Venus McFlytrap debuted in the cartoon series in the Volume 3 TV special "Why Do Ghouls Fall in Love?", which premiered on February 12, 2012. She is voiced by Julie Maddalena Kliewer in the English version of the cartoon.
Venus picks some of them up and puts them in the appropriate trashcan. She tries to convince Manny to be as considerate with his trash, but he considers it too much trouble. When she tries to encourage Heath to recycle, he refuses. Venus user her pollen persuasion powers to change his tune, but she understands he's only one among billions she needs to convince to take care of the environment.
While talking with a tree outside, Abbey and Frankie overhear and offer to help. The trio goes to see Cleo, because as the most popular girl at Monster High, her popularity allows her to influence the students in a way none of them can. Though Cleo wants to help, but thinks that associating herself with trash would sooner harm her popularity than boost the will to recycle in the other students. She elaborates they need to make recycling seem cool, to which Clawdeen suggests a fashion show.
The girls get to work recycling trash into fashionable dresses, and with the help of some friends they turn the creepateria into a fashion hall. Heath hosts the show, which easily sways the students' mindset on recycling. At the end of the show, the trash in the creepateria is all sorted in the appropriate trashcans, and Venus is happy.
Venus rushes across school to request various objects from her friends: bandages from Cleo, distilled water from Lagoona, and a thermometer from Abbey and Frankie. Curious, the four girls follow Venus to discover she needs the items to nurse a sick tree. And not just any tree, but the oldest, still-living tree at Monster High. Venus confides that something is wrong with his roots, but she doesn't know how to help him. Frankie suggests they ask around for someone who does know how to help a dying tree, which reminds Venus of Mother Nature.
The group, sans Cleo, go to a quiet pond in the middle of a forest so Venus can communicate with Mother Nature. The old entity imparts that Venus and her friends are to recall their good memories of the tree and love it back to life. The girls immediately call Cleo and get her to gather the entire student body around the tree.
The students are initially skeptical about their need to be there for the tree, until Venus reminds them that the tree symbolizes their history. Spectra remembers the great stories she wrote under the tree, Manny notes he lost five soccer balls to the tree's branches, Ghoulia thinks back on all the times she studied under the tree, and Draculaura and Clawd recall how the tree was part of their first date. As the students share their individual experiences with the tree, his roots plunge back into the soil and leaves sprout from his branches. With no doubt that the tree has been revitalized, the students celebrate.
Venus is among the friends who are tasked with performing Mr. Where's play on Monster High's history to celebrate the school's bicentennial. She is also among the friends who travel with Frankie back to 1814 and meet, unknown to them at the time, Frankie's grandfather, Victor Frankenstein, known by his nickname Sparky, and Hexiciah Steam, Robecca's father. When Sparky damages the time portal before they jump in to return to 2014, due to having jumped in together with Clawdeen, Venus and Clawdeen are accidentally fused together into the freaky fused hybrid, Clawvenus, with access to Venus' powers over plants, but a physical appearance of a cross between both ghouls in clothes, hair, everything. After Frankie turns to the hybrid students for help, Bonita Femur becomes Clawvenus' tutor to help her gain better control of her powers through meditation. Clawvenus soon becomes a prisoner of Sparky's Creation 4.0 when it attacks her and the other freaky fused hybrids of Frankie's friends. When Frankie uses her own life force to electrocute and deactivate Creation 4.0, Clawvenus is freed and defused back into Clawdeen and Venus, but her actions fatally drain Frankie, and she dies soon after.
Using her good times she had with Frankie, Venus is able to help revive her. Afterwards, she helps finish the play on Monster High's history, and welcomes Avea and the other hybrids to Monster High with open arms.
Catrine, Cleo, Venus, Jane and Jinafire are getting ready for the Gloom and Bloom Dance, trying on outfits and making them. When Jane is trying in her outfit she claims that it would be better if her hair wasn't so monstruous. Jinafire replies that it is her tail that is too long. This leads to Catrine saying her ears aren't pointy enough and Venus wishes her complexion was greener. Opposing, Cleo belives that she is too beautiful. Marisol, who has been hearing the ghoul's, tells them to be quiet and stop worrying about their 'imperfections', so loudly it scares the ghouls. Cleo asks her if she had never wanted to change something about her aesthetic and Marisol, embarassed, tells them the story of how, before, she was unsure about the size of her feet and tried to hide them from everyone, especially from this Bigfoot boy, Sam Squatch, who she is trying to impress. She looks in the internet for solutions, and finds a pair of shoes that will make your feet 3 sizes larger! The ghouls are suprised that Marisol was ashamed of how small her feet are, since they are gigantic compared to theirs. Marisol continues the story by telling them she had spent all her guinea piggy bank savings on the shoes, but when she tried them on, she fell of how big they were on her. Sam, who saw everything, helps her out and asks her for a dance. They dance happily and Marisol tells the ghouls that he liked her for who she was, regardless of how she looked.
The next day, the ghouls meet Marisol in the halls and thank them for their wise words in order to make them love theirselves more. Cleo seems to have missunderstood the message, since she comes in the halls wearing gigantic shoes like Marisol's. She trips and her friends help her out, laughing with her.
Adventures of the Ghoul Squad
The Ghoul Squad are helping Frankie and Venus find some music for their science project, where they plan to test if monster plants can actually respond to music. While searching, Clawdeen discovers a story about a musical ghost being sighted in a set of caverns. Suspecting it may be a new monster to rescue, the ghouls head off, while Frankie and Venus continue with their project.
Frankie and Venus are trying to stimulate a monster plant with music, but the plant fails to respond. Frankie accidentally plays some heavy metal music, and the plant suddenly comes to life, and starts headbanging to the beat. Frankie tries to play some other music, but the plant snatches her phone away.
The group return to the school, where they discover loud rock music blaring, and the now giant-sized monster plant tossing Frankie and Venus around. Operetta plays her guitar to distract the plant, allowing Frankie to switch the music off. Unfortunately, Operetta finds she's stuck entertaining the plant for a while...

Their first setback lies in picking the name of the band with Venus wanting it to be Thunder and Frightening and everyone else something else. The band settles for Howling Thunder and Frightening featuring Raythe and Deuce and the Rolling Bones and Woolee, then gets in a fight over the kind of music they'll compose, which Venus wants to be goth rock. Once more, they settle for everything at once, leading to the creation of "Electrified" in which Venus and Silvi play guitar and provide backup vocals.Venus is one of the first to befriend
