Scary Godmother has not only been seen in comics, but also on stage and screen. In 2001, there were 26 performances of The Scary Godmother at The Athenaeum Theater in Chicago! That play was subsequently adapted into The Scary Godmother Holiday Spooktakular for The Cartoon Network. In fact it proved so popular that a request for another adaptation of a Scary Godmother story came her way and The Revenge of Jimmy was also brought to animated life! Jill worked closely with director Zeke Norton on each show and not only co-wrote the screenplay but also provided all character designs, many background paintings as well as art for a flash animated sequence! She was even able to do a voice at the voice record!
