The accidental amateur detective team of Fred, Daphne, Velma, Shaggy and Scooby-Doo arrive in Chicago to enter a TV talent competition. Preparations for the show are sabotaged by a Phantom who haunts the theatre, which has been unused since the 1970s when the Phantom’s actions closed the disco that had taken over the former opera house. The Phantom threatens other contestants, who pull out. Left to compete are the brattish child singer Chrissie Damon, with her very pushy parents, young violin prodigy Emma Gale and the singing duet of Fred and Daphne. Brick Pimiento, the TV show’s host, is delighted with the Phantom’s antics, which are giving the show a lot of publicity.

The young investigators set a trap to catch the Phantom. They find him in an underground cavern, complete with pipe organ and chandelier. He reveals the horror of his face… which is completely normal. This Phantom – called Steve – only stole food from the theatre and has not committed any of the evil deeds that have plagued the show’s preparations. He has kept himself hidden from the world for 40 years because of his looks – a misapprehension of his resulting from only ever having seen himself in a distorting fairground mirror.

With the search for the sabotaging Phantom renewed, the investigators uncover a a total of four more Phantoms, who have taken advantage of the theatre’s reputation as haunted for their own, different criminal ends. And each would have gotten away with it if it hadn’t been for those pesky kids.
