Sometimes her plans to do this include Smurfs, which she has masqueraded as twice in the cartoon series (once as Snorty Smurf and another time as Grandma Smurfette). As her name suggests, Hogatha snorts like a pig when she talks or laughs. She rides around on a pet vulture that she calls Harold. Hogatha's favorite holiday is Halloween when she loves to scare children.
In a few episodes, Hogatha claims to have multiple lives, one of which was destroyed when the Smurfs destroyed the magic locket she owned in "Bewitched, Bothered, And Be-Smurfed" which was the source of her magical powers.
