Melanie Staples Culprit

Melanie is revealed to be the saboteur.

Melanie Staples is the daughter of Dr. Ned Staples.

Physical appearance

Melanie is a young Caucasian female, with blonde hair, which she wears in a ponytail. She wears a pink t-shirt and blue jean shorts. She also wore a red headband that appears to be plastic but which is actually a cybernetic control for the Mecha Mutt.


She seemed very friendly. She appeared to have an interest in Fred Jones, but this was probably an act. Inwardly, she was self-absorbed, unstable, and bent on revenge. She seemed not to care about hurting innocent bystanders.


Scooby-Doo! Mecha Mutt Menace

She first met the gang when Scooby bumped into her, causing her to be caught in Fred's trap. After getting her out, she introduces herself as Dr. Ned Staples daughter, who she invites the gang to see his invention, Mecha Mutt.

However, Mecha Mutt goes haywire, and if it isn't stopped, her dad's career, and the space program would be ruined.

He helped out the gang by taking them to meet Ned's lab assistant Irv (who has a crush on her).

She was with the gang when Mecha Mutt was stopped, and Velma exposes her as the culprit. Her headband was really a remote-control she used to control Mecha Mutt, and she had gum resin from Fred's net on the controls for the wind tunnel Shaggy and Scooby were trapped in with Mecha Mutt. Melanie confesses that she controlled Mecha Mutt for revenge on her father, who has always ignored and neglected her, never seeing how brilliant she was. She was taken away by the authorities.
