The Were-Doo of Doo Manor is the first episode of the fourth season of A Pup Named Scooby-Doo, and the twenty-fifth overall.


In the middle of Shaggy and Scooby's sleepover at Doo Manor, they encounter the ghost of Scooby's cursed relative Nasty Doo, who is out to turn the curse on Scooby. The only way to stop it, is for them to leave Doo Manor forever!


Shaggy and Scooby are having a sleepover at Doo Manor. After eating all the pizza and watching TV, they decided to go to bed, so they could have breakfast sooner. However, a dog-like monster emerges from the empty pizza boxes and walks towards them.

The monster chases them to the diving board of the pool and dives after them, but Scooby blows an inflatable tube and the monster lands in it; then Scooby deflates it, sending the monster out the window. Scooby's parents than came into the room, asking for his help, his mother saying they're being chased by a W E R E D O O. Shaggy asks if she means a Were-Doo, which causes the Doo's to faint; Shaggy then calls the gang for help.

After Velma then wakes them up with a pizza, they told them that for unknown reasons, the monster just showed up at Doo Manor and chased the Doo's away. Freddie promised that the Scooby-Doo Detective Agency will get to the bottom of it, ordering their next stop to be Doo Manor.

Upon arriving, they meet Professor Digmi, who's researching the history of the Doo's. He explains that the Doo's ancestor Nasty-Doo once upset a sorcerer who turned him into a monster. He goes on, explaining that the curse will be passed on to the first son of every seventh generation, upon setting paw in the manor during a full moon. Velma calculated that's Scooby the first son, and there's a full moon outside the manor. But the Professor says that the curse will end if all the Doo's abandon Doo Manor and never returns. After he leaves, Freddie says the gang will break the curse and save Doo Manor. Scooby's parents thank their son for helping. The gang then splits-up to search for clues.

Velma, Shaggy and Scooby went to Scooby's Uncle Horton's lab for help, but run into Nasty-Doo instead. After they lost him, they finally found Horton, who shows them his interests in scary things, which led Shaggy to believe Horton's the monster.

They ran into the rest of the gang and told them that Horton is the monster. Shaggy notices and thinks that Scooby's is turning into a Were-Doo, which cause the latter to faint, and it turns out he had a mop on his head. After Daphne wakes him up with a Scooby Snack, he leads them to a bookcase, which opens a secret passageway. Upon opening, Nasty-Doo emerges from within, and corners the gang.

Chasing the gang into the next room, they throw him a Birthday party, much to the monsters confusion. They then blindfolded and tie him up, getting him ready to play pin the tail on the donkey, they make him spin like a top, causing him to crash, and track dirt on the floor. They led him to the passageway behind the bookcase, playing hot or cold. After the monster leaves dazed, the gang immediately escapes.

They ran into Digmi, who drops a birthday hat from the gang's ruse. He than leaves to work on a theory, but tells Scooby that he hasn't become a monster yet. They than meet Gilda Squater, who has a grudge against the Doo's. Leading them to her room, she explains that she lived in the Manor when the Doo's inherited the family home in a will, she didn't want to be kicked out by dogs, so she's protesting against them. She then throws them out, and upon seeing the moon, Scooby begins to worry that he'll become a monster. But the gang assures him that even if he was big and scary, he wouldn't be so bad. Than Nasty-Doo appears behind them, and a chase ensues all over the manor.

They lost him by hiding in the basement. Scooby fell into a big hole and emerges with his head looking like a monster. But Velma says that he's only wearing a mask, much to everyone's relief. Velma then solves the mystery and comes up with a plan to trap the monster.

The gang (except Scooby) are digging a way out in the basement when Nasty-Doo shows up, but they say they're not scared of him anymore, but another monster. Scooby then appears wearing a Were-Scoob suit and engages Nasty to see who's scarier. They had a watermelon eating contest, but Scooby eats Nasty's and loses his mask; however, he puts it back on the wrong way and falls into the hole. Nasty goes for the gang, but Scooby digs a hole surrounding the monster and the floor gives way, taking him with it.

The gang wonders who the monster really is. Shaggy thinks that he's Horton-Doo because he's weird and spooky, while Daphne thinks it's Gilda Squater since she hates the Doo's. Freddie says that the monster is really Red Herring, who then congratulates Freddie before giving him a Golden Weenier award for accusing Red of something Red didn't do 10,000 times; Red and Freddie shake hands.

Velma than unmasks the monster, saying he's really Professor Digmi. She first suspected him when the monster tracked dirt where the Professor was digging; then, the Professor dropped the monster's birthday hat, and she knew for sure he was the culprit when Scooby found the monster's costume where the Professor was digging. He was trying to find a missing leg bone for a skeleton of a Doo's ancestor, which would've made him famous. After Digmi was taken to prison, Velma assures Scooby that the Professor made up the whole curse in order to scare away the Doo family.

Freddie is glad Scooby won't turn into a Were-Doo, but the latter faints again. Shaggy says that no one can handle family curses better than Scooby-Doo.
