In this entry in the Hanna-Barbera Superstars 10 series, Scooby Doo, Shaggy and Scrappy-Doo are on their way to Miss Grimwood's Finishing School for Girls, where they have been hired as gym teachers. Once there, however, they find that it is actually a school for girl ghouls. The pupils include Sibella, the daughter of Count Dracula; Elsa Frankenteen, the daughter of Frankenteen Senior; Winnie, the daughter of a werewolf; Phantasma (usually called Phanty for short), the daughter of a phantom (not that phantom!); and Tanis (which is a reference to an Egyptian city), the daughter of a Mummy.
Thankfully, Dark Is Not Evil and the girls are actually fairly sweet (if creepy). Other residents of the school are Miss Grimwood, the headmistress; a floating white hand; an octopus, who is the school's butler; Legs, a spider that helps with the upcoming volleyball match, and the pet dragon Matches, who dislikes Scooby at first, but later becomes friends, and has a strong liking for Scrappy. Miss Grimwood soon starts gym class, with the intent to train the girls for their upcoming volleyball match against the boys of the neighboring Calloway Military Academy (who have always beaten them through cheating).
As if teaching at a school of Cute Monster Girls isn't stressful enough for the cowardly Shaggy and Scooby, the girls' fathers come for Open House and they warn Shaggy and Scooby not to let any harm come to their daughters as they leave. As an additional plot twist, Revolta, the self-styled Witch of the Web, and her minion, the Grim Creeper, plan to kidnap the girls and make them her slaves, with the help of her spider bats. If she gets hold of the girls, she will make a potion that will make them evil forever.
