Norville "Shaggy" Rogers is a fictional character in the Scooby-Doo franchise. He is a cowardly slacker and the long-time best friend of his equally cowardly Great Dane, Scooby-Doo. Like Scooby-Doo, Shaggy is more interested in eating food than solving mysteries.

Why He Rocks

  1. He’s just as likable and unforgettable as his pet dog/best friend, Scooby-Doo.
  2. He has many memorable catchphrases and lines of dialogue, such as ”Zoinks!” or “Scooby-Doo, where are you?!”.
  3. Much like Scooby, he shares the same funny running gag of endlessly eating food and Scooby Snacks whenever they’re solving a mystery.
  4. Many of the actors throughout the years do an amazing job at portraying/voicing the character, especially Casey Kasem and Matthew Lillard (two of Shaggy’s most well-known portrayers).
  5. He sometimes steals the show with his and Scooby’s failing attempts into getting out of a mystery which comes off as super hilarious.
  6. Him and Scooby’s cowardly demeanor can really get a good amount of laughs out of the viewers, which is one of the most memorable things about the Scooby-Doo franchise.
  7. He is a great owner/best friend to Scooby.
  8. There are times on rare occasions where Scooby and Shaggy’s behavior can actually help the others solve the mystery and catch the bad guy.
  9. He can sometimes be generous with his food, like when he first meets Scooby on the beach when they were younger and he shared his sandwich with him.
