Released on July 23, 2013, Scooby-Doo! Adventures: The Mystery Map
is the 20th direct-to-video production
for the Scooby-Doo
franchise, and the first with puppets.
What begins as a routine night for the gang hanging out in their treehouse turns mysterious when Scooby discovers a treasure map in his triple extra-large Scooby Snack pizza. The treasure map is said to lead to the treasure of villainous scallywag Gnarlybeard the Pirate. The gang make a mad dash to find the frightening Phantom Parrot with the stolen map, where Scooby sniffs out the map's clues, leading him right to a spooky pirate ship. What will Gnarlybeard be willing to do to protect his booty?
