Wicked Witch), but it’s even more appropriate today. I suggest you sit back and watch this tonight instead of that tired old Peanuts special. And those pesky trick-or-treaters can just wait ’til you’re done. Happy Halloween!

The Paul Lynde Halloween Special (Oct. 29, 1976)

If you like cheesy 1970s entertainment, this is not to be missed. The cast includes not only Lynde and Hamilton, but Billie Hayes (Witchiepoo from H.R. Pufnstuf), Florence Henderson, Betty White, Donny and Marie, Tim Conway, KISS, Roz “Pinky Tuscadero” Kelly, and other celebrities of the day. See Witchiepoo and the Wicked Witch of the West together at the 11-minute mark.
