Scooby-Doo (character)

Animated cartoon dog

Scooby-Doo is the eponymous character and protagonist of the animated television franchise of the same name created in 1969 by the American animation company Hanna-Barbera.[1] He is a male Great Dane and lifelong companion of amateur detective Shaggy Rogers, with whom he shares many personality traits. He features a mix of both canine and human behaviors (reminiscent of other talking animals in Hanna-Barbera's series), and is treated by his friends more or less as an equal. He speaks in a slurred, dog-like voice. His catchphrase is "Scooby-Dooby-Doo!"

History

Writers Joe Ruby and Ken Spears created the original Scooby-Doo series, Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!, for Hanna-Barbera for CBS's 1969–1970 Saturday morning cartoon schedule. Originally titled Mysteries Five, the dog who later became Scooby was originally more of a sidekick character – a bongo-playing dog named "Too Much" whose breed varied between Great Dane and sheepdog between treatments.[2][3]

By the time the series was pitched to the network as Who's S-S-Scared? in early 1969, Too Much was solidified as a cowardly Great Dane. Both the dog and the series would be renamed Scooby-Doo by Fred Silverman, CBS's head of daytime programming, between its unsuccessful first pitch and a second pitch, which earned the show a green light. Silverman stated that he came up with the name from the syllables "doo-be-doo-be-doo" in Frank Sinatra's hit song "Strangers in the Night",[4][5] but the term "skooby-doo" had already been in use long before that as Cockney rhyming slang for the word "clue" (fitting with the show's mystery genre). A character in the 1953 TV film Swingin' Together is named Skooby-doo, and the name was featured in the title of the single "Feelin' So Good (S.K.O.O.B.Y.-D.O.O.)",[6] released just a few months earlier in 1968 by The Archies, a fictional band from the CBS series The Archie Show that was overseen and intensively monitored by Silverman as CBS's head of children's programming.[7]

Taking notes from a Hanna-Barbera colleague who was also a breeder of Great Danes, production designer Iwao Takamoto designed the Scooby-Doo character with a sloping chin, spots, a long tail, a sloped back, and bow legs – all traits in direct opposition to those of a prize-winning purebred Great Dane.[8] In defining the personality of the dog, Ruby and Spears looked for inspiration to the characters played by Bob Hope in his horror-comedies – a coward who shows traits of bravery when his friends are in danger.[2] Veteran H-B voice artist Don Messick was the original voice of Scooby and spent decades working on the character.

Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! premiered on CBS on September 13, 1969, at 10:30 a.m. Eastern Time. It ran for two seasons, with a total of 25 episodes. Its final first-run episode aired on October 31, 1970.

Personality

In most incarnations of the series, Scooby is regarded as a unique Great Dane dog who is able to speak in broken English, and usually puts the letter "R" in front of words and noises made. Other incarnations, such as A Pup Named Scooby-Doo, present him as a speech-impaired dog in the larger fictional universe as nobody in Coolsville seems bothered by his speaking ability. In recent years (most notably in Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated), Scooby is able to speak in complete sentences and has more dialogue, though partially retaining his speech impediment. He consistently shows about the same level of intelligence as his friends, while also being subject to the same knack for clumsiness and moments of being dimwitted as well.

Different iterations of the character have been developed and expanded in the various series featuring the characters, many of them contradicting, such as the original series and the recent live-action films where Shaggy and Scooby first meet as older teenagers for the first time. This contradicts the animated series A Pup Named Scooby-Doo, where they know each other from almost infancy, though the films may be seen as having a different continuity altogether than the cartoon products. As an adult canine, Scooby is usually treated as a mix of a pet and a friend by his companions.

In all versions of the character, Scooby and Shaggy share several personality traits, mostly being cowardly and perpetually hungry. Yet their friends (Fred, Daphne, and Velma) encourage them to go after the costumed villains, usually with "Scooby Snacks". The biscuit-like dog treat or cookie snack is usually shaped like a bone or, in later versions of the cartoons, Scooby's dog tag. However, Scooby's inherent loyalty and courage do often force him to take a more heroic stance even without any prodding. Scooby is also extremely ticklish, and this is seen in many of the television series and films.

Scooby has a speech impediment and tends to pronounce most words as if they begin with an "R"; however, most characters are able to understand him almost perfectly. In most iterations, he keeps his sentences relatively short, usually using charades for anything longer than three or four words. His catchphrase, usually howled at the end of every production, is "Scooby-Dooby-Doo!" or "Rooby-Rooby-Roo". Scooby was voiced by Don Messick through Arabian Nights in 1994, after which point Messick quit smoking; quitting smoking changed his voice and prevented him from achieving the same raspy vocal effect (despite Messick's efforts, he suffered a career-ending stroke in 1996 and died in 1997, before any further Scooby-Doo productions were made). Messick is also known for providing the voice of the dogs Astro on The Jetsons and Muttley (who snickered).[9] The characteristic speech impediments of Scooby and Astro are so similar that Astro's signature phrase, "Ruh-roh!", is popularly and improperly attributed to Scooby (as in "Ruh-roh, Raggy!"); of the two voices, Scooby's had a deeper and throatier timbre than Astro's.

Appearance and anatomy

Scooby is brown from head to toe with several distinctive black spots on his upper body and does not seem to have a melanistic mask. He is generally a quadruped but displays bipedal 'human' characteristics occasionally. Scooby also has opposable thumbs and can use his front paws like hands. He has a black nose and wears an off-yellow, diamond-shaped-tagged blue collar with an "SD" (his initials) and has four toes on each foot. Unlike other dogs, Scooby only has one pad on each of his paws (so that it was easier to draw in the Scooby-Doo Annuals).

Scooby has a fully prehensile tail he can use to swing from or press buttons. Both his head and tail are malleable and useful as a communication aid or creating a distraction.

Creator Iwao Takamoto later explained that before he designed the character, he first spoke to a Great Dane breeder, who described to him the desirable characteristics of a pedigree dog. Takamoto then drew Scooby as the opposite of this. He said "I decided to go the opposite [way] and gave him a hump back, bowed legs, small chin and such. Even his color is wrong."[10]

According to the official magazine that accompanied the 2002 film, Scooby is seven years old.

Voice actors

Don Messick originated the character's speech patterns and provided Scooby-Doo's voice in every Scooby-Doo production from 1969 until his retirement in 1996. Voice actor Hadley Kay voiced the character for a brief period in 1997, for two episodes of Johnny Bravo, and a few television commercials. Scott Innes (also the then-voice of Shaggy) voiced Scooby-Doo in four late 1990s/early 2000s direct-to-video films and continued to voice the character regularly for video games (such as Scooby-Doo! Night of 100 Frights), toys and some commercials until 2008. Neil Fanning provided the voice of the computer-generated Scooby-Doo in the 2002 live-action film and its 2004 sequel. Frank Welker (also the voice of Fred since 1969) has voiced Scooby since 2002, taking over beginning with What's New, Scooby-Doo? and other spin-offs including the live-action prequels Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Begins and Scooby-Doo! Curse of the Lake Monster. Dave Coulier and Seth Green have both voiced the character in Robot Chicken.

Reception

Casey Kasem, the previous voice actor for Shaggy Rogers, said that Scooby is "the star of the show—the Shaquille O'Neal of the show." Kasem explained "People love animals more than they love people. Am I right or wrong? They give more love to their pets than they give to people. Scooby is vulnerable and lovable and not brave, and very much like the kids who watch. But like kids, he likes to think that he's brave."[51]

List of Scooby-Doo characters

Wikipedia list article

This is a list of Scooby-Doo characters. Scooby-Doo is an American animated franchise based around several animated television series and animated films, as well as live action movies. There are five main characters in the franchise: Scooby-Doo, Norville "Shaggy" Rogers, Fred Jones, Velma Dinkley, and Daphne Blake—known as "Mystery Incorporated". There are also several recurring characters throughout the franchise, including their parents, friends, allies, and enemies. The original series, Scooby-Doo, Where Are You?, premiered in 1969, and has spawned off many follow-up series, and several direct-to-DVD movies. These series have introduced several other characters and additions to the gang, most notably Scooby's cousin Scooby-Dum and nephew Scrappy-Doo.

Mystery Incorporated[edit]

Scooby-Doo[edit]

Main article: Scooby-Doo (character)

Scooby-Doo is the eponymous character in the Scooby-Doo animated television series created by the popular American animation company Hanna-Barbera. Scooby-Doo is the pet and lifelong companion of Shaggy Rogers and in many iterations, including the original series, is regarded as a unique anthropomorphicGreat Dane dog who is able to speak in broken English, unlike most other dogs in his reality, and usually puts the letter R in front of words spoken. Other incarnations, such as A Pup Named Scooby-Doo, present talking dogs like Scooby as quite common.

The head of children's programming at CBS, Fred Silverman, came up with the character's name from the syllables "doo-be-doo-be-doo" in Frank Sinatra's hit song "Strangers in the Night".[1]

From 1969 to 1994, Scooby was voiced by Don Messick. In the 1997 episode of Johnny Bravo, Scooby was voiced by Hadley Kay. From 1998 to 2001, he was voiced by Scott Innes, who also voiced the character in video game projects (including PC, DVD and board games), commercials and some toys until 2008. In Scooby-Doo and Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed, Scooby was voiced by Neil Fanning. Scooby is currently (2002–present) voiced by Frank Welker (the voice of Fred Jones).

Shaggy Rogers[edit]

Main article: Shaggy Rogers

Norville "Shaggy" Rogers is a fictional character from the American animated television series Scooby-Doo, about the adventures of four crime-solving teenagers and Shaggy's pet great dane, Scooby-Doo. Shaggy is a cowardly slacker more interested in eating than solving mysteries. He is the only Scooby-Doo character (besides Scooby) to appear in all iterations of the franchise.

From 1969 to 1997, Shaggy was voiced by Casey Kasem; he would return to voice him again from 2002 to 2009. In Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island, Shaggy was voiced by Billy West. From 1999 to 2001, he was voiced by Scott Innes, who also voiced Shaggy in video game projects (including PC, DVD and board games), commercials and some toys until 2009. In Shaggy & Scooby-Doo Get a Clue!, Shaggy was voiced by Scott Menville. Shaggy is currently (2010–present) being voiced by Matthew Lillard, who played Shaggy in the live-action theatrical films. He was portrayed by Nick Palatas in the Cartoon Network prequel films, Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Begins (2009) and Scooby-Doo! Curse of the Lake Monster (2010). Will Forte voices Shaggy as an adult with Iain Armitage voicing his younger self in the theatrical animated film Scoob.

Fred Jones[edit]

Main article: Fred Jones (Scooby-Doo)

Sometimes called "Freddie", he wears a blue and/or white shirt (which is sometimes worn under a white shirt, sweater, or jacket) and blue jeans. In the original depictions, Fred wears a 16 1/2 size orange ascot. In the 1990s direct-to-video movies and in the 2000s series What's New, Scooby-Doo?, Fred's outfit was given an update, with the removal of his orange ascot and two blue stripes added to his sleeves. He is often shown constructing various Rube Goldberg traps for villains, which Scooby-Doo and/or Shaggy would often set off by mistake, causing the villain to be captured another way. Fred usually takes the lead in solving mysteries. When searching for clues, Fred and Daphne usually go together with Velma coming along, but sometimes Fred and Daphne would pair off, having Velma go with Shaggy and Scooby.

In A Pup Named Scooby-Doo, Fred was depicted as being somewhat less intelligent, believing in legends such as Bigfoot and mole people, and liked reading a magazine called The National Exaggerator. In each episode, Fred would (usually wrongly) blame the crime on the neighbourhood bully Red Herring (a play on the idiom red herring). In his teenage version, he is shown to have many interests (obsessions for traps, martial arts, wrestling, and weight lifting). He is shown to be hopeless at speaking any language other than English. In an episode of What's New, Scooby-Doo?, Fred is learning to speak French - badly - and Daphne suggests he just sticks to saying "oui oui", to which he replies, "I already did that before we left the hotel". He is typically shown to be oblivious to Daphne's romantic interests, while at the same time falling for other girls.

In the episode "The Song of Mystery" from Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated, he is called Fredrick by his tutor Mary-Ann Geerdon. However, in Scooby-Doo! Adventures: The Mystery Map he is called Fredward.

Fred is voiced by Frank Welker, who has retained this role throughout every incarnation of each series where Fred is portrayed as a teenager from 1969 to 1983 and again since 1997. In A Pup Named Scooby-Doo, (where he is portrayed as a child) he was voiced by a former child actor Carl Steven.

He was portrayed by Freddie Prinze Jr. in the 2002-2004 live-action films and by Robbie Amell in the Cartoon Network prequel films, Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Begins and Scooby-Doo! Curse of the Lake Monster.

Zac Efron voices Fred as an adult while Pierce Gagnon voices his younger self in the theatrical animated film Scoob.

Daphne Blake[edit]

Main article: Daphne Blake

Together with her other teenage companions, Fred Jones, Shaggy Rogers, Velma Dinkley, and Shaggy's pet great daneScooby-Doo, Daphne would engage in solving various mysteries. Daphne was portrayed as enthusiastic, but clumsy and danger-prone, hence her nickname "Danger-Prone Daphne" (revealed by her cousin, Shannon, being danger-prone is a Blake family trait in Scooby-Doo! and the Loch Ness Monster), member of the gang, who always follows her intuition. She serves as the damsel in distress and would occasionally get kidnapped, tied up, gagged and left imprisoned. Scooby and Shaggy usually save her, but sometimes Fred and Velma or even the whole gang do it. But as the franchise went on, she became a stronger, more independent character, who can take care of herself. Daphne's character is the most developed in the starring cast, going from a klutzy teenager to a successful journalist to an ingenuous fashionista to a black belt martial artist. Daphne is also seen as the moral support in adaptations such as Mystery Incorporated. When Scooby is nowhere to be found, Daphne also shouts "Scooby-Doo! Where are you?!". In the later series, Daphne is the one who owns the Mystery Machine and lets Fred drive it due to her crush on him. She occasionally helps the rest of the gang capture the villain by using some random, yet helpful, accessories in her purse, backpack, or any other bag she has at the moment. For example, in one episode, the gang is tied to posts by ropes, so Daphne pulls out her credit card and slices the ropes in half, leaving her free to untie the other members of the gang.

During the series' fourth incarnation, Scooby-Doo and Scrappy-Doo, some of the episodes focused on Daphne. In the episode "Shiver and Shake, That Demon's a Snake", Daphne buys an idol that is cursed by the snake demon. On the sailboat, the snake demon attacks Daphne and demands an idol to return. Daphne throws it to Scooby, Shaggy and Scrappy. In the episode "The Scary Sky Skeleton", Daphne is reunited with her old friend, Wendy. In the episode "I Left My Neck in San Francisco", Daphne becomes sick and she's unable to help the gang to solve the mystery about the Lady Vampire of the Bay. Due to the vampire's look, Daphne's unseen reflection in the mirror, the bat flying around Daphne's bed and herself returning to bed a little later, Scooby, Shaggy and Scrappy are convinced that Daphne is a vampire. When the vampiress is revealed to be Lefty Callahan, Scooby, Shaggy and Scrappy realize they made a mistake with suspecting Daphne and she's feeling well again.

Her usual appearance consists of a purple dress, pink pantyhose, purple shoes, and a green scarf. In Scooby-Doo and the Cyber Chase, she wore a purple and green three-piece suit with matching shoes. As a child, she wore a pink sweater, red skirt, and pink pantyhose with white go-go boots. In The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo, she wore some other purple clothes with purple pants and purple high heels.

While not as clever as Velma, Daphne would always solve her problems in a different way. The character later became more confident and started playing a more active role as time went on, a result of changing attitudes towards women during the 1970s and 1980s. In What's New, Scooby-Doo?, Daphne has also been known to open locks or do other tasks with strange items from her purse.

The youthful pre-teenage Daphne portrayed in A Pup Named Scooby-Doo would commonly call upon her butler, Jenkins, to do various tasks, such as riding her of people, beating up a monster, freaking out, etc. The younger Daphne is shown (along with her parents) as not believing in ghost/monsters/supernatural (one of her catchphrases in that series was "There is no such thing as ghosts/monsters!", a trait she lacks outside the A Pup Named Scooby-Doo series. This Daphne is also shown to be more narcissistic and sarcastic than usual.

In the movie Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island, Daphne as a young adult, had a very successful investigative TV series called Coast to Coast with Daphne Blake on a fictionalchannel called "Americana", which the show had aired on for two seasons. The producer of the show was Fred Jones, with who she began a relationship with within the film's ending.

Throughout the various incarnations of the character, there has been speculation that Daphne and Fred had an attraction toward each other. This is emphasized in Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated. Throughout the first season, they are shown to be actively dating with Fred showing more of his feelings toward Daphne.

Daphne was voiced by Stefanianna Christopherson from 1969 to 1970. She was replaced by Heather North who would voice Daphne until 1997 and again for the two direct-to-DVD movies, Scooby-Doo! and the Legend of the Vampire and Scooby-Doo! and the Monster of Mexico. Daphne was voiced by Mary Kay Bergman from 1998 to 1999. Daphne has been voiced by Grey DeLisle since 2001. In A Pup Named Scooby-Doo Daphne was voiced by Kellie Martin. She was portrayed by Sarah Michelle Gellar in the 2002-2004 live-action films and by Kate Melton in the 2009-2010 live-action telefilms.

Amanda Seyfried voices Daphne as an adult with Mckenna Grace as her younger self in the theatrical animated film Scoob.

Velma Dinkley[edit]

Main article: Velma Dinkley

Throughout her various incarnations, Velma is usually portrayed as a highly intelligent young woman with various interests ranging from highly specified sciences (which in the "Scooby and Scrappy-Doo" series leads her to pursue a career as a NASA research scientist) or merely being very well read on various and sometimes obscure information, such as ancient Viking writing (as in the third Scooby-Doo series "The New Scooby-Doo Mysteries"). In Scooby-Doo! Abracadabra-Doo, Velma is described by her younger sister Madelyn as being "born with a mystery book in her hand". Consequently, Velma is usually the one to figure out the mystery, sometimes with the help of Fred and Daphne.

In the first series, notably Where Are You! and New Movies, a running gag is Velma's severe near-sightedness and her trouble with keeping her glasses on her face (usually after falling off while being chased by the villain).

When Scooby is too afraid to volunteer to help with a mission, Velma often offers him a dog treat called a "Scooby Snack" as a bribe. Her catchphrases are: "Jinkies!" and "My glasses! I can't see without my glasses!"

Like all of the Scooby-Doo gang, later ret-conned as Mystery Incorporated members, Velma has differing personal backgrounds and histories depending on which series one is referring to.

In the original Where Are You! series, Velma attended the same high school as the rest of the gang (as stated in the episode "A Knight for a Night"). However, in the second series, The New Scooby-Doo Movies, Velma is said to have graduated from a different high school than her friends (as stated in the episode "Spirited Spooked Sports Show"). In the current series, Velma is stated to be a native of Ohio, unlike the other members of the gang. But on one occasion, she mentioned she's from Texas.

Velma was voiced by Nicole Jaffe from 1969 to 1973, who would voice the character again in the two direct-to-DVD movies, Scooby-Doo! and the Legend of the Vampire and Scooby-Doo! and the Monster of Mexico. Jaffe was later replaced by Pat Stevens, who would voice Velma from 1976 to 1979; Marla Frumkin replaced her from 1979-1980 and would voice the character again in 1984. Velma was voiced by B.J. Ward from 1997 to 2002, by Mindy Cohn from 2002-2015 and in A Pup Named Scooby-Doo, Velma was voiced by Christina Lange. In Be Cool, Scooby-Doo!, (2015-2018) Velma was voiced by Kate Micucci. Gina Rodriguez voiced Velma as an adult with Ariana Greenblatt voicing her younger self in the animated theatrical film Scoob.

Secondary characters introduced in The Scooby-Doo Show/Scooby-Doo and Scrappy-Doo[edit]

Scrappy-Doo[edit]

Main article: Scrappy-Doo

Scrappy-Doo was added to the cast of Scooby-Doo to save the series' ratings, which by 1979 had begun to sink to the point of cancellation threats from ABC. After his addition to the show proved to be a ratings success, Hanna-Barbera restructured the show around Scrappy in 1980. The original format of four teenagers and their dog(s) solving supernatural mysteries for a half-hour was eschewed for simpler, more comedic adventures which involved real supernatural villains (the villains in previous Scooby episodes were almost always regular humans in disguise).

Scrappy remained an integral part of the Scooby-Doo franchise, on both television and in Scooby-related licensed products and merchandising, through the end of the 1980s. He was also briefly the star of his own seven-minute shorts — the Scrappy and Yabba Doo segments of The Scooby & Scrappy-Doo/Puppy Hour. Teamed with his uncle Yabba-Doo and Deputy Dusty, he helped maintain law and order in a small town in the American west. In later years, the presence of Scrappy-Doo has been criticized as having had a negative effect on the various Scooby-Doo series of the 1980s.[2] However, the gradual decline of Scooby-Doo has been credited to other factors as well, such as changes in format.[3] Scrappy-Doo has become the symbol of an irritatingly overexuberant or cute character added to a series in an attempt to maintain ratings, a phenomenon also known as Cousin Oliver Syndrome.[4] Due to the general perception of the character by audiences, Scrappy-Doo has not appeared in any Scooby-related spinoffs since the made-for-television movie Scooby-Doo and the Reluctant Werewolf in 1988, with four exceptions:

In the first live-action Scooby-Doo theatrical film — where Scrappy played a decidedly negative role, wanting revenge on Mystery Inc., for abandoning him years ago (he was kicked out for continuously urinating on Daphne, being obnoxious, and the final straw was when he tried to vote himself as the leader of Mystery Inc.). When Velma is talking to a guy at the bar who likes her, she tells him that Scrappy was not a puppy, but had a glandular disorder. Although he nearly succeeds in performing the 'Darkopolypse Ritual', which would give a group of demons the power to rule Earth for the next ten thousand years, his plan is foiled and he and his minions are arrested because he underestimated the Mystery Inc. team, inviting them all to the theme park where he was conducting the ritual after they broke up years before simply to make them witness his triumph when he only needed Scooby present, intending to use Scooby's 'pure' soul to complete his ritual. At the conclusion of the film, Velma says that Scrappy's full name is Scrappy Cornelius Doo.

Scooby-Doo! and the Goblin King (2008) has a scene where a monstrous Mystery Machine crashes through a carnival stand containing dolls of Scrappy, and running over them. Like all the previous direct-to-video movies, Scrappy never made an appearance.

Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated (2010), in the episode "The Siren's Song", Fred and Daphne come across a statue of Scrappy in the Crystal Cove Haunted Museum among the statues of their defeated foes. Daphne remarks it's been awhile since she's seen him before Fred pulls her away, reminding her they all promised never to speak of him again.

Scooby-Dum[edit]

Scooby-Dum is a supporting character in The Scooby Doo Show, voiced by Daws Butler.[5] Scooby-Dum, a gray MerleGreat Dane with spots and buck teeth is Scooby-Doo's dim-witted cousin (his lineage is dubious because Shaggy has said that he is his brother on one occasion but also his cousin, though it is most likely that they are cousins).[6] Dum lives with Ma and Pa Skillet, in the Okefenokee swamp of southern Georgia. Whenever Doo and Dum greet each other, Scooby-Doo yells, "Scooby, Dooby, Dooby, Dum" and Scooby-Dum says, "Scooby, doobie, doo." They then do a special handshake involving two high fives. Whenever he hears the word "Clue", Scooby-Dum invariably pulls out a magnifying glass and, intoning the opening four notes of Beethoven'sFifth Symphony, chants, "Dum, dum, dum, DUM!", even after a mystery is solved. The inclusion of Scooby-Dum is considered one of the first missteps in Scooby-Doo cartoons.[7]

In Laff-a-Lympics, Scooby-Dum is also a teammate for the Scooby Doobies.

Yabba-Doo[edit]

Yabba-Doo is a white Great Dane. His adventures take place out west, where he fights crime with his master, a bumbling deputy named Deputy Dusty, and his enthusiastic nephew Scrappy-Doo. In contrast to Scooby's catchphrase of "Scooby-Dooby-Doo!", Yabba's was "Yippity-Yabbity-Doo!" (and not "Yabba-Dabba-Doo!", presumably because of Fred Flintstone's use of that particular catchphrase). Yabba is voiced by Don Messick.

Scooby-Dee[edit]

Scooby-Dee is a female Great Dane, with white fur, first appearing in The Scooby-Doo Show. She was a character in the episode titled "The Chiller Diller Movie Thriller", as a distant cousin of Scooby's, who helped them solve the mystery. She also has a cameo appearances in the second-season episode of What's New, Scooby-Doo?, "Homeward Hound", where she is one of many dogs seen at the dog show the gang is attending. She is seen walking past the screen in two separate scenes in the beginning.

Scooby-Dee was meant to return to The Scooby-Doo Show as a girlfriend to Scooby-Doo, but the show ended before that could happen.[8] Scooby-Dee was voiced by Janet Waldo, better known to many viewers as the voice of Judy Jetson.

Introduced in The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo[edit]

Vincent Van Ghoul[edit]

In The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo, Vincent Van Ghoul is a renowned magician and warlock, with extensive knowledge of the supernatural. He is first visited by Shaggy, Scooby, Daphne and Scrappy with Flim-Flam, after they need some help with their plane, which has crash-landed in a nearby temple in Tibet. After Shaggy and Scooby unwittingly unleash thirteen terrible ghosts from the chest in which they were locked, Van Ghoul tells them that they must trap them again. In the show's opening, a terrified Shaggy moans "Why us?", to which Van Ghoul replies "Because you let them out!"

Despite being very angry with the pair for unleashing the ghosts, he agrees to help them in their ghost-questing, and gives the group a crystal ball through which he can contact them. He shares personality traits with his voice actor, Vincent Price, like having a very morbid and dark sense of humour.

In Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated, Van Ghoul is an actor who does horror films (much like Vincent Price, who was the inspiration for his character). He is constantly referenced and glimpses of his movies can be seen throughout the series (according to Shaggy he has done more than 400 movies). He makes a full appearance in the episode "Nightfright", when Shaggy and Scooby win an essay contest to have dinner with him, and later in the episode "Theater of Doom", where he directs the production of Crystal Cove's theatre stage of the legend of Friar Serra and his faithful donkey Porto, who supposedly saved many inhabitants from a tsunami that destroyed Crystal Cove.

  • In The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo, Van Ghoul is voiced by Vincent Price. In Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated and Scooby-Doo! and the Curse of the 13th Ghost, Van Ghoul is voiced by Maurice LaMarche impersonating Price.

Flim Flam[edit]

Flim Flam was a part of the gang for all thirteen episodes of The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo. A preteen Tibetan child, Film Flam is a con artist with the personality of an archetypical American used-car salesman. He is seen in the first episode, "To All the Ghouls I've Loved Before", trying to sell a magic concoction to a local town located in the Himalayan Mountains. However, he was kicked out of town, and managed to meet up with the current Scooby gang, who was trying to find the Mystery Machine (an airplane) hidden by Bogel and Weerd. He took them to a psychic (Vincent Van Ghoul) who could help the whole group find their mode of transportation, and warned them of ensuing danger. Daphne is a given a drink laced with wolfsbane due to the fact the townspeople believe that she overheard their secret, and when the night falls on the town, the group finds out that the whole town is actually a werewolf cult. They are pursued into the sewers, and Flim Flam opens one of his products to spray on Daphne, who reverts to normal. He goes on to cure the rest of the townspeople, who are ever grateful for the help. When Scrappy, Daphne and Flim Flam question them as to how they got that way in the first place, they are told that they were turned into werewolves as revenge for sealing the Thirteen Ghosts into the Chest of Demons, and the current group races to keep Shaggy and Scooby from opening the chest, but to no avail. After Shaggy and Scooby open the chest and release the thirteen ghosts within it, Flim Flam decides to join them in their hunt to return them to the chest.

In the Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated episode "The Siren's Song", Fred and Daphne come across a statue of Flim Flam in the Crystal Cove Haunted Museum among the statues of their defeated foes. Daphne remarks that Flim Flam was arrested and received a harsh sentence of 25 years to life for being a juvenile con-artist (this was an inside joke; 25 years had passed between 13 Ghosts in 1985 and Mystery Incorporated in 2010). It is also referenced that Fred was away at trapping camp during the events of The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo.

An older teen version of Flim Flam appears in the direct-to-video movie Scooby-Doo! and the Curse of the 13th Ghost.

Weerd and Bogel[edit]

Bogel is a fat, dimwitted ghost while Weerd is a tall, skinny ghost. Weerd is the mastermind of the two. They both are recurring characters in the 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo and are first seen in the episode "To All the Ghouls I've Loved Before". Weerd comes up with a scheme to lure Shaggy and Scooby to open the Chest of Demons so he and Bogel can gain some glory with the 13 ghosts. In nearly every episode, Weerd and Bogel attempt to help out one of the chest escapees in fulfilling their master plan. Throughout the series, Weerd and Bogel try to get into S.A.P.S. (short for Spook and Poltergeist Society), a legion of high honor for the most terrifying ghosts and ghouls.

13 Ghosts[edit]

The 13 Ghosts are a group of malevolent ghosts and demons that were imprisoned in the Chest of Demons. Weerd and Bogel tricked Shaggy and Scooby into opening the Chest of Demons to free them. Now it's up to Scooby-Doo and his friends to recapture the 13 Ghosts as they were the ones who let them out. During this time, Weerd and Bogel worked alongside the different 13 Ghosts to further their goals and reclaim the Chest of Demons to no avail.

The 13 Ghosts consist of:

  • Maldor the Malevolent (voiced by Peter Cullen) - A ghostly warlock from the Dark Ages who is a master of the black arts.
  • Queen Morbida (voiced by Linda Gary) - A vampire-like queen who is the commander of an army of monsters.
  • Reflector Spectre (voiced by Michael Rye) - A mirror demon who can trap people in mirrors.
  • Zomba (voiced by Susan Blu) - A zombie demom who can transport people into movies and TV shows.
  • Captain Ferguson (voiced by Robert Ridgely) - A ghostly sea captain and his crew who haunted the Bermuda Triangle on his ghost ship.
  • Nekara (voiced by Linda Gary) - An enchantress who can drain other magic users of their magic with her Trance of Love.
  • Marcella (voiced by B.J. Ward) - A witch who manipulated three bumbling witches called the Brewski Sisters into freeing her.
  • Time Slime (voiced by Robert Ridgely) - A demon who can control the flow of time.
  • Demondo (voiced by Michael Rye) - A demon who can imprison people in books and comic strips.
  • Rankor (voiced by Hamilton Camp) - A vampire demon who sought to join S.A.P.S. by having Vincent Van Ghoul look into the Eye of Eternity which slowly turned him to stone.
  • Professor Phantazmo (voiced by Alan Oppenheimer) - The ringmaster of the Circus of Horrors which is staffed by demons and monsters.
  • Zimbulu (voiced by Peter Cullen in his true form, Edie McClurg in human form) - A horned lion demon with goat-like hooves who posed as a medium named Tallulah.

The film Scooby-Doo! and the Curse of the 13th Ghost features the 13th Ghost named Asmodeus who had eluded Scooby-Doo. Mystery Inc. reunites with Vincent van Ghoul and Flim Flam to catch Asmodeus. Asmodeus' history was the he was originally Vincent Van Ghoul's ancestor Asamad Van Ghoul. Vincent's friend Mortifer Quinch (voiced by Nolan North) impersonated Asmodeus in a plot to make a profit from the Chest of Demons only to be thwarted by Mystery Inc. The real Asmodeus appeared and resumed his true form of Asamad Van Ghoul as Velma figured out that Asamad was trying to keep Vincent safe. This was a ruse by Velma which she secretly told to Flim Flam.

Introduced in Scooby-Doo and the Witch's Ghost[edit]

The Hex Girls[edit]

Main article: The Hex Girls

The Hex Girls are an eco-goth rock band consisting of members Thorn (Sally McKnight), Dusk, and Luna. Thorn is voiced by Jennifer Hale, Dusk is voiced by Jane Wiedlin and Luna is voiced by Kimberly Brooks. They are first seen as suspects of the mystery that is going on in their hometown, Oakhaven, later becoming the gang's friends. They first appeared in Scooby-Doo! and the Witch's Ghost,[9] and reappeared in Scooby-Doo! and the Legend of the Vampire, What's New, Scooby-Doo? and Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated.[10]

In the movie Scooby-Doo! and the Witch's Ghost, they are first seen as suspects of the mystery the gang is investigating. Thorn later plays an important role on Sarah Ravencroft's ghost demise by reading the spell which sends her back to the spell book where she came from, along with her descendant Ben Ravencroft. Along with Scooby and the rest of the gang, they end up giving a concert to pay for the damage the Ravencrofts did.

In Scooby-Doo! and the Legend of the Vampire, Thorn, Luna and Dusk are the artists that are going to open the Vampire Rock Musical Festival, ending up being kidnapped by Yowie Yahoo's vampire minions, which leads the gang to look for them, while trying to solve the mystery regarding Vampire Rock. They end up being saved, and accompany the gang to their performance at the festival.

In the series What's New, Scooby-Doo?, they appear in the episode "The Vampire Strikes Back", where the gang must help them capture a vampire that has been trying to scare them away from a castle in Transylvania, where they are shooting their latest single. According to Daphne, Dusk intended to leave the group to start a solo career, but this wasn't brought up again with the episode's ending implying she chose to stay.

In Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated, they appear in the episodes "In Fear of the Phantom" and "Dance of the Undead". They ask the gang to help them catch a ghost who wants to put them out of business after Thorn is nearly crushed to death. After most of Crystal Cove is hypnotized by a zombie ska band, Scooby and Shaggy track them down and ask them for help to defeat them in a battle of the bands. They also help the gang find another clue of the Crystal Cove Mystery, by discovering and deciphering a hidden soundtrack in the Planispheric Disk.

Introduced in A Pup Named Scooby-Doo[edit]

Red Herring[edit]

Red Herring is a neighborhood bully from the gang's hometown in A Pup Named Scooby-Doo. Fred Jones is constantly having a feud with him and always blaming Red for the crime almost automatically because of an incident when they were babies and Red tried to frighten them (which he repeatedly does throughout the entire series) but he fails and is caught. In the episode, "Night of the Boogey Biker", Red is in fact behind the crime, but Fred was unable to accuse him because of a bet he made with Daphne earlier on in the episode, where he would not be allowed to accuse Red of a crime for 24 hours. This would be the only episode that would have Red as the criminal. Red is short, chubby, has curly red hair and normally wears a green vest over a white shirt, blue pants, and cowboy boots. Among his catchphrases are "HAH! What a weenie!", "That's not very funny" and "I didn't do it, Jones!" His name is a reference to the idiom "red herring".

Introduced in Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated[edit]

Sheriff Bronson Stone[edit]

Sheriff Bronson Stone is the sheriff of Crystal Cove in Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated. He doesn't like the gang because they get in his way of solving crimes, although he turns towards them when he's in a jam. He acts as an authority figure for the kids. He had a close relationship with Mayor Fred Jones Sr. until he found out that Jones was the Freak of Crystal Cove and stopped talking to him. He felt he deserved to become mayor after Jones was arrested and is cold to Mayor Janet Nettles in the second-season premiere. Sheriff Stone is normally seen in uniform and is very rarely seen in other outfits. He wears a brown hat and sheriff's uniform and has a mustache. His actual first name is Sheriff, as his mother thought that he was destined to be one. Besides himself, Sheriff Stone also looks up to Iron Will Williamson (who was later nicknamed "Dead Justice") and, before he was found out to be the Freak of Crystal Cove, Mayor Fred Jones, Sr.

When the new mayor, Janet Nettles, arrived in Crystal Cove, he felt that he should be the new mayor, and acted cold towards her, only to end up falling in love with her and beginning a steady relationship with her. In the restored world he and Janet are married with four children named Eastwood, Norris, Billy Jack, and Lynda Carter.

Hot Dog Water[edit]

Hot Dog Water, real name Marcie Fleach, is an inhabitant of Crystal Cove and a recurring character in Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated. She is first introduced in the episode "Where Walks Aphrodite" as a cameo and later has a voice cameo in the episode "The Dragon's Secret", and would make her full-fledged episode debut in "Menace of the Manticore", serving as the titular villain. She would later return in the episode "The House of the Nightmare Witch", out on parole and working with Velma and Mr. E. to find the third piece of the Planispheric Disc. She joins Mystery Incorporated as Daphne's temporary replacement in the same episode, only to leave in "Web of the Dreamweaver" following Daphne's return in the preceding episode, though Velma wanted her to stay. She subsequently made a cameo appearance in "The Hodag of Horror", and as the costumed villain in "The Night on Haunted Mountain". She makes another cameo in "Wrath of the Krampus".

Hot Dog Water has been Velma's rival for years, as the two girls have competed several times in the science fairs in Crystal Cove and Velma has always won. However, their rivalry seems to have faded and has become a friendship as a result of their partnership while working for Mr. E. They remain, friends, even after she leaves Mystery Incorporated, and Hot Dog Water claims Velma is the only real friend she's ever had. In "Wrath of the Krampus", Velma mentions that she still knows how to get in touch with her and she helps the gang by stealing the three pieces of the Planispheric disc from Mr. E's hiding place.

She has claimed to be smarter than Velma, as she concocted a "super helium" during an experiment in which she was testing the metal from the roller coasters at her father's theme park so she could be a manticore. She also has high computer skills, which she uses to make fake advertisement sites, as well as accurate financial pie charts, though she cannot figure out the traps surrounding the piece of the Planispheric Disc in the ship during the episode "The Night on Haunted Mountain", and causes the events to trick the gang, mainly Fred, into investigating the attack on Fred's friends, so Fred can trip the traps for her.

In "Through the Curtain", Hot Dog Water is taken hostage by Professor Pericles and he uses her as leverage to threaten the new Mystery Incorporated. However, Hot Dog Water breaks free and threatens to hurt Pericles, allowing her friends to escape. She is soon thwarted and shot by the Kriegstaffelbots, but her death is erased in "Come Undone" — in the alternate universe created by the gang after destroying the Evil Entity, Marcie and Velma are teammates and work together to win the science fairs mentioned in "Menace of the Manticore". The producer Tony Cervone claimed that he intended for them to become a couple, though it was not shown in the series.[11][citation needed]

She is normally seen with messy, long brown hair, red slim-framed glasses, a skirt, striped shirt with a jacket over top, and has a messy look about her. She smells of "hot dog water", hints to where she got her nickname, which her father reveals in "Menace of the Manticore" to be a result of her and her entire family bathing in recycled water previously used to boil hot dogs.

It was revealed by Warner Bros animator Tony Cervone on Instagram that writers of Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated intended for Velma and Marcie to be in a romantic relationship.[12]

Mayor Fred Jones, Sr.[edit]

Mayor Fred Jones, Sr., was the mayor of Crystal Cove for the first season and is Fred's father. He is proud of Crystal Cove being named the "Most Haunted Place on Earth", and uses it to attract tourism. This is why he doesn't approve of his son solving mysteries and proving the monsters to be faked. He doesn't understand Fred's obsession with solving mysteries and building traps and is usually discouraging him. He has a tendency to blurt out alliterative phrases when startled, usually by Fred. Later in the season, he is shown with a piece of the Planispheric Disc. This leads Fred to wonder and investigate who his father really is. In the first-season finale, it is revealed that Mayor Jones is the Freak of Crystal Cove and that he had adopted Fred so he could use him to keep his real parents (Brad Chiles and Judy Reeves of the original Mystery Incorporated) from returning to Crystal Cove. He is arrested and forced out of office. His successor is Janet Nettles, who is the polar opposite of Jones, calling upon the Gang for assistance in various mysteries.

He appears in the "Wrath of Krampus" as one of the gang's former enemies they enlist to help them in the plan to steal the remaining pieces of the Planispheric Disc from the original Mystery Incorporated. Despite his past betrayal, Fred says he was more than happy to help in the plan. He guards the gang's pieces of the disc during the events of the episode and returns them after they retrieved the other three pieces.

In "Nightmare in Red" the gang encounters his good half trapped in the waiting room, a supernatural prison for the good elements of those corrupted by the curse. While Nibiru had made Fred Sr. cold and unfeeling to Fred, his good half admits that Fred was the best thing in his life and he always thought him as his real son and was proud of him.

In the alternate timeline created by the gang after destroying the Evil Entity, he is the principal and soccer coach of Crystal Cove High School and admits to Fred that he had been special to him.

Mayor Janet Nettles[edit]

Mayor Janet Nettles is the successor to Mayor Fred Jones, Sr. after he is arrested for being The Freak of Crystal Cove. She first appears in the episode "The Night the Clown Cried", where she is approached by a mysterious figure, who later turns out to be Velma in disguise, to retrieve Scooby, Shaggy and Fred to help save Crystal Cove from Crybaby Clown.[13]

She is the second person, aside from Angel Dynamite (Cassidy Williams), to support the gang in their mystery-solving choice and even gives them an office, though it turns out to be the old janitor's closet, in the town hall.[14] She is later revealed to be in a relationship with Sheriff Bronson Stone,[15] although at the beginning Sheriff Bronson Stone is not thrilled that he was tossed over to be mayor for Nettles.[13] The two are constantly seen out on dates throughout the second season. In "Dark Night of the Hunters" she sent an old colleague to follow the gang where she reveals (to her embarrassment) that she had a nightmare to help the gang retrieve The Heart of the Jaguar and return them safely to Crystal Cove.[16]

At the end of the second season, in the alternate timeline created by the gang after destroying the Evil Entity, she is shown to be married to Sheriff Bronson Stone with four children, three sons and one daughter, of whom Daphne often babysits.[17]

Ed Machine[edit]

Ed Machine is the CEO of Destroido Corp. and the henchman of Mr. E. Ed first appears at the end of the episode, "The Legend of Alice May", where he released Alice May from her cell and asked if the plan was a success, while taking her to a car, Alice asks why it was such an elaborate plan. Ed tells her she was only paid for a job by his employer, Mr. E, and hasn't earned an explanation. After they had a quick chat, he watched her leave in the limousine. He is killed by Professor Pericles in "All Fear the Freak" in order to "send a message" to Mr. E.

The Original "Mystery Incorporated"[edit]

Mr. E (Ricky Owens)[edit]

Mr. E (a play on "mystery") is a mysterious figure that gives clues to the gang throughout the first season. He doesn't reveal his face, or true identity to the gang, but helps them solve their mysteries while giving them cryptic clues to solve the mystery of the truth behind the Curse of Crystal Cove. These clues lead them to find out about a cursed Conquistador treasure, the secret history of Crystal Cove's founding Darrow Family, and the unsolved disappearance of the original Mystery Incorporated. Towards the end of the first season, he is revealed to be Ricky Owens, who was part of the original Mystery Incorporated and the owner of evil megacorporation Destroido. He is Shaggy's old Mystery Incorporated counterpart, and used to be skinny like Shaggy, but ends up overweight and wearing a long dark coat. Mr. E owns a van called the "Enigma Machine", an all-black counterpart to the Mystery Machine.

It is unknown if Mr. E is a friend or foe to the new Mystery Incorporated as he has, on several occasions throughout the series, helped them to solve many of their mysteries by giving them cryptic clues. But during the events of both "The Legend of Alice May" and "Pawn of Shadows", he has caused the mysteries the gang has solved using Alice May both times, first to retrieve an old Crystal Cove High School yearbook for the gang to find out about the original Mystery Incorporated, and the second time to use them as "parrot bait" to get Professor Pericles to come to help the kids out of the danger from the Obliteratrix in order to obtain his piece of the Planispheric Disc that he had taken from Mayor Fred Jones, Sr.

In the episode "The Gathering Gloom" it is revealed how Ricky Owens and Professor Pericles met. Professor Pericles had crash-landed in Ricky Owens' front yard when he was a child and was injured. Ricky took Professor Pericles in and nursed him back to health and when Ricky went to set him free, Professor Pericles took off but immediately returned to stay with Ricky. Also during the episode, the two pair up once again to go after "the Treasure". At the end of the second season, in the alternate universe created by the gang after destroying the Evil Entity, Ricky Owens is shown to no longer be Mr. E and is a lot like his younger self. He is also happily married to Cassidy Williams and the two work together with Pericles at a new environmentally-friendly version of Destroido called Creationex.

Angel Dynamite (Cassidy Williams)[edit]

Cassidy Williams, alias Angel Dynamite, is a citizen of Crystal Cove and a recurring character in Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated, as well as one of the original members of Mystery Incorporated. She first appears in "Beware the Beast from Below" as a radio DJ for Crystal Cove's K-Ghoul radio station. Before she is revealed to be Cassidy Williams, she is a friend of Scooby and the gang and is the only inhabitant of Crystal Cove who supports them as mystery-solvers. She is Velma's old Mystery Incorporated counterpart.

After she is revealed, she is shown to be working with Mr. E, who has been hinted as, while she was still a member of Mystery Incorporated, once being her boyfriend, this is later confirmed in "The Midnight Zone". Upon his return to Crystal Cove, Mr. E also brought Cassidy along with him to help him seek out the Planispheric Disc and get revenge on Professor Pericles, as well as to help him keep an eye on the new Mystery Incorporated. Although she works with Mr. E, Cassidy is shown to have a great deal of concern and care for the gang. After she reveals her side of the reason why the original Mystery Incorporated left, the gang turn on her and no longer trust her as she had "been lying...since the beginning." When the Freak attacks Shaggy and Scooby at their home she and Ed Machine bring the gang to the radio station where she tries to comfort and give shelter to the gang only to have them lock her in her own booth. After attempting to contact Ed to let him know what has happened, she contacts Sheriff Bronson Stone and informs him of where the gang has gone and after rescuing her, she goes after them to make sure they are okay. During the first season of Mystery Incorporated, she is seen with a 70's type outfit, with a huge afro, green bell-bottoms, green tanktop-ish type shirt, and platform shoes, as well as green eyeliner.

In the second season of Mystery Incorporated, Cassidy is no longer working with Mr. E and during the events of "The Night the Clown Cried II - Tears of Doom!", Mr. E seeks her out and tells her "It would be the perfect time to get close to the kids again," but she refuses and states that she is no longer Angel Dynamite but just "Cassidy Williams," and tells him that she won't hurt the gang again. She also changes her look during the second season and cuts her afro to a much shorter curly hair and sports a trench coat and normal jeans and shoes. She begs to Brad and Judy, Fred's real parents, to stop hunting for the Conquistador treasure and to put Fred first but when they refuse she returns to K-Ghoul to start revealing the secrets of the Conquistador treasure and the curse of Crystal Cove. This has put her into real danger as Professor Pericles states to Mr. E at the end of "The Gathering Gloom" that "she will have to be silenced forever". She also begins spying on Brad and Judy. During the events of "Night Terrors", Cassidy is setting up the pictures of the Darrow family as a clue for Velma in her room to help her solve the mystery of the past mystery-solvers in Crystal Cove, including the original Mystery Incorporated, all of whom have vanished throughout the city's history. She is presumed to be dead after the events of the episode, "The Midnight Zone", and it is shown that the gang regrets not reconciling with her beforehand. It is never truly revealed if she did die or just went into deep hiding. In the episode "Nightmare in Red", Cassidy is in the room of those who had been affected by the Curse of Crystal Cove, but unlike many around her, with the exception of Fred Jones, Sr., she is not her younger self, like Ricky Owens, Professor Pericles, etc. but is seen as an older self in the second season after changing her look. At the end of the second season, in the alternate universe created by the gang after destroying the Evil Entity, Cassidy is shown to be alive and well and happily married to Ricky Owens.

The younger version of herself is seen constantly throughout the first season of the series. Her younger self sported a more innocent look, with bow-ties holding up her curly pigtails and sporting a yellow dress. She also wore glasses.

Professor Pericles[edit]

Professor Pericles was the mascot of the original Mystery Incorporated, Scooby's counterpart of Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated and the series main antagonist. A talking parrot of incredible intelligence with a German accent, he is also a sinister and highly manipulative sociopath, caring only for his own gain. Professor Pericles at first is only referenced in the series by a picture that has him circled in red marker. He makes his full-fledged appearance in the episode "Howl of the Fright Hound" where he is imprisoned in Crystal Cove's Animal Asylum. When the gang comes to visit Scooby, who is being framed for being the "Fright Hound", Daphne's locket opens of its own accords and begins playing the tune within it. Professor Pericles responds to this as he recognizes the tune. When the gang go to investigate him, he gives Fred a warning to "Beware those who are closest to you". He later, during the attack on the Animal Asylum by the "Fright Hound", escapes and Mr. E sends Velma a text message telling the gang to follow him. It is later revealed by Mayor Fred Jones, Sr. in the episode "All Fear the Freak", that he and Professor Pericles struck a deal to search for the Planispheric Disc together and helped him to chase the original Mystery Incorporated out of Crystal Cove but Jones, Sr. betrayed Professor Pericles and drugged him to render him unconscious and had Professor Pericles locked up. This also explains Mr. E's statement in the episode "Menace of the Manticore", about how Scooby is a more "trustworthy companion" to Shaggy than Pericles was to him.

Professor Pericles is also behind two of the mysteries in Crystal Cove, as he aided Amanda Smythe in the episode "Where Walks Aphrodite", where he uses the events to obtain objects he needed to help him retrieve what he needs for his quest for the Conquistador treasure. He is also the Shadowy Figure in the episode "A Haunting in Crystal Cove", where he hacks Fred's laptop to "scare" the location of Fred Jones, Sr.'s piece of the Planispheric Disc out of him, which he succeeds in doing and he takes off with it. At the end of the first season, Pericles has two pieces of the disc and Scooby vows to get him once he reunites the broken-up Mystery Incorporated.

In the second season of Mystery Incorporated, Professor Pericles does not return until "The Hodag of Horror", where he has an unknown proposition for the original members of Mystery Incorporated which involves the new Mystery Incorporated since they have now retrieved two pieces of the Planispheric Disc. During "The Gathering Gloom" Professor Pericles admits to trying to reunite the original Mystery Incorporated only to be rejected by them and turns to Mr. E in hopes that, due to their strong bond in the past, he will help him. Mr. E initially refused, citing Pericles's betrayal of him and the Original Mystery Incorporated. By the end of the episode, however, Mr. E does join forces with Pericles. The two manage to recruit Brad Chiles and Judy Reeves, Fred's real parents, to their cause. Pericles becomes more depraved as the series draws to its close as he works to free his "master", the Evil Entity, in hopes of becoming all-powerful in exchange for releasing the Entity. Pericles succeeds in freeing the Entity when Nibiru comes, and volunteers to serve as the Entity's physical host. However, Pericles learns to his horror too late that he has to die for the Entity to take over. Pericles' body is disfigured and remolded to serve as the Evil Entity's form until its defeat. In the alternate universe created by the gang after destroying the Evil Entity, he is shown to be the mascot for Ricky and Cassidy's environmentally-friendly company, Creationex. He is also shown without his scar and his personality has changed into a happy and kind bird.

  • Professor Pericles is voiced by Udo Kier.

Brad Chiles and Judy Reeves[edit]

Bradley "Brad" Chiles and his wife Judy Reeves are members of the original Mystery Incorporated and the birth parents of Fredrick Jones, Jr. When Mayor Fred Jones, Sr. abducts Fred to keep Brad and Judy from returning to Crystal Cove, the two continue to live their lives under secret identities for as the famous Sternum and Sternum, a couple who invent traps and help mystery solvers. Upon Mayor Jones' arrest, the two return to Crystal Cove apparently to reunite with Fred, but are really after the Conquistador treasure and have no care or concern for their son. They also have a dog named Nova, whom Scooby is instantly smitten with. They are Fred and Daphne's old Mystery Incorporated counterparts, respectively.

They first appear in the episode "The Hodag of Horror" but their younger selves are occasionally seen throughout the first season. Brad's younger self wears a sports jacket, has blonde hair identical to Fred's, and has freckles on his face but has the same face, chin, jawline, and body outline as Fred, his older self however does not have freckles and he has white hair. Judy's younger self is shown to have long blonde hair and wearing a long dress, whereas her present-day self sports short blond hair and a rich look about her.

The two eventually re-team up with Mr. E and Professor Pericles to help the two obtain the three pieces of the Planispheric Disc from the gang, as well as get their hands on the cursed Conquistador treasure beneath Crystal Cove.

In "Wrath of the Krampus", Fred makes it clear that he had known that they were only after the pieces of the disc and appeared hurt by their betrayal. Fred even makes it clear that he preferred Fred Jones, Sr. over them. Upon the revealing of their betrayal, the gang takes Nova with them with Scooby stating that Brad and Judy "do not deserve" her.

In the episode "The Man in the Mirror", Professor Pericles does plastic surgery on Brad and Judy to have Brad look identical to their son and Judy as an older version of Daphne. They remain like this for the remaining episodes until the alternate universe is created.

At the end of the second season, in the alternate universe created by the gang after destroying the Evil Entity, Brad and Judy have been returned to their original look, they had raised Fred as a child and was not adopted by Jones Sr., and have never been trap experts and are instead obstetricians.

Nova[edit]

Nova is a female Cocker Spaniel and the pet dog of Brad Chiles and Judy Reeves who appears in the second season of the series. She became the object of Scooby-Doo's affections. She was captured by the Hodag of Horror and saved by the gang. When the gang finds out about Brad and Judy's true intentions, they secretly take Nova behind their back because "they weren't good enough for her."

In the episode "The Horrible Herd", Nova is seriously injured after she falls from a helicopter during the final encounter with the Horrible Herd and she is put into a hospital. Scooby visits her frequently, but during one of his visits, she dies.

After her death interdimensional creatures called Anunnakis possessed her and spoke through her mind, telling the gang about the Evil Entity. She also tells them that the only way to save Crystal Cove is to find the Heart of the Jaguar, and destroy the sarcophagus containing the Evil Entity.

After the Evil Entity is destroyed, in the new timeline, while the gang is going to the Miskatonic University, Nova is still possessed by the Anunnaki and thanks Scooby for his heroic actions.

Alice May[edit]

Alice is a recurring character in season 1 of Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated who first appears in the episode "The Legend of Alice May". In the episode, she disguises herself as a ghost girl in an elaborate scheme to get a yearbook to the gang for her employer, Mr. E, while using the disguise of the ghost girl to distract the gang whilst she hid the yearbook for them to find. Alice later appeared again in the penultimate episode of Season 1, "Pawn of Shadows" where she took on the disguise of The Obliteratrix, an assassin sent to destroy Mystery Incorporated under direct orders from Mr. E, but she has later locked up again in prison after her defeat and capture.

Alice also has a non-speaking appearance in the second-season episode "Wrath of the Krampus," where she appears in the Crystal Cove prison.

The Evil Entity[edit]

The Evil Entity is the overarching villain of the series. He is an evil Anunnaki that was imprisoned for many centuries within a crystal sarcophagus, buried beneath Crystal Cove. Like other benevolent members of its race, he came to Earth thousands of years ago at the time of Nibiru, when a planetary alignment weakened the barriers between dimensions and allowed them to cross over. While other Anunnaki sought to help humankind grow, the Evil Entity desired the only destruction and he was imprisoned into a crystal sarcophagus by other Anunnaki. While imprisoned, the entity attempted to manipulate many mystery solvers throughout the centuries in hopes of setting him free.

After he is freed by Professor Pericles, the Entity intended to possess Scooby-Doo as his physical vessel, but he manages to break free. Pericles insists that he forgets about possessing Scooby and offered himself to the entity as a willing host instead, in which the Entity agrees. Taking Pericles' body and killing him in the process, the Entity assumes a physical form becoming a giant parrot-faced three-horned with a squid-like body and tentacles and then devours Brad, Judy, and Mr. E. Later, it set about consuming Crystal Cove's citizens before it went on to consuming planets and galaxies. It also calls other evil Anunnakis from its sarcophagus and orders them to catch Crystal Cove inhabitants for him. The Mystery Incorporated kids realize that, unlike other mystery-solving members of groups forged by the Entity, their friendship was real, as the Hunters of Secrets before them. Their love for each other helps Mystery Incorporated permanently destroy the Evil Entity from existence, creating an alternate timeline in which Crystal Cove is entitled the "Sunniest Place on Earth."

  • The Evil Entity is voiced by Clancy Brown, except in the episode "Wrath of the Krampus" where he is voiced by Frank Welker.

This article is about the original incarnation of Scooby-Doo. For other incarnations and uses, see Scooby-Doo (disambiguation).

Scooby-Doo

Fur color

Brown (with black spots)

Powers and abilities

Anthropomorphism;
Monster mimicry (transformation);
Prehensile tail

Scoobert[1] "Scooby" Doo[Note 1] is the Great Dane mascot of Mystery Inc., and pet and best friend of Shaggy Rogers.

Physical appearance

For a full list of what Scooby wears, see Scooby-Doo's outfits and disguises

Scooby is brown from head to toe with several distinctive black spots on his upper body. He is generally a quadruped, but displays bipedal 'human' characteristics occasionally. Scooby also has opposible thumbs and can use his front paws like hands. He has a black nose and wears an off-yellow, diamond shaped-tagged blue-green collar with an "SD" (his initials) and has four toes on each foot and unlike other dogs, Scooby only has one pad on the sole of each of his feet.

As a pup, he wore a scarf and ear muffs in cold climates.

Personality

Scooby-Doo and Shaggy share several personality traits, mostly being constantly hungry, being scared easily and most of the time refuse to help others, but their friends (Velma Dinkley, Daphne Blake and Fred Jones) encourage them to go after the costumed villains usually with "Scooby Snacks", a biscuit-like dog treat or cookie snack (usually shaped like a bone or as shown in later versions of the cartoons Scooby's dog tag), though occasionally appealing to Scooby-Doo inherent loyalty and courage to take a more heroic stance.

His catch phrase, usually howled at the end of every mystery, is "Scooby-Dooby-Doo!" or "Rooby-Rooby-Roo", sometimes followed by a quirky chuckle.

He enjoys a lot of attention and would sometimes appear brave and heroic.

When he solves cases with his nephew Scrappy-Doo, he's very protective of him, as he often runs after him to prevent him from going straight to the monster or ghost.

Power and abilities

He has peculiar and extraordinary abilities, such as being able to talk in English, although not without pronouncing most words as if they begin with an "R", though most people are able to understand him perfectly (if they acknowledge that he can speak at all). He can also talk to other animals (mostly dogs), which comes in handy whenever the gang needs help or more information.

He can stand on his hind legs, which he gradually does more often as the years have gone by. Dealing with Scrappy, would get him on his hind legs a lot, when he wanted to keep himself and Scrappy away from a monster.

He can also morph his body to mimic any and all monsters he has encountered, along with some humans, too. His tail is prehensile, being used to get him out of certain situations, if need be.

He also has a great sense of balance, as he can ride on a unicycle while juggling and balancing a fishbowl on his head.

He's shown to be a master dancer, as he got a perfect score on the WWE's victory dance, and avoided Kane's attacks.

When he was a puppy, Scooby Snacks would make him blast off like a rocket, before gliding gently back down to earth.

Like many dogs he has an incredible sense of smell, earning his nose the nickname "Super Sniffer".

He has a fully prehensile tail he can use to swing from or press buttons. Both his head and tail are malleable and useful as a communication aid or creating a distraction. But his tail often gives him away while in disguise.

He had amazing video game skill when he was a pup and referred to by Shaggy as the Video Champ of Coolsville.

Family and relatives

For a complete list of Scooby's family members, look here. For other relatives, look here.

Romantic interests

Scooby has both noticed and gained the attention of the opposite sex over the years (sometimes, occasionally, even human).

A Scary Night With a Snow Beast Fright)
  • Amber: Shaggy and Scooby are abducted by the "aliens", and abandoned in the desert. There they meet a wild life photographer, Crystal and her dog Amber. Scooby was heartbroken when it is revealed that Amber and Crystal are actually aliens from another planet and must go home, though he and Shaggy quickly forget about them when they found out there was one more Scooby Snack box left. Amber and Crystal did seem to have actual feelings for Shaggy and Scooby but don't pursue them due to 'long distance relationships never working out'. Amber's disguised form is that of a Golden Retriever wearing a red bandana while her true form is a large, blue reptilian creature with a beak-like mouth. Like Scooby, she is capable of speech but only shows so as she's about to leave, and unlike Scooby, she speaks like a normal human. (Scooby-Doo and the Alien Invaders)
  • Chiquita: Scooby meets up with Chiquita, Alejo Otero's son's pet Chihuahua, when the gang arrives at Alejo's family hotel. (Scooby-Doo! and the Monster of Mexico)
  • Roxanne: An old girlfriend that Scooby meets again when the gang return to their home town to take a break from mystery solving. In the time apart, she met singer J.C. Chasez's pet bulldog, Rico. (WNSD: A Scooby-Doo Valentine.)
  • Shauna; Scooby fell in love with her when the visited the Grand Sandy Resort. He began spending more time with her, making Shaggy sad and jealous. However, when her owner Kiki Brownstone'shusband was the Sea monster, she had to leave him to help Kiki raise bail out money. (Scooby-Doo! and the Beach Beastie)

Occupation

Scooby has joined Shaggy in taking odd jobs, for extra cash, and other times when he's forced to take an actual profession to support himself when Mystery Inc. decide to take a hiatus, and can't slack off as usual. 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)
  • Actor: Scooby got the role of Sandy Duncan's dog, 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, Shaggy, and Fred took questionable jobs at a construction site. (TSDS: High Rise Hair Raiser)
  • 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, Shaggy, and Scrappy were hired as gym teachers at Grimwood's Finishing School for Girls, or so they believed. (Scooby-Doo and the Ghoul School)
  • Co-racecar driver. (Scooby-Doo and the Reluctant Werewolf)
  • Aiport customs: He and 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.)
  • Detective: He, Shaggy, and Scrappy worked for Shaggy's uncle Fearless Shagaford at the Fearless Detective Agency. (The Scooby & Scrappy Doo Puppy Hour)

Additionally, Scooby assisted Shaggy when he was a paper boy, by unloading the delivered papers into his bike's basket. When the gang discovered Shaggy's boss stole his bike chain to work his counterfeiting machine, Shaggy quit, and so did Scooby. (APNSD: A Bicycle Built for Boo!)

Notes/trivia

  • Scooby-Doo was once impersonated by former N'Sync star, J.C. Chasez, in the What's New, Scooby-Doo? episode, A Scooby-Doo Valentine.
  • He usually says, at least once per episode, "Ruh-roh, Raggy" ("Uh-oh, Shaggy").
  • Scooby's voice is similar to that of the earlier character, Astro, from The Jetsons, also voiced by Don Messick.

Appearances in other media

Scoob and Shag in BIA.png
  • Scooby has appeared in Johnny Bravo in the episode 'Twas The Night, voiced by Hadley Kay.
  • Scooby-Doo appeared twice in The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy, in the episodes Reap Walking and Keeper of the Reaper, the former was a non-speaking cameo while the latter was voiced by Frank Welker.
  • Scooby-Doo and Shaggy made a cameo appearance in Looney Tunes: Back In Action complaining to Matthew Lillard (who played Shaggy) about his performance in Scooby-Doo: The Movie.
  • In an episode of Yin Yang Yo! called Slumber Party of Doom, characters resembling Scooby and Shaggy make a cameo. Watching as if Ying Yang Yo! is a show itself, the Shaggy lookalike complains about Yin and Yang stealing their montages, while they run from zombies, with the Scooby lookalike says, "It sucks!"
  • Scooby-Doo was once impersonated by David Beckham in an animated Scooby-Doo promo from the United Kingdom.
  • Scooby-Doo appears in the Robot Chicken episode Operation: Rich in Spirit, voiced by Dave Coulier (who previously imitated Scooby's voice in Full House). He is amongst Mystery Inc. members who end up killed by Jason Voorhees except Velma. Seth Green voices him in the episode "Ban on the Fun" when in the segment that parodies the Laff-a-Lympics in the style of the Munich massacre. This time, Scooby did not get killed.
  • In an episode of Batman: The Brave and the Bold. This episode alludes to The New Scooby-Doo Movies where Batman originally starred in. However with some meddling from Bat-Mite not only were the dynamic duo able to fight unlike in the original appearance, but he also removed Shaggy and Scooby's cowardice allowing them to, for the first time, fight the villains toe to toe.
  • Scooby and the gang teams up with theWinchesters and Castiel in the Supernatural episode Scoobynatural.
  • Scooby and the gang are forced to take part in Family Feud in the Teen Titans Go! episode Cartoon Feud.

Behind-the-scenes

The name "Scooby-Doo" supposedly comes from the last line of the Frank Sinatra song "Strangers In The Night", which CBS' children's programming executive, Fred Silverman, took. However, writer Mark Evanier believes that the name may have come from Randy and the Rainbow's "Denise", where as the "Dooby" part came from the former.[2]Hanna-Barbera also had an entirely different dog named "Scooby" in their archives from the early 1960's.[3]

When designing Scooby, Iwao Takamoto learned all the traits of a Great Dane from a colleague who breed them. He then did the complete opposite.

Voices of Scooby-Doo

Don Messick originated the character's voice patterns, and provided Scooby-Doo's voice in every Scooby-Doo production from 1969 until 1996, when Messick got a stroke and retired. Scott Innes (also the then-voice of Shaggy) voiced Scooby-Doo in four late 1990s/early 2000s direct-to-video films, and Frank Welker (also the voice of Fred) took over beginning with What's New, Scooby-Doo? in 2002.

In other languages

In Brazil, the actor Orlando Drummond has been the voice of Scooby Doo for over 35 years.

Daphne wears Jean Shrimpton-esque locks, Velma has a bowl bob, Fred has a prim moptop, and Shaggy has... well... shaggy hair and a stubble.
  • Adaptational Badass: Most of the modern continuities will make one or more of the gang members stronger and more formidable than they were in the original show. The most notable case would be video games such as Scooby-Doo: Mystery Mayhem and Scooby-Doo: First Frights that require Mystery, Inc. to actually fight the monsters instead of just arranging traps to capture the disguised criminals so they can unmask them.
  • Adaptational Jerkass: They get hit with this hard in the first live-action movie, where they go from normal, likable people to borderline Unsympathetic Comedy Protagonist for laughs. Fred, Daphne and Velma spend much of the film arguing, Scooby punches Fred in the face, Shaggy suggests after Fred and Velma are captured by monsters that he, Scooby and Daphne let them get eaten (the cartoon version of Shaggy is a coward, but he's not the kind of person that would abandon his friends), and a flashback shows them abandoning Scrappy — Scooby's nephew — in the middle of the desert. And Scrappy himself goes from being annoying but competent, to an egotistical psycho whose bite is nothing compared to his bark.
  • Aerith and Bob:
    • We have three relatively rare names: Daphne, Velma and Norville (Shaggy, that is), plus one more "normal" — Fred/Freddie (short for Frederick).
    • Played straight with their last names — Blake, Dinkley, Rogers, and Jones, respectively. The odd one is Dinkley.
  • Amateur Sleuth: They solve mysteries purely for the fun of it. And they're good.
  • Arbitrary Skepticism: Depending on the Writer.
    • In Mystery Incorporated, they're clearly used to dealing with more Darker and Edgier monsters that regularly harm people with dangerous gadgets (in the first episode alone, a monster uses what is implied to be biological waste to suck the moisture out of three people, who then look like dried out corpses and have to be hospitalized), to the point that they take the rising stakes and The Reveal that there are demon alien gods rather well. Though this is played straight near the end of the show, when Velma expresses skepticism that traveling through dreams and being hunted by a boogeyman is possible until it happens.
    • In the Supernatural crossover episode, they don't take it well when the Winchester brothers reveal that they're dealing with a real ghost in that episode. Returns back to status quo when the Winchesters decide to ask the ghost to pretend to be some guy in a costume.
  • Badass Normal: As the decades went by the gang grew from just local amateur sleuths to matching wits with superpowerful menaces ranging from Were-Cats, malicious A.I.s, evil sorcerers, and full on Eldritch horrors. And they mostly go about how they do any other mystery!
  • Balloon Belly: Shaggy and Scooby occasionally. Notable examples include their feast in The Witch's Ghost, in which they leave a diner almost unable to walk, their stomachs having gotten so huge; Mystery Incorporated puts a twist on this by depicting Scooby and Shaggy attempting to eat most of the food in Crystal Cove, and become grotesquely obese, initially unable to walk.
  • Big Eater: Shaggy, Scooby and occasionally Scrappy. If Fred wants to find the monster, Shaggy will volunteer to investigate the kitchen, and prepare a large snack for himself and Scooby — until the monster comes to interrupt the meal. Occasionally, early episodes would have some wild or barnyard critter that's much smaller than either of them swipe their food and swallow it whole.
  • Captain Obvious: They will often point out things that are happening or just happened that should already be obvious to the viewer.
  • Character Exaggeration: Each passing continuity will exaggerate at least one character. For example, Fred into someone who's obsessed with traps (especially in Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated), Velma into a Hollywood Nerd, and Shaggy and Scooby had their cowardice turned Up to Eleven. Daphne is usually exempt from this, as she doesn't have a definitive personality, alternating between Damsel in Distress, Action Girl, Cloudcuckoolander and more, making her a case of Depending on the Writer.
  • Color-Coded Characters:
    • Scooby: Brown
    • Shaggy: Green
    • Daphne: Purple
    • Fred: White and blue
    • Velma: Orange and red
  • Cool Kid-and-Loser Friendship: A jock and a popular girl befriend a hippie slacker and a nerdy bookworm over their mutual interest in mysteries. This was demonstrated in Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Begins.
  • Distressed Dude: Shaggy and Scooby have ended up Bound and Gagged on a few occasions.
  • Expy: Fred, Velma, Daphne and Shaggy were inspired by the main characters in The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis — Dobie Gillis became Fred, Thalia Menninger became Daphne, Zelda Gilroy became Velma and Maynard G. Krebs became Shaggy.
  • Five-Man Band:
    • The Leader: Fred. He makes the plans, designs the traps, and decides when to split up.
    • The Lancer: Shaggy. When the gang does split up, Shaggy leads one half. Shaggy (along with Scooby) often notices creepy things that Fred had missed and is likely to sneak away with Scooby to eat a large snack.
    • The Smart Guy: Velma. The girl who examines the clues. When Fred unmasks the monster, expect Velma to explain today's "Scooby-Doo" Hoax.
    • The Chick: Daphne. She's often portrayed as the most feminine and considerate member of the group, and is the most likely to become the monster's Damsel in Distress.
    • The Big Guy: Scooby. Dumb as a dog, but loyal — though he may require a Scooby snack — and necessary to sniff out clues.
    • Sixth Ranger: Scrappy.
  • Free-Range Children: They were originally designed to be high school age, and in the first series most of their adventures are implied to locally. With a few exceptions of a trip to China Town or Hawaii. As the series went on they became more of this even if they didn't appear to have grown much older.
  • The Friends Who Never Hang: The usual way the group divides is Fred and Daphne, Shaggy and Scooby, and Velma with either group (or, in rare cases, going alone). This is lampshaded in one episode of What's New, Scooby-Doo?, where the group decides to split in a different way for once, with Fred splitting off with Shaggy, only to find they have absolutely no chemistry as a pair.

    Fred: So... did you see the game last night?

    Shaggy: Uh, I'm not really into sports.

    Fred: Oh, right...

    Shaggy: Wanna go get something to eat?

    Fred: No thanks, I'm not hungry.

    Shaggy: Oh...

    *short pause*

    Fred: From now on, let's split up like usual.

    Shaggy: Good plan.

    • Also brought up in the 2002 live-action film, in which Velma complains about the usual pairings, leaving her the odd man out. Fred volunteers to be her partner on their current quest, but struggles to carry normal conversation with her. Velma does appreciate the effort after a bit, however.
    • Other than The New Scooby-Doo Mysteries and The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo, Shaggy and Daphne never have much one-on-one time, due to the aforementioned Fred and Daphne dynamic, though some of the movies do have them interact more often.
    • Outside of Scooby and Shaggy, Scrappy is close to Daphne, as they were paired up in The New Scooby-Doo Mysteries. His interactions with Velma were limited, but he was friendly with her and barely interacted with Fred at all.
  • Genre Blindness: Particularly in the original series. No, the gang will never figure out or even guess that the monster is just a guy in a costume right away, no matter that the last few dozen monsters were all guys in costumes. They have to wait until the end of the episode.
    • Though in Curse of the 13th Ghost, Shaggy stated that their encounter with the 13 Ghosts is the reason why he and Scooby believe the fake monsters the gang encountered might be the real deal.
  • Hero with Bad Publicity: Some adaptations, such as Mystery Incorporated, will have them at odds with the law.
  • Kid Hero: They're teenagers in the original series Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!. Most later incarnations either make them adults or leave their ages open to interpretation.
  • Let's Get Dangerous!: Shaggy and Scooby when anyone they really care about is in trouble. There was even one moment when Velma was captured and Scooby turned down a Scooby Snack, saying he didn't need it to be persuaded to help rescue her.
  • Like Brother and Sister:
    • Shaggy and Velma were originally supposed to be siblings. It showed in the debut episode, "What a Night for a Knight", as Velma has Shaggy's cough medicine at hand, and in "Decoy for a Dognapper", Shaggy keeps a spare pair of glasses for Velma.
    • Daphne and Scrappy had this vibe when they were paired up in the eighties cartoons. He assisted her in solving crimes and she kept him out of trouble. Velma had a similar vibe with him to an extent.
  • Lives in a Van: They all have families with houses they can stay in, but they effectively live in the Mystery Machine. In Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated, the gang all still live with their parents, but Fred, after finding out that his father isn't really his father, and that his real parents are no better, ends up living in the Mystery Machine parked by a lake.
  • The Millstone: Subversion: Shaggy and Scooby always botch the plan to catch the Monster of the Week... and in the process of botching it, succeed at catching the monster.
  • Mystery Magnet: Even if they weren't investigating a mystery, they would often be forced to.
  • Nephewism: An awful lot of mysteries kick off with the gang visiting the uncle (seldom aunt) of one member or another, particularly early in the franchise.
  • Nice Guy: They are a likable bunch of characters.
  • Outdated Outfit: All of them sport these, especially Fred and Daphne, who wear ascots. Ascots went out of style not even a few years after the original series premiered. The shows and movies from the late 90s and 2000snote except for Scooby-Doo! and the Legend of the Vampire and Scooby-Doo! and the Monster of Mexico removed the ascots, but they were brought back from The New '10s onward, likely due to the Grandfather Clause. Velma and Shaggy's outfits have remained relatively unchanged since the beginning, since their attires (a turtleneck sweater and skirt for the former and a V-neck T-shirt and pants for the latter) don't look quite as out-of-place in the present day as the other two. Though Shaggy's pants are often redesigned to look less like bellbottoms and Velma's sweater is smaller and more figure hugging than it used to be.
  • Parental Abandonment: They either have no parents or just very hands-off parents who don't seem to care that their teenagers go all around the world, hunting down villains in Halloween costumes.
  • Phrase Catcher: In A Pup Named Scooby-Doo, the rest of the gang immediately notice whenever Velma says "Jinkies!", knowing "It must be a clue!". Also, they often finish the villain's "I would have gotten away with it if it weren't for You Meddling Kids", surprised that they know the villain would say that.
  • Properly Paranoid: Yeah, Scooby and Shaggy are scaredy-cats, but when you think about it, their fears are understandable. The various criminals they catch showed no qualms to killing in order to get what they want.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: Scooby and Shaggy occasionally try to do this if they feel things are getting too scary. The others usually won't let them.
  • True Companions: They travel together solving mysteries with little mention of contact with other friends or family. This becomes a main theme in Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated.
  • Two Girls to a Team: Two girls (Daphne and Velma) and three guys, specifically.
  • Vague Age: Throughout the franchise, it has been inconsistent how old the gang are supposed to be.
    • Originally, in Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!, they were teens, with Velma being 15, Daphne being 16, and Fred & Shaggy being 17 (as well as high school seniors). Some of the earlier subsequent series hint towards the gang being legal adults, such as The New Scooby-Doo and Scrappy-Doo Show episode "The Crazy Carnival Teacher" having Shaggy quip to a former teacher of his and Daphne's that he can't expel them because they already graduated and the premiere episode of The New Scooby-Doo Mysteries "Happy Birthday, Scooby-Doo" revealing that Fred has become a mystery writer and that Velma now works for NASA.
    • The late 1990's and early 2000's direct-to-video movies (such as Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island, Scooby-Doo! and the Witch's Ghost, Scooby-Doo and the Alien Invaders, and Scooby-Doo and the Cyber Chase), which take place after the original show, place them in their twenties. In the second film, they state how much they hate being called "kids" since they're apparently young adults.
    • What's New, Scooby-Doo? never specifies if the gang are high school students or in their twenties. Pirates Ahoy! takes place on Fred's birthday, and the rest of the gang has no idea how old he is turning, though he probably isn't 46. The Valentine's Day episode suggests that they're college-aged.
    • Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated has them as teens, with Daphne and Fred explicitly being stated to be seniors. It is also implied that Velma and Shaggy are as well. One episode has the parents send them to the local college to see what it's like, and the end of the show has them being accepted into Miskatonic University (with the show being implied to be a Stealth Prequel to Where Are You! or at least a Broad Strokes of it) in the middle of the school year, though it's worth noting that there's been cases of accepting Child Prodigies into colleges in the same show as well.
    • The direct-to-video movies released in the 2010's seem to flip-flop on whether the gang are teenagers or adults, as Scooby-Doo! Legend of the Phantosaur mentions that Fred has trouble graduating high school, Scooby-Doo! Camp Scare has the gang work as volunteer camp counsellors (a position which typically requires the applicant to have at least graduated high school), they are referred to as "young adults" early in Scooby-Doo! Mask of the Blue Falcon, and Scooby-Doo! and the Curse of the 13th Ghost has a sheriff mention that they are "almost 18".
    • Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Begins, Scooby-Doo! Curse of the Lake Monster and Daphne & Velma are live-action prequel movies that place the kids in their teens as high school students once again.
    • Be Cool, Scooby-Doo! takes place the summer after they graduate from high school, making them at least 18 years old in that continuity.
    • The Scarecrow (yes, that one) refers to them as "young adults" in Happy Halloween, Scooby-Doo!, suggesting that they're 18 at the youngest.
  • You Meddling Kids: Trope Namer. Sometimes Scoob will get called a "dumb or mangy" mutt as well.
  • Younger Than They Look: In the original Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! series, Velma was 15, Daphne was 16 and Fred and Shaggy were both 17 (hence the term "Meddling Kids"), yet they looked and sounded like they were at least in their mid-twenties. Perhaps in response to this, they are sometimes given an Age Lift in later continuities (such as the DTV movies between Zombie Island and Cyber Chase where they're in their twenties and What's New, Scooby-Doo? where they seem to be college-aged).

    Scoobert "Scooby" Doo

Scooby-Dooby-Doo!

Voiced by:
Don Messick (1969-1994)
Hadley Kay (1997)
Scott Innes (1998-2001, 2001-2006 video games)
Neil Fanning (Scooby-Doo and Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed)
Frank Welker (2002-present)
Jess Harnell (human form seen in Shaggy's nightmare in Big Top Scooby-Doo!)


  • Accidental Athlete: In "Ghastly Goals", he becomes part of the Brazilian soccer team as he tries to retrieve a soccer ball endowed with a formula that makes it bounce stronger from a beast called an Eshu.
  • Action Pet: Scooby can be very heroic when he needs to be.
  • Adaptational Badass: In some incarnations, mostly the movies and Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated, he is portrayed as braver and more willing to face his enemies head-on.
  • Adaptational Dumbass: In the live-action movies, he is really dumber.
  • Adaptational Jerkass:
    • In Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated he is more of a jerk, constantly fights with Velma, and talks more often, which adds to the attempt in developing the characters. He gets better, of course.
    • In the live-action movies. The first one has him punching Fred in the face and casually abandoning his nephew in the middle of the desert. Though to be fair, Scrappy was more annoying than usual.
  • Adaptation Relationship Overhaul: In Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated, he's initially not too fond of Velma and feuds with her for Shaggy's attention. While he gets better, it's rather jarring compared to previous productions like A Pup Named Scooby-Doo and Scooby-Doo! in Where's My Mummy?, where Velma is shown to be Scooby's second best friend.
  • Amplified Animal Aptitude: Dogs that are not in the Doo family are shown to act just like real dogs.
  • Anthropomorphic Shift:
    • He was suffering this by the mid-80s. He was seen walking on two legs all the time (it didn't help that his four legged design was not changed) and he was becoming somewhat less of a Speech-Impaired Animal. It seems to have been reversed beginning with A Pup Named Scooby-Doo where he became more of a quadruped again.
    • When Scooby runs in the early series, his legs don't follow a normal dog's running pattern. Each pair of legs go alternately in a circular motion. The only episode showing him running like a normal dog was "Decoy for a Dognapper", as he and the freed kidnapped dogs run after their captor.
  • Bavarian Fire Drill: His and Shaggy's specialty: Once an Episode in nearly every series or movie, they'll trick the monster with some kind of elaborate ruse and disguise made on the fly — which always works, even when it probably shouldn't. These cons have become such a staple of the formula that recent works tend to lampshade their effectiveness.
  • Big Eater: With Shaggy. When Shaggy is about to bite his Dagwood Sandwich, expect Scooby to swallow it.
  • Big Friendly Dog: Scooby is not aggressive. He does not attack monsters. He runs away from them. It's easy to forget since he's so goofy, but Scoob's almost as big and heavy as a grown man.
  • The Big Guy: Dumb as a dog, but loyal — though he may require a Scooby snack — and necessary to sniff out clues.
  • Blue Is Heroic: Wears a blue collar.
  • Brought to You by the Letter "S": His dog tag has the initials "SD" imprinted on it, for the initials of his name.
  • Butt-Monkey: Often drifts into suffering misfortunes for the sake of comic relief.
  • Cartoony Tail: Scooby's tail may closely resemble a real Great Dane's, but was designed to look and act like that of a cat's.
  • Catchphrase:
    • "Scooby Dooby Doo!", "Rover rere" and "Ruh-roh!"
    • In earlier iterations, Scooby would more often than not say "Yikes!", usually in tandem with Shaggy's "Zoinks!". This hasn't really appeared in much media after Don Messick's passing.
  • Character Exaggeration: He was originally just scared easily but ever since What's New, Scooby-Doo?, he has been looked upon as a full blown coward to the point just uttering the words "haunted" and "place" in the same sentence will make him run and hide for cover. The same with Shaggy as well.
  • Characterization Marches On: His behavior in the first series — talking, reading, etc notwithstanding — is more like that of a typical dog (sniffing, barking, etc.) than in later series and films.
  • Classical Anti-Hero: In a way. With his massive cowardice, Scooby's just as likely to avoid taking part in a mystery, as he is to take the role of the hero.
  • Cool Uncle: Scrappy thinks of Scooby this way, despite Scooby's cowardice.
  • Cowardly Lion: Scooby's cowardice was likely Flanderized through time, but whenever you threaten someone he cares for, he can definitely take you down.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: In some iterations, and more often than Shaggy. In more recent times, Scooby is generally portrayed as cowardly in most cases but a fiercely loyal and heroic friend when the chips are down.
    • Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated had his most Badass form when he "killed" a robot double who tried to kill his friends with a forklift! His line to the robot? "PLAY DEAD!"
    • Batman: The Brave and the Bold had the Scooby Gang run into Batman and Robin. It just happens that Batmite also helps Scooby and Shaggy get into the fight as well.
    • In "Never Ape an Ape Man", not only he did he aid the actress trying to escape the Ape Man by holding the bridge, he barked at it and even fought it with punches and kicks while bouncing on a branch until he defeated the monster. And this was in the show's first iteration! In later episodes, he rescues Shaggy and Velma from the monster singlehandedly. Scooby may not like spooky things, but he is still a very protective man's best friend.
  • Detective Animal: Whenever the gang is investigating another mystery.
  • Dogs Are Dumb: Zig-zagged, for while he's certainly smarter than the average dog, Scooby is usually the least intelligent member of the team. There are times he gets lucky in what he does just happens to be heroic enough to save the day (once when Jeannie was trapped in a bottle and surrounded by a force field that only sound could penetrate, Scooby howled at a pitch high enough to shatter the bottle's glass). In the movies, he's very obviously become an Adaptational Dumbass.
  • The Drag-Along: Like Shaggy, Scooby has to be coerced with promises of Scooby Snacks.
  • Dub Name Change: In Japan, his name is Yowamushi Kuruppa, or for short, Kuruppa. It means "scaredy-cat" or "cowardly Kuruppa".
  • Embarrassing First Name: The name Scoobert wouldn't be officially established until A Pup Named Scooby-Doo. As Shaggy owns him, apparently he gave Scooby that name.
  • Furry Denial: A recurring gag has him exclaim "Rog? Rhere?" whenever someone points out he's a dog.
  • Gentle Giant: Scooby is a very large dog, almost as big and heavy as a full grown man. But he's generally easy going and fun loving. However, hecan take down monsters when motivated.
  • Gasshole: In the live action films at least...downplayed in the third film and almost completely absent in the fourth.
  • Heroic Dog: And the Monster of the Week would have gotten away with it, if You Meddling Kids didn't have a dog.
  • Heroism Incentive: He wouldn't be the trope namer for Would You Do It For A Scooby Snack? if offering Scooby Snacks wasn't the easiest way to make him agree to do feats requiring bravery. Though, apparently, comparing him to John Wayne elicits a similar response.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Shaggy, in a rare man and dog example.
  • Idiot Ball: Scooby carries this throughout some movies and incarnations.
  • Invincible Incompetent: With Shaggy. They always seem to end up finding the weekly monster despite their cowardice, laziness, and their usual lack of investigative skills.
  • Kid-Appeal Character: According to Word of God, in order to air the series on the CBS Saturday morning timeslot, the series had to lighten its Darker and Edgier atmosphere. Scooby's character, who was envisioned as more of a side character than anything else, was promptly made the lead, and the show became all about his comedic antics. His nephew would later follow suit.
  • Large Ham: Often in the original series when he needs to be the bait and tries to get out of it.
  • Leitmotif: The Theme Tune to The New Scooby-Doo Movies. Throughout the 1970s and 80s, jingles based on the theme came to represent Scooby, both in official Scooby-related media and other supplementary works produced by Hanna-Barbera. It was silently dropped by the time of A Pup Namednote Though it gets a final reprise in Scooby-Doo! Night of 100 Frights, after which point the franchise opts to use the standard Where Are You theme (usually as a Theme Music Power-Up).
  • Let's Get Dangerous!: When anyone he really cares about is in trouble. There was even one moment when Velma was captured and Scooby turned down a Scooby Snack, saying he didn't need it to be persuaded to help rescue her.
  • Lovable Coward: He and Shaggy are both frequently scared out of their minds to the point that it's easy to relate to them. It helps that they rarely put their self-preservation over defending their loved ones from danger.
  • Never Gets Fat: Both Scooby and Shaggy eat huge amounts of food in one sitting, but they remain pretty trim. Justified when one recalls they are very often running away from danger and the speeds that he and Shaggy can go through can rival Olympian athletes. Little wonder they go through so much food if they're burning it through regular amounts of panic-induced exercise. According to the "Those Meddling Kids" interviews, here was one point where Shaggy overdid it with the Scooby Snacks and ate about forty percent in his body weight. This led to Shaggy starting his vegan diet.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: His real name is Scoobert.
  • Papa Wolf:
    • He cares for his nephew Scrappy and is very protective of him, keeping him from running straight for any ghoul they encounter on their travels and is willing to stand up to danger to keep him safe.
    • In the first series, whenever Shaggy or Velma were in dire straits ("Nowhere To Hyde" and "That's Snow Ghost", notably and respectively), this chicken-hearted Great Dane would knock it out of the park to rescue them.
    • In an episode of What's New Scooby Doo? he faced a huge menacing cat creature that was attacking a litter of puppies. Having spent the whole night already rescuing the pups from a pair of kidnappers, Scooby was in no mood to put up with the monster's threats, and flat out tackled it. Don't threaten innocent puppies in front of Scooby Doo.
  • Parental Substitute: Scrappy looks up to and loves his uncle as a father, believing him to be the best and has unquestionable faith in him.
  • Pastimes Prove Personality: Scooby is particularly fond of fishing, whether with rod and reel or just with a line tied to his tail. This demonstrates his laziness (fishing is mostly waiting around), his love of seafood (or any food at all), and his propensity for trickery and/or being used as bait in Fred's plans.
  • Phrase Catcher: "Scooby, would you do it for a Scooby Snack?" And also, the eponymous, "Scooby-Doo, where are you?!"
  • Roger Rabbit Effect: Even though the humans are also cartoons, Scooby-Doo far exceeds them in his ability to do Toon Physics. Shaggy shares this ability to a lesser degree. Scooby is CGI in the live action movies.
  • Serial Romeo: Although it only happens once or twice a series, Scooby tends to fall head over heels for any lady dog who crosses his path. At various points, he's been infatuated with such varied females as a poodle that turned out to be a puppet, a retriever that turned out to be an alien in disguise, a lead sled dog that got him so hotted up that he melted his way free of an ice block, and a spaniel that was possessed by another alien.
  • Signature Laugh: His "heHeHEHeHehe" chortle, often followed by, "Rooby Roo!"
  • Speech-Impaired Animal: All of Scooby's words invariably start with an 'R', except for when he says his name, and sometimes even then. This trait was somewhat dropped around the time of The New Scooby-Doo Movies, but was revived when Scott Innes and Neil Fanning took over. Frank Welker had also initially used this when he began voicing Scooby until it was dropped by Mystery Incorporated. Humorously inverted during one episode where he and Shaggy encounter a sign reading "RHIRD REVEL: ROTS of RUCK", which Scooby reads as "Third Level: Lots of Luck" without his impediment, much to Shaggy's bafflement.
  • Stereotype Flip: Scooby is klutzy, cowardly, goofy, and prefers to stay out of trouble, despite being a Great Dane, a breed seen as a proud, graceful, brave hunting hound (though he does have the affectionate nature often associated with the breed). According to his designer, he's visually meant to have as few Great Dane traits as possible barring his size and general body shape, with most of his features being the opposite of an "ideal" Great Dane.
  • Talking Animal: Played with as he has the vocabulary of an infant. There's been a couple of explanations for why this is:
    • Mystery Incorporated explains that one of his ancestors was possessed by an Eldritch Abomination alien species.
    • Apocalypse explains that his brain was cybernetically enhanced, allowing him to talk.
  • Team Pet: Although it could be argued that he is the hero, and the Meddling Kids are his sidekicks.
  • The Trickster: Not as obvious as most examples, but he has a knack for fooling most villains with various costumes and gags, and he certainly isn't above screwing with Shaggy if it suits him.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Occasionally with Shaggy.

    Daphne: [The villain] wants something...

    Shaggy: I hope it isn't me.

    Scooby: Rather you than me.

    Shaggy: Fine "man's best friend" you are!

  • Vocal Evolution:
    • Messick's original voice for Scooby was much higher-pitched and less raspy sounding before it transitioned to the style everyone's familiar with today. This is notable in several first season episodes of the original series; for example in "A Clue for Scooby-Doo", Scooby's voice repeatedly switches from the way it usually sounds to the higher voice throughout the episode, particularly in its second half.
    • Frank Welker's Scooby has all but lost the speech impediment in recent years, which is pretty evident in Be Cool, Scooby-Doo! and SCOOB!.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: While he has a lot of things to be afraid of, according to Scooby-Doo: Behind the Scenes, his biggest fear is going to the vet.

    Norville "Shaggy" Rogers

Zoinks!

Portrayed by:
Matthew Lillard (Scooby-Doo and Monsters Unleashed)
Nick Palatas (The Mystery Begins and Curse of the Lake Monster)


  • Accidental Athlete: In "The Spirited Spooked Sports Show" (1973 episode) and "Spooky Games" (2012 special), he becomes an athletic runner who runs fastest when he's scared.
  • Adaptational Attractiveness: Not as much as Velma, but What's New, Scooby-Doo? and the live-action films do feature a Shaggy more attractive than the skinny, lanky original Shaggy.
  • Adaptational Badass: In some movies and in Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated.
  • Badass Driver: Not as readily apparent as Fred's badass driving skills (since Fred is usually the one driving), but Scooby-Doo! and the Reluctant Werewolf shows that Shaggy is an accomplished race car driver, somewhat akin to Speed Racer. He also managed to successfully maneuver the Mystery Machine around other cars and over a river without crashing or hitting the water, at high speed, with no breaks in Scooby-Doo! and the Monster of Mexico. On very rare occasions he has crossed into Backseat Driver territory, reaching over and grabbing the wheel if Fred loses control of the van.
  • Bavarian Fire Drill: His and Scooby's specialty: Once an Episode in nearly every series or movie, they'll trick the monster with some kind of elaborate ruse and disguise made on the fly — which always works, even when it probably shouldn't. These cons have become such a staple of the formula that recent works tend to lampshade their effectiveness.
  • Beatnik: He is part this and part hippie, minimizing the usual beatnik stereotypes.
  • Big Eater: With Scooby. If Fred wants to find a monster, Shaggy will volunteer to investigate the kitchen, and prepare a large snack for himself and Scooby — until the monster comes to interrupt the meal.
  • Black Belt in Origami: In "Mystery Mask Mix-Up", he tries to bluff a Chinese ghost by saying, "I know judo, chop suey and Chinese checkers!"
  • Butt-Monkey: He is the victim of practically every unfortunate occurrence in the series, from Fred's insane plans to simply being in the wrong place at the wrong time. More than one instance sees him as literal live bait.
  • Catchphrase: "Scooby-Doo, where are you?", "Zoinks!", "Like, wow!" and "Gang Way!"
  • Character Exaggeration: He and Scooby have both grown increasingly cowardly over time, although they do have their Badass moments.
  • Classical Anti-Hero: Shaggy's probably even more likely to turn tail on a mystery than Scooby is.
  • Collector of the Strange: According to the "Those Meddling Kids" interviews, Shaggy has the largest collection of decorator belt buckles in the world. 653, he last counted. In fact, he wears a different one for every mystery. The joke is his baggy green shirt always hides the buckles.
  • Cool Big Bro: To Maggie (nicknamed "Sugie").
  • Cowardly Lion: Not quite to the same extent as Scooby, but when his friends are in trouble he can be counted on to swallow his fear (and his goofiness) and help them any way he can — even if it means walking into danger.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Across the various shows and films, it's generally consistent that when his fear isn't a factor — either because he's too determined to be scared, distracted from his fear or simply doesn't know or think there's something scary going on — he's actually quite a brilliant investigator. Legend of the Phantosaur even turns him into an action hero.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Shaggy especially in the early episodes would often make snarky remarks and can be sarcastic even to Scooby and his friends. For example in "Never Ape an Ape Man" he sarcastically tells the gang that he is King Kong when he is accidentally caught in a trap meant for the apeman. In another episode where the gang are in Hawaii Shaggy sarcastically says to Daphne "Hey Daph, did you have to ask?"
  • Depending on the Writer: Shaggy is depicted as a vegetarian in What's New, Scooby-Doo?, the live-action movies and the DTV movies between Legend of the Vampire and Samurai Sword. This is due to the fact that Casey Kasem only agreed to play Shaggy if he was vegetarian (see Wag the Director below). Since Kasem retired the role in 2010, Shaggy has gone back to eating meat.
    • How intelligent he (and to a lesser extent Scooby) is: even within the same shows, Shaggy can go from being Too Dumb to Live and needing to be explained most things to being surprisingly clever and figuring out clues along with the rest of the gang, even sometimes solving the mystery himself, depending on how the episode goes.
  • Dirty Coward: Usually averted, but in the first live action movie he DOES at one point suggest letting Fred and Velma get eaten after they're captured by monsters.
  • The Drag-Along: He always gets paired with Scooby even though both have a fear of the paranormal.
  • Dub Name Change:
    • In Japan, his name is Boroppin.
    • In French, he's called Sammy.
    • In Brazilian Portuguese, he's known as Salsicha.
  • Embarrassing First Name: Norville. Thus, he only goes by "Shaggy" — can you blame him? What parent names their child Norville? According to the "Those Meddling Kids" interviews, he was once nicknamed "Buzz" until his tenth birthday.
  • Expy: Unsure of what the voice of a hippie would sound like, Casey Kasem based his vocal style and mannerisms for Shaggy on those of Richard Crenna's character Walter Denton from Our Miss Brooks.
  • Extreme Omnivore: Can be bribed with dog biscuits, will eat almost any human food, and an x-ray of his stomach in Legend of the Phantosaur reveals several bits of metal, two complete fish skeletons, and two nails.
  • G-Rated Stoner: One of the codifiers for the archetype, it's infamous to the point where urban legend is that Shaggy is intentionally a stoner. He dresses like a scruffy hippie, is constantly hungry, and talks to his dog. Surprisingly, this was unintentional. Shaggy was just intended to be a "hip" beatnik/hippie cross, but at the time of the release the look had become so mainstream that it wasn't simply associated with drug users. Still, this hasn't stopped future incarnations from making jokes about Shaggy and marijuana.
  • Grease Monkey: Some of Shaggy's careers are related to cars or mechanics.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Scooby. In fact, he's the only character other than Scooby himself to appear in every version of the franchise.
  • Hidden Depths: Despite his general demeanor, he's shown occasional flashes of being smarter than you'd think he is. In addition, Scooby-Doo and the Ghoul School suggests that he does or will have a college degree in education as to qualify for such a job, quite possibly putting him at the second highest level education level in the gang behind Velma.
  • Invincible Incompetent: With Scooby. They always seem to end up finding the weekly monster despite their cowardice, laziness, and their usual lack of investigative skills.
  • The Lancer: When the gang does split up, Shaggy leads one half. Shaggy (along with Scooby) often notices creepy things that Fred had missed. Shaggy likes to sneak away with Scooby to eat a large snack.
    • He's also the de facto leader when Fred and the girls aren't around, such as the Scooby Doo and Scrappy Doo shorts and films such as Scooby Doo Meets the Boo Brothers, where he actually keeps Scooby focused on solving the mystery rather than on finding snacks.
  • Let's Get Dangerous!: He'll do anything to help his dog. This applies also to the girls and Fred, but to a lesser extent.
  • Like Is, Like, a Comma: Part of his Hippie Speak. In one episode of Mystery Inc, like, Velma is trying to, like, make him, like, stop. It puts him on the receiving end of a scathing "The Reason You Suck" Speech from Harlan Ellison in one episode.
  • Lovable Coward: In the early seasons, it's justified as even though the so-called monster is a person pulling a "Scooby-Doo" Hoax, they are still sometimes dangerous criminals who will kill if their trick doesn't scare off the intruder. While later series remove that fact, some of the Direct-to-Video Films brought it back.
  • Lovable Jock: It isn't apparent at first, but Shaggy is actually a school athlete. His considerable speed — that he puts to use in running away from the monster — is the product of his time on the school track team, and in the original series episode "What a Night for a Knight", Daphne says that he's "the swinging-est gymnast in school".
  • Nervous Wreck: Usually. He's easily scared and tends to panic under pressure.
  • Never Gets Fat: He and Scooby eat huge amounts of food in one sitting, but they remain pretty trim. Justified when one recalls they are very often running away from danger and the speeds that Shaggy can go through can rival Olympian athletes. The original cartoon even noted Shaggy was in track and a gymnast. Little wonder he goes through so much food with Scooby if they're burning it through regular amounts of panic-induced exercise. According to Scooby-Doo: Behind the Scenes, Shaggy goes on a vegan diet, the real reason he's so skinny. However, he once had to battle an unhealthy habit of overeating the Scooby Snacks; he actually ate forty percent of his body weight! This resulted in Shaggy starting his vegan diet and beginning a new hobby: collecting decorator belt buckles.
  • New-Age Retro Hippie: Subverted; he's often thought as this by modern viewers, but he was based off a beatnik characternote Maynard G Krebs, for those who care from the late 50's sitcom The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis.
  • Nice Guy: He may be cowardly and will likely run at anything remotely creepy, but he will always put his friends first, even before his pure love of eating. He really is a nice and friendly guy.
  • Non-Standard Character Design: An unintentional example. Shaggy kept his Skintone Sclerae twenty years after his initial debut, even throughout the late '80s, where he was placed with other characters who did undergo Art Evolution, and were granted white coloring to their eyes.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: You'd never know what his real name was in the original show – it was revealed in A Pup Named Scooby-Doo and reiterated in Mystery Inc. The name was used in one episode of What's New, Scooby-Doo? and his friends didn't know who "Norville" was until the character who mentioned the name said he's also known as Shaggy. According to Scooby-Doo: Behind the Scenes, he was nicknamed Buzz until his tenth birthday.
  • Parental Substitute: Scooby is Scrappy's official caretaker, but Shaggy is the one who tells him to go to bed and sometimes scolds, but both seem to like each other, though Scrappy doesn't display it as exuberantly as he does with his uncle Scooby.
  • Static Character: There has never been more to this guy than eating, cowardice, and being Scooby's best friend.
  • Stoners Are Funny: Shaggy may or may not be an actual stoner, but how can people not jump to that conclusion? He's always hungry (he eats dog treats, for crying out loud), he's always freaking out over monsters, he thinks his dog (Scooby) can talk – though granted, his friends all think so too – he looks and speaks like a hippie stereotype, along with being a vegetarian during the Turn of the Millennium.
  • Sweet Tooth: Early on in particular, when 99% of his weird sandwiches and other oddball food concoctions consisted of putting chocolate sauce on everything. And in the rare case it wasn't chocolate sauce, it was ice cream.
  • Tough Room: Shaggy doesn't get laughs often, and when he does, it's usually just Scooby (who himself isn't too sure what's so funny.)

    Scooby: I don't get it.

  • Valley Girl: Like, a male example of Hippie Speak. Still doing it fifty years later, man.
  • Verbal Tic: His frequent use of the hedge word "like".
  • Ventriloquism: Shaggy will sometimes use his ability to "throw his voice" to fool the villains.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Occasionally with Scooby.

    Fred: Scooby, sneak up closer and see if you can tell what [the Mad Scientist] is up to.

    Scooby: Me?

    Shaggy: You're the only Scooby around here. (aside) Thank goodness.

  • Vocal Evolution:
    • Casey Kasem's Shaggy got slower and rougher as he aged.
    • When Matthew Lillard portrayed Shaggy in the live-action films, his voice sounded almost identical to Casey Kasem's, save for being slightly higher-pitched. Ever since he permanently took over voicing the character in 2010, the voice became goofier-sounding and more distinct from Kasem's portrayal.
  • Wag the Director: Invoked. Whenever Casey Kasem played Shaggy in later years, the character became vegetarian because Kasem (himself a staunch vegetarian) refused to reprise the role otherwise.
    • The "Those Meddling Kids" interviews do hint toward Shaggy being a vegetarian.

    Velma Dace Dinkley 

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/original_velma.png

Jinkies!

Portrayed by:
Linda Cardellini (Scooby-Doo and Monsters Unleashed)
Randi Rosenholtz (Scooby-Doo! in Stagefright — Live on Stage)
Hayley Kiyoko (The Mystery Begins and Curse of the Lake Monster)
Sarah Gilman (Daphne & Velma)


  • Adaptational Attractiveness: Varies, but she gets hit with this semi-often. While never truly ugly, Velma was traditionally average weight, with a short-and-stout appearance, tacky haircut and a relatively plain face. Starting with Zombie Island, this started to change somewhat, especially in What's New, Scooby-Doo? and the movies (much like Shaggy), where she's made very petite with a tiny waist and an hourglass figure, with a cute-as-a-button face to boot (taken from this scene in Scooby-Doo! Camp Scare). And in the live-action films, she's played by very attractive actresses. The most recent animated movies fuse these two somewhat, and Mystery Inc. also splits the difference – Velma sports a cuter, more stylized version of her original appearance, complete with little bows in her hair. She didn't gain extra weight and freckles until a bit later after the debut so her new attractiveness is a bit closer to how she originally looked.
  • Adaptation Dye-Job: She has auburn-colored hair in the cartoons, but the live-action films depict Velma with dark brown hair.
  • Adaptational Jerkass: In Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated, she is more cynical, self-centered, vain, and sarcastic, similar to the titular protagonist of Daria. Most of these changes however, are to do with her being written a lot more like an actual teenager would act, and justifiable given that the Crapsack World of Mystery Incorporated is harsh towards anyone with a semblance of decency. She takes a level in kindness thanks to Character Development.
  • Adaptation Relationship Overhaul: In Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated, she and Scooby generally don't get along very well, often feuding over Shaggy and generally being nasty towards each other — to the point that in one episode, when Scooby is thrown in prison over a crime that he didn't commit, Velma doesn't care all that much because now she has Shaggy all to herself note for obvious reasons, he winds up dumping her at the end. Now, let's compare that to previous productions like A Pup Named Scooby-Doo, What's New, Scooby-Doo? and Scooby-Doo! in Where's My Mummy?, where Velma is all but stated to be Scooby's second best friend.
  • Adaptational Sexuality: As stated under Ambiguously Bi below, she's been shown as attracted to men in several different continuities. Meanwhile, JamesGunn and Tony Cervone have stated that in the continuities they wrote for or produced, Velma was meant to be a lesbian (with Executive Meddling reducing her to her Ambiguous Bisexuality in the Live Action Films while Shaggy was her Last Het Romance in Mystery Incorporated). In James Gunn's case, this is because the movie was originally intended as a massive deconstruction of the Scooby-Doo canon, with Shaggy being The Stoner, Fred a gangster, etc.
  • Added Alliterative Appeal: Half her dialog in The Mystery Begins.
  • Adventurer Archaeologist: She becomes one in Where's My Mummy. Interestingly, in an episode of The New Scooby-Doo Mysteries, Velma has an uncle named John who's an archaeologist.
  • Advertised Extra: In spite of her, Fred, and Daphne's silhouettes appearing in the title sequence of Shaggy & Scooby-Doo Get a Clue!, the three of them only have speaking appearances in "Shags to Riches" and "Almost Ghosts", the only thing coming after that being a silent cameo by Fred and Daphne without Velma in "Inside Job".
  • Agent Scully: She is the more vocal skeptic of the group, but for the most part she just goes along with it. Though in one episode of Mystery Incorporated, she wished for once that the supernatural was real.
  • Ambiguously Bi: She's expressed interest in Shaggy, Ben Ravencroft, Patrick Wisely, Sam Winchester, and a few other guys like the Wild Brood and Johnny Bravo, but is also Ambiguously Gay with Hot Dog Water. She also calls Daphne a "smoking hot chick" as a codename at one point in Mystery Incorporated.
  • Ambiguously Jewish:
    • Especially her version from Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated, who likes Klezmer music and frequently says "Oy" and "Oy gevalt".
    • However, the original Velma also manifests some traits frequently associated with Jews. Brainy Brunette? Check. Love for books? Check. Sarcastic wit? Check.
    • In addition, Frankencreepy reveals her great-grandparents were German immigrants who lived in the 19th-early 20th century, and exactly during this period Germany had a large Ashkenazi Jewish diaspora, many of whom immigrated to US over the decades. Velma's ancestor Baron von Dinkenstein was a Mad Scientist, and her family seems to have a strong scientific background in general — and the Ashkenazi diaspora is renowned for its large number of scientists, including Albert Einstein, Niels Bohr, Max Born, J. Robert Oppenheimer, etc.
    • This was also hinted at in some of the comics. There was one instance where she said she didn't celebrate Christmas and it was hinted she celebrated Hanukkah instead.
    • One of her voice actresses, Mindy Cohn, is reportedly Ashkenazi Jewish.
    • In the live stage production "Scooby-Doo in Stagefright", she was also played by a Jewish actress, Randi Rosenholtz.
    • However, one comic during the DC Comic run, "Diamond Dog", was about the Gang visiting Saul Slotnik, Daphne's Jewish maternal uncle, but nothing is said about Velma's Jewish faith.
  • Art Evolution: As mentioned in the Adaptational Attractiveness entry above, Velma didn't have freckles and was slightly thinner in the original series.
  • Beautiful All Along: Rarely, she will lose the frumpy outfit and thick glasses to reveal she actually can be quite pretty. She's also pretty well-endowed, even though she downplays it with her oversized orange sweater (and even then, her bust can be noticeable even within it such as in Scooby-Doo! Frankencreepy).
  • Blind Without 'Em: She was always losing her glasses in the original series. (A common gag on the show: Whenever she loses her glasses, the Monster of the Week is the one who hands them back to her, and she doesn't realize how close he is until she puts them on.) Nicole Jaffe, the actress who originally played Velma, admitted in an interview that at the initial taping of the show, she accidentally dropped her glasses. She then exclaimed something the writers adapted into her catchphrase: "My glasses! I can't see without them!"
  • Book Smart: While it varies depending on the adaptation, Velma is generally portrayed as being very knowledgeable due to studying in books and, in series produced after the advent of the internet, online. She generally knows math, and in What's New, Scooby-Doo?, she knows a bit of history.
  • Boyish Short Hair: Her hair is styled into a short bob cut, making it significantly shorter than Daphne's hair. Her Be Cool incarnation's hair is slightly more shorter.
  • Brainy Brunette: Maybe not the original, but certainly one of the best examples... if one considers her a brunette (her hair has always been sort of brownish chestnut). According to the "Meddling Kids" interviews, her parents pushed her at an early age to excel in her studies, resulting in her winning hundreds of awards for outstanding achievement. Because of this, she can be more vocal than her friends would like.
  • Butt-Monkey: In the early series, she's often forced to carry her friends to run away from the monster, or her friends would hide behind her.
  • Catchphrase:
    • "Jinkies!" According to Scooby-Doo: Behind the Scenes, Velma used to say "Oh, my!" but it wasn't catchy. She claims that her catchphrase just came out of nowhere and it stuck.
    • There's also "My glasses! I can't see without them!" whenever she loses them.
  • Character Exaggeration: While she was always The Smart Girl, it wasn't really played up as the crux of her role in the formula until A Pup Named Scooby-Doo. These days, her being a Hollywood Nerd is typically exaggerated, and she's often the only one allowed to do intelligent things (like the summation).
  • The Chessmaster: Sometimes tends to be the benign version of this trope, most notably in "Where's My Mummy". She also seems to love secrecy (see Cryptic Conversation), probably implying that she derives pleasure from baffling others.
  • Cryptic Conversation: Sometimes tends to be cryptic and keeps most of her conclusions to herself till The Reveal; this is a trait she shares with Sherlock Holmes and many other fictional detectives.

    Ricky: Velma, you can't just say it and keep it a secret... I mean, if she understands the mystery, just say who the bad guy is, just blurt it out, and we can all go home.

    Shaggy: Mr. G, that's not really how we do things.

  • Dangerously Short Skirt: In later incarnations, especially Mystery Inc. and Guess Who?, her skirt has gotten noticeably shorter.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Played up in her most recent incarnations, as well as the earliest shows before her smart guy traits were played up.
  • Demoted to Extra:
    • The 80's era of cartoons that primarily focused on Shaggy and Scooby only featured her and Fred in occasional guest appearances on The New Scooby-Doo Mysteries.
    • Velma and Fred were again subjected to having their importance toned down, this time with Daphne joining them, in Shaggy & Scooby-Doo Get a Clue!. The premiere episode "Shags to Riches" and the episode "Almost Ghosts" are the only episodes of the series featuring them in speaking roles. While Fred and Daphne would make one last silent cameo in "Inside Job", Velma didn't receive such luck.
  • Depending on the Writer: The Those Meddling Kids commercials from the '90's suggest that she has an older sister, while the direct-to-video movies in the 2010's say that she has a younger sister (Madelyn) instead.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: Implied with the original Velma from Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!: in at least two occasions, she went barefoot by choice while Shaggy, Fred and Daphne were shod. Probably has to do with the fact that the series were filmed between The '60s and The '70s, when barefooting was a trend.
  • Dub Name Change:
    • In Japan, her name is Megakko, possibly referring to meganekko.
    • In Latin American Spanish, she's called Vilma.
    • In the French language version, her name was localized as Véra.
  • Even Nerds Have Standards: Sometimes she's embarrassed to be around other nerds, like Gibby Norton from What's New, Scooby-Doo? and Jason Wyatt from Mystery Inc.. Both being her Stalkers with a Crush.
  • Expospeak: At the beginning of some episodes, she tends to show off her Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness, leaving Shaggy and Scooby (and sometimes Fred) confused, with either Fred or Velma herself translating what she just said. Like this exchange from "Hassle in the Castle":

    Velma: It's very simple. When the barometric pressure dropped, and the warm offshore air came in contact with an inland cold front, we ran into some unnavigable nubilation.
    Fred: You're right, Velma. Whatever you said.
    Velma: I said we're lost in the fog.

  • Flanderization: She's normally a bright girl, but she becomes a bit inept (not of her own doing) when she loses her glasses. However, a particular bit of brain fart is puzzling. In "The Ghost Of The Red Baron", she is sent airborne in a bi-plane she has no control of, and she forgets the international distress radio call (followed by an atypical Daphne response):

    Velma: Let's see, what was it? January? February? ...March? April? Mayday!! That's it!!
    Daphne: That's Velma. What's she calling "mayday" for? Today's June 5th!

    • In What's New, Scooby Doo?, Velma became a bit more as snarky as she was smart, albeit her fear of clowns came suddenly to the surface. And in Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated, she tacks on cynicism, her obsessiveness to Shaggy and her contempt (as of episode 10) of Scooby.
  • Gadgeteer Genius:
    • At least in What's New, Scooby-Doo? where she's capable of building (among other things) a robot dog with a remarkable number of functions and an MP3 player the size of a sugar cube (though the latter lacked an earphone jack).
    • In A Pup Named Scooby-Doo, she built (apparently from scratch) a computer that defies all manner of reality in how it can be stored or moved, and has features that even modern rigs lack.
  • The Glasses Come Off: Averted. Not only she is blind without her glasses, she also loses some of her intelligence. She even mistakes the Black Knight for Shaggy in the first episode.
  • Grand Theft Me: In Scooby-Doo! Curse of the Lake Monster, she gets possessed by the ghost of Wanda Grubwort so the villain can enact her revenge for being burned at the stake.
  • Hidden Buxom: In plenty of cases where she is in an outfit aside from her iconic sweater and skirt, she is shown to have a rather curvy build (notable examples being her rocker outfit in Legend of the Vampire and her dress when she's corrupted into becoming a Mad Scientist in Frankencreepy).
  • Hidden Depths: Velma is a surprisingly good singer, as seen in the finale of Scooby-Doo! Music of the Vampire and in the finale of Scooby-Doo and the Legend of the Vampire though she herself has Stage Fright until she actually starts singing and realizes how much the crowd is loving it.
    • Ironic that she has stage fright, considering that she has no problem talking to a crowd.
  • Hollywood Nerd: Glasses? Check. Freckles? Check. Always looks for a logical explanation? Check. The third one comes back to bite her in The Goblin King, when freaky Halloween things start happening simultaneously.
  • Ink-Suit Actor:
    • Velma is pretty much the spitting image of her first voice actress, Nicole Jaffe.
    • Kate Miccuci also looks like she could play a live-action Velma.
  • Jewish Smartass: She is Ambiguously Jewish, and has a Deadpan Snarker personality.
  • Loves Secrecy: There are times when she's figured out key elements of the mystery, but keeps most of her conclusions to herself until The Reveal.
  • Magic Skirt: Her skirt almost never goes up. Though nearly averted in one scene in Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island and an episode of Mystery Incorporated, when she finds herself up in the air she immediately pulls down her skirt in embarrassment, denying a Panty Shot those times.
    • A glaring example is in the first live-action movie. A botched Fred plan leaves Velma hanging upside down by one foot and her skirt doesn't flip over. This was due to Linda Cardellini (who played Velma) having her skirt taped to her legs as Warner Bros. wanted the movie to remain family friendly.
  • Meganekko: Possibly even an Ur-Example of the trope. Early Japanese dubs even renamed her Megako to invoke the trope.
  • Nerds Are Sexy: She has a pretty notable fanbase in certain circles. Being a meganekko hardly hurts.
    • Even in-universe, Velma's been repeatedly given admirers and/or romantic interests. Be they possibly Beau from Zombie Island, Gibby from What's New?, Shaggy himself in Mystery Incorporated, Flim-Flam in The Curse of the 13th Ghost...
  • Omnidisciplinary Scientist: She seems to know everything, at least items convenient to the plot.
  • Only Sane Woman: Compared to her friends at least. Then again, it's not hard to seem this way when paired with a talking dog, a cowardly hippie, an accident prone Valley Girl and an ascot wearing blond jock who drives a green hippie van with orange flowers on it.
  • Panty Shot: Having a magic skirt hasn't prevented her from falling into this territory on several occasions (the original series' "Decoy For a Dognapper" when she and Shaggy are swarmed by bats, "The Babysitter From Beyond" from A Pup Named Scooby-Doo among others).
  • Perpetual Smiler: Unless something annoys or scares her, she can almost always be seen sporting a content smile no matter what's going on — especially noticeable during the summations, which she almost always does with a big smile on her face. Particularly used in the more recent movies, where most things that make her frown last less than a few seconds. Dramatically reversed in Mystery Incorporated, where she spends a lot of time annoyed with her teammates. Her default facial expression here is "grumpy".
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Early in the series she is capable of carrying the entire gang while running away from the monster despite being the shortest member.
  • Plucky Girl: Arguably the most fearless member of Mystery Inc.
  • Put on a Bus: Velma was phased out of the series after Scooby-Doo and Scrappy-Doo, but eventually came back for occasional guest appearances in The New Scooby-Doo Mysteries, the premiere episode of which explained that she had been working for NASA. After that, the only other series that had her (as well as Fred and Daphne) phased out of the spotlight was Shaggy & Scooby-Doo Get a Clue!, where "Shags to Riches" and "Almost Ghosts" were the only episodes where all three of Shaggy and Scooby's friends appeared together and had speaking roles.
  • Race Lift: Portrayed by Hayley Kiyoko, who is half-Japanese and half-white, in the live-action Cartoon Network made-for-TV movies.
  • "Scooby-Doo" Hoax: Actually pulls off one of these herself in Scooby-Doo! in Where's My Mummy? in order to protect the tomb of Cleopatra from greedy TV Producers, adventurers, and tomb raiders, having plotted with Prince Omar to terrorize them as Cleopatra's mummy and her undead army that turned said grave robbers to stone with some incredible special effects.
  • Serial Romeo: Actually rivals Shaggy in the number of love interest's she's had across the franchise (including multiple times where she's been paired with Shaggy himself), and depending on what you count she might even have more. What's more, unlike the rest of the gang who are typically comically awkward about crushes, Velma is generally portrayed as fairly bold romantically (and on occasion, comically aggressive).
  • Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness: Her dialog in The Mystery Begins.
  • She's Got Legs: Not quite to the same level as Daphne's, but they look nice anyway due to Velma usually wearing a pleated skirt. Especially noticeable in Scooby-Doo and Guess Who?.
  • Shorter Means Smarter: Depending on the Artist, of course, but according to some guidebooks, she is only 4'9".
  • Sickly Neurotic Geek: In the What's New, Scooby-Doo episode "There's No Creature Like Snow Creature", she gets a cold from the freezing snow and is stuffed up for the rest of the episode.
  • The Smart Girl: Arguably a Trope Codifier. In her very first episode in 1969, Velma is the only member of the gang to recognize that the unusual family name of the missing person ("Hyde White") is typical for English surnames (where two family names are at times combined). The series quickly established her as the smartest member of the group, a role further explored in later incarnations of the franchise. She has variously been depicted as a child prodigy, teen genius, inventor, NASA scientist, etc. and as having extensive knowledge in various fields. Some versions of the series depict her as the only member of the team intelligent enough to realize the meaning of the various clues which the team has gathered.
  • Stronger Than They Look: Occasionally in the classic shows, she ends up carrying the entire gang while running away from the monster-of-the-week.
  • Sweater Girl: Just look at her! Especially in the original series (with its Limited Wardrobe), it was extremely rare she ever took that oversized sweater off.
  • Teen Genius: She is a teenager like the others and highly intelligent. She is usually the one to figure out the mystery.
  • The Trickster: There are some indications that she likes mystifying others and creating mysteries just as much as she likes solving them (at least, as long as it's for a noble purpose):
    • She was the only Mystery Inc. member to actually perpetrate a "Scooby-Doo" Hoax in Scooby-Doo! in Where's My Mummy?.
    • In The Night when the Clown Cried episode of Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated, she dressed up as a mysterious masked figure to get the gang back together. When Fred met her, she didn't immediately reveal her identity, but amused herself at his expense a bit until he guessed it himself.
    • In the DC comics story The Greatest of Us All, Velma was the one who suggested that the gang dress up as monsters themselves to help the story's good guy.
    • Not to mention the fact that she likes to keep her conclusions secret till the end of the investigation. The alternate continuity Velma from Mystery Incorporated was also very secretive: at one point she didn't tell her friends the real identity of Angel Dynamite, and was also secretly working for Mr. E together with Hot Dog Water.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Tomboy to Daphne's Girly Girl. She has Boyish Short Hair and is traditionally more into the actual investigations.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Or clowns, in What's New, Scooby-Doo? as the result of an incident at a childhood birthday party where many of her favorite books and encyclopedias were thrown into a wood chipper by a party clown. The clown thought she would be entertained... it left her emotionally scarred. Strangely, she does not show any notable fear of the Ghost Clown in the original series.
  • Youthful Freckles: In most incarnations, though not all. It is one of the few physical hints that Velma is, in fact, the youngest member of the group (not counting Scooby).

Portrayed by:
Sarah Michelle Gellar (Scooby-Doo and Monsters Unleashed)
Kate Melton (The Mystery Begins and Curse of the Lake Monster)
Sarah Jeffrey (Daphne & Velma)


  • Abandoned Catchphrase: Daphne does not actually say "Jeepers!" throughout the entire run of A Pup Named Scooby-Doo, and would not again until Scooby-Doo and the Cyber Chase a full decade later. See also "Creepers!" below.
  • Action Girl: Later adaptations have Daphne display many abilities as if she's nearly the gang's own Lara Croft. The routine in nearly every direct-to-video film is to have a scene or two that showcases her action skills, and often the rest of the gang being surprised.
  • Adaptational Badass: Overall, Daphne has been portrayed as more badass in later adaptations than in earlier ones, but she still flits between being an Action Girl and Distressed Damsel in each production.
  • Adaptational Dumbass: In Be Cool, Scooby-Doo! she is very ditzy compared with previous incarnations, although she remains very competent and courageous.
  • Adaptational Skimpiness: Downplayed in Be Cool, Scooby-Doo. Her dress has short sleeves and she lacks the pink tights underneath, leaving her legs bare.
  • Adaptational Wealth: A Pup Named Scooby-Doo portrayed her as being born wealthy, and most every adaptation after the fact keeps this trait as a constant. Some works even revise her to be The Team Benefactor.
  • Advertised Extra: She, Velma, and Fred's silhouettes can be seen in the opening sequence of Shaggy & Scooby-Doo Get a Clue!, but "Shags to Riches" and "Almost Ghosts" are the only episodes where the three appear with speaking roles and all that came after that was Daphne and Fred making a silent cameo in "Inside Job".
  • Bare Your Midriff: Becoming increasingly common as of late. She spends a good portion of Aloha, ''Camp Scare'' and a few episodes of What's New, Scooby-Doo? in a bikini or other midriff-baring outfit.
  • Big Sister Instinct: She looks out for Scrappy when they're paired up.
  • Biker Babe: Shown in recent movies, such as Phantosaur and Big Top. And yet, according to Moon Monster Madness, she doesn't have a driver's license. Even odder, it was stated in the original series that she couldn't even ride a bicycle.
  • Bound and Gagged: Not as often as you might think for a character nicknamed "Danger-Prone Daphne", but regularly enough to deserve an honorable mention.
  • Borrowed Catchphrase: By the early 2000's, Daphne has adopted Shaggy's catchphrase of "Scooby-Doo, where are you?"
  • The Bus Came Back: Shaggy and the dogs would then join her in her new career as a reporter in the second half of the 80s.
  • Catchphrase: "Jeepers!"
    • She also used "Creepers!" as an alternative throughout the The Scooby-Doo Show, but this was abandoned by the Scrappy Era.
  • Character Exaggeration: She gets hit with this a lot less than the others, primarily because writers are always trying to pin down a personality for her, but depending on the series or movie things like her being a fashionista or being clumsy can be exaggerated.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Becomes this nearly whenever Fred is over-attentive at an attractive lady.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: In Be Cool, Scooby-Doo!.
  • Cloudcuckoolander's Minder: To Freddy in A Pup Named Scooby-Doo.
  • Color Motifs: She always wears purple or magenta, or outfits with some amount of these. It's featured as also being a trait of all her female cousins.
  • Composite Character: When she rejoined the series as a regular in The New Scooby-Doo and Scrappy-Doo Show and Fred and Velma didn't, she became The Leader of the gang and solved most of the mysteries, basically taking on the roles that Fred and Velma used to occupy.
  • Crimefighting with Cash: In A Pup Named Scooby-Doo, she's revealed to basically be the financier for all the investigations.
  • Cute Clumsy Girl: In the early days. Other cast members sometimes sarcastically refer to her as "Danger Prone Daphne". According to Scooby-Doo and the Loch Ness Monster, being "danger prone" runs in the family.
  • Damsel in Distress: She is often kidnapped by the villain of the week in most incarnations. Later incarnations such as the live-action movies have her saving herself or fighting off her attackers. Many of the later animated movies and series have followed suit in terms of upgrading Daphne's combat competency.
  • Dark-Skinned Redhead: In Camp Scare and Legend of Phantasaur, she's depicted with noticeably tanner skin than the other members of Mystery Inc. (Possibly justified in Camp Scareas an actual suntan given she's seen in a bikini and shorts for much of the film.)
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: As a kid, in flashbacks and prequels, she was portrayed as a bit on the catty side before mellowing out after the time she's spent with the rest of the gang.
  • Demoted to Extra: Unlike Fred and Velma, she avoided this treatment in the 80's era of cartoons due to The New Scooby-Doo and Scrappy-Doo Show episode actually having her rejoin Shaggy and Scooby as part of the main cast after she was left out in the shows produced after Scooby-Doo and Scrappy-Doo. It is, however, played straight with Shaggy & Scooby-Doo Get a Clue!, where she, Fred, and Velma only had speaking roles together in the episodes "Shags to Riches" and "Almost Ghosts" and after that made a final silent cameo along with Fred in "Inside Job".
  • Depending on the Artist: Due to different animators, her eye color is completely variable, ranging from black, to blue, to purple, to green. Black is the base color used for almost every character from 1969-1991.
  • Depending on the Writer: It's never made clear if her father took on her mother's last name or if her mother took on her father's last name. Her name was soft-retconned into being Blake after The Scooby-Doo Show introduce her paternal uncle, Matt Blake.
    • According to Scooby-Doo: Behind the Scenes, Daphne always wanted to be a supermodel and a detective even as a child (the latter of which disappointed her parents). Her aspirations had an effect on her personal life as she was always late for dates whenever she went on mysteries with the gang; she and Fred deny the rumors that they are dating. Her father gave her and her friends the money to start off and, prior to buying the Mystery Machine, Daphne provided the gas money to drive them to where there were mysteries to be solved.
    • A Pup Named Scooby-Doo establishes her as a Rich Kid — and most every adaptation thereafter holds onto the concept—but how this trait affects her personality differs pretty wildly. A Pup Named leans her closer to foolish and haughty rather than outright mean, while Mystery Incorporated loosely turns her into something of a Socialite, and even Be Cool! seems to imply she's a Lonely Rich Kid haunted by her own upbringing. In any case, being an amateur sleuth that travels the world, she's always the Non-Idle Rich.
  • Designated Victim: Typically being the member of the gang most likely to get abducted, get trapped, get hypnotized, fall through a secret passage. According to Scooby-Doo! and the Loch Ness Monster, this is apparently a Blake family trait. When being introduced to the family's castle, it's explained that the Blake family developed a reputation for falling into traps of their own design.
  • The Ditz: Occasionally she would guess the culprit wrong for the real one to be revealed by Velma.
  • Dub Name Change: In Japan, her name is Jeni/Jenny.
    • Hungarians know her as Dianna.
  • Dude, Where's My Respect?: Recently, she's often rudely shunned for Velma as the more attractive eye-candy. First began with What's New Scooby-Doo?, and noticeable in Camp Scare.
  • Dumbass No More: While hardly stupid before, her return in The New Scooby-Doo and Scrappy-Doo Show made her much smarter, as she was now in charge of the group and leading investigations.
  • Fashion Dissonance: There's often a belief shown in later appearances, such as A Pup Named Scooby-Doo and the first Scooby-Doo live-action film, that go-go boots are Daphne's regular footwear. Her character image above and every appearance in Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!, and nearly every other series and film that follows, show that she mostly wears pumps.
  • The Fashionista: Wears an abundance of chic outfits in the live-action films and in A Pup Named Scooby-Doo, she stops an investigation because of mud on her go-go boots. Also gets regularly distracted by outfits she sees in stores.
  • Fiery Redhead: She easily has the shortest temper of the entire cast.
  • Girly Bruiser: In the live-action movies she is portrayed as a black belt who can fight, while still being the pretty Girly Girl type.
  • Graceful Ladies Like Purple: Her outfit consists of a purple top, dress, pink pantyhose, and purple shoes. She also wears a plastic purple headband. And in some versions, she has purple eyes.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: When an attractive lady is getting all the attention from Fred — along with most of the other males present — Daphne tends to immediately paint her as the main suspect of the mystery. Except sometimes Daphne turns out to be correct.
  • The Heart: In the original series. Shaggy and Scooby were focused on food and removing themselves from the conflict, Fred and Velma are focused on investigating (and bribing Shaggy and Scooby to do so) Daphne uses Scooby snacks a lot less by comparison, quietly helped out and seemed just a bit more considerate in general. In newer adaptations, Daphne is normally the member who'll provide moral support.
  • Impossible Hourglass Figure: She has a rather voluptuous figure for her body in most installments, though her original design in Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! is more realistic, as are many of the DTV movies. Although drawn realistically for the rest of the episode, ramped Up to Eleven for one scene in the Supernatural crossover "ScoobyNatural" for the purposes of a Male Gaze joke.
  • Informed Judaism: One of the DC comic stories, Diamond Dog, has the gang visit Daphne's Jewish maternal uncle, making her canonically Jewish herself. However, she never demonstrates it in any way — in contrast to Velma, who has no confirmed Jewish relatives, but is Ambiguously Jewish in both her personality traits and her cultural outlook.
  • Ink-Suit Actor: Her original incarnation bore a striking resemblance to her voice actress, Heather North.
    • She also looks very similar to her very first voice actress, Indira Stefanianna Christopherson.
  • In-Series Nickname: Danger-Prone Daphne.
  • Innocent Blue Eyes: In the comics and close ups of the original.
  • Intrepid Reporter: Whenever she's an adult, this is usually her career.
  • The Klutz: In the original Scooby-Doo, Where Are You?. Other cast members sometimes sarcastically refer to her as "Danger Prone Daphne" because of this.
  • The Leader: In The New Scooby-Doo and Scrappy-Doo Show and The New Scooby-Doo Mysteries, she took over this role, even in episodes where Fred and Velma guest-starred.
  • MacGyvering: In What's New, Scooby Doo? it's not rare for Daphne to do this, usually with items she carries around in her purse.
  • Magic Skirt: Daphne's original outfit considered of a short, purple dress, with the hemline well above her knees. But her various accidents and falls failed to lift the dress. While the 1980s incarnation of Daphne mostly wore pants, most recent incarnations have returned to variations of the purple dress.
  • The Millstone: She is the one who is constantly tripping traps, or getting kidnapped — usually getting an exasperated "Danger-prone Daphne's at it again!" when it happens. What makes her a Millstone rather than a Distressed Damsel is that it's usually her own vanity that causes problems.
  • Mixed Ancestry: She is of Scottish, French, and Jewish descent.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Daphne Blake has been providing a very large amount for kids of all ages for many, many years. And quite a few parents as well. Especially in the direct-to-video movies. For example, in Big Top Scooby-Doo!, she wears a circus gymnastic outfit that shows off her long shapely legs and voluptuous body and her clown costume also has a very low neckline. Or in Scooby-Doo! Camp Scare where she wears shorts and appears in a bikini; in fact, from What's New onward she shows up in bikinis fairly often. Lampshaded in the 2018 crossover Supernatural episode "ScoobyNatural" in which the character Dean (who in an earlier episode confessed to having a crush on her) spends most of the episode trying to woo her, and during one sequence Daphne is deliberately drawn more voluptuous than usual in relation to this (as part of a Male Gaze joke), and is also seen in a nightgown in another scene.
    • Long before this would ever be done in animation, the comics by Marvel back in 1977 to 79 had her in bikinis a few times.
  • Panty Shot: Has had the odd panty shot but not as often as Velma.
  • Plucky Girl: Along with Velma, she becomes more confident and independent as time went on.
  • Proper Tights with a Skirt: Her regular outfit from the various incarnations. Of course, then it gets played for Fanservice in the Live-Action Adaptation.
  • Put on a Bus: Along with Fred and Velma, Daphne was eschewed from the franchise in the shows that came after Scooby-Doo and Scrappy-Doo. Unlike Fred and Velma, who didn't come back until they had occasional guest appearances on The New Scooby-Doo Mysteries, Daphne actually returned to being a regular cast member starting with The New Scooby-Doo and Scrappy-Doo Show. The only other show in the franchise to date to have her, Fred, and Velma phased out to focus on Shaggy and Scooby was Shaggy & Scooby-Doo Get a Clue!, where all three were only given speaking roles in "Shags to Riches" and "Almost Ghosts", with the last appearance of any sort from any of the three in the series being a silent cameo by Fred and Daphne in "Inside Job".
  • Race Lift: In Daphne & Velma, where her mother, Elizabeth Blake, is African-American, making Daphne biracial.
  • She's Got Legs: Daphne tends to wear a purple mini dress with pink tights and other outfits that highlight her long shapely legs. Ramped Up to Eleven with her circus outfits in Big Top Scooby-Doo!, and the occasional film or TV episode that call for her to wear skimpy outfits, bikinis, nightgowns, and shorts.
  • Straight Man: She filled this role when she returned in the eighties, though when your companions are a big bumbling dog, a frazzled beatnik and an excitable puppy, this is inevitable.
  • Stylish Protection Gear: In winter episodes, she wears a fancy coat trimmed with fur.
  • Team Mom: Mostly in The New Scooby and Scrappy Doo Show and The New Scooby Doo Mysteries.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: The longer haired fashionable Girly Girl to Velma's Tomboy.

    Frederick "Fred/Freddie" Herman Jones

Voiced by:
Frank Welker(1969-present)
Carl Stevens (1988-1991 A Pup Named Scooby-Doo)
Zac Efron(2020, Scoob!)

Portrayed by:
Freddie Prinze Jr. (Scooby-Doo and Monsters Unleashed)
Robbie Amell (The Mystery Begins and Curse of the Lake Monster)

The leader of Mystery Incorporated.


  • Abandoned Catchphrase: As explained below, in The New Scooby-Doo Movies, Fred briefly had the catchphrase "Creepers!", possibly as a counterpart to Daphne's "Jeepers!", but it was never used again.
  • Adaptational Badass: In Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated where his traps are far more effective and have a greater success ratio, without losing their complexity. In addition to all, he has the most physical prowess of the gang and has occasionally used that to his advantage.
  • Adaptational Dumbass: He was originally the second smartest in the gang but has Taken a Level in Dumbass ever since Daphne started becoming more competent. Essentially Daphne took a good portion of his leadership skills and intelligence. Some incarnations exaggerate this even more. He seems to have returned to his original portrayal in Be-Cool, Scooby-Doo while Daphne was turned into a Cloud Cuckoolander with an Ambiguous Disorder.
    • Take to eleven in A Pup Named Scooby-Doo, where he's turned into a moronic conspiracy theorist that reads too much of a satirical newspaper called "The National Exaggerator" which he takes seriously and where he blames every misdeed on the neighborhood bully, Red Herring.
  • Adaptation Dye-Job: Fred has black hair instead of blond hair in the two Cartoon Network live-action films.
  • Adaptational Jerkass: He has become this in Be Cool, Scooby-Doo!, rendering him into a control freak and an unmasking hog.
  • Adaptational Name Change: In Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated, his full name is Frederick Jones Junior, named after his supposed father (who is a narcissist, so of course he named his son after himself). Though they're barely referred to as Fred Junior and Fred Senior, the fact that they share the same name is a plot point in Season 1 when important characters speak ominously of a Fred Jones (they were talking about Fred Jones, Sr.). After Season 1, Fred isn't sure if his name should really be Fred Jones or Fred Chiles, given the identity of his real father, but he continues to go by Fred Jones until the Cosmic Retcon, in which the original Fred Jones never kidnapped him and thus our Fred grew up as Fred Chiles. His usual middle name, Herman, is also never said in the show.
  • Adaptation Relationship Overhaul:
    • In Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated, Fred and Daphne become a couple by the end of the first season after Daphne pines to an oblivious Fred, but they encounter numerous bumps in their relationship and end up breaking up (and getting back together...) numerous times. Near the end of Season 1, Fred proposes to her, but ends up breaking it off in the season finale, which leads to her getting a new boyfriend for the Season 2 premiere (which also doesn't last). At the end of the show, it is revealed in the Cosmic Retcon that they're engaged again.
    • In Be Cool, Scooby-Doo!, Fred and Daphne are not a couple and show no romantic interest in each other.
    • In Scooby-Doo! Stage Fright, Daphne confesses her love to Fred and the whole movie is a Ship Tease about them until it goes back to being Will They or Won't They? at the end.

American series franchise Scooby-Doo has introduced many characters throughout its history, including numerous minor characters. These characters range from supporting characters, heroes and villains that appear infrequently, to characters that only take part in a single story. Below is the list of recurring characters that originally appeared in the Scooby-Doo multiverse in the order of appearance.

Introduced in Scooby-Doo, Where Are You![edit]

Scooby-Doo[edit]

Main article: Scooby-Doo (character)

Scooby-Doo is the eponymous character in the Scooby-Doo animated television series created by the popular American animation company Hanna-Barbera. Scooby-Doo is the pet and lifelong companion of Shaggy Rogers and in many iterations, including the original series, is regarded as a unique anthropomorphic Great Dane dog who is able to speak in broken English, unlike most other dogs in his reality, and usually puts the letter R in front of words spoken. Other incarnations, such as A Pup Named Scooby-Doo, present talking dogs like Scooby as quite common. The head of children's programming at CBS, Fred Silverman, came up with the character's name from the syllables "doo-be-doo-be-doo" in Frank Sinatra's hit song "Strangers in the Night". From 1969 to 1994, Scooby was voiced by Don Messick. In the 1997 episode of Johnny Bravo, Scooby was voiced by Hadley Kay. From 1998 to 2001, he was voiced by Scott Innes. In Scooby-Doo and Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed, Scooby was voiced by Neil Fanning. Scooby is currently (2002–present) voiced by Frank Welker (the voice of Fred Jones).

Shaggy Rogers[edit]

Main article: Shaggy Rogers

Norville "Shaggy" Rogers is a fictional character from the American animated television series Scooby-Doo, about the adventures of four crime-solving teenagers and Shaggy's pet great dane, Scooby-Doo. Shaggy is a cowardly slacker more interested in eating than solving mysteries. He is the only Scooby-Doo character (besides Scooby) to appear in all iterations of the franchise. From 1969 to 1997, Shaggy was voiced by Casey Kasem; he would return to voice him again from 2002 to 2009. In Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island, Shaggy was voiced by Billy West. From 1999 to 2001, he was voiced by Scott Innes. In Shaggy & Scooby-Doo Get a Clue!, Shaggy was voiced by Scott Menville. Shaggy is currently (2010–present) being voiced by Matthew Lillard, who played Shaggy in the live action theatrical films Scooby-Doo and Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed, in the film the young Shaggy is portrayd by Cascy Beddow and is portrayed by Nick Palatas in Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Begins and Scooby-Doo! Curse of the Lake Monster.

Fred Jones[edit]

Main article: Fred Jones (Scooby-Doo)

Sometimes called "Freddie Jones" by Daphne Blake in the franchise, he wears a blue and/or white shirt (which is sometimes worn under a white shirt, sweater, or jacket) and blue jeans. In the original depictions, Fred wears a 16 1/2 size orange ascot. In the 1990s direct-to-video movies and in the 2000s series What's New, Scooby-Doo?, Fred's outfit was given an update, with the removal of his orange ascot and two blue stripes added to his sleeves. He is often shown constructing various Rube Goldberg traps for villains, which Scooby-Doo and/or Shaggy would often set off by mistake, causing the villain to be captured another way. Fred usually takes the lead in solving mysteries. When searching for clues, Fred and Daphne usually go together with Velma coming along, but sometimes Fred and Daphne would pair off, having Velma to go with Shaggy and Scooby. In A Pup Named Scooby-Doo, Fred was depicted as being somewhat less intelligent, believing in legends such as Bigfoot and mole people, and liked reading a magazine called The National Exaggerator. In each episode, Fred would (usually wrongly) blame the crime on the neighborhood bully Red Herring (a play on the idiom red herring). In his teenage version he is shown to have many interests (obsessions for traps, martial arts, wrestling, and weight lifting). He is shown to be hopeless at speaking any language other than English. In an episode of What's New, Scooby Doo?, Fred is learning to speak French - badly - and Daphne suggests he just sticks to saying "oui oui", to which he replies, "I already did that before we left the hotel". He is typically shown to be oblivious to Daphne's romantic interests, while at the same time falling for other girls. In the episode "The Song of Mystery" from Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated, he is called Fredrick by his tutor Mary-Ann Geerdon. However, in Scooby-Doo! Adventures: The Mystery Map he is called Fredward. Fred is voiced by Frank Welker, who has retained this role throughout every incarnation of each series where Fred is portrayed as a teenager from 1969 to 1983 and again since 1997. In A Pup Named Scooby-Doo, (where he is portrayed as a child) he was voiced by former child actor Carl Steven. He is portrayed by Freddie Prinze Jr in the live action theatrical films Scooby-Doo and Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed, in the film the young Fred is portrayd by Ryan Vrba and is portrayed by Robbie Amell in Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Begins and Scooby-Doo! Curse of the Lake Monster.

Daphne Blake[edit]

Main article: Daphne Blake

Together with her other teenage companions, Fred Jones, Shaggy Rogers, Velma Dinkley, and Shaggy's pet great dane Scooby-Doo, Daphne would engage in solving various mysteries. Daphne was portrayed as the enthusiastic, but clumsy and danger-prone, hence her nickname "Danger-Prone Daphne" (revealed by her cousin, Shannon, being danger-prone is a Blake family trait in Scooby-Doo! and the Loch Ness Monster), member of the gang, who always follows her intuition. She serves as the damsel in distress and would occasionally get kidnapped, tied up, gagged and left imprisoned. Scooby and Shaggy usually save her, but sometimes Fred and Velma or even the whole gang do it. But as the franchise went on, she became a stronger, more independent character, who can take care of herself. Daphne's character is the most developed in the starring cast, going from a klutzy teenager to a successful journalist to an ingenuous fashionista to a black belt martial artist. Daphne is also seen as the moral support in adaptations such as Mystery Incorporated. When Scooby is nowhere to be found, Daphne also shouts "Scooby-Doo! Where are you?!". In later series, Daphne is the one who owns the Mystery Machine and lets Fred drive it due to her crush on him. She occasionally helps the rest of the gang capture the villain by using some random, yet helpful, accessories in her purse, backpack, or any other bag she has at the moment. For example, in one episode, the gang is tied to posts by ropes, so Daphne pulls out her credit card and slices the ropes in half, leaving her free to untie the other members of the gang. During the series' fourth incarnation, Scooby-Doo and Scrappy-Doo, some of the episodes focused on Daphne for example "Shiver and Shake, That Demon's a Snake", "The Scary Sky Skeleton" and "I Left My Neck in San Francisco". Her usual appearance consists of a purple dress, pink pantyhose, purple shoes, and a green scarf. In Scooby-Doo and the Cyber Chase, she wore a purple and green three-piece suit with matching shoes. As a child, she wore a pink sweater, red skirt, and pink pantyhose with white go-go boots. In The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo, she wore some other purple clothes with purple pants and purple high heels. While not as clever as Velma, Daphne would always solve her problems in a different way. The character later became more confident and started playing a more active role as time went on, a result of changing attitudes towards women during the 1970s and 1980s. In What's New, Scooby-Doo?, Daphne has also been known to open locks or do other tasks with strange items from her purse. The youthful pre-teenage Daphne portrayed in A Pup Named Scooby-Doo would commonly call upon her butler, Jenkins, to do various tasks, such as ridding her of people, beating up a monster, freaking out, etc. The younger Daphne is shown (along with her parents) as not believing in ghost/monsters/supernatural (one of her catchphrases in that series was "There is no such thing as ghosts/monsters!", a trait she lacks outside the A Pup Named Scooby-Doo series. This Daphne is also shown to be more narcissistic and sarcastic then usual. In the movie Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island, Daphne as a young adult, had a very successful investigative TV series called Coast to Coast with Daphne Blake on a fictionalchannel called "Americana", which the show had aired on for two seasons. The producer of the show was Fred Jones, who she began a relationship with in the film's ending. Throughout the various incarnations of the character, there has been speculation that Daphne and Fred had an attraction toward each other. This is emphasized in Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated. Throughout the first season, they are shown to be actively dating with Fred showing more of his feelings toward Daphne. Daphne was voiced by Indira Stefanianna Christopherson from 1969 to 1970. She was replaced by Heather North who would voice Daphne until 1997 and again for the two direct-to-DVD movies, Scooby-Doo! and the Legend of the Vampire and Scooby-Doo! and the Monster of Mexico. Daphne was voiced by Mary Kay Bergman from 1998 to 1999. Daphne was voiced by Grey DeLisle in 2001 and she is the current voice of Daphne. In A Pup Named Scooby-Doo Daphne was voiced by Kellie Martin. She is portrayed by Sarah Michelle Gellar in the live action theatrical films Scooby-Doo and Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed, in the film the young Daphne is portrayd by Emily Tennant and is portrayed by Kate Melton in Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Begins and Scooby-Doo! Curse of the Lake Monster and by Sarah Jeffery in Daphne & Velma

Velma Dinkley[edit]

Main article: Velma Dinkley

Throughout her various incarnations, Velma is usually portrayed as a highly intelligent young woman with various interests ranging from highly specified sciences (which in the "Scooby and Scrappy Doo" series leads her to pursue a career as a NASA research scientist) or merely being very well read on various and sometimes obscure information, such as ancient Viking writing (as in the third Scooby Doo series "The New Scooby Doo Mysteries"). In Scooby-Doo! Abracadabra-Doo, Velma is described by her younger sister Madelyn as being "born with a mystery book in her hand". Consequently, Velma is usually the one to figure out the mystery, sometimes with the help of Fred and Daphne. In the first series, notably Where Are You! and New Movies, a running gag is Velma's severe near-sightedness and her trouble with keeping her glasses on her face (usually after falling off while being chased by the villain). When Scooby is too afraid to volunteer to help with a mission, Velma often offers him a dog treat called a "Scooby Snack" as a bribe. Her catchphrases are: "Jinkies!" and "My glasses! I can't see without my glasses!" Like all of the Scooby-Doo gang, later ret-conned as Mystery Incorporated members, Velma has differing personal backgrounds and histories depending on which series one is referring to. In the original Where Are You! series, Velma attended the same high school as the rest of the gang (as stated in the episode "A Knight for a Night"). However, in the second series, The New Scooby Doo Movies, Velma is said to have graduated from a different high school than her friends (as stated in the episode "Spirited Spooked Sports Show"). In the current series, Velma is stated to be a native of Ohio, unlike the other members of the gang. But on one occasion, she mentioned she's from Texas. Velma was voiced by Nicole Jaffe from 1969 to 1973, she would voice her again in the two direct-to-DVD movies, Scooby-Doo! and the Legend of the Vampire and Scooby-Doo! and the Monster of Mexico, she was replaced by Pat Stevens who would voice Velma from 1976 to 1979. Marla Frumkin replaced her from 1979-1980 and would voice the character again in 1984. Velma was voiced by B.J. Ward from 1997 to 2002. Velma was voiced by Mindy Cohn from 2002-2015. In A Pup Named Scooby-Doo, Velma was voiced by Christina Lange. In Be Cool, Scooby-Doo!, (2015-) Velma is voiced by Kate Micucci. She is portrayed by Linda Cardellini in the live action theatrical films Scooby-Doo and Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed, in the film the young Velma is portrayd by Lauren Kennedy and is portrayed by Hayley Kiyoko in Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Begins and Scooby-Doo! Curse of the Lake Monster and by Sarah Gilman in Daphne & Velma

Jameson Hyde White[edit]

Professor Jameson Hyde White is an archaeologist from London, England. He had supposedly disappeared, but in fact he had been kidnapped by the black knight (who was actually Mr. Wickles). After Wickles was arrested he was found by the gang. He first appears in Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! episode "What a Night for a Knight" voiced by Don Messick, and later in Johnny Bravo/Scooby-Doo crossover episode, "Bravo Dooby-Doo", where he is one of the extra disguises of worn by Jebidisa Bravo.

Mr. Wickles[edit]

Mr. Wickles was the curator of the County Museum. He dressed up as the Black Knight to scare visitors away during his art forgery scheme. He was first seen at the museum thanking the gang for bringing the Black Knight ghost statue to him. Then he tells the gang that they shouldn't have with the mysterious disappearance of the professor, and because of the legend that the Black Knight coming to life at the full moon. He was unmasked as the Black Knight, once the gang found out what his scheme at the museum after they suspected him. He was working on fake paintings and switching them for the real ones at the museum, which was why he kidnapped Prof. Jameson Hyde White, because he was the only one who spotted the fake paintings Wickles made. Mr. Wickles first appears in Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! episode "What a Night for a Knight" and later in Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed portrayed by Peter Boyle. Jeremiah "Old Man" Wickles is an ex-convict who was trying to go straight by opening a mining-themed amusement park in Coolsville.

  • Mr. Wickles appears in Western comics adaptation and in the games Scooby-Doo! Classic Creep Capers and Scooby-Doo 2 for GBA and PC.

Sheriff[edit]

The Sheriff is the local law enforcement officer in Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!.

Introduced in Scooby-Doo and Scrappy-Doo shows[edit]

Scrappy-Doo[edit]

Main article: Scrappy-Doo

Scrappy-Doo was added to the cast of Scooby-Doo to save the series' ratings, which by 1979 had begun to sink to the point of cancellation threats from ABC. After his addition to the show proved to be a ratings success, Hanna-Barbera restructured the show around Scrappy in 1980. The original format of four teenagers and their dog(s) solving supernatural mysteries for a half-hour was eschewed for simpler, more comedic adventures which involved real supernatural villains (the villains in previous Scooby episodes were almost always regular humans in disguise). Scrappy remained an integral part of the Scooby-Doo franchise, on both television and in Scooby-related licensed products and merchandising, through the end of the 1980s. He was also briefly the star of his own seven-minute shorts — the Scrappy and Yabba Doo segments of The Scooby & Scrappy-Doo/Puppy Hour. Teamed with his uncle Yabba-Doo and Deputy Dusty, he helped maintain law and order in a small town in the American west. In later years, the presence of Scrappy-Doo has been criticized as having had a negative effect on the various Scooby-Doo series of the 1980s.[1] However, the gradual decline of Scooby-Doo has been credited to other factors as well, such as changes in format.[2] Scrappy-Doo has become the symbol of an irritatingly overexuberant or cute character added to a series in an attempt to maintain ratings, a phenomenon also known as Cousin Oliver Syndrome.[3] Due to the general perception of the character by audiences, Scrappy-Doo has not appeared in any Scooby-related spinoffs since the made-for-television movie Scooby-Doo and the Reluctant Werewolf in 1988, with four exceptions: In the first live-action Scooby-Doo theatrical film — where Scrappy played a decidedly negative role, wanting revenge on Mystery Inc., for abandoning him years ago (he was kicked out for continuously urinating on Daphne, being obnoxious, and the final straw was when he tried to vote himself as the leader of Mystery Inc.). When Velma is talking to a guy at the bar who likes her, she tells him that Scrappy was not a puppy, but had a glandular disorder. Although he nearly succeeds in performing the 'Darkopolypse Ritual', which would give a group of demons the power to rule Earth for the next ten thousand years, his plan is foiled and he and his minions are arrested because he underestimated the Mystery Inc. team, inviting them all to the theme park where he was conducting the ritual after they broke up years before simply to make them witness his triumph when he only needed Scooby present, intending to use Scooby's 'pure' soul to complete his ritual.

Introduced in Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated[edit]

Sheriff Bronson Stone[edit]

Sheriff Bronson Stone (voiced by Patrick Warburton) is the sheriff of Crystal Cove in Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated. He doesn't like the gang because they get in his way of solving crimes, although he turns towards them when he's in a jam. He acts as an authority figure for the kids. He had a close relationship with Mayor Fred Jones Sr., until he found out that Jones was the Freak of Crystal Cove and stopped talking to him. He felt he deserved to become mayor after Jones was arrested and is cold to Mayor Janet Nettles in the second-season premiere. Sheriff Stone is normally seen in uniform and is very rarely seen in other outfits. He wears a brown hat and sheriff's uniform and has a mustache. His actual first name is Sheriff, as his mother thought that he was destined to be one. Besides himself, Sheriff Stone also looks up to Iron Will Williamson (who was later nicknamed "Dead Justice") and, before he was found out to be the Freak of Crystal Cove, Mayor Fred Jones, Sr. When the new mayor, Janet Nettles, arrived in Crystal Cove, he felt that he should be the new mayor, and acted cold towards her, only to end up falling in love with her and beginning a steady relationship with her. In the restored world he and Janet are married with four children.

Mayor Fred Jones, Sr.[edit]

Mayor Fred Jones, Sr. (voiced by Gary Cole), was the mayor of Crystal Cove for the first season and is Fred's father. He is proud of Crystal Cove being named the "Most Haunted Place on Earth", and uses it to attract tourism. This is why he doesn't approve of his son solving mysteries and proving the monsters to be fakes. He doesn't understand Fred's obsession with solving mysteries and building traps, and is usually discouraging him. He has a tendency to blurt out alliterative phrases when startled, usually by Fred. Later in the season he is shown with a piece of the Planispheric Disc. This leads Fred to wonder and investigate about who his father really is. In the first-season finale, it is revealed that Mayor Jones is the Freak of Crystal Cove and that he had adopted Fred so he could use him to keep his real parents (Brad Chiles and Judy Reeves of the original Mystery Incorporated) from returning to Crystal Cove. He is arrested and forced out of office. His successor is Janet Nettles, who is the polar opposite of Jones, calling upon the Gang for assistance in various mysteries. He appears in the "Wrath of Krampus" as one of the gang's former enemies they enlist to help them in the plan to steal the remaining pieces of the Planispheric Disc from the original Mystery Incorporated. Despite his past betrayal, Fred says he was more than happy to help in the plan. He guards the gang's pieces of the disc during the events of the episode, and returns them after they retrieved the other three pieces. In "Nightmare in Red" the gang encounters his good half trapped in the waiting room, a supernatural prison for the good elements of those corrupted by the curse. While Nibiru had made Fred Sr. cold and unfeeling to Fred, his good half admits that Fred was the best thing in his life and he always thought of him as his real son and was proud of him. In the alternate timeline created by the gang after destroying the Evil Entity, he was the principal and soccer coach of Crystal Cove High School, and admits to Fred that he had been like a son to him.

The Original "Mystery Incorporated"[edit]

Mr. E (Ricky Owens)[edit]

Mr. E (he is voiced by Lewis Black, except in the episode "Scarebear" where he was temporarily voiced by Jeff Bennett. His younger self is voiced by Scott Menville) is a mysterious figure that gives clues to the gang throughout the first season. He doesn't reveal his face, or true identity to the gang, but helps them solve their mysteries, while giving them clues so they can solve the mystery of the original Mystery Incorporated. These clues lead them to finding out about a cursed Conquistador treasure, the secret history of Crystal Cove's founding Darrow Family, and the unsolved disappearance of the original Mystery Incorporated. Towards the end of the first season, he is revealed to be Ricky Owens, who was part of the original Mystery Incorporated and the owner of evil megacorporation Destroido. He is Shaggy's old Mystery Incorporated counterpart, and used to be skinny like Shaggy, but ends up overweight and wearing a long dark coat. Mr. E owns a van called the "Enigma Machine," an all black counterpart to the Mystery Machine. It is unknown if Mr. E is friend or foe to the new Mystery Incorporated as he has, on several occasions throughout the series, helped them to solve many of their mysteries by giving them cryptic clues. But during the events of both "The Legend of Alice May" and "Pawn of Shadows", he has caused the mysteries the gang has solved using Alice May both times, first to retrieve an old Crystal Cove High School yearbook for the gang to find out about the original Mystery Incorporated, and the second time to use them as "parrot bait" to get Professor Pericles to come help the kids out of the danger from the Obliteratrix in order to obtain his piece of the Planispheric Disc that he had taken from Mayor Fred Jones, Sr. In the episode "The Gathering Gloom" it is revealed how Ricky Owens and Professor Pericles met. Professor Pericles had crash landed in Ricky Owens' front yard when he was a child, and was injured. Ricky took Professor Pericles in and nursed him back to health and when Ricky went to set him free, Professor Pericles took off but returned to stay with Ricky. Also during the episode, the two pair up once again to go after "the Treasure". At the end of the second season, in the alternate universe created by the gang after destroying the Evil Entity, Ricky Owens is shown to no longer be Mr. E and is a lot like his younger self. He is also happily married to Cassidy Williams and the two work together with Pericles at an environmentally-friendly version of Destroido called Creationex.

Angel Dynamite (Cassidy Williams)[edit]

Cassidy Williams, alias Angel Dynamite (voiced by Vivica A. Fox and her younger self is voiced by Kimberly Brooks), is a citizen of Crystal Cove and a recurring character in Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated, as well as one of the original members of Mystery Incorporated. She first appears in "Beware the Beast from Below" as a radio DJ for Crystal Cove's K-Ghoul radio station. Before she is revealed to be Cassidy Williams, she is a friend of Scooby and the gang and is the only inhabitant of Crystal Cove who supports them as mystery-solvers. She is Velma's old Mystery Incorporated counterpart. After she is revealed, she is shown to be working with Mr. E, who has been hinted as, while she was still a member of Mystery Incorporated, once being her boyfriend, this is later confirmed in "The Midnight Zone". Upon his return to Crystal Cove, Mr. E also brought Cassidy along with him to help him seek out the Planispheric Disc and get revenge on Professor Pericles, as well as to help him keep an eye on the new Mystery Incorporated. Although she works with Mr. E, Cassidy is shown to have a great deal of concern and care for the gang. After she reveals her side of the reason why the original Mystery Incorporated left, the gang turn on her and no longer trust her as she had "been lying...since the beginning." When the Freak attacks Shaggy and Scooby at their home she and Ed Machine bring the gang to the radio station where she tries to comfort and give shelter to the gang only to have them lock her in her own booth. After attempting to contact Ed to let him know what has happened, she contacts Sheriff Bronson Stone and informs him of where the gang has gone and after rescuing her, she goes after them to make sure they are okay. During the first season of Mystery Incorporated she is seen with a 70's type outfit, with a huge afro, green bell-bottoms, green tanktop-ish type shirt, and platform shoes, as well as green eyeliner. In the second season of Mystery Incorporated, Cassidy is no longer working with Mr. E and during the events of "The Night the Clown Cried II - Tears of Doom!", Mr. E seeks her out and tells her "It would be the perfect time to get close to the kids again," but she refuses and states that she is no longer Angel Dynamite but just "Cassidy Williams," and tells him that she won't hurt the gang again. She also changes her look during the second season and cuts her afro to a much shorter curly hair and sports a trench coat and normal jeans and shoes. She begs to Brad and Judy, Fred's real parents, to stop hunting for the Conquistador treasure and to put Fred first but when they refuse she returns to K-Ghoul to start revealing the secrets of the Conquistador treasure and the curse of Crystal Cove. This has put her into real danger as Professor Pericles states to Mr. E at the end of "The Gathering Gloom" that "she will have to be silenced forever". She also begins spying on Brad and Judy. During the events of "Night Terrors", Cassidy is setting up the pictures of the Darrow family as a clue for Velma in her room to help her solve the mystery of the past mystery-solvers in Crystal Cove, including the original Mystery Incorporated, all of whom have vanished throughout the city's history. She is presumed to be dead after the events of the episode, "The Midnight Zone", and it is shown that the gang regret not reconciling with her beforehand. It is never truly revealed if she did die or just went into deep hiding. In the episode "Nightmare in Red", Cassidy is in the room of those who had been affected by the Curse of Crystal Cove, but unlike many around her, with the exception of Fred Jones, Sr., she is not her younger self, like Ricky Owens, Professor Pericles, etc. but is seen as older self in the second season after changing her look. At the end of the second season, in the alternate universe created by the gang after destroying the Evil Entity, Cassidy is shown to be alive and well and happily married to Ricky Owens. The younger version of herself is seen constantly throughout the first season of the series. Her younger self sported a more innocent look, with bow-ties holding up her curly pigtails and sporting a yellow dress. She also wore glasses.

Professor Pericles[edit]

Professor Pericles (voiced by Udo Kier) was the mascot of the original Mystery Incorporated, Scooby's counterpart of Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated. A talking parrot of incredible intelligence, he is also a highly manipulative sociopath, caring only for his own gain. Professor Pericles at first is only referenced in the series by a picture which has him circled in red marker. He makes his full-fledged appearance in the episode "Howl of the Fright Hound" where he is imprisoned in Crystal Cove's Animal Asylum. When the gang comes to visit Scooby, who is being framed for being the "Fright Hound", Daphne's locket opens of its own accords and begins playing the tune within it. Professor Pericles responds to this as he recognizes the tune. When the gang go to investigate him, he gives Fred a warning to "Beware those who are closest to you". He later, during the attack on the Animal Asylum by the "Fright Hound", escapes and Mr. E sends Velma a text message telling the gang to follow him. It is later revealed by Mayor Fred Jones, Sr. in the episode "All Fear the Freak", that he and Professor Pericles struck a deal to search for the Planispheric Disc together, and helped him to chase the original Mystery Incorporated out of Crystal Cove but Jones, Sr. betrayed Professor Pericles and drugged him to render him unconscious and had Professor Pericles locked up. This also explains Mr. E's statement in the episode "Menace of the Manticore", about how Scooby is a more "trustworthy companion" than Professor Pericles was to him. Professor Pericles is also behind two of the mysteries in Crystal Cove, as he aided Amanda Smythe in the episode "Where Walks Aphrodite", where he uses the events to obtain objects he needed to help him retrieve what he needs for his quest for the Conquistador treasure. He is the also the Shadowy Figure in the episode "A Haunting in Crystal Cove", where he hacks Fred's laptop to "scare" the location of Fred Jones, Sr.'s piece of the Planispheric Disc out of him, which he succeeds in doing and he takes off with it. At the end of the first season, Pericles has two pieces of the disc and Scooby vows to get him once he reunites the broken-up Mystery Incorporated. In the second season of Mystery Incorporated, Professor Pericles does not return until "The Hodag of Horror", where he has an unknown proposition for the original members of Mystery Incorporated which involves the new Mystery Incorporated since they have now retrieved two pieces of the Planispheric Disc. During "The Gathering Gloom" Professor Pericles admits to trying to reunite the original Mystery Incorporated only to be rejected by them and turns to Mr. E in hopes that, due to their strong bond in the past, he will help him. Mr. E initially refused, citing Pericles's betrayal of him and the Original Mystery Incorporated. By the end of the episode, however, Mr. E does join forces with Pericles. The two manage to recruit Brad Chiles and Judy Reeves, Fred's real parents, to their cause. Pericles becomes more depraved as the series draws to its close as he works to free his "master", the Evil Entity, in hopes of becoming all-powerful in exchange for releasing the Entity. Pericles succeeds in freeing the Entity when Nibiru comes, and volunteers to serve as the Entity's physical host. However, Pericles learns to his horror too late that he has to die for the Entity to take over. Pericles' body is disfigured and remolded to serve as the Evil Entity's form until its defeat. In the alternate universe created by the gang after destroying the Evil Entity, he is shown to be the mascot for Ricky and Cassidy's environmentally-friendly company, Creationex. He is also shown without his scar and his personality has changed into a happy and kind bird.

Brad Chiles and Judy Reeves[edit]

Bradley "Brad" Chiles and his wife Judy Reeves (Brad Chiles is voiced by Tim Matheson and his younger self is voiced by Nolan North, Judy Reeves is voiced by Tia Carrere and her younger self is voiced by Kari Wahlgren) are members of the original Mystery Incorporated and the real parents of Fredrick Jones, Jr. When Mayor Fred Jones, Sr. abducts Fred to keep Brad and Judy from returning to Crystal Cove, the two continue to live their lives under secret identities as the famous Sternum and Sternum, a couple who invent traps and help mystery solvers. Upon Mayor Jones' arrest, the two return to Crystal Cove apparently to reunite with Fred, but are really after the Conquistador treasure and have no care or concern for their son. They also have a dog named Nova, whom Scooby is instantly smitten with. They are Fred and Daphne's old Mystery Incorporated counterparts, respectively. They first appear in the episode "The Hodag of Horror" but their younger selves are occasionally seen throughout the first season. Brad's younger self sports a sports jacket and has freckles on his face but has the same face and body outline of Fred, his older self however does not have freckles and he has white hair. Judy's younger self is shown to have long blonde hair and wearing a long dress, where as her present day self sports short blond hair and a rich look about her. The two eventually re-team up with Mr. E and Professor Pericles to help the two obtain the three pieces of the Planispheric Disc from the gang, as well as get their hands on the cursed Conquistador treasure. In "Wrath of the Krampus", Fred makes it clear that he had known that they were only after the pieces of the disc and appeared hurt by their betrayal. Fred even makes it clear that he preferred Fred Jones, Sr. over them. Upon the revealing of their betrayal, the gang takes Nova with them with Scooby stating that Brad and Judy "do not deserve" her. In the episode "The Man in the Mirror", Professor Pericles does plastic surgery on Brad and Judy to have Brad look identical to their son and Judy as an older version of Daphne. They remain like this for the remaining episodes until the alternate universe is created. At the end of the second season, in the alternate universe created by the gang after destroying the Evil Entity, Brad and Judy have been returned to their original look when they returned to Crystal Cove after Mayor Jones is arrested, prior to their plastic surgery, and are no longer trap experts and are instead obstetricians.
