Antagonist rock star wannabe from the downright wacky 1970 Sid and Marty Krofft TV show The Bugaloos. She lives in a giant jukebox and is constantly scheming to get a hit record, but her voice is terrible. She comes up with schemes to bite the style and harsh the mellow of band The Bugaloos, a quartet of British bugs who live in neighboring Tranquility Forest.

Played by a consistently over-the-top Martha Raye. Her bumbling henchmen were Woofer and Tweeter, who were either robots or living stereo equipment, and her German-accented chauffeur Funky Rat.

In the "If I Had the Wings of a Bugaloo" episode, she disguised herself as country/western singer Hettie Hoedown.

In the "Firefly, Light My Fire" episode, her flunkies have gotten The Mop Heads to back her up.
