Her character "Esmerelda" was introduced on the TV-series ''Bewitched'' in 1969, after the 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 with Samantha needs a babysitter.  She is a shy bundle-of-nerves who often fades slowly away when nervous.
