Margaret Hamilton aka The Wicked Witch from The Wizard of Oz stopped by Mister Rogers’ place to gently assure all the children that she isn’t REALLY a witch, that she was an actress in a movie that definitely wasn’t real, and that she was just playing dress-up. Then she and Mister Rogers talk a little bit about make-believe and how it’s OK for both girls AND boys to dress up like a witch, all while she’s putting on her iconic costume, and keeping up a gentle, sotto-voiced patter about her grandchildren so as not to alarm any kids who might still be afraid. Very sweet, and it really hits home what a void there is in children’s television without Mister Rogers. Watch below.
