—Ma Kettle on Birdie Hicks
Birdie Hicks is a well-respected resident of Cape Flattery, Washington. Usually active in local politics and community affairs, Hicks is a snobby and austere spinster who greatly despises Ma and Pa Kettle and their fifteen children.
Council member careerEdit
As a council member, Hicks tried to get the town council to condemn the Kettle Farm (the residence of the Kettle family) but was unsuccessful in doing so because the Kettles had won a model home-of the-future and were therefore moving out of the farm.
