When the Mystery Inc. gang follows Scooby-Doo to Nowhere, Kansas, they stumble upon a cursed object located in the Bagge farm that garners the attention of a Cicada army leaving Scooby and friends to team up with Courage and his owners Eustace and Muriel Bagge to stop the swarm's manifestation.

According to animator and artist Tracy Mark Lee, the film's original premise was pitched as an episode of Scooby-Doo and Guess Who?. John R. Dilworth, the original creator of Courage the Cowardly Dog, was not involved with the movie. Maxwell Atoms, creator of The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy and director of Happy Halloween, Scooby-Doo! was approached to direct the film. He respectively declined upon learning that John R. Dilworth wasn't involved.
Marty Grabstein and Thea White reprise their roles as Courage and Muriel Bagge, while Jeff Bergman voices Eustace Bagge, taking over from Lionel Wilson and Arthur Anderson, due to the latter two of the three passing away in 2003 and 2016, respectively.
The crossover marks the final acting credit of Thea White, who passed away on July 30, 2021 due to liver cancer.
Straight Outta Nowhere: Scooby-Doo! Meets Courage the Cowardly Dog was released on DVD and Digital on September 14, 2021.
