The witch is a citizen of Fairytale Village, based on the witch from Hansel and Gretel. She lives in a gingerbread house and loves candy. Unlike the original story, The witch is actually friendly to everyone she meets.
The witch is mostly pink. She wears a black hat, a long-sleeved black dress, and matching boots.
Uniqua has played the witch in one episode of The Backyardigans: "Escape from Fairytale Village" from season three.
