Background

He is a cowardly slacker more interested in eating than solving mysteries, giving rise to an Urban Legend suggesting that Shaggy is a closet marijuana smoker. Shaggy is the second most-popular character in the franchise after Scooby himself, and is the only other Scooby-Doo character to appear in all iterations of the franchise. The character’s given name was not revealed until an early episode of A Pup Named Scooby-Doo. He stands 6 feet 3 inches.

Shaggy’s distinct personality is evident in his late-’60’s-stylee speech pattern — punctuating his sentences with the word “like”, and his appearance—he is lanky, with shaggy dirty blonde hair and a rough goatee (no mustache, though), typically sporting a chartreuse-green T-shirt and brown bell bottoms. In The 13 Ghosts of Scooby Doo and early direct-to-video movies, he wore a red T-shirt and blue bell bottoms.

In terms of his Specialities, the Culinary arts skill comes from his ability to mix different foods into large sandwiches and other creations; years of running from ghostly menaces has given him a nice Running ability; Stealth comes from his ability to find hiding places when danger is near; and his Performance comes from the many times that he and Scooby have pretended to be other people in order to fool their enemies.

  1. One of my favorite scenes in “Looney Tunes: Back In Action” is when a highly pissed off Shaggy confronts Matthew Lillard about the way Lillard played Shaggy in the live action Scooby Doo movies.
