Shaggy & Scooby-Doo Get a Clue

This isn't your parents'Scooby-Doo.

Velma: It sure sounds like you guys have what it takes.

Daphne: I think you two have really grown up.

Waiter: Enjoy the food.

(Shaggy and Scooby devour everything in front of them)

Fred: Then again, they're still the same old Shag and Scooby.

Scooby: Scooby-doo-be-DOO!

Shaggy and Scooby Doo, the Lovable Coward/Big Eater duo from the Scooby-Doo franchise, branch out in their own show, where Shaggy inherits a billion dollars and a mansion from his missing Uncle Albert, an inventor. However, Uncle Albert's inventions are being pursued by the sinister Dr. Phineas Phibes and his henchmen. Fortunately, Shaggy and Scooby can thwart their evil plans thanks to special Scooby Snacks that give Scooby-Doo temporary superpowers. It didn't get any further beyond two seasons, because of the CW shutting down the Kids' WB! block after 4Kids Entertainment bought it.

Tropes of this series:

  • Adaptational Personality Change: Shaggy and Scooby-Doo are generally much less cowardly than previous incarnations, although Scooby is still terrified of lightning.
  • Alliterative Name: Dr. Phineas Phibes has a first and last name that both start with "Ph".
  • Amusing Injuries: The pratfalls of Agents #1 and #2 in the pilot make the antics of Home Alone look like a mild slip.
  • And Knowing Is Half the Battle: Robi seems fond of doing this randomly in the middle of the episode, even if unrelated to the plot:

    Robi:Don't stand under trees during a thunderstorm.

  • Animal Superheroes: Uncle Albert has invented a nanotech formula that grants temporary superpowers, but it's only safe for use on animals, so he puts the formula into Scooby Snacks. They grant Scooby and a few other animals a multitude of powers including invisibility, super strength, shape-shifting, and turning into a giant robot.
  • Art Shift: The art style is rather different in comparison to previous Scooby shows; for instance, Scooby's eyes are now drawn as dots.
  • Bad Humor Truck: In "High Society Scooby", Agents 1 and 2 lure Scooby and Shaggy into a trap by driving an ice cream truck.
  • Big Bad: Dr. Phineas Phibes is the main villain of this series. He's also notably the first main antagonist to appear in any of the shows, when previous entries of the franchise only used one-shot antagonists.
  • Big Eater: Shaggy and Scooby are once again portrayed as perpetually hungry gluttons; some things never change.
    • In "The Many Faces of Evil" Shaggy and Scooby decide the best way to clean out the Grand Canyon filled with Jello is to eat all of the Jello. They end up so full they're actually scared to eat for a while.
  • Big Storm Episode: "Lightning Strikes Twice."
  • Black Bead Eyes: For the first time, Scooby joins the rest of the Mystery Inc. gang in their lack of sclera.
  • Bookcase Passage: The entrance to Uncle Albert's underground lab is shown to be behind a bookcase.
  • The Cameo: After their guest appearances in the series premiere and the episode "Almost Ghosts", Fred and Daphne make brief silent cameos in the episode "Inside Job".
  • Cast as a Mask: Dr. Phibes's scientist assistant Dr. Trebla is voiced by Scott Menville, but his true identity, Uncle Albert, is voiced by Casey Kasem.
  • Chekhov M.I.A.: The series is kicked off by Shaggy's Uncle Albert mysteriously disappearing and keeping contact with Shaggy through holographic messages warning his nephew of Dr. Phibes' plans. At the end of the series, it turns out that Dr. Trebla was really Uncle Albert in disguise all along and he reunites with his nephew.
  • Cool Car: Shaggy uses his newfound inherited billions to somehow make the Mystery Machine capable of transforming into multiple different vehicles, including an airplane, golfcart, snowmobile, submarine, and rocketship.
  • Cute Kitten: Dr. Phibes takes an imperfect form of Albert's nanotech formula that transforms him into a cat. For a short while after he changes back into a cat whenever he's startled.
  • Dartboard of Hate: "Party Arty" has a scene where Phibes throws darts at photographs of Shaggy and Scooby.
  • Demoted to Extra: The first series since The New Scooby-Doo Mysteries to reduce the prominence of Fred, Daphne, and Velma. Even though the three's silhouettes can be seen in the show's title sequence, Fred, Daphne, and Velma only have speaking appearances in the premiere episode "Shags to Riches" and "Almost Ghosts". All that came after those guest appearances was a silent cameo by Fred and Daphne in "Inside Job".
  • Dogs Love Fire Hydrants: In "More Fondue for Scooby-Doo", the villain Misty Swiss at one point has snow fall on her and form the shape of a fire hydrant. Her dog Carla attempts to pee on her, but she stops her before she can do so.
  • Electromagnetic Pulse: Dr. Phibes' scheme in the episode "Pole to Pole" is to trigger a small EMP at the North Pole during a pole shift, thus shutting off all electronics on the planet.
  • Epic Fail: In the beginning of the episode "Pole to Pole", Robi plays a racing game with Shaggy and Scooby and gets 33rd place even though the game only has 30 racers.
  • Exact Words: When Doctor Phibes demands a nanotech formula that works, his techies offer a pill that gives the user claws, night vision, and super hearing. Phibes takes it and it turns him into a cat.
  • Failed a Spot Check: In the series opening, Dr. Phibes demands Shaggy and Scooby Doo give him the Nanotech formula. Neither he nor any of his scientists notice they instead gave him a recipe for hot dog tacos until after they escape.
  • Fantastic Voyage: Inside Job where Shaggy and Scooby-Doo go inside Dr Phineus Phibes, to counteract the nanobot formula.
  • Fear of Thunder:
    • Scooby suffers this heavily in the episode "Lightning Strikes Twice."
    • Dr. Phibes will blast anyone who even says the word with his laser. It's totally justified as well since a lab accident turned him into a lighting rod. The moment he goes outside, regardless of the weather storm clouds will gather and he 'will' be struck by lighting, and has been eighty seven times before.
  • Fun with Acronyms: The episode "Party Arty" has a robotic assassin known as A.R.T. (Automated Robotic Tactical Unit).
  • Genre Shift: Previous installments of the Scooby-Doo franchise involved spooks, mysteries and light comedy. This series focuses more on comedy with some action and villains in the vein of something like Johnny Test, Inspector Gadget or Kim Possible.
    • "Mystery of the Missing Mystery Solvers" involved a mystery-solving scenario, only Scooby and Shaggy must overcome their fears to prove themselves.
    • "Super Scary Movie Night" also involves Shaggy and Scooby-Doo confronting various scary monsters in a classic Scooby-Doo fashion.
  • Giant Mecha:
    • Dr. Phibes constructs a giant robot as a replacement body for himself in the episode "Big Trouble".
    • One of the Super Scooby Snacks turns Scooby into a giant robot.
  • Grand Finale: While the ending is open-ended somewhat by having Dr. Phibes escape and vow that he'll come back, the season two finale "Uncle Albert Alert" still has a degree of finality to it because of Dr. Phibes' lair being destroyed as well as Shaggy and Scooby finally reuniting with Shaggy's Uncle Albert, who was revealed to have been disguised as Dr. Trebla the whole time.
  • Husky Russkie: One of the assassins sent after Shaggy and Scooby in "Operation Dog and Hippie Boy" is a Russian brute named Menace.
  • Incredible Shrinking Man: Uncle Albert has a shrinking ray in his basement. Shaggy and Scooby get a lot of use out of it.
  • Inkblot Test: Dr. Phibes is shown some ink blots by Agent 2 in the episode "Cruisin' for a Bruisin'". He identifies every one as either "dog" (Scooby) or "hippy boy" (Shaggy).
  • Instrument of Murder: In "Zoinks the Wonder Dog", the robot double of Groovy Don has a guitar that fires lasers.
  • Insult Backfire: In "Uncle Albert Alert", when trying to weed out the one who's been infiltrating his organization to inform Shaggy and Scooby of his plans, Dr. Phibes gathers together his most trusted minions and gives his reasons for why he's certain none of them are the mole. He tells Agent 2 that he's simply too stupid to be the mole, to which Agent 2 replies by happily thanking him.
  • "Kick Me" Prank: In "Scooby Dudes", Scooby paints the words "Kick Me" on Dr. Phibes' back after consuming a super speed Scooby Snack.
  • Latex Perfection: A ridiculously lifelike mask is how Uncle Albert disguised himself as Dr. Trebla, in the only instance of this classic Scooby-Doo trope showing up in the series.
  • Lawyer-Friendly Cameo: One episode features Cat Lady.

    Scooby: Cats! (Hisses)

  • Literal-Minded: Robi has trouble understanding figures of speech, being a robot with faulty programming. For example, the episode "Party Arty" has him interpret the command "lie low" to mean that he has to lie down as low as possible and "keep it cool" as an instruction to cover himself in ice cubes.
  • Lying Finger Cross: When Shaggy and Scooby find out they're taking the same vacation cruise as Dr. Phibes in "Cruisin' for a Bruisin'", they make Phibes promise that they'll hold a truce for the duration of the vacation. When Dr. Phibes makes the promise, he crosses his fingers and subsequently orders Agents 1 and 2 to try and kill Shaggy and Scooby.
  • Mad Scientist: Doctor Phineas Phibes. His name references Vincent Price's The Abominable Dr. Phibes. He also has a thick German accent borrowed from Col. Klink and Dr. Strangelove, a Red Right Hand/Artificial Limb raygun arm, and much of the same Genre Blindness as Dr. Evil.
  • Mistaken for Aliens: The episode "Lightning Strikes Twice" has Dr. Phibes' agents mistake Shaggy and Scooby for aliens due to the pair getting covered in lemon-lime pudding.
  • Mythology Gag:
  • The Mole: Uncle Albert is somehow able to get wind of all of Phibes' plans and relay them to Shaggy and Scooby. The season one finale explains how: he's disguised as Phibes' right-hand man Dr. Trebla.
  • Nanomachines: Uncle Albert's nanomachines are baked into dog biscuits to give Scooby super-powers; when viewed at microbe size they appear to be floating robots. Unusually, they are immune to EMP, since they still work after experiencing one at ground zero in "Pole to Pole".
  • Oddball in the Series: Switches from the franchise staple of solving mysteries and unmasking villains to a superhero/spy type of show, with lots of technology and a Big Bad.
  • Pants-Pulling Prank: In "The Many Faces of Evil", one of Dr. Phibes' clones pantses the original Dr. Phibes.
  • Perpetual Storm: "Lightning Strikes Twice" has Dr. Phibes, recalling a bad experience from the past involving lightning, inspired to create a Weather-Control Machine that causes nonstop thunderstorms all across the world. It's especially bad for Scooby-Doo, since he is terrifiedof lightning.
  • Polar Bears and Penguins: A penguin can be seen while the titular characters and their robot butler are in the Arctic.
  • Robot Buddy: Robi the Robot Butler serves as a robotic friend to Shaggy and Scooby for this series.
  • Sdrawkcab Alias: Dr. Trebla turns out to be Shaggy's Uncle Albert in disguise, with Trebla being Albert spelled backwards.
  • Smart People Speak the Queen's English: In "Don't Get a Big Head," when Scooby-Doo eats a nano-power Scooby Snack that gives him super intelligence, he starts speaking with a British accent once the intelligence kicks in, though his voice still has his distinct dog Speech Impediment. Shaggy notices this and comments, "I like the accent, Scoob. Nice touch!"
  • Spin-Off: Just like in a Situation Comedy spinoff, a subset of the cast are put in a completely different situation (investigators who uncover supernatural hoaxes becoming rich superheroes who use nanotech to fight supervillains) and rarely interact with their previous friends and acquaintances.
  • Super Speed: The ability to move incredibly fast is one of the many super powers Scooby (and, in one episode, a mouse) can obtain.
  • Super Strength: Scooby can get super strength from a super Scooby Snack, and Dr. Phibes is able to duplicate the ability when he modifies the Nanomachines to work on humans.
  • Technicolor Science: Uncle Albert's field of study.
  • Thick-Line Animation: It's not a completely new style for the franchise, but this is one of the most exaggerated examples of it.
  • Time Travel: Scooby can somehow achieve this while using Super Speed, moving back in time about half an hour to undo mistakes.
  • Timey-Wimey Ball: In "Pole to Pole," Shaggy and Scooby fail to stop Dr. Phibes' scheme, forcing them to travel back in time to try again. During their first attempt, a mysterious car pursued them and kept honking; on the second attempt, the duo finds themselves driving that car and honking the horn to get the attention of their past selves. So, that was them the whole time. Moments later, they do deliver a warning to their past selves, which dramatically changes history. This not only causes a Time Paradox, since Shaggy and Scooby only go back in time if they don't go back in time, but it also only works if this universe allows you to Set Right What Once Went Wrong — which contradicts how they just established time travel works.
  • Urine Trouble:
    • A minor recurring gag has Robi's robot dog Sparky "peeing" orange juice due to having a juicer for a leg.
    • In "Zoinks the Wonder Dog", one of the things the robot duplicate of Shaggy's original dog Zoinks does to spite Scooby is piss on Scooby's new DVD player.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Dr. Phibes can't survive under an open sky (at least until the second season).
  • Weather-Control Machine: Dr. Phibes makes one in "Lightning Strikes Twice," but it's designed to just create thunderstorms across the world.
  • Wedgie: An episode has Shaggy and Scooby sneak up on Dr. Pribes and give him an atomic wedgie.

Shaggy Rogers

Norville "Shaggy" Rogers is a member of Mystery Incorporated and the deuteragonist and sometimes protagonist of the Scooby-Doo franchise. He is the owner and best friend of their team's mascot: Scooby-Doo, a talking Great Dane, who is the main character and the protagonist of the aforementioned Scooby-Doo franchise.

Shaggy first appeared in the Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! episode "What a Night for a Knight" in , and 24 other episodes in the series. He has since gone onto appear in countless spin-off TV series, specials, films, comics, and video games.

The voice was originated by Casey Kasem.

Throughout the years, Hanna-Barbera, Cartoon Network, and Warner Bros. Animation, as well as book and video game publishers, have conceived several incarnations, which don't always fit together because new writers have come on board and disregarded what has come before or there has been a complete reboot, but the general concept has been the same, perhaps except for DC Comics' radically altered Scooby Apocalypse.

In popular culture

  • In "Chapter 20" of the Star Wars: Clone Wars series developed by Genndy Tartakovsky, the young nervous Jedi was a parody of Shaggy, as revealed by Tartakovsky in the audio commentary for the episode. John DiMaggio voiced the character. Tartakovsky wanted his voice to be higher, but found it to be too goofy to be mixed in with the serious tone he was going for. While unnamed in the episode (he was credited as "Padawan"), the official Star Wars website would later identify him as Sha'a Gi.
  • In The Cleveland Show episode "A Nightmare on Grace Street", Cleveland and Rallo are forced to put an end to their feud by staying in a spooky mansion at night on Halloween. Rallo says it's nice, but Cleveland responded that it "seemed a little Scooby-Doo". He then says "Zoinks" like Shaggy, and jumps on Rallo like Scooby would jump on Scooby, with appropriate sound effects. Rallo then feeds him a dog biscuit, with Cleveland responding in a happy Scooby-like tone.

This article is about the original incarnation of Shaggy Rogers. For other incarnations, see Shaggy Rogers (disambiguation).

Shaggy Rogers

Norville[1] "Shaggy" Rogers[2] is a member of Mystery Inc., and the owner and best friend of their team's mascot: Scooby-Doo, a talking Great Dane.

Physical appearance

For a full list of what Shaggy wears, see Shaggy's outfits and disguises.

Shaggy is a lanky, Caucasian teenaged male; he is fairly light for his age—even Velma Dinkley can pick him up with her own hands. He seems to have a very long neck. He also has whiskers on his chin, forming somewhat of a goatee. During his time as a werewolf, his irises are bluish green.[3]

He usually wears a green V-neck shirt, brown bell-bottom pants, and black platforms, in a red v-neck shirt and blue-colored pants. He has infrequently changed his outfit, from simply switching the colors of his outfit, with a t-shirt and blue pants, to an entire wardrobe change when at Albert Shaggleford's mansion, by wearing a white t-shirt with a dark green stripe and sleeves, an orange long-sleeved undershirt, lighter green cargo pants, and black and white sneakers.


Shaggy is something of a hippy due to his generally laid back persona, his hair, clothes, and his inappropriate use of slipping in the word "Like" in his speech. Even though throughout the years, he's tried to be the average teen, he's still stuck being labelled as a hippy.

He and Scooby-Doo have nearly insatiable appetites, as well as tendencies towards goofing off and cowardice. Due to these similarities, Shaggy typically treats Scooby as a normal person rather than his pet. Shaggy uses his catch phrase "Zoinks!" whenever he's surprised or scared, which is frequently. Most of the time whenever he's scared, he'd rather save himself and wouldn't help others, but&#;is sometimes encouraged by either Scooby Snacks or his own personal Shaggy Snacks, or Scooby's disappointment in his attitude. Despite this, he would occasionally brag about his bravery and enjoys the attention. During his time at his Uncle Albert's mansion, he had to uncharacteristically summon a large amount of courage and bravery to repeatedly to stop Dr. Phineus Phibes's attempts at global domination, endangering innocent people's lives, and locating the missing Dr. Shaggleford, who had gone into hiding due to his arch-rival Dr. Phibes.

Although Shaggy enjoys a variety of food, he briefly took a stance as a vegetarian.

Skills and abilities

Although usually considered a coward, Shaggy often proves useful in ferreting out the "monsters" and "ghosts" that are usually at the heart of the gang's mysteries, sometimes inadvertently, and sometimes by reluctantly acting as "live bait" for a trap, providing a necessary distraction for their eventual capture. Shaggy also has disguise and ventriloquism skills, as well as being athletic, which often helps the gang; in the episode What a Night for a Knight, Daphne says that he is the best gymnast in school, and he has also mentioned that he ran track. He has even dressed up as Daphne and Scooby on at least one occasion (usually for Halloween or something similar.) He is even capable of doing certain vocal impressions, from the Ghost of Redbeard (Go Away Ghost Ship) to even a train in a tunnel (Mine Your Own Business). He is also able to fly a plane, however he got lost and flew to the Himalayas instead of Hawaii. (To All the Ghouls I've Loved Before)

Shaggy also has an enormous appetite, being able to eat in tremendously large quantities at a time.

Romantic interests

There have been instances where Shaggy has noticed and gained the attention from the opposite sex over the years.


Being only an amateur sleuth doesn't pay the bills, so Shaggy has had to find a source of income (and sometimes a profession if the gang decide to part ways for a while), and has taken on a variety of different jobs through his life. This is a list of them:

  • Junior detectives-for-hire: Contrary to the above, when the gang was in their preadolescence, they worked out of a clubhouse, calling themselves the Scooby-Doo Detective Agency, and charged a minimal fee for their services in solving the mysteries in their hometown of Coolsville. (APNSD)
  • Paper boy: In junior high, he was a paper boy for the Daily Babbler, until he found out his boss stole his bike chain to work his counterfeiting machine, causing him to quit. (APNSD: A Bicycle Built for Boo!)
  • Movie extra: The gang was given parts as extras in Sandy Duncan's film, after solving the case at Mammoth Studios. (TNSDMovies: Sandy Duncan's Jekyll and Hyde)
  • Carnival owner: Scooby, along with the rest of the gang, was given a share of Dick Van Dyke's carnival, after saving it from going under. (TNSDMovies: The Haunted Carnival)
  • Construction worker: He, Scooby and Fred took questionable jobs at a construction site. This was simply to make some extra cash. (TSDS: High Rise Hair Raiser)
  • Detective: He, Scooby and Scrappy worked for his uncle Fearless Shagaford at the Fearless Detective Agency. (The Scooby & Scrappy Doo Puppy Hour)
  • Freelance journalist: Scooby, Shaggy, Scrappy, and Daphne became freelance journalists, forming the second incarnation of the Scooby-Doo Detective Agency. (TNS&SDS, TNSDMysteries)
  • Gym teacher: He, Scooby and Scrappy were hired as gym teachers at Grimwood's Finishing School for Girls, or so they believed. (Scooby-Doo and the Ghoul School)
  • Racecar driver. (Scooby-Doo and the Reluctant Werewolf)
  • Aiport customs: He and Scooby worked in customs at an airport during the break-up of Mystery Inc., but were fired when they ate all the confiscated cheese. (Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island.)
  • Zookeeper volunteer (WNSD: Uncle Scooby and Antarctica)

Behind the scenes

The inspiration for the character came from Maynard G. Krebs, a hippy character played by Bob Denver in the early s sitcom The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis.[4] His surname was first published in stories by Marvel Comics, then became validated in cartoon form in the The New Scooby and Scrappy Doo Show episode Wedding Bell Boos!

His real name, Norville, was created by Tom Ruegger for A Pup Named Scooby-Doo.[5] The name came from Oliver Norvell Hardy.[6]

Voices of Shaggy

Casey Kasem played Shaggy for a time where he was portrayed as a vegetarian, by request of Kasem, who is a vegan. In the past, Shaggy had a tendency to overeat and eat anything he could. Kasem disagreed with this portrayal, and in he walked out on the role when Shaggy and Scooby-Doo were to be portrayed in a Burger King commercial. He also did this because the producers of Scooby Doo would not turn Shaggy into a vegan, which Kasem is. Therefore he quit, later to rejoin the crew when they allowed Shaggy to be a vegan, only ten years later, in the series What's New, Scooby-Doo?

On a series of Peter Pan Records read-along book-and-audio sets from the late s, Duncan Robertson voiced Shaggy, while the other cast members of the show reprised their roles for the records.

Scott Innes and Billy West briefly took over the role in several of the direct-to-video films produced in the late s and early s. From , Scott Menville voiced Shaggy in the TV series Shaggy & Scooby-Doo Get a Clue!, while Kasem voiced Albert Shaggleford in guest spots. From , Matthew Lillard had been selected to voice Shaggy Rogers, having previously played the role in the and live-action films.

In other languages

Shaggy is well-known around the world, in several countries. His name is Sammy Rogers in French, Bozont Rogers in Hungarian and Kudłaty[7] Rogers in Polish versions of Scooby-Doo.&#;

Scooby Doo Actor Matthew Lillard Explains Why Not Playing Shaggy In Scoob! Was A ‘Bummer’

The late Casey Kasem may have been the first actor to bring Scooby-Doo character Shaggy Rogers to life, but ever since Kasem retired from the role in , Matthew Lillard has been regularly voicing the character, and had already played Scooby Doo’s best pal in the first two live-action movies. However, when it came time to put Scoob! together, the filmmakers decided to cast Will Forte as Shaggy instead.

This move was incredibly disappointing for Matthew Lillard, as he laid out when it was brought up in an interview about how Will Forte was cast as Shaggy for Scoob!:

About Scoob, I don’t have a lot of nice things to say. I wish them well, I hope the movie does really well. I mean, it was a drag. And I was surprised that happened. And I think Hollywoods an interesting place and I’ve been around for a long time. Some of them are easier than others when you don’t get a job, but that one was a bummer. I like playing the part I like sort of having a legacy and a career that I’ve spent 30 years doing. So I like the fact that I was that part, and it was a bummer that it went a different way.

Shaggy Rogers is certainly one of Matthew Lillard’s most recognizable roles, if not ranked at the top of the list. Following his live action appearances in ’s Scooby-Doo and ’s Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed, Lillard starting taking over regular animated Shaggy duties with the animated series Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated, returning to voice him in numerous other shows, TV specials and direct-to-video movies.

So it’s understandable why Matthew Lillard was upset that he wasn’t chosen to reprise Shaggy Rogers in Scoob!, which he conveyed while speaking with Entertainment Tonight’s Ash Crossan. He’s not the only Scooby-Doo alum who’s expressed disappointment and not being brought onto the project, as Grey DeLisle-Griffin, who’s been voicing Daphne Blake for more than 20 years now, expressed similar sentiments this week. That said, Lillard made it clear that he doesn’t hold any ill will towards the movie overall, and also tweeted the following today:

So while you won’t be hearing Matthew Lillard in Scoob!, you can still hear him as Shaggy Rogers on the TV and direct-to-video front for the foreseeable future. He and Grey DeLisle-Griffin currently star on the Cartoon Network/Boomerang series Scooby-Doo and Guess Who?, which also features Kate Micucci as Velma Dinkley and Frank Welker as both Fred Jones and Scooby-Doo.

As for who’s starring in Scoob!, Will Forte is joined by Frank Welker reprising Scooby-Doo, Zac Efron as Fred Jones, Amanda Seyfried as Daphne Blake and Gina Rodriguez as Velma Dinkley. Scoob! is also notable for featuring characters from other corners of the Hanna-Barbera franchise, including Mark Wahlberg as Blue Falcon, Jason Isaacs as Dick Dastardly, Kiersey Clemons as De Dee Sykes, Ken Jeong as Dynomutt and Tracy Morgan as Captain Caveman.

Scoob! is now available to rent or buy on VOD, and as for what movies are slated to hit theaters later in the year, you can find that information in our release schedule.

Why Scooby-Doo Made Shaggy A Vegetarian: True Story Explained

In , What's New, Scooby Doo? turned Shaggy — a character known for his enormous appetite — into a vegetarian. Here's why that happened.

In What's New, Scooby Doo?, the franchise turned Norville "Shaggy" Rogers into a vegetarian. The character, known for his enormous appetite, was always seen eating ham sandwiches, steaks, pizzas, and more alongside his favorite eating companion, Scooby-Doo, in the older cartoons, but that changed in later years, when Shaggy started leaving meat out of his meals.

The dynamic of Scooby and Shaggy has been a central aspect of the franchise since it began in with Hanna-Barbera's Scooby-Doo, Where Are You?, which ran for three seasons. In the series, Scooby and Shaggy typically got into trouble together, and were always paired up when Fred Jones would split up the Mystery Inc. gang. Nearly every time Scooby and Shaggy were alone, they would end up being chased by what they thought was a ghost or a monster. Most of the trouble that the two found themselves in arose from their eating habits, as neither character could ever resist a good meal or a late night snack.

The Scooby-Doo franchise has been rebooted with numerous cartoons and the series that aired on Cartoon Network during the early s — What's New, Scooby Doo? — made a notable change to Shaggy's diet. It was revealed in one of the episodes that Shaggy is a vegetarian. This has also been offered as an explanation for his skinny frame. This decision was made after Shaggy's voice actor, the well-known radio personality Casey Kasem, convinced the producers to make Shaggy a vegetarian [via ThinkProgress]. It was his wish that his character reflect his own values, as Casey Kasem practiced a vegan diet. Kasem had a long-held reputation for championing animal rights. He was also a big opponent of factory farming. For these reasons, it was important to Kasem that Shaggy refrain from eating meat.

In fact, changing Shaggy's diet was a condition to get Kasem to voice the character again. Kasem quit in the s and was replaced by Billy West and Scott Innes when he refused to voice Shaggy in a Burger King commercial. So when the producers of What's New, Scooby Doo? tried to get Casey Kasem back, he insisted on the change to Shaggy being made. Even after Kasem retired from the role, Shaggy has been seen continuing to follow his vegetarian diet in shows like Scooby-Doo and Guess Who? Also, the live-action version of Shaggy (played by Matthew Dillard) ate veggie burgers in Scooby-Doo: The Movie.

Though Shaggy's vegetarian lifestyle may seem like a small detail that was added to Shaggy Rogers, it was actually a change that allowed Casey Kasem to leave a lasting mark on the iconic Hanna-Barbera character. It seems fitting that one of Shaggy's character traits would be influenced by Kasem, considering that he was voiced by Kasem for decades. His Shaggy voice is a big part of what made the Scooby-Doocharacter so popular, and why it was always important that his replacements emulate Kasem in their portrayals of Shaggy.

Scooby-Doo! en Latino - Gatos Asustadizos Scooby \u0026 Shaggy - WB Kids

Imagine an alternative universe in which children’s television of the early s was taken up with references to ecstasy. The Adventures of Mandy and Molly ends with the heroes, bears in hooded tops, blowing whistles while dancing on a podium in rural Hertfordshire. If the shows got truly daring they could make reference to Scooby Snacks. That was, after all, an occasional nickname for MDMA.

Which brings us neatly to the 50th anniversary of Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! The Hanna-Barbera show was conceived to fill a gap after Action for Children’s Television (ACT), one of those endless busy-body organisations concerned with filth on telly, forced the cancellation on US TV of several cartoons deemed too violent. ACT had, in the era of the Altamont rock festival, no problem with a bunch of young weirdos travelling the country in a brightly coloured van. 

Fred (cravat), Daphne (damsel in distress) and Velma (intellectual with Agnes Varda’s haircut) bounced off outer levels of the counterculture. But Shaggy and Scooby were something else. Voiced by popular DJ Casey Kasem, Shaggy spoke in, like, the unmistakable patois of the dope fiend, man, and moved with a lobotomised languor that suggested he should stay away from heavy machinery. Both he and Scooby, apparently a great Dane, were always hungry. It’s almost as if they were in the grip of something the uninformed ACT wouldn’t balk at hearing described as “the munchies”.

The creators all expressed bewilderment about the subsequent associations drawn by stoned students

The American television of my childhood was permeated with now-bewildering allusions to the just-expired counterculture. It soaked up psychedelia as blotting paper soaked up LSD. Documentaries about the era describe how the rise of the hippie drove the firmest of wedges between generations. Novels such as Philip Roth’s American Pastoral wax movingly on that often painful divide. Yet the kids (and I do mean kids) were revelling in the reflected, smoky glow of Haight-Ashbury.

Just two months ago, streaming services welcomed The Banana Splits Movie to their menus. The enjoyable horror spoof revolves around a similarly titled show that, from to , ranked up the chemical surrealism to dizzying levels. The eponymous Splits, a power-pop rock band, comprised four creatures of terrifying aspect – Fleegle, Bingo, Drooper, and Snorky – who, when not blasting out their theme tune, talked back to a sentient cuckoo clock or parried comments from a stuffed moose head. 

Children’s entertainment had touched on surrealism before, but the crash zooms and swirling dissolves made it clear than we were in neighbouring territory to drug-culture movies such as Roger Corman’s The Trip. Everybody was involved in the same addled conversation.

HR Pufnstuf

The spookiest and trippiest series of that era was, however, the still ineffably strange HR Pufnstuf. I know middle-aged people who, to this day, shudder at the thought of the Krofft brothers’ series concerning a boy shipwrecked on island inhabited by talking trees, singing frogs and a talking flute. Of course, such things appear throughout fairy tales, but the tone of HR Pufnstuf rooted it firmly in the acid penumbra. The colours were exhausting. The camera angles were freaky. The puppets all seemed on the point of pharmaceutical breakdown. The show was actually called HR Pufnstuf, for Pete’s sake. Puf-n-stuf? Get it?

Inevitably the creators all expressed bewilderment about the subsequent associations drawn by stoned students. Then again, John Lennon always claimed that, rather than referencing LSD (perish the thought), Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds got its title from a drawing by the Beatle’s young son. Yeah, right. “We did not intentionally do anything related to drugs in the story,” Marty Krofft, co-creator of Pufnstuf, said years later. “They may have lent themselves to that culture at the time, but we didn’t ascribe that meaning to them.” The folk behind Scooby-Doo were similarly appalled at such accusations.

A bit of this made its way across the Atlantic. Dylan, the rabbit in the Anglo-French production The Magic Roundabout, was always suspiciously stoned of speech. Lord knows what was going on in Wanderly Wagon. But the more explicitly psychedelic stuff tended to be an American phenomenon. We must take the makers at face value when they say they weren’t trying to lure children towards hashish dens, but they cannot have been entirely unaware that they were drawing influences from a controversial, sometimes notorious counterculture.

What surprises now is that there was so little fuss from conservative curtain-twitchers. We are wrong to assume retrospective wisdom when re-evaluating popular entertainment – plenty of writers saw the problem with Friends 20 years ago – but the shifts in culture were, in the late s, so jarring that it was hard for gate-keepers to maintain focus. Maybe the dog was just hungry. Maybe the Banana Splits were just everyday aliens. It hardly mattered. By the time of Watergate, the brief, weird riot was over. It was a trip while it lasted.

Shaggy Rogers

Not to be confused with Shaggy (musician).

Fictional character in Scooby-Doo

Norville "Shaggy" Rogers is a fictional character in the Scooby-Doo franchise. He is known as a detective and cowardly slacker and the long-time best friend of his equally cowardly dog, Scooby-Doo. Like Scooby-Doo, Shaggy enjoys eating more than solving mysteries, but can ultimately step up to challenges and devote himself to detective work when necessary.

Character description[edit]

Shaggy has a characteristic speech pattern which is marked by his frequent use of the filler word "like". He also sports a rough goatee. His signature attire consists of a green v-neck T-shirt and maroon or brown bell-bottom pants, both of which fit loosely. In The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo and early made-for-TV films, he wore a red v-neck and blue jeans.

Both Scooby and Shaggy are readily bribed with Scooby Snacks due to their mutual large appetites. Both display tendencies toward loafing and cowardice. Both justify their hunger by insisting that "Being in a constant state of terror makes us constantly hungry!" in Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island. Shaggy's favorite dish is "extra cheese pizza with pickles" (as revealed in the TV film Scooby-Doo! Abracadabra-Doo). In "Bedlam in the Big Top", he says he used to run track and in "What a Night for a Knight" that he was a gymnast – both of which explain his uncanny skills in quickly evading villains. He has been shown, in some instances, to be able to run even faster than Scooby, even when the latter is running on all fours. The episode "A Clue for Scooby-Doo" from the inaugural series Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!, reveals that his taste for unlikely food combinations (chocolate-covered hot dogs and liverwurst "a la mode", for example) is a consequence of an infant Shaggy receiving a garbage disposal unit for his first toy. In Scooby-Doo! and the Monster of Mexico, Fred states that the reason Shaggy eats so much (while maintaining his slender physique) is his "high metabolism". However, in Scooby-Doo: Behind the Scenes, Fred states that the real reason Shaggy is so skinny is because he is a vegetarian (a reference to Casey Kasem's veganism). Shaggy is capable of impressive feats of athleticism when he is scared; however, these abilities are invariably used for comedy, with Shaggy apparently only capable of such feats when panicked. In Scooby-Doo! Camp Scare, in frustration at being trapped, he shakes the iron bars of an old-fashioned jail cell so hard they collapse.

Shaggy seems to become extremely scared when faced with monsters or other frightening situations, usually displaying cowardice to a much greater degree than any other character except for Scooby. This was explained in the Legend of the Phantosaur as a possible type of panic disorder; in this instance, he was temporarily cured with hypnotherapy.


The four teenage lead characters of Scooby-Doo were inspired by four of the main characters from the –63 American sitcom The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis, with Shaggy having been derived from the character Maynard G. Krebs, as played by Bob Denver.[4] Maynard's beatnik-style goatee, general appearance, and use of the word "like" all found their way into the character of Shaggy, with the base personality of the character updated to make him a hippie rather than a beatnik.[5]

Casey Kasem, the first voice actor for Shaggy, said that he originally felt uncomfortable after being assigned to Shaggy. Kasem stated that while he was "hip to what hippies were about", he had never before portrayed a hippie character. Kasem had wanted to portray Fred Jones, and Frank Welker had wanted to portray Shaggy. Instead, the CBS network assigned Kasem to Shaggy and Welker to Fred.[6] Unsure of what the voice of a hippie would sound like, Kasem based his vocal style and mannerisms for Shaggy on those of Richard Crenna's character Walter Denton from the radio/televisionsitcomOur Miss Brooks.[7]

Kasem stated that as he continued to voice Shaggy, the character evolved. Kasem explained that the "voice dynamics" improved and that his laughs increasingly gained quality. Kasem added that Shaggy in is "more frightened today than he was at the beginning."[6] Kasem convinced the producers that Shaggy should be a vegetarian, like himself, in [8][9]


Matthew Lillard, seen here in character in the film, portrayed Shaggy in two films and has provided Shaggy's voice since

Radio disc-jockey and actor Casey Kasem created the character's voice. Kasem voiced Shaggy for 28 years, from Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! in until the Johnny Bravo crossover episode "Bravo Dooby-Doo" in Starting with What's New, Scooby-Doo? in and Looney Tunes: Back in Action in , Kasem resumed the role and continued to do so until his retirement in Billy West voiced the character in the film Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island (). Scott Innes (who has also voiced Scooby and Scrappy-Doo) voiced Shaggy in the – direct-to-video films, and in video games until Innes reprised Shaggy in Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law and a DirecTV commercial featuring the Scooby gang in Scott Menville voiced Shaggy in Shaggy & Scooby-Doo Get a Clue!. Upon Casey Kasem's official retirement in , Matthew Lillard, who played Shaggy in the and live-action films, took over as the main voice of Shaggy.[10] Lillard also played Shaggy in Robot Chicken and Mad. Nick Palatas played Shaggy in the and live-action films. Will Forte voiced the character for the animated film Scoob! while Iain Armitage voices Shaggy as a child.[11][12]

In most appearances, Shaggy is from Coolsville, Ohio. When he was old enough to go to school, he adopted Scooby–Doo from the Knittingham Puppy Farm. Later on, he met Fred Jones, Daphne Blake, and Velma Dinkley. They became friends and they decided to form Mystery Incorporated. According to Scooby-Doo: Behind the Scenes, Shaggy was the one who bought the Mystery Machine and gave it its paint job; Fred wanted it painted red.

According to Scooby-Doo: Behind the Scenes, Shaggy's old nickname was Buzz (apparently for his buzz cut) until his tenth birthday. Shaggy once had to battle an unhealthy habit of overeating Scooby Snacks; Velma calculated that he once ate exactly forty-five percent of his body weight. This led to him dieting and starting a new hobby: collecting decorator belt buckles. Shaggy has the largest collection of decorator belt buckles in the world and currently owns six hundred and fifty-three. He also states that he wears a different belt buckle for every mystery if one pays attention (the joke being that his baggy shirt always hides them).

In Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated, he is from Crystal Cove along with the other members of Mystery Incorporated. His parents' names are Colton and Paula Rogers and appear to be quite well off, living in a mansion. He dates Velma for a short period during the first season.

Shaggy and Scooby make a cameo appearance in the live-action/animated film Looney Tunes: Back in Action, where he berates Matthew Lillard over his portrayal of Shaggy in the live-action film and threaten to "come after" him if he screws up in the sequel.

Shaggy also appears in the film Space Jam: A New Legacy. His design is the same from the film, Scoob!.

Other appearances[edit]

Video games[edit]

Shaggy appears as a playable character, along with Scooby, in the crossover video game Lego Dimensions. Shaggy's character includes the Mystery Machine. Matthew Lillard reprises his role for the game.

Internet memes[edit]

Shaggy's appearance as a skilled brawler and daredevil while in a hypnotized state after someone says the word "bad" in Scooby-Doo! Legend of the Phantosaur became the subject of an internet meme in , which began when YouTube user Midya uploaded "Ultra Instinct Shaggy", a video juxtaposing a scene from the film where Shaggy single-handedly defeats a biker gang with "Kyūkyoku no Battle", a song by Akira Kushida from the Dragon Ball Super soundtrack. This later spawned numerous fan art depictions of Shaggy as a superhuman or even godlike being similar to a Dragon Ball character,[45] as well as screenshots of behind-the-scenes interviews from the film with fake captions of the cast members purportedly attesting to Shaggy's "immense power" on set.[46][47] The meme also led to a petition to add Shaggy as a DLC character in Mortal Kombat 11,[48] which brought the attention of both Mortal Kombat series co-creator Ed Boon and Matthew Lillard.[49][50] Despite not making it to the game, Shaggy would appear in his “Ultra Instinct” form in the animated film, Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of the Realms, where he appears as a cameo on the Warner Bros. Animation logo grabbing Scorpion by the neck and pulling him into the Netherrealm.[51][52]


Some viewers of the original Scooby-Doo believed that Shaggy smoked marijuana due to his hippie behavior and constant hunger. In a Newsweek article, Casey Kasem was asked if he had ever observed that subtext in the series and Kasem responded that "there wasn't anything like that at all", explaining "[I] guess it's because, I don't know, it was a wholesome show from beginning to end" and was not aware of the fan viewpoint until the interviewer brought it up.[6] The makers of the Scooby-Doo film shot several scenes referencing Shaggy's supposed drug use, but few of those scenes were included in the final film.[6] One scene which made it into the film has a minor character introduce herself to Shaggy as "Mary Jane" (a slang term for marijuana), and he responds, "Like, that is my favorite name." Matthew Lillard, the current voice of Shaggy, does not think he smokes marijuana: "He just seems like that. He acts a little goofy and high, he's lovable and scared&#;&#; and just happens to have the munchies."[53]

In an online radio interview with host Stu Shostak, series creators Joe Ruby and Ken Spears recalled that they never intended for Shaggy to be a smoker of marijuana, and "took umbrage" at the jokes in the film.[5]
