Mindy's Mystery is the second half of the twenty-third episode of Ready Jet Go!.
Mindy can't sleep one night, having been kept awake by a sweet, strong smell from outside. Sydney, Sean, Jet, and Sunspot become detectives and try to crack the case of the sweet smell. At the same time, Mitchell is investigating what kept him up last night - a very bright "annoying" light. In the end, there's a common source - the sweet smell was from a nocturnal flower, the Moonflower, which only blooms at night, after sundown. And the bright light was from the Moon!

Moonflowers are nocturnal bloomers. After sunset as the Moon rises, these huge white flowers bloom, emit a very sweet smell, and glow in the moonlight. In the morning, they close their fragrant blooms. Moonflowers' scent attracts the night moths that feed on their nectar. Moonlight doesn't originate on the Moon. The Moon (like the planets) shines by reflected Sunlight. The Sun, of course, only lights up 1/2 of the Moon - the half that is facing the Sun.
- Sydney interrogates several characters such as Carrot and Sunspot. She asks them "(full name).....if that is your real name", which is a reference to the film Dr. Strangelove.
- This is Mitchell's second most antagonistic role in the show (the first being Kid-Kart Derby), as he acts rude to the other characters, claiming that their case isn't real.
- Mindy has her flugelhorn concert in this episode, but Dr. Melendez was not present.
