In the special, Scooby-Doo, Shaggy, Fred, Velma, and Daphne, embark on a holiday-themed mystery.

Plot

Scooby and the gang are celebrating along with a parade dressed up in costumes and enjoying the fun moment with many other people. While everyone is having fun, standing beside Fred is Havros Menkle, the owner of Menkle’s toy store, who is unhappy as his toy store business isn’t doing so well and the sales are going down. Havros is stressed and aware of the situation and is paranoid and suspicious of it. Fabian, Havros’s nephew apologizes for his uncle’s behavior to Fred.

After a while, Scooby and Shaggy get interrupted by a monstrous looking snowman while messing around in a yard of a spooky house. Both Scooby and Shaggy make a run as the snowman chases them. The snowman then suddenly causes a blizzard by using its breath, which ruins the entire parade causing people to flee.

Fabian guides the gang into the toy store to stay safe from the snowman monster, which Fabian calls the Sinister Snowman. He then explains to the gang about the Sinister Snowman curse caused by a man named Vladimir Harstikor, who used to live in the old mansion, and the history of that man and his uncles’ conflict and the history of it,.

The gang later decides to go and investigate the abandoned old mansion to find out what is really going on. They split up and were able to pick up multiple clues and evidence left behind by someone behind all the chaos going on. All of a sudden Shaggy and Scooby get chased again by the same Sinister Snowman from before and the whole gang ends up running away from the mansion.

They all gather back at Menkle’s toy store and plan out their next move with Fabian, Scooby and Shaggy get into disguises and the rest get frozen by the Sinister Snowmen while investigating the boiler room of the toy store. The Sinister Snowmen later makes its way to Shaggy and Scooby which the two run away into the Santa Village part of the toy store. This is where they meet the actual Santa and not the Santa actor.

The Sinister Snowman soon catches up to the three and chaos unfolds throughout the toy store. The three decide they can get help if they can get the frozen glockenspiel working again, which is located at the very top of the toy store, so they rushed towards the glockenspiel room while being chased by the snowman monster.

Fred, Daphne and Velma break free from the ice and go to find Shaggy and Scooby doo while Santa manages to repair the glockenspiel and get it running again and then disappears. The Sinister Snowman soon comes into the glockenspiel room and starts chasing Scooby and Shaggy around the room.

As soon as the clock hits 12 AM, a mechanical elf that is part of the glockenspiel tries to hit the bell, but the Sinister Snowman gets caught up in the way, causing the elf to hit the Sinister Snowman instead and making the monster collapse.

The remaining gang members arrive in the glockenspiel room in time and unmask the snowman together, which turns out to be Fabian under the snowman suit. Havros and Clete also arrives with the police in time and explain that his previous paranoid behavior was caused by the suspicion that the store sales are going down due to Fabian stealing most of the money and that Fabian wanted to make his uncle leave the store so that he can sell it.  

This meant that Havros’s suspicion turned out to be true, so the police arrest Fabian. The gang then talks about how they managed themselves through the chaos and at the same time, Santa can leave with a sleigh flying away.

Once again, the gang manages to solve another mystery and things can now go back to normal for the toy store. The following day, the Havros’s toy store is filled with customers and the gang can be seen in costumes helping out around the store and having fun.
