Hothouse Scooby is the second part of the sixth episode of the second season of The Richie Rich/Scooby-Doo Show.


The guys have their own business called Three S Gardening Services and encounter a strange customer who hires them to feed his hungry plants with their own lives.


The Three S Gardening Service sees an unkempt garden that could use their service. They go to the house and encounter the owner, a strange man, who himself looks like a vegetable. He says his gardeners all keep disappearing. The gang takes the job, saying they won't disappear, but the man says "Oh, really?!"

Behind their backs, he reveals that he hires gardeners to be food for his hungry pet plant creatures. Scooby first notices something strange when a fly trap tries to eat him. Shaggy, wonders why he's imitating one, until he notices they are surrounded by man-eating plants. Scrappy sprays them with weed killer, and then the man appears and begins chasing them himself.

They first hide in flower pots disguised as plants, and then run into a forest of monster trees, which rain their fruits on them. Scooby creates a delicious sundae. They get fat, and an army of plants is coming after them.

Scrappy, disguised as Tarzan, swings in to rescue Shaggy and Scooby (he accidentally grabs a plant first). He then feeds them fruit from the ground, making them sick,and allowing them to escape.
