The gang are making their way Franken Castle, on the way they see a gypsy wagon and stop to have their fortune told; the gypsy tells them that the castle caretaker has just been frightened off and warns them to stay away from the castle. After dismissing her warnings, they continue and eventually reach the castle. They're warned off at the drawbridge by Dracula. All but Daphne manage to get off the drawbridge before it is raised, leaving her trapped inside. There she is pursued by Frankenstein's Monster. Shaggy and Scooby swing across to the castle to open the drawbridge. They manage to lower it, but are chased by the Wolfman.
Fred and Velma come upon a a dining hall where Dracula appears, transforms into a bat and swoops down on them. Velma loses here glasses and while crawling about looking for them she disappears through a trapdoor behind the fireplace.
In the mean time Scooby and Shaggy have found the kitchen—and Frankenstein's Monster. Eventually they end up in the torture chamber into which Velma too has 'blindly' wandered. They manage to find Daphne in a dungeon and rescue her while trapping Dracula. The four leave but become separated; Daphne and Velma hook up again with Fred and check out a clue that Daphne found: an inscription that points to a treasure hidden in the Franken crypt.
Meanwhile Scooby and Shaggy find a mad scientist's lab, where they begin to experiment, narrowly avoiding both the Wolfman and Frankenstein's Monster. Soon they are discovered by the rest of the gang go down to the crypt, where they find Dracula resting in one of the coffins. He chases Fred, Velma and Daphne. Shaggy and Scooby try to catch him with a tapestry, but he leaps back into the coffin, taking the tapestry with him. When they reopen the coffin, Dracula's disappeared, but left behind a ruby, diamond and gold earring. The ruby and diamond have come off the tapestry (into which they had been woven). The gold earring is identical to one worn by the gypsy they saw earlier.
Returning to the gypsy wagon, they find that "she" is actually a he: "Big Bob" Oakley, alias "The Actor", who had been trying to scare people off so he could search for the Franken treasure.
