|~ Elias Kingston's threat to Mystery Inc.|
Stuart Wetherby, a.k.a. the Ghost Of Elias Kingston, is the main antagonist of the Scooby-Doo, Where Are You? episode, "What the Hex is Going On?".
He was voiced by the late John Stephenson.

As himself, Stuart was a brown-haired man with a beard who wore glasses and a maroon outfit. When he supposedly ages, his wig is white and is balding.
Powers and Abilities
Elias Kingston supposedly had the ability to age people until only their bones and empty clothes remain and would place people in a trance to draw him to his mansion. However, this was just a hoax Stuart created as part of his gambit to steal his family's fortune.
Elias was the disguise of Uncle Stuart Weatherby who wanted his relatives to bring their treasure to Kingston Mansion, so that he could steal it. He pretended that the ghost had struck him with an ageing curse after he was supposedly placed in a trance by the ghost.
When his relatives investigate the old Kingston mansion with the company of Scooby and company, they find Stuart in an aged state, after his brother went to fetch the sheriff, the voice of Elias placed Stuart in another trance. At this time, the Wetherby daughter also went missing, having been found bound and gagged soon by the ghost.
The gang follow Stuart into the mansion where they find that he was reduced to a skeleton as it was as old as someone can get, it is then where Elias Kingston confronts the gang and gave his warning about turning people old if he did not get the fortune from the Weatherby estate.
Later on, the Mystery Gang made use of equipment found in a swami shop to trick Elias multiple times until he gets caught in a net, leading to the discovery that he was Stuart who was wearing makeup and kidnapped his niece when she saw his wig get blown off.
