Poisoned sweets? We'll wipe them out like weasels!
~ Henrietta expresing her delight on Grand High Witch's plan.

Henrietta is a witch who is one of the Grand High Witch's followers and is one of the main witches shown in the 1990 film The Witches, although she only has a minor role.

She was portrayed by Angelique Rockas.

History

Like all witches, her main hobby is murdering children, due to the fact they smell like "dog’s droppings” to her. When she goes to The Witches annual meeting at a hotel, she reveals what her true form looks like as she is bald and has scaly claws hidden by gloves.

After hearing the Grand High Witch's plan to murder every child in England by using the sweets, Henrietta tells loudly that they can use the poisoned sweets to wipe every child efficiently. However, Grand High Witch rebukes her for that as they could be easily caught by the authorities. Henrietta worries that Grand High Witch might burn her alive just like Beatrice but Grand High Witch doesn't do that and reminds her that all the Witches use the magic as they can do it. When the Grand High Witch demonstrates how her new formula 86 turns Bruno into a mouse, Henrietta is shown laughing with delight.

When the witches smell out the boy hiding in the room with them, Henrietta is one of the main witches to give chase, and then she helps Grand High Witch to use Formula 86 on him.

Henrietta meets her downfall with the other witches. Ironically they consume Formula 86 after it was put in their soup by the boy and his grandmother (who had been turned into a mouse). After being transformed into a mouse, she was slaughtered by one of the hotel staff members, believing her to be a real mouse.
