Shaggy is greeted by Brock, his good pal. Brock asks if he can have the ring. Shaggy says he can’t.

It's almost time to celebrate. Scooby and Shaggy decide to take a walk while they wait. Soon, Scooby and Shaggy are walking in the forest. Suddenly, Shaggy's ring falls onto a statue of a leprechaun. The statue is of the Gold One, an evil sleeping leprechaun. Somebody gives somebody the four-leaved clover ring. The ring lures you to the statue on your birthday. There, you wake him up. The ring fits around his finger. The statue starts shaking and glowing. A leprechaun made of pure darkness rises out. The darkness vanishes.

They hit the bottom. The Gold One laughs evilly and vanishes. The gang heads to Coolsville Library. At the Coolsville Library, the gang meets the librarian. He is a tall man. He asks the gang if they escaped the Gold One. The gang says they did. They walk off.

While searching for books, the gang wonders how the librarian knew the Gold One chased them. Velma finds a book about the Gold One. It says that the Gold One used to be a hero, and then he decided that saving people wasn't fun. He used his ring to destroy the world. One day, a hero came. He trapped the Gold One in a statue. Only the ring could wake him. The hero hid the ring somewhere. Over the years, many people have found the ring, but the Gold One has never woken up from his statue sleep. Some say, the Gold One is waiting to wake up.

The gang leaves the library. Fred says it's time to set a trap. The Gold One appears. He grabs Daphne. Velma says they need to save Daphne first. Fred tosses a net on the Gold One. It's really the librarian. He wanted to wake up the real Gold One and command him. The real Gold One appears. He has a pure white face with flaming eyes and a flaming mouth. He is wearing black. The librarian asks the Gold One to follow his orders. The Gold One laughs. He plans to rule the world. He tosses money at the librarian. The librarian explains the Gold One hired him to do all this. That means that Gold One isn't real.

The gang heads after the Gold One as a policeman comes and takes the librarian away. The Gold One shoots purple lasers everywhere. He heads to the White House to become the president. At the White House, President Obama is doing something. The Gold One comes in. The gang runs after the Gold One. The Gold One grabs Obama. He tosses him out the window. The gang grabs Obama. They pull him back in and hide. Fred says it's time to set a trap for the Gold One before he takes over the world. They run after the Gold One.

Scooby and Shaggy walk up to the Gold One. They start chatting with him like he isn't creepy. The Gold One starts chasing them around. Scooby and Shaggy lure him to Fred's trap.

The Gold One is really Shaggy's uncle, Joe. Joe wanted to rule the world. He gives Shaggy a birthday present. The police come and take Joe away. Soon, the gang is back at Coolsville.
