In the Greek islands, the kids head for Cyclops Island, to find the legendary Mask of Medusa with Professor Mikos. But it seems that Thaddeus Blimp, a master villain, wants the mask too, and he plans to turn all the world leaders and his enemies, including Scooby, to stone.
The gang are heading for the exotic Greek islands for a vacation, and to do a story on the mask of Medusa, a mythological creature who can turn people to stone with a single look. The mask is said to have the same ability. On their way to their destination Cyclops Island, they sailed by Blimp Island, home to the international arch-fiend Thaddeus Blimp. Thaddeus's assistant Wilmer informed his master of Scooby's arrival. Thaddeus decided that it's time to make his move, scheming to add the mask of Medusa to his treasures and plans to use it to turn all the world leaders and enemies to stone, including Scooby-Doo.
Upon arriving on Cyclops Island, the gang met up Professor Mikos who's agreed to help them.
They followed him inside the Fortress of the Cyclops, but got separated not long after entering. While wandering they found a statue of the Cyclops, only it wasn't a statue, it was alive. While trying to escape the monster, they stumbled into a room filled with life-like statues of people, and found a statue that looks like Professor Mikos apparently turned to stone. Scrappy took a picture of a tablet on the wall, which caused it to fall and shatter. But, they were able to examine the writing on it with the picture he took. It's written in ancient Greek, but Scrappy used his watch translator to figure out what it says. It reads "The Mask of Medusa is beneath the fountain in the Cave of the Cyclops on Cyclops Mountain. Right after he finishes, the Cyclops finds them, warning them to never go there. They ran into a dead end, but Scrappy used the Mikos statue to ram through the wall, giving the others a way out. They ended up in the Taverna next door to the fortress. They met the owner Anna, who's shocked to learn that the gang were chased by the Cyclops and that the statue is Professor Mikos. In the kitchen, Thaddeus and Wilmer disguised themselves as waiters, hoping to get good info from the gang. They overheard the gang talking to Wilma about the Cave of the Cyclops where the mask is said to be hidden. Before they could escape unnoticed, Scooby went to ask them if they could make Greek pizzas, blowing their cover in the process. The gang immediately leaves for the cave hoping to get there before Thaddeus. On their way out, Shaggy and Scooby ran into the Cyclops again, but were able to escape.
The gang found their way into the Cave of the Cyclops, and discovered the fountain. Before they could get the mask, the Cyclops finds them, and Thaddeus Blimp reveals that the Cyclops works for him. Shaggy and Scooby are at the mercy of the Cyclops, but Scrappy came to their rescue by jumping on the monster's head covering it's eye. Unable to see, the Cyclops falls backwards into the fountain shattering it. The mask of Medusa is found upon the rubble, and Blimp grabs it, but upon looking through the mask, no one turned to stone. Believing it to be a fake, he discards it to Scooby, who proceeds to examine it with the flashlight. However, the light from he flashlight shot through the mask turning everyone but Scooby into stone, much to Scooby's horror. Fortunately, Anna arrives and instructs Scooby to shine the light through the other way of the mask, turning everyone back to normal. However, the statue of Professor Mikos wasn't effected, because he was being the Cyclops. Daphne knew the statue of the Mikos wasn't Mikos himself, because the statue didn't have hair, but the Professor does. He tried to scare them off the trail by making it look like he turned to stone. Anna reveals that she really works for Greek Secret Intelligence, and the Taverna was just a cover. They've been trying to capture Thaddeus for years. Thaddeus takes advantage of the conversation to get away with the mask, but before he and Wilmer could escape, they surrendered when they saw what they thought to be the real Cyclops who was really Scooby and Scrappy wearing the costume.
