The Caped Crusader Caper is the fifteenth episode of the first season of The New Scooby-Doo Movies.


The gang again meet up with Batman and Robin, while out camping. This time, they must foil the Joker and Penguin's attempts to steal Professor Flakey's flying suit.


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. Fearing they may be seen, Shaggy and Scooby start to back away. However the former accidently sits on a porcupine causing him to yell in pain. Even though Scooby manges to muffle Shaggy's scream, Joker and Penguin hear it and see smoke from the campsite. Shaggy and Scooby start to run back to the campsite to warn the others about the villains but 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".
