Scooby and the Beanstalk is the third part of the seventh episode of the second season of The Richie Rich/Scooby-Doo Show.


The guys are hungry and pick beans, but when a heavy rain comes they drop the beans and a stalk grows in its place, carrying them up to a giants house where they find "food heaven".


The gang has picked beans for dinner. It begins to rain, and they run into the Mystery Machine, but the pail of beans gets submerged in a puddle. Shaggy tosses them out and says "Maybe we'll dream about food", as they all turn in for the night hungry.

As they sleep, a beanstalk grows carrying the Mystery Machine into the sky. Shaggy realizes they were magic beans. They see a huge castle on a cloud, and they are able to slip under the door. Scrappy, on the table, throws down a strand of spaghetti as a rope for the others to climb, and they find "food heaven".

Enter the giant who shouts "Fe fi to fum, I smell the blood of a cowardly dog". Scrappy shouts "Nobody calls my uncle Scooby a coward!", and pushes him in the giant's face. He is about to have them for dinner and demands entertainment from his caged bird. When his Groucho Marx routine fails to make him laugh, he scares the poor bird out of his wits.

Scrappy challenges, jumping onto the food he was eating, and the giant drops it. Next, they play the shell game under three giant cups, but the giant quickly catches them under the middle one, and demands them to make him laugh. They go into a comedy routine as "the Doos Brothers", and cause even the bird to laugh.

The giant is soon asleep, and they run to escape, but Scrappy runs back to rescue the bird, and the cage falls over into the giant's lap, waking him. Scrappy attacks, and they run through the giants head, closing his eyelids like shades. He wakes up again and chases them, but the gang drives down the beanstalk. The giant falls, and the bird tickles him. Shaggy says, "Leave 'em laughing".
