On the comedy variety series ROWAN & MARTIN’S LAUGH-IN/NBC/1968-73, comedienne Ruth Buzzi created a frumpy, unattractive old maid character known as Gladys Ormphby who wore a hair net and sweater.
When Gladys sat on a bench in the park she was usually approached by an elderly white haired dirty old man with a mustache named Tyrone (Arte Johnson) who dressed in a long overcoat, bowler hat and carried a cane.
When he asked her a question or offered her something (usually a piece of walnetto candy) she smashed him over the head with her purse for being so fresh. A typical encounter would go something like this:
Tyrone: Would you call my face ruggedly handsome?
Gladys: [Gladys bashes him over the head with purse]
Tyrone: Would you call my body sensuously attractive?
Gladys: [Again Gladys hits him with her purse]
Tyrone: Would you call my next of kin? [Tyrone falls off bench]
Note: Both Gladys and Tyrone later appeared on the Saturday morning animated series BAGGY PANTS AND THE NITWITS/NBC/1977-79, where Tyrone was a semi-retired superhero.
