Ready to engage
maneuvering thrusters.
Are you sure you know
what you're doing, Freddy?
Of course, Velma. It's just
like a big Mystery Machine.
Only in space.
Like, this dehydrated
eggplant is the best.
Hmm, hmm, hmm.
Hey, guys, don't eat
too much of that stuff.
Um, Fred?
Not now, Velma.
Fred! Look out!
beep beep
Like, this shuttle simulator was
the coolest part of the tour!
Well, it's not over yet.
We've still got one more stop.
Welcome to mission control.
Oh, and you'll have to
wear these tracking pins.
See those green blips
up there? That's you guys.
Make sure not to take them off.
We've had some security issues
on the base recently
and we wanna
make sure you stay safe.
What kind of security issues?
Don't worry,
it's nothin' we can't handle.
Well, that's it for the tour.
You'd better get going.
You don't wanna be late
for your own ceremony, Velma.
Thanks, Captain Treesdale.
[instrumental music]
Let me introduce
the two finalists.
Elliot Blinder with his project,
Soy Beans Rocket Fuel
of the Future, and Velma Dinkley
with her experiment,
How Earthworms are Affected
by Zero Gravity.
Unfortunately, we've only got
room on the shuttle
for one of these projects.
'And so the winner of this
year's future scientist'
contest is Velma Dinkley!
- Yeah! Alright, Velma!
- Yay, Velma!
Now, everyone is welcome
to help themselves
to the refreshment table.
Zucchini, anyone?
Wow, Velma,
that's a great trophy!
I have to say,
I'm pretty excited.
Not only did I win, but I got to
meet my favorite scientist.
Janet Lawrence.
'She even signed this.'
Janet has degrees in
astrophysics and biochemistry.
I didn't know they made
bubblegum cards for scientists.
Well, they don't, really.
My science club made them.
How Worms are Affected
by Zero Gravity?
Ugh. That has
no relevant application.
On the contrary.
Seeing how organisms that
possess a hydro-static skeleton
are affected by reduced gravity
could further agricultural
developments, and help
to colonize other planets.
Mine's still better.
Well, there's always
next year, Elliot.
Hi, Professor Lawrence.
Please, call me Janet.
Wow. I mean, okay!
Uh, Janet works with ETIS,
here at the base.
It stands for the Extra
Terrestrial Information Search.
You mean, aliens?
So, Janet, I was hoping
to get a look at the data
on your current
research project.
It's classified.
Recently, we've had
Hopefully it's
nothing to worry about.
So, Janet, uh,
do you think I, um
have the right stuff?
Uh, to be an astronaut.
Being an astronaut
takes a lot of work.
I know I could never do it.
I'm afraid of heights.
What is that?
Oh, no! The alien!
What was that thing?
That was the complication.
I warned you this could happen.
Well, from now on,
we're not taking any chances.
Already locked down the base.
No one is permitted to leave.
What about the shuttle flight?
I'm sorry, Janet,
but until we find that..
whatever it was,
the launch is cancelled.
Professor Lawrence, could that
really have been an alien?
Anything is possible, Velma.
Last month, I sent a probe
to collect comet debris
and it picked up
something very unusual.
It looked like an egg.
Possibly an alien egg.
Earlier this evening,
I was about to run
a preliminary scan of it.
But then the egg hatched.
I tried to warn
everyone that there
might be an alien on the loose.
But no one would believe me.
That must've been one big egg.
The alien is four feet tall.
That's just the thing!
The egg wasn't
very large at all.
Lucky us. It going through
an alien growth spurt.
Don't worry, Janet, we're going
to get to the bottom of this.
You guys go on ahead
but please, be careful.
First thing we should do
is check out the lab.
Uh-uh. Scoob and I
are staying right here.
Right here?
Where we just saw the alien?
Suit yourself.
Why does she always do that?
Like, wait for us!
My laptop says that the material
is definitely organic.
Whatever it is,
it sure is gooey.
Not exactly a scientific term.
Oh, but you're right.
And there's water in
the bottom of the egg paste.
Maybe that's because
someone left this faucet on.
Hmm. I wonder if that
had any effect on the egg.
[heavy breathing]
It's the alien!
Hey, gang. What is a make-up
container doing in the lab?
Maybe it belongs to Janet.
I doubt it. She didn't have
any makeup on at the ceremony.
And if you don't wear makeup
to an even like that
you certainly don't wear it
while working in your lab.
Well, gang, it looks like
there's only
one thing left to do.
Let me guess.
Split up and look for clues.
How did I know
he was gonna say that?
Wow, just our luck, Scoob.
The mess hall!
- Yeah!
- Check it out!
Like, this is
the dehydrating machine
where they make
all that astronaut food.
Gulp! A whole watermelon,
in one bite!
Oh, man, am I home!
'This dehydrated stuff
is the best!'
'Half the height,
16 times the food!'
Hand me another four slices
of tomato, would ya, Scoob?
- Eh?
- Like, thanks!
Man, Scoob, your fur's
gettin' kinda scaly.
Way to go, Scoob!
You trapped him!
Like, who are you?
That doesn't matter right now.
Hm. What is this?
It's like, an alien rash!
Like, our janitor at school
could never do that!
We have to get him
to the infirmary.
'Is the coast clear?'
Yup! Uh, Scoob trapped
the alien in the storeroom.
Well, like, we thought he did!
Hey, guys. Any luck?
Yup. And all of it bad.
We saw the alien.
And not only did we see him,
but he's growing!
That menace from Mars
is now taller than Freddy!
I wonder just how big
it will get!
Like, I don't wanna find out!
Me neither!
Janet, you sure
are working late.
Well, Reggie has
scheduled exercise
and I'm not
going to let that alien
stop me from
getting my work done.
Who's Reggie?
A chimpanzee, wow!
Reggie here is going on
the next shuttle flight
to do an important space walk
'He's truly amazing.'
'I can train him
to do just about anything.'
Scooby, what are you doing?
'We don't have time
for swimming.'
Elliot, what are you
hiding behind your back?
Hey! Let go of that,
you fleabag canine.
This is the research data
for Janet's project.
This is classified!
So what?
I'm not scared of--
'What's going on here?'
Is that.. I thought I asked you
not to look at my research.
Velma did it!
I tried to stop her.
- What?
- It doesn't matter who did it.
I told you that you were welcome
to look around the lab
but my data was off-limits.
I don't believe in violence
but that doesn't mean
I don't know
how to give a mean wedgie.
Wait, wait, I can help you.
I doubt that highly.
Trust me, I found something.
You brought us to
a janitor's closet?
Would you just
look inside already?
Jeepers. This looks
like spy stuff.
What would a janitor
be doing with all this?
'Well, there was something
strange about that janitor'
who bandaged up
Captain Treesdale.
She sure knew
a lot about medicine!
Looks like we better
keep our eye on this
mystery maintenance woman.
If that shuttle doesn't launch
five years of Janet's research
is down the drain.
Maybe that's why someone came up
with this whole alien scheme.
But who could be behind it.
Do you think Keith Dale
might be hiding something?
Or maybe our mystery janitor
has a secret or two.
I wouldn't put it past Eliot.
Hey, like, I've got
another suspect for ya. Him!

Where's Daphne?
There's Daphne!
The green blip!
Oh, no! We've gotta help her.
This darn shoe!
Come on, come on!
Like, don't look down, Daph!
I wonder why the alien didn't
follow me across the gangplank.
Maybe you've got
happenin' karma!
Or maybe that alien
is a big phony.
Oh, no! My worm farm!
Someone broke it.
That's too bad
about your project, Velma.
But right now I think
we have bigger problems!
The alien?
There's only
one way to find out.
Hey, let go of me, you big jerk!
Did you do this to my project?
So what if I did?
Your project was stupid.
That's it!
I say Eliot is the alien.
Hey, not so fast, Velma.
There's still one suspect
we haven't investigated.
Why would Keith Dale not wanna
see the shuttle launch?
I don't know,
but if he is behind this
we're gonna find out.
Hey, look at this.
It's Keith's internet password.
"Keith Razorchuck." So?
So Razorchuck?
Maybe Dale wasn't
always Keith's last name.
He's an article,
it looks like Keith Razorchuck
was a pretty good scientist
and look at this!
An article he wrote about
artificial intelligence.
That's what Janet
won the Nobel Prize for.
It looks like they were both
working on the same idea
but Janet published
her research first.
So if Keith lost
the Nobel Prize to Janet
maybe he's trying to get revenge
by sabotaging her new project.
Hey, who do you think's
creepin' around
in the dive tank room
at this time of night?
I don't know.
Yep. My thought exactly.
We'd better tell
the gang about this.
Now, what would a janitor
be cleaning in here?
And why so late at night?
This doesn't look right.
We need to get a closer look
at the surveillance camera.
Ahh. Almost got it.
Like, help!
What's that?
Oh, I forgot about all about
the dehydrated food
I shoved in my pockets.
The water must've
caused it to expand.
Hmm. Interesting.
And this looks like
some sort of radio transmitter
that's been hooked
into the security system.
Janitor must've put it here.
Well, I think I've got this
mystery just about figured out.
There's only
one thing left to do.
Capture that alien.
Okay, now, it's very simple.
When the alien runs in, Daphne
will hit the floodlights
blinding it.
The alien will slip down this
ramp toward the open cockpit
of the centrifugal
force machine.
Velma will
seal the door, while I
throw the switch from
up there in the control room.
Looks like
the only thing we need now
is someone to lure the alien
into this room.
Uh-uh. I see where
this is goin'.
Scoob and I are
not gonna be bait!
- Not this time.
- Uh-uh!
Oh, yeah?
Would you do it for a--
Sorry, Daphne.
We're way ahead of you.
We brought our own
supply of Scooby Snacks
just for such an emergency!
Oh, yeah? But do you have..
Oh, man. Nothing goes better
with Scooby Snacks than milk.
Like, way to show
a united front, Scooby Doo.
Remember that triple creature
feature we saw last week?
Well, if I learned anything,
it's that aliens
like to hide in vents.
Like, hand me that screwdriver,
would ya, Scoob?
So much for the movies.
I think I hear someone coming!
Throw the lights, Daphne!
Ah! Whoa!
Okay, Freddy, that's enough!
It's time to find out
who our alien really is.
Janet Lawrence?
Professor Lawrence? But why?
Because her project
wasn't ready.
Instead of facing
the humiliation
'of admitting her mistake'
'she decided to keep the space
shuttle from launching.'
'By coming up
with this alien egg scam.'
That's why she didn't
want us looking at her data.
And that's why
she wouldn't chase Daphne
'across the gangplank
at the top of the tower!'
'Because Janet
is afraid of heights!'
And the makeup I found
in the lab did belong to Janet.
But it wasn't makeup at all.
'It was an allergy powder
that caused'
'that strange rash
on Captain Treesdale.'
And only someone
with a degree in biochemistry
could come up with
a freaky compound like that.
Great work, kids.
But how do you
explain the shorter alien?
It couldn't have been Janet.
The short version
was Reggie, the chimp
wearing the alien suit.
Then Janet wore
the costume herself
for the medium version
'and then used stilts
to make it appear that'
'the alien was growing
for the tall version.'
But thanks to Shaggy,
there was one final clue
which put it
all together for me.
When he fell in the tank,
and all this food expanded?
It made me realize that the
alien egg was nothing more
than dehydrated
organic material.
When Janet wanted to make
it look like it was hatching
all she had to do
was add a little water.
And I would have
gotten away with it
if it weren't
for you meddling kids.
But who are you?
My name is Celia Clyde.
I'm an FBI agent.
I was sent here to monitor
possible alien activity.
Sorry we had to
unmask your alien.
That's alright.
This alien
might have been a fake
but out there somewhere,
maybe watching us right now
are extraterrestrials
waiting to make contact.
Like, you aren't kiddin', look!
There it goes!
It's too bad your experiment
isn't going with it, Velma.
That's okay.
There's always next year.
But come to think of it,
what happened to my worms?
These Chinese noodles
sure look great, huh, Scoob?
Uh-uh. Oh!
Scooby Doobyee-yuck.
