'DOO THE FRIGHT THING'
When the popular Mystery Inc. team - Fred, Daphne, Velma, Shaggy and Scooby-Doo – attend the unveiling of a museum dedicated to their exploits, they soon find themselves involved in a dastardly scheme perpetrated by a strange masked villain. The baddie plans to take control of the city of Coolsville with the aid of his diabolical ‘Monster Machine’, a device capable of recreating our five heroes’ most infamous foes, including the Black Knight, the 10,000 Volt Ghost, the Creeper and Captain Cutler. The gang sets out to unravel the mystery surrounding the identity of the masked man, but their reputation becomes tarnished thanks to beautiful television reporter Heather Jasper-Howe. With their popularity at an all-time low, can the quirky quintet trap the villain and bring him to justice before he and his monsters can wreak havoc on the population of Coolsville…?
