The House of the Nightmare Witch is the second episode of the second season of Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated, and twenty-eighth overall in the series.


Hot Dog Water becomes "New Daphne" as Mystery Inc. face a haunted house with chicken legs!


In Russia, a night guard is on watch inside a Russian museum. Velma and Hot Dog Water have broken into the museum and are trying to break into Baba Yaga's house while working for Mr. E When they cannot reach the house, Mr.E desides that the only option is to buy it. After they leave, the figure of Babba Yagga comes to life and attacks the guard.

After arriving in America, Curator Vronsky and his assistant are ambushed by Baba Yaga's House; snatching up the assistant.

Fred returns to school along with the others. They plan to replace Daphne with "Hot Dog Water" (her real name is Marcy). Later that night, They are driving together and receive a call from a policeman who encountered Baba Yaga, which was heading towards the woods.

After heading towards the woods, Mystery Inc. discovers the house. Velma and Marcy try to obtain entrance, but when they open the door Baba Yaga is waiting behind it. She house chases them around trying to capture them, but then crashes into a rock and the house hobbles off into the woods again, leaving behind a trail of black mysterious liquid.

After Mayor Nettles, Sheriff Stone, and the Curator Vronsky arrive, they investigate the clearing and report the incident. Velma and Marcy rush to the side to call Mr.E, whom tells them to find what is inside the house and retrieve it. Scooby overhears their conversation and tells Fred and Shaggy later at Shaggy's house.

Meanwhile, Velma and Marcy follow the trail of fluid and find the house. inside the house is an Astral Disk piece. The rest of the gang is waiting behind them and confronts Velma about Teaming up with Mr.E. After explaining her reasons, she tells the gang that they can trust her and that she only wants to protect the Disk pieces from Professor Pericles. The house later awakens and tosses them out. Baba Yaga appears and threatens the gang if they follow her again. The Disk piece was saved due to it becoming lodged in Mr. Trapples eye. They also find a piece of Faberge egg, which was clarified by Daphne; whose mother owns Faberge eggs.

Afterwards, Marcy clarifies the liquid as being a type of oil used in roller-coasters, due to her father owning an amusement park. Later, they chase the house out of the woods and into the city, where Shaggy and Scooby use a rope and the cross-bows to trip the house. After the house trips, Baba Yaga falls out and is taken into custody after being revealed as Curator Vronsky.

He had kidnapped his assistant because she was getting suspicious of his causes for wanting to take it for free to America. He brought it so he could sell stolen Faberge eggs on the Black Market. He controlled the house with switches inside his cane. After taking damage to the leg, he commanded it to run off so he could repair it but couldn't achieve this due to Mystery Inc. following him constantly.

Later Mr.E confronts Marcy about Velma double crossing him. She begs him to give her a second chance. Mr.E however, warns her that "Mystery Inc.'s days are numbered".

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities

  • Fred said in the previous episode he was only returning to capture the Crybaby Clown and then going back to search for his birth parents. Of course they failed at that, but it's possible he decided to give up on his search. In fact he doesn't even mention them and is only concerned about getting Daphne back which is ironic because he gave her up to search for them. It's possible that he's more interested in getting her back because she's something tangible and he realizes his mistake whereas his parents are impossible to locate.
