Episode Appearances

Season 1


Make a New Friend Thing!

Zelphaba is introduced in this episode. She is new at the school and one of the students CJ considers making her new friend. CJ greets her, and the two hold a conversation, which causes CJ to wonder if there is something Zelphaba is hiding.

When Zelphaba jokingly casts a spell on Mindy, CJ tells Fenwick and Crispo she believes Zelphaba is a witch. This rumor quickly spreads all over the school, and students confront Zelphaba about it.

After the witch rumor, she withdraws from Pootatuck to start homeschooling instead. CJ feels bad and when she sees Zelphaba again, she apologizes. Zelphaba accepts her apology, and they come up with a plan to stop the witch rumor so Zelphaba can attend Pootatuck again.


Cultural references

  • Her name is a play on the word "Elphaba," who is a witch in the Broadway play "Wicked."
  • She has lived in Salem, Massachusetts, and has been accused of being a witch by CJ. This is most likely a reference to the Salem Witch Trials of 1692.
