    Shaggy Rogers (Shaggy & Scooby-Doo Get a Clue!; Be Cool, Scooby-Doo!)

    Be Cool, Scooby-Doo!

    Norville "Shaggy" Rogers is a fictional character in the Scooby-Doo franchise, He is the owner and best friend of Scooby-Doo. He's normally a likable character in the franchise. He is voiced by Matthew Lillard in "Be Cool Scooby-Doo!" and Scott Menville in "Shaggy & Scooby-Doo Get a Clue!".

    Unfortunately, in Shaggy & Scooby-Doo Get a Clue!, and Be Cool, Scooby Doo!, Shaggy was badly flanderized and became horrendously out of character.

    "Zoinks!" Qualities

    Shaggy and Scooby-Doo Get A Clue!

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

    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), 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 Scooby) 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, he doesn’t eat the Scooby Snacks with Scooby. Only Scooby does it because the snacks are portrayed as generic power-ups for Scooby, for some unknown and weird reason.
      • 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 Shaggy at all, thus he mostly 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.
    6. His humor and jokes have become 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 Scooby became rich.
    9. He can feel like a bizarre character and not even like a mystery character.
    10. He has a poor and annoying voice, lacking the genuine charm the character's voice normally has (from Casey Kasem, Matthew Lillard, Scott Innes, and Billy West, who voice him a lot better), and it doesn't help that Scott Menville voices him, and he's normally a great voice actor, but his voice as Shaggy is poor, bad, wimpy, and sounds way too high-pitched and squeaky for the character.

    Be Cool, Scooby-Doo!

    1. His redesign is awful and looks little to nothing like their original selves. They instead look 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 coward, but silly, helpful, and likable character into an even dumber person and a worshiper of food.
      • He and Scooby even disobeyed Velma not to continue eating a food trap in one episode.
    3. Like Scooby and other flanderized comic reliefs, his humor has become mainly unfunny, pathetic, and very cruel.
    4. He has many laughably bad quotes, such as "We're useless when it comes to mysteries anyway."

    Good Qualities

    Shaggy and Scooby-Doo Get A Clue!

    1. He still has some genuinely funny moments.
    2. It is nice to see an incarnation of the series solely focused on both him and Scooby, even if it wasn't executed very well.
    3. He can still be tolerable/likable sometimes.

    Be Cool, Scooby-Doo!

    1. Despite the flanderization, his personality is also barely even different from his usual self.
      • Also, at least he also isn't as badly flanderized as his horrendous interpretation from Shaggy & Scooby-Doo Get a Clue.
    2. He, along with Scooby-Doo, are the most tolerable of the Be Cool, Scooby-Doo cast.
    3. He also still has some genuinely funny moments.
    4. Matthew Lillard still does a very great job voicing him.
