When users go to the search engine's home page they are greeted to five elaborate illustrations, which have been designed in celebration for the annual day celebrated on October 31.
Clicking on the logo takes users from one illustration to another with a footprint underneath, which follow the sleuthing youths who are hunting a mysterious trick-or-treating candy ghost that has left a trail of sweets left behind.
Each picture shows the Hanna-Barbera's zany teen ghostbusters being chased by ghosts – Fred "Freddie" Jones, Daphne Blake, Velma Dinkley, Norville "Shaggy" Rogers and Scooby Doo – are shown investigating Halloween style clues in a bid to solve why the Google logo is missing.
The fourth illustration shows the hapless Shaggy and Scooby being scared by ghosts before the final colourful illustration shows the team surrounded by smiling pumpkins with the "villain" captured.
As one of the most infamous Great Danes, Scooby-Doo once said: "Rimage ris everything."
The popular Scooby Doo television adventure series has been a children's favourite since its creation in 1969. It follows the Mystery Machine-travelling gang on a series of ghostbusting adventures.
