Sam and Dean are in a fight with a green dinosaur plushie in a pawn shop. As Sam struggles with the plushie on the floor, Dean takes out a canteen of holy oil and pours it on the plushie and ignites it, causing it to explode. A man, Alan, appears from behind the counter, asking if it is over. Sam and Dean reassure him, when in walks a business owner Jay, who asks what happened. After Sam and Dean explain that a defective product exploded, Alan offers the Winchesters whatever they want in the store. Sam attempts to politely decline, but Dean decides to grab a large flat screen TV.
Back at the Men of Letters Bunker, Sam is researching cursed objects to try and figure out what they just fought. Dean excitedly enters the library and asks Sam to come with him. After some prodding from Dean, Sam agrees and is taken to the Dean-cave -- a recreational room Dean has made in the Bunker featuring foosball, a jukebox, a bar, two La-Z-Boys, and the TV. Dean points the remote at the TV, which begins to light up purple before Sam and Dean are hit with a beam of purple light that pulls them into the TV. Quickly realizing they are cartoons, they question what happened. When Dean sees the Impala has been animated as well, he suggests to Sam they work the case and drive until they find something.
They stop at a malt shop, pull in, and park. The van next to them in the lot is not just any van -- it's the Mystery Machine from Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!. They enter the malt shop only to see the Scooby gang dancing at a jukebox. Dean named them all off. Fred, Shaggy, Daphne, Velma, and Scooby. The gang sits, Dean introduces themselves and asks if they could sit with them. Fred agrees and they sit down. Dean kisses Daphne's hand. She is his crush. The gang is talking about a Colonel Saunders has left Scooby in his will and he has to be there for the reading. Scooby had saved his life in a fish pond. And the Colonel was grateful. Dean asks if he and Sam could tag along. They were okay with that. Shaggy, Scooby, and Dean have a very large sandwich before they leave.
Parked at a traffic light. The Mystery Machine and the Impala side by side. Dean wants to race him and thinks the van is too slow. Fred driving leaves the Impala in the dust. Dean is mad and spins his tires. And they are gone. A figure in a long coat appears.
They are all at a mansion. Dean realizes the episode they are in. A Night Of Fright Is No Delight. He is excited. He's seen it a million times. The attorney introduces himself and points out those who are in the will - the relatives and Scooby Doo. He plays a vinyl record that the colonel had left his last wishes on. The instructions are that all had to stay the night in the mansion to inherit the million dollars. He mentions the mansion is haunted. Whoever was left in the morning would inherit the money. The attorney leaves with an evil long laugh. They all settle in for the night. The girls in their room and the men in theirs. Daphne rejected Dean's request to share a room. Fred, Shaggy, Scooby, Sam, and Dean are in their room. Dean is wearing a long nightshirt with a cap. Sam questions him wearing it. In the meantime the girls are talking about Dean and Sam. While they all relax in the hallway is a ghost with glowing eyes and chains. Cousin Simple is attacked from behind with a knife.
Dean is about to eat his sandwich when they all hear a scream. All run downstairs to a room where, in a bed, Cousin Simple has been stabbed and died in his bed. They all decide to look for evidence and Velma takes over the investigation. She again says she doesn't believe in ghosts. From the large window, a shadow of a man is seen. He enters the room via the window, it is Castiel. Dean introduces him to all of them as his friend.
Cas begins to tell his story of how he got there. In real life, he is seen coming down the stairs with a bag of fruit from the tree of life. No one responds to his calls. He winds up in the Dean-cave, where he sees the TV. He sees Sam and Dean on TV as cartoons. A purple energy pulls him into the television. He appears as the Impala speeds up the road.
The lights begin to flicker. Doors slam in the hallway. A ghost appears Fred runs to it, he just passes through it. The ghost leaves claw marks on the wall Scooby is in Shaggy's arms and Shaggy is in Cas's arms.
Fred finds a door and opens it to find Cosgood Creeps dead and in pieces. It is gruesome. Fred thinks they should spread out and search for clues. They all pair off. Of course, Dean is with Daphne and Fred. Sam and Velma search the attic. He gets spooked by a mannequin. Sam tells her about ghosts, demons, and monsters. She is amused by it. She has a crush on Sam. They come to a chest full of toys and ectoplasm. Suddenly, the toys begin to hurl at them. They leave quickly.
Fred, Dean and Daphne are in the library looking for clues. Dean sees a yellow book that is out of place. He pulls it out and the trap door opens, they fall into the basement. The room is dark. Fred turns on the light and they see the ghost.
Shaggy, Cas, and Scooby are walking in the mansion, the ghost is behind them. They see it and run. Cas confronts it, there are purple sparks. The Scooby Doo theme song plays at this point as the characters all run away from the ghost. They pop out of urns, where Deans tries to steal a kiss from Daphne.
After they crash into one another, they back into a room. Velma again takes over and declares she does not believe in ghosts. She see her breath, her glasses get icy as does all the glass in the room. The ghost enters the room in darkness. Fred runs toward it and is thrown to the wall. Daphne and Velma are levitated in the air. Shaggy is thrown out the window, where he is holding on to a pole outside. He falls Scooby grabs him and Cas grabs his tail. They fall to the ground. Shaggy has broken his arm. Velma puts a splint on his arm and Daphne uses Fred's ascot for a sling.
Dean tells them that ghosts are real. They have a hard time believing that. They're very upset. So Dean mentions their accomplishments from other episodes. This helps them calm down.
Dean and Sam are in the car's trunk getting weapons for their fight. Scooby and Shaggy set up an elaborate trap, with coconuts, iron chains, and a washing machine. The ghost comes in and it goes all wrong. The three of them get caught up in the trap. Plan B is to get it into the library. The ghost falls into the basement in a circle of salt. He can't get out. Then it turns into a little boy. The boy explains that when he died, his soul was tied to a pocketknife. Jay, from the pawn shop, found a way to control his spirit and use him to hurt people.
Dean asks if he can get them home, if he can he will release him from the knife. The both peek out the door and see the gang upset. They emerge telling them that Velma was right it was not a ghost. They come in to see the attorney Cosgood Creeps wrapped up in the circle of salt. Dean comes in with a suitcase with the cash, it is Confederate money -- worthless. Cas touches Shaggy's arm and heals it.
Dean says goodbye to Daphne. Cas hugs Scooby and Shaggy. Velma shakes Sam's hand then pulls him down into her arms and kisses him.
The three of them return to the room with the boy. He snaps his fingers and they are back in the Dean-cave with the TV. Dean gets a sledgehammer and destroys the television. They find the knife, Sam burns it with a blow torch and the boy disappears.
Back at the pawn shop. Alan has papers to sell his business to Jay. He hesitates at that point Dean tells him not to sign. The three of them are there. Sam tells Alan what Jay has been up to to get his property. Cas shows the pen knife and that the spirit is free now. They also mention Jay's tax evasion, at that point, the police are outside. He is arrested and taken into custody. Dean in his red ascot, like Fred's, does his Scooby Doo impression.
