The Mystery Inc. gang are in a covert operation in Elvira's Halloween of Horrors Parade in Crystal Cove to capture the Haunted Scarecrow. The gang unmasks the Haunted Scarecrow as Dr. Jonathon Crane, a former escapee convict of Arkham Asylum. While Velma explains how she solved the mystery by tracing a fan mail sent to Elvira by Crane and measuring gas leakage in air, gas drones carrying fear gas canisters set up by Crane appears in the sky. As everyone starts panicking, Scooby-Doo and Shaggy shoot down the drones by using Halloween candies as projectiles. Before being pulled away by the federal agents, Dr. Crane tells Velma that his drones did not leak, thereby giving a hint that she missed something in her reasoning. Nevertheless, the mystery gang is hailed as heroes by everyone, including the Sheriff for drawing an end to the hauntings.
The gang finds out that the Mystery Machine was severely damaged while chasing Dr. Crane and Fred is visibly upset. Meanwhile, Scooby and Shaggy go to trick or treat as they think the mystery is solved. On the way, they come across a stray disabled drone in a pumpkin patch with "Tot AlLi Frame" engraved on it and a truck full of toxic waste. The pumpkins coming in contact with the mixture of toxic waste and Dr. Crane's fear formula turn to animated monsters. Smaller pumpkins start flying and starts chasing Scooby and Shaggy. They quickly return back to town and interrupt an ongoing interview of the other Mystery Inc. gang members to inform about the 'Jackal Lanterns' of the pumpkin patch. Unfortunately, nobody seems to believe them and are being chided for their actions by Daphne.
Fred and Velma are approached by Bill Nye, who gifts them a modernized vehicle named 'Mystery Machine X'. Fred is not so enthusiastic about it as he prefers the old Mystery Machine. The Jackal Lanterns then come into the town and takes a female reporter with them. As Fred and Velma reach her, they see her being eaten and spit out by the Jackal Lanterns' giant master to become another monster herself. The Jackal Lanterns start chasing everybody, resulting in a long car chase. The gang becomes separated into three groups: Fred, Velma, and Bill Nye in Mystery Machine X, Daphne and Elvira in Elvira's car and Shaggy and Scooby with a father-daughter duo called Mike and Michelle. They come across the Sheriff, who freaks out and is gobbled up by the Giant Jackal Lantern. Velma frees Dr. Crane from the federal agents' truck, but he too is apparently eaten by the Giant Jackal Lantern.
The Mystery Inc. gang comes together with Elvira, Mike, and Michelle and eats Scooby-Snacks to enter Velma's mind palace, an imaginary plane where the recount the night's events. Velma takes a leap of faith where she enters the Giant Jackal Lantern's mouth and comes out unharmed. As it turns out, the Giant Jackal Lantern is actually just a machine and everyone eaten are safe inside. The rest of the Jackal Lanterns are revealed drones, though both the Sheriff and Dr. Crane are missing. The drone engraving found by Scooby and Shaggy is revealed to be "T.O.T. Aluminum Lithium Frame." The culprit is eventually revealed to be Toe Omnitech head Cutler Toe, who has been impersonating the Sheriff and was after the lithium mine in Crystal Cove after being released from jail. Velma and Daphne find out his location by trailing hologram of the Jackal-lantern and ultimately captures him where after the federal agents take him away. The gang is invited to another roadside Halloween celebration as Elvira gives a monologue and breaks the fourth wall by revealing a spidery face behind her regular face in an ode to Halloween.
