His costume was stolen and later activated when Shaggy and Scooby were doing dumb things to the control panel causing some of the monsters to come to life, including Cutler. When the gang went down to the old high school clubhouse, they were unaware that Cutler was hiding in the water.
While Fred, Velma and Daphne were working on the control panel, Shaggy and Scooby were outside near the Mystery Machine lamenting over how they feel like screwups till Shaggy picks up a rock from the ground and skips it across the water until it hit something metal underneath the water. Cutler then rose from the water, causing Shaggy and Scooby to call out to the others as they headed for the Mystery Machine while Cutler climbed out of the water and took out his spear gun and fired it at the Mystery Machine and started pulling it backwards.
Fred then backed up the Mystery Machine, knocking into Cutler and sending him flying into the air before tumbling the water. Captain Cutler was turned back into a costume when Scooby-Doo reconnected the control panel in the Monster Hive. The news people found his head and asked Shaggy if they could take his picture in it. Scooby whacked Shaggy on the head, thinking Cutler had returned and stopped when he realized it was only his best pal.
