Later Ghostley's character "Esmerelda" was introduced as a regular on the series in 1969, after the May 1968 death of [[Marion Lorne]], the actress who played the lovable-but-befuddled "Aunt Clara". The studio wanted another comedic-actress to be introduced to the series to replace her, but in a different role.  Esmerelda is typically summoned when Samantha needs a babysitter.  She is a shy bundle-of-nerves who often fades slowly away when nervous.  When she isn't nervous her spell-casting is often very good, but when she is nervous all havoc breaks loose.</td></tr></table>
