Punk Rock Scooby is the second part of the fifth episode of the second season of The Richie Rich/Scooby-Doo Show.


The guys are attending a punk rock concert when Plutonian, a Scrappy look-a-like alien, spots them and believes they are holding Scrappy prisoner, and he plans to set him free.


The scene is a punk rock contest. A spaceship flies in overhead, and its pilot, a Plutonian, is a little tyke who looks like Scrappy, even down to the Devo style pyramid hat he's wearing to the show. The alien sees him with Shaggy and Scooby and radios back to his planet that a fellow Plutonian is being held prisoner by a couple of "monsters".

Scrappy steps away for a moment, and the Plutonian confronts Scooby and Shaggy, who of course, think he's Scrappy. He even talks like him, calling "Plutonian power" and threatening them with a "space splat". He shoots rays at them from his hat. The rays also bring inanimate objects to life, which come after Shaggy and Scooby. They grab him and run as he tries to shoot them.

Suddenly, Shaggy and Scooby see two Scrappys. The Plutonian turns a camera and hat rack into monsters. Shaggy and Scooby grab the real Scrappy and run behind a curtain, winding up on stage. They have been registered in the contest as "Scooby and the Splats". Not knowing how to play, they are getting booed. (Scrappy: "Nobody boos my Uncle Scooby...Aw, they don't know real talent!").

The alien zaps Scooby's heavy metal guitar, which begins playing itself. Scooby winds up in a drum which the alien zaps, and it beats on Scooby. (Scrappy wants to know who's the "punk rocker muscling in on our act"). He next zaps the whole stage, causing all the instruments to play themselves. The crowd loves it, and it is a real blast.

At first, Scrappy wants to "give him a taste of puppy power", but then makes friends with him. They have won the contest, and are awarded with a trophy. Scrappy teaches the alien that Scooby is his uncle, and Shaggy is his friend. Wanting to know what such relationships are, he brings the trophy to life, and flies off with it. Says Shaggy: "I think he deserves it more than we do". The trophy shouts "Scooby Dooby Doo!"
