Yes! And every time she zipped off anywhere, a flurry of bobby pins would
clatter to the floor. They didn't use enough of her in the early cartoons.

However, there are too many things about the Baba Yaga that already make her
a facinating fun character already. The mortar she rides, driven by the
pestle, and her tracks covered by the broom. The hut on rooster legs. The
three horsemen of dawn, day, and night. Egads... So much to remember!

All the same, it'd be fun to build a story around Witch Hazel.
