The Wrath of Waitro is the third and final part of the second episode of the fourth season of A Pup Named Scooby-Doo. It aired alongside Catcher on the Sly and The Ghost of Mrs. Shusham, making up the twenty-sixth overall.
Shaggy and Scooby eat lunch at a restaurant. They really pig out, a feast they haven't had since breakfast, but find they have absolutely no money to pay! Confronted by the waiter and forced to clean the dishes to pay for the food that they ate, they begin dreaming of being Commander Cool and Mellow Mutt going after a fiend named Waitro, who is trying to hypnotize all of Coolsville with his food (which includes chocolate covered squid he offers to Daphne, and some smelly socks dish.)
The heroes pursue in their car which they have to push because they forgot the fuel. They arrive to find Waitro making Velma wash dishes. Waitro fires dishes at them with a sort of dish gun. The heroes catch them all balancing them on pencils. Mellow Mutt traps him in the wrong sized cage, and therefore has to release him. They grab their utility belts, but their pants fall down.
Waitro hypnotizes them and aims to make chocolate covered superheroes of them in a large vat. They simply eat their way out of the chocolate sauce, and shoot food at him, defeating him. Shaggy and Scooby wake back up, and are now washing dishes themselves. When they are finished, the waiter rewards them with money for doing such a good job. They buy a whole table full of more food.

- Together with Catcher on the Sly and The Ghost of Mrs. Shusham, it is the last first-run Scooby-Doo instalment to air on network television, after 22 years.
- Freddie is absent from this final segment entirely, so he doesn't get a daydream counterpart (the same applies to Red Herring); Daphne and Velma only appear as their daydream counterparts.
Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches
- When Commander Cool (Shaggy) and Mellow Mutt (Scooby) break in Waitro's hideout, Scooby's legs are white instead of brown, as if he wore pants. Later, when he hands the food magnet to Commander Cool, his hands are white too.
