    Scooby-Doo (S&SDGAC & Be Cool, Scooby-Doo!)

    Scooby-Doo (S&SDGAC & Be Cool, Scooby-Doo!)
    Regular Scooby wasn't this dumb and obsessed with food. While Scooby, and Shaggy, are not as bad as their friends, they're not much better either. This is one Scooby-Doo that is not cool, but not that bad.
    Gender: Male
    Type: The not-so-cool side of Scooby-Doo
    Species: Dog
    Portrayed by: Frank Welker
    Status: Alive
    Media of origin: Be Cool, Scooby-Doo
    Shaggy and Scoody Doo Get A Clue!

    Scoobert "Scooby" Dooby Doo is the eponymous character and protagonist of the animated television franchise, created in 1969 by the American animation company Hanna-Barbera. 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. Scooby often speaks in a rhotacized way, substituting the first letters of many words with the letter 'r'. His catchphrase is "Scooby-Dooby-Doo!". He is voiced by Frank Welker. He's normally a very lovable character in the franchise, being iconic. Unfortunately, in Be Cool, Scooby-Doo! and "Shaggy and Scooby-Doo Get a Clue!", this Scooby was badly flanderized, but, along with Shaggy, not as bad as the others.

    Not Cool Qualities

    NOTE: This article only applies to the character as depicted in Be Cool, Scooby-Doo! and Shaggy and Scooby-Doo Get a Clue!


    1. He is badly flanderized.

    Shaggy and Scooby-Doo Get A Clue!

    1. In this show, he is horrendously out of character when compared to his previous incarnations of the series (perhaps even more so than his Be Cool, Scooby-Doo counterpart), as he went from a cowardly, helpful, likable, energetic and funny comic relief into an extremely lazy, unlikeable and generically unfunny comic relief for no real reason.
    2. He is part of the show’s misleading title, as he (and Shaggy) do not get a clue whatsoever in the show.
    3. His laziness has become obnoxious, annoying, and troublesome, which is unlike his usual self, in which he's only occasionally lazy.
    4. He contributed to the show’s poor grasp of source material:
      • In this show, the Scooby Snacks are portrayed as generic super power-ups for him, rather than standard food to get him and Shaggy up and running.
      • He also contributed to the show's more lighthearted tone when compared to the spooky atmosphere that previous (and later) incarnations had (and yes, that includes Be Cool, Scooby-Doo!), which does not fit Scooby-Doo at all, thus he doesn't even feel like a Scooby-Doo character and feels more like a generic kids cartoon character released in the 2000s.
    5. About the art style, his character design looks weird and a little uncanny. It's interesting to note that he's supposed to represent his live-action appearance from the live-action Scooby-Doo movies. It also doesn't have a sclera on his eyes, unlike his other designs in the Scooby-Doo franchise.
    6. His humor and jokes have become mostly very poor, even for Scooby-Doo standards, only relying on fart jokes and toilet humor.
    7. He's part of the extremely confusing intro. It shows him running out of nowhere back and forth in silhouettes, and he's also doing weird dances (with him coming off as either typing in mid-air or doing air piano, as Mr. Enter pointed out in one of his videos).
    8. He's part of the stupid premise, as there is no way he and Shaggy became rich.
    9. He can feel like a bizarre character and not even like a mystery character.

    Be Cool, Scooby-Doo!

    1. His redesign, while better than the human characters' designs and besides his signature brown color, dog-mouth, and SD collar, hardly looks anything like his original counterpart, and instead looks more like Warner Bros. Animation's bad attempt to imitate Seth MacFarlane's art style like Family Guy, American Dad!, The Cleveland Show or Brickleberry art style.
      • Speaking of his redesign, it is unfitting in the Scooby-Doo franchise, as it fits more into an adult cartoon or parody.
    2. He was badly flanderized from a cowardly, but funny, helpful, and likable dog into an even dumber dog and a worshiper of food.
      • He even disobeyed Velma not to continue eating a food trap in one episode.
    3. Like Shaggy and other flanderized comic reliefs, his humor has become more unfunny, pathetic, and very cruel.
    4. He has many laughably bad quotes, such as "Stare at us suspiciously."

    Cool Qualities

    Shaggy and Scooby-Doo Get a Clue!

    1. Frank Welker still does a very great job voicing him.
    2. He still has some genuinely funny moments.
    3. It is nice to see an incarnation of the series solely focused on both him and Shaggy, even if it wasn't executed very well.
    4. He can still be tolerable/likable sometimes.
    5. Some of his Scooby Snack transformations look admittedly cool.

    Be Cool, Scooby-Doo!

    1. Despite the flanderization, his personality is barely even different from his usual self.
      • Also, at least he isn't as badly flanderized as his horrendous interpretation from Shaggy & Scooby-Doo Get a Clue.
      • Despite his design being odd to look at, it is much better than the human characters' designs and it's passable at best.
    2. He, along with Shaggy, is the most tolerable of the Be Cool, Scooby-Doo cast.
    3. He still has some genuinely funny moments.
    4. Frank Welker also still does a very great job voicing him.


    • A lot of fans appreciated Scooby-Doo in Scooby-Doo and Guess Who? because the producers made him smarter to go back to being normal, funny, and dumb, and removed his worship food traits to make him a more likable character.
