Wanda Grubwort was a witch from the 1800s.
Physical appearanceIn life, Wanda was a short woman with stringy hair and warts covering her face and hands, her spirit resembled her except for that it was slightly translucent with a white tinge, was smaller than a regular human, and was only her torso and head.
Wanda was a dark witch. When her land was taken she became forsaken and wretched in creating the Lake Monster of Erie Point.
Powers and abilities
- In life (and while possessing Velma) Wanda could change frogs into Lake Monsters
- She could also control her spirits through the moonstones, and posses other's bodies
- She could pull objects towards her even without her staff (at least in spirit form)
When some settlers landed on her territory she told them to leave, but they ignored her, so she put a spell on some frogs turning them to monsters. They attacked the villagers strangling one man to death. She was tried and was burned for her witchcraft, where her spirit lay in the moonstones of her staff, waiting for revenge.
Scooby-Doo! Curse of the Lake Monster
Wanda Grubwort returned when her moonstones were discovered by the gang. She possessed Velma when she touched her first moonstone and had her search for the others. Along the way, Grubwort used Velma to sabotage the gang's attempts to discover the secret of the Lake Monster, her own monster of a frog which she created years ago, who has come back to wreak havoc on Daphne's uncle's country club. Fred and Daphene find out Wanda had children. They believed that her descendants wanted revenge, Her descendant has one of the moonstones and the other was hidden in a sand trap. She took the moonstone Shaggy found and raided her descendant's house looking for the last moonstone. There, the gang learn that Grubwort is possessing Velma and her descendant helps the gang stop Grubwort for re-obtaining her power. The gang use scuba gear to get into Grubwort's underwater cave, where they see Grubwort turning three more frogs into monsters like her other monster. Fred and Daphne are chased by the monsters while Shaggy and Scooby try to help Velma fight Grubwort's spirit. It finally works when Shaggy expresses his love for Velma and they free her with the moon song. However, Grubwort was still alive as a ghost, and tries to summon her moonstone staff to her, but Scooby fetches it and destroys it, turning the frog monsters back to regular frogs and Grubwort's ghost exploded, before saying she would have gotten away with it if it wasn't for the meddling kids and their rotten dog.
