One of the most accomplished scene-stealers in the history of TV comedy, Ghostley perfected a dithering manner and a flustered, hesitant style of line delivery. A regular on "The Jonathan Winters Show", "The Julie Andrews Hour" and "The Golddiggers", she played recurring or supporting roles on such comedies as "Mayberry R.F.D.", "Car 54, Where Are You?" and, perhaps most memorably, "Bewitched", where her incompetent babysitting witch Esmeralda constantly conjured up one sitcom disaster after another. Ghostley busied herself in feature films during the late 70s and later made a triumphant return to TV comedy in the 80s as Bernice, the human non sequitur, on "Designing Women".
