Skipper Shelton runs the Clam Cabin at Crystal Cove's beach.

Physical appearance

Skipper is a middle-aged Caucasian male, with a gray beard. He has a missing nose that was stolen by a clam.[1]


He nicknames Scooby-Doo, "Wolfie", when he makes an inside joke and expects Scooby to understand, which he never does.[1][2]


Early life

A clam took his nose.[1] Whenever the town wanted to do something on the beach, they expected the Clam Cabin to be moved.[1]

Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated

Season one

The gang couldn't get inside the Clam Cabin because the crystal doorknob had been stolen, also locking Skipper inside.[3]

The gang found a locker spilling sand out with his name on it, implicating him to be the Man-Crab. After the Man-Crab was caught it was discovered to be Bud Shelton who had chosen to frame the Skipper.[1]

Skipper had a Clam Cabin booth set up at the Royal Knights Faire, selling clam cotton candy.[4]

The Skipper was kidnapped by the Fish Freaks to work on their illegal oil-drilling scheme.[2]

Season two

He saved the gang from a robot, by striking it with his spear.[5]



  • Skipper Shelton's story of losing his nose to a sea creature (and having a vendetta against it) is similar to Captain Squint (on the Jumanji animated TV series) who lost his nose to a sea monster. Both are parodies of Captain Ahab and Moby Dick.
  • The Skipper has five siblings: a sardiner, a shrimper, a manta-rayer, a kelper, and a sea-dragoner (whom he said he didn't talk about, for some yet unknown reason).[2]
  • According to Tony Cervone, Skipper Shelton has his nose in the new timeline.[6]
