NickName: Shaggy
Phrase: "ZOINKS!", "Like, no way man!", "Gang Way!", "Scoob! old friend, old buddy, old pal!"
Description: Shaggy is Scooby's owner and best friend. He's lanky, has a goatee, typically wears a green shirt with brown bell-bottoms, and has a huge appetite. Shaggy is a coward, though he and Scooby are usually the bait for the villain. Shaggy and Scooby usually get caught in the traps that Fred sets, along with the villain. When the gang splits up, Shaggy gets paired with Scooby, and occasionally Velma. His ventriloquism and disguise skills frequently come in handy.

Is Shaggy really a vegetarian?
"From the series inception in 1968, and at least through 1982 when Ruby-Spears produced the Scooby series for ABC that year, Shaggy was not a vegetarian. Joe and Ken always had he and Scooby being ravenous chow hounds who'd eat anything in sight....especially hot dogs, chicken, etc. Some time after that, Kasey apparently became a vegetarian and insisted his Shaggy character be the same. H-B (or Warner's) obviously went along with it." - according to Craig King, webmaster of the Ruby-Spears Productions website, 4/13/2007. It has not been confirmed whether Casey Kasem walked out on the role of Shaggy in 1995 when he was asked to voice Shaggy for a Burger King commercial.
