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


The guys are at the movies watching Pinocchio, where Scooby bumps into a man offering free tickets to Pleasure Island Carnival, where Scooby's nose grows after he lies and the guys start to turn into donkeys.


While watching the movie Pinocchio, Scooby goes to get popcorn, and is buried in the stuff. A shady looking man pulls him over and gives him free tickets to the Pleasure Island carnival, and tells him not to tell his friends where he got them. Little does he know that he has been placed under a curse.

At the carnival, the guys were having a blast riding the roller coaster and the Ferris Wheel. Shaggy asked Scooby where he got the tickets, and lied that he found them causing his nose to grow.

Scooby eats Shaggy's food, and when he denies it, his nose grows longer.

Shaggy and Scrappy at first can't even figure out what looks different about Scooby, until his nose hits a bulls-eye target yards away. The man appears, handing him a prize; a toy donkey, saying "You didn't think you could get something for nothing, did you!?". The gang now understands what is going on, but begins turning into donkeys, hee-hawing. Scrappy tries to attack, but the others grab him and run. The man shouts that nobody backs out of a deal, and grabs Scooby by his long nose. Scooby wakes up, still in the theater, having missed the entire movie.

As they leave the theater, Scooby sees the man from his dream offering him the tickets, but he takes off running; with Shaggy and Scrappy wondering why.
