The Scooby Gang finally returns home to Coolsville, just in time for Valentines Day and a little R&R. Fred, Daphne, Velma, Shaggy and Scooby immediately get back into solving-the-crime mode when they hear that several local teenage couples have disappeared from Lovers Lane.
Shaggys ex-girlfriend Rachel, who is the local reporter, fills them in on the strange goings-on and tries to prove that she is over him by introducing them all to her new boyfriend, JC Chasez, from the mega-group NSYNC.
They all receive Valentines Day greeting cards from a secret admirer, but their investigation is cut short when they are suddenly chased by evil look-alikes incriminating them with the bizarre kidnappings. To clear their names, they go undercover, the real gang poses as sweetheart couples Daphne with Fred and Scooby with Shaggy to help lure whomever or whatever is out there causing this mischief.
