Scooby, Scrappy, and the Mystery, Inc. gang are helping Tiny Tina and the other young residents of a children's home put on a Christmas pageant when they are interrupted by a spooky apparition. Is it the work of the dastardly businessman Winslow Nickleby, who would do anything to buy the home? Or is someone else after the emerald hidden on the premises?
