|A haunting need for images|
Needed: Main image.
One night in a forest, the Mystery, Inc. team is camping. Shaggy and Scooby-Doo are hungry. Daphne asks them to get more firewood. Scooby-Doo ends up pulling the antlers of a moose. Apparently, they had never seen a moose before. Just then, Shaggy and Scooby hear strange laughing. They spot Joker and Penguin taking Professor Flakey into the forest. They end up getting caught by accident by Batman and Robin.
Batman and Robin explain what has happened and decide to let the Mystery, Inc. team help. Fred, Daphne, and Velma are confused at what has happened, and Shaggy remembers a cave he saw earlier. Unfortunately, there is a hollow log in the road, and a dryad is trying to scare them. That dryad is really the Joker in disguise. When Shaggy and Scooby end up missing, Fred, Daphne, and Velma inform Batman about what has happened. When they reach a covered bridge, they encounter more trouble. Penguin is under the bridge disguised as a troll. He turns a handle which turns the bridge sending the kids back to their campsite. Batman and Robin investigate. Meanwhile, Penguin in his troll disguise scares Shaggy and Scooby. Joker keeps turning the bridge until he sees the Bat-Copter. Scooby-Doo saves Fred, Daphne, and Velma just in time.
The team arrives at the cave. At first, it does not look like much, but when Shaggy ends up tripping on a rock and crashing through a revolving door, they see that it is being used. Fred, Daphne, Velma are spooked by robot bat only to be rescued by the Dynamic Duo. They try to stop Joker and Penguin from escaping but fail. They notice Shaggy and Scooby are missing having been scared into a boat earlier. When they return, Professor Flakey is with them.
Flakey tells them that he told the villains that his new invention, a flying suit, was at the Hillside Aircraft Company in Gotham City. He lied though. It is really at the Gotham Rubber Factory. When everyone gets out of the cave, they find out that the Bat-Copter has been stolen.The Mystery Inc. team heads to Gotham Rubber. The team is fascinated by the balloons for the Gotham City Thanksgiving Day Parade which is tomorrow. Professor Flakey shows the team his flying suit just as Joker and Penguin arrive.
A fight breaks out in the factory involving tires and beach balls. Scooby tries on the flying suit and ends up flying. Scooby learns to control the flying suit just in time for him and Shaggy to be rescued by the Dynamic Duo and Joker and Penguin to be caught by a balloon that resembles Batman. Joker and Penguin have a falling-out while Penguin accidentally activates the flying suit. Scooby shows off while saying "Scooby-Dooby-Doo".

- The is the last official animated appearances of Batman, Robin, Joker, and Penguin. They do, however, appear in a segment of the Batman: The Brave and the Bold episode, Bat-Mite Presents: Batman's Strangest Cases!, as an homage to the team-ups that occured, and a revival of sorts of The New Scooby-Doo Movies has happened in DC Comics' Scooby-Doo! Team-Up, which also expands the DC universe, beyond just what happens in Gotham City.
- In reality, a Dryad is a female tree spirit from Greek mythology.
