Scoobert[1] Dooby[2][1] Doo, otherwise known as Scooby-Doo, is a Great Dane belonging to Shaggy Rogers and the mascot of Mystery Inc.

Physical appearance

Scooby-Doo is a brown Great Dane with distinctive black spots. He wears a teal collar around his neck with yellow and teal tag with his initials on it.


Scooby-Doo shares common personality traits with his owner, including cowardice and an immense appetite. He cares very much about his friends and would do anything to protect them. When the gang was fell apart after learning the truth behind Fred Jones, Sr. he promised that he would get everyone back together and stop Professor Pericles. Initially he was jealous of Velma due to her trying to start a relationship between her and Shaggy. But after Shaggy broke the relationship between him and Velma, he started to feel sorry for her and tries various ways to make amends with her. For example, Scooby went out of his way to help Velma to solve the Graveyard Ghoul mystery.[3] After falling in love with Brad and Judy's dog Nova, he begins to spend more time with her, which interestingly puts Scooby in Shaggy's position and Shaggy in Scooby's position, when Shaggy was dating Velma. While he tends to be very scared, he also can be very brave when defending his friends.

Skills and abilities

He speaks fluent English except he tends to pronounce words as if they started with 'R'. The reason he can talk is because he is a descendant of the Anunnaki.[citation needed] this is also the reason he has a far greater lifespan and intelligence than other dogs and animals in general.

He is able to use his paws like hands. Unlike most dogs, his claws are retractable. He can pick certain locks with his claws.

He can consume massive amounts of food without chewing or even breathing.


Early life

As stated by Shaggy in "Dark Night of the Hunters", Scooby has been friends with his owner since he was a puppy.

On one of their cases, Scooby helped capture the Creeper, who was the bank manager, Deacon Carlswell, which later on, gave Alice May her cover for why she pretended to be a ghost girl.[4]

Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated

Season one

When the gang suspected Franklin Fruitmeir of being the Slime Mutant's could inspect the place after hours they forced Scooby and Shaggy to work uncover as waitresses at his dessert restaurant so they could inspect the place after hours.[5]

Scooby wasn't allowed in the Drowsy Gator Hotel and had to sleep in the Mystery Machine during which he was the first to see the Creeping Creatures.[6]

Scooby helped the gang stop the Ghost Truck's crystal doorknob raid.[7]

Scooby enjoyed the clams at Skipper Shelton's Clam Cabin, and dealt with a Man-Crab.[8]

Scooby and Shaggy were disguised as children and used as bait to capture Que Horrifico, who 'transformed' minors to do her bidding. Once the case was solved, the gang danced to Dr. Luis de Potrillo's flute (at K-Ghoul), giggling at Shaggy dancing with Velma, ignorant of the romantic relationship between the two.[9]

Scooby enjoyed watching Vincent Van Ghoul movies until he found out that Shaggy bailed on him to go to the prom with Velma.[4]

Scooby was still mad at Shaggy and made a new 'friend' named Harry, but in the end, he forgave Shaggy.[10]

While at the Royal Knights Faire he had to save Shaggy from a vicious Gnome.[11]

Scooby became angry when he found Shaggy had been dating Velma behind his back, and wanted Shaggy to decide who he would rather be with the most.[12]

He was suspected of being the Fright Hound and sent to an animal asylum after he took the blame for its violent attack on the Mystery Tour bus. After the asylum was destroyed (largely due to Scooby), Shaggy broke up with Velma because of how much he still cared for Scooby.[13]

Things still weren't easy after their break up, meaning the boys & girls split up to search for clues involving the Vampire.[14]

Scooby visited Darrow University with Shaggy for the campus burgers. Another mystery also took place there involving Char Gar Gothakon, and while searching for clues, he apologized to Velma after realizing how much she cared for Shaggy, and being chosen over her.[15]

Scooby still tried to make amends with Velma, even offering her Nature Slivers, but she wasn't interested.[16]

Scooby fell very sick and he couldn't go to the Mystery Solvers Club State Finals. He took Velma's remark about him being the gang mascot to heart during his fever induced dream.

When he 'woke' up he didn't sneeze, he checked his temperature and he was cured and ready to go the State Finals.

Scooby met Jabberjaw, Speed Buggy, Captain Caveman, and the Funky Phantom. However, a flying fiery skeleton named Lord Infernicus appeared and he captured everyone except for the sidekicks. Scooby went to the hallway and found crumbs from cages belonging to guinea pigs, including four that looked like Shaggy, Velma, Daphne, and Fred. Scooby asked if the Shaggy guinea pig would do it for a Scooby Snack, but the guinea pig just threw it at Scooby's nose.

Funky Phantom left, but Scooby said tried to stop because they were missing something. Lord Infernicus appeared and told Scooby that time was running out. Angel and Principal Quinlan were riding on Speed Buggy and they destroyed the signal and Infernicus appeared again and attacked them. Scooby discovered that a boat from the dock was leaving for Africa. Scooby and the sidekicks had solved the mystery and Scooby unmasked Lord Infernicus, revealing him to be Funky Phantom. Scooby asked why would Funky cause trouble. Funky was sick of being a sidekick and he wasn't a real ghost and his real name was Jonathan Wellington Muddlemore. The gang he was from had found him inside a clock in a haunted house and found a clock and thought Jonathan was a ghost since he could fly and go through walls. Jonathan wanted to be the headline and leader and have his own sidekicks. He learned about the Lord Infernicus who also got ditched so Jonathan worked shopped and created him. Funky would be shown with Infernicus by making using a hologram to make himself appear and fly. A little smoke, fireworks, and a skeleton puppet would work. He even abducted his own cat, Boo. He would later ship everyone to Africa, and used replica outffits on the guinea pigs, just to throw Scooby and the sidekicks off track. According to him, it was perfect and genuis, until Scooby started to act like a hero instead of a sidekick

After he woke up for real, he was greeted by the chairman of the State Finals who was kind enough to postpone until he got better because he was seen as a true member of the team, but he was only terrified by the sight of the chairman because he resembled Jonathan Wellington Muddlemore (Funky Phantom) the identity of Lord Infernicus Scooby's dream.[17]

Scooby and Velma were tied up to a cliffside by the Shadowy Orc. Velma could refuse to help the Orc, let Scooby die so she could get Shaggy back. But even though Scooby stole her boyfriend, she would never let anyone hurt him. When Velma almost fell off and died, Scooby saved her.[18]

As animals were immune to Aphrodite's love spell, he teamed up Professor Pericles to save Crystal Cove. However, when the case was solved, Ed Machine reveals that Pericles set the whole mystery up, and he tricked Scooby into helping him gather what he was really after. Ed also reveals that Pericles is after the cursed treasure that's been left by the founders of the town, and if he finds it, it could mean the end of Crystal Cove.[19]

Danny Darrow trapped the gang in his underground mansion (beneath Darrow University) when they searched there for a piece of the Planispheric Disk. While there, Danny mistook Scooby for Pericles.[20]

Scooby was initially sad when Shaggy fell in love with Mai Le (Velma even 'sympathized' with him). But eventually got over it and even spoke for him when Shaggy tried to ask her out on a date.[21]

He and Shaggy were invited to Vincent Van Ghoul's house for dinner. During their stay they were frightened by the Mutant Bee, Dr. Phobos, and Professor Jantzen, and Nightfright.[22]

He helped Amy Cavenaugh and Skipper Shelton rescue the former's husband and the latter's brother from the Fish Freaks.[23]

He helped the gang stop a Manticore.[24]

He tried to keep Rick Spartan safe from the Headless Creature.[25]

He helped Mayor Jones by unmasking the Shadowy Figure who was Pericles, but he still escaped with the disk piece.[26]

He and the gang failed to stop Piranha-Goat and two bank robbers from Dead Justice's ghost.[27]

He met H.P. Hatecraft, again, to help with the Obliteratix problem. And found out that Angel Dynamite was Cassidy Williams.[28]

Unmasking the Freak of Crystal Cove revealed some secrets of the town: Fred Jones, Sr. wasn't Fred's real dad and his real parents were Brad Chiles and Judy Reeves (two members of the original Mystery Inc.). The strain broke up the gang. Shaggy's parents also sent him away because of the constant dangers he got himself into, leaving Scooby to be sent of to a farm. Furious with Pericles' machinations, Scooby vows to reassemble Mystery Inc. and stop the malevolent parrot once and for all.[29]

Season two

Scooby was indeed sent to the farm by Shaggy's parents, which turned out to be more like a prison camp, frequently trying to escape only to be sent to "the hole" as punishment. Eventually he managed to make a final attempt escape and was rescued by the new mayor, Janet Nettles, who was there to help him get the gang back together.[30]

Without Daphne and needing a fifth member, Velma suggested the prison-released Hot Dog Water who offered "homemade prison" candy to Scooby and Shaggy. They accepted her into the group, and Scooby told her he liked the way she smelled (due to the hotdog water she used). With a new member, they stopped Baba Yaga.[31]

Scooby and the gang then went to save Daphne from Crybaby Clown who is gaged on an airplane. He and Shaggy tried to free Daphne only to be stopped by Crybaby Clown. When the gang unmasked Crybaby Clown and found out that is was Baylor Hotner, Daphne was invited back to the gang, which she accepted. Scooby then gave her a loving hug and the rest of the gang joined in. (The Night the Clown Cried II - Tears of Doom!)

Scooby-Doo! Team-Up

Insert details here.



  • While Scooby still likes Scooby Snacks, he's also fond of clams as well.
  • Unlike his other incarnations, he speaks in complete sentences and has more dialogue, which makes him even harder to understand; at least to some of the characters.
  • Scooby cares a lot about protecting Nova and his friends.
  • Unlike the mascots of the past mystery teams, Scooby is pure of heart, so he didn't turn evil and betray his friends, and was able to help them defeat the Evil Entity, instead.
  • Scooby has tattooed a map of Crystal Cove on his tongue, which highlights the location of all the Pizzerias in the town.
