ya'll probably know this, but today I found out

the same actress played Big Maude the escaped convict and Eleanora Poultice, Barney's voice teacher.  Reta Shaw must have been one heck of an actress.  After all these decades of watching the show and reading all the trivia, I was shocked to find she could play two such different roles and me not know it.

Also play Mrs. Halcyon Maxwell in the Ghost And Mr. Chicken.

    • His rise to fame, after his debut at the insecticide convention, was meteoric!
