The film takes place in Coolsville, Ohio and begins as the cast is introduced on the school bus. As Shaggy walks down the aisle, one of the school’s jocks trips him. Fred, sitting next to him, asks him why he does it everyday. Shaggy tries sitting next to Velma and Daphne, but eventually sits by himself. At school, Shaggy’s trouble trying to get his locker door open results in him falling in a trashcan and rolling into the Principal’s office. The Principal suggests that Shaggy try to find some friends and sayaecide to take up a hobby like his: philately (stamp collecting).

Meanwhile, the Great Dane named Scoobert has been put up for adoption repeatedly at the monthly Pet Adoption fair, but never met with success. After the Adoption Fair, Scoobert is put in a small cage in a back of a truck. As the truck is driving down the road, it hits a bump and Scoobert falls out, gets out of the cage, and begins to wander around. As he is wandering through a graveyard, a strike of lightning resurrects a pair of ghosts named Ezekiel Gallows & Prudence Prufrock from their tombstones at the Cemetery. This frightens him, causing him to dash across town. He leaps into the first house he can find, which turns out to be Shaggy’s. They instantly become great friends, and Shaggy nicknames the dog “Scooby”.

In the final scene, Velma tells the gang about “strange goings-on” at the museum she heard about, and they all agree to get on the case once again. As the credits begin, scenes used during the opening intro to Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! and What’s New, Scooby-Doo? are recreated by the gang while the opening theme song to “What’s New Scooby-Doo” is playing.

Cliff Vandercave, the Executive Vice President of Industrial Procurement at Slate & Co., plans to appoint a Vice President of his division to frame for a crime. To find one, he makes an exam to give to the quarry operators, among whom are Barney Rubble and Fred Flintstone. Fred loans Barney money so he and his wife, Betty can adopt a child. They adopt a caveboy named Bamm-Bamm. Barney appreciates what Fred did for him and is determined to pay him back. While taking the exams, Fred fails it, and is disappointed since he will not be able to give his wife, Wilma the wealthy life she used to have. Barney takes Fred’s exam up for him and notices how poorly he did. To pay him back for giving him the money to adopt Bamm-Bamm, he swaps his exam with Fred’s and Fred is promoted to Vice President.

On Fred’s first day as an executive, Cliff brings him to his new office, where he meets Sharon Stone, Cliff’s assistant. Stone seduces Fred and tells him she will do whatever he desires. Fred is then introduced to the dictabird. Cliff orders Fred to fire Barney because of his exam score, and he (very reluctantly and sadly) fires Barney at the Rubbles’ surprise party, but does his best to help Barney afterwards with financial problems. Cliff proposes a new machine that will do all of the quarry work and increase the company’s income. However, Fred is concerned about the operators losing their jobs. Cliff plans to have a fake version of the machine built and flee with the money gained from the machine, and frame Fred for it. Cliff orders Stone to give Fred the forms, but he is against the idea. To get him to sign the forms, Miss Stone once again seduces Fred, but Wilma walks in on them this time.

The film ends with a live-action montage of the animated series’ closing credits.
