In one instance, Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle invited a little girl named, Mary Lou, who thought that dishes were aweful.

She must hurry for if the dishes aren’t quite right, the evil witch will have Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle in her power for another year.
To help Mary Lou understand what she means Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle promptly preceded to hurry through the dishes with Mary Lou’s help.
When they were finished Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle left to go upstairs, telling Mary Lou to show the evil witch their work when she came.
As soon as Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle had left, an evil witch showed up with sparkling eyes that looked a lot like Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle’s.
She checked everything, the floor, the teacups, the pans, even under the oven.
Finally she gave Mary Lou the keys to the kitchen and went back up the stairs.
