Scooby-Doo Caracters: Scooby-Doo
Scooby-Doo's PersonalityScooby-Doo eats a sandwich.Scooby-Doo and Shaggy share several personality traits, including tremendous appetites and tendencies toward cowardice. Due to their said cowardice, Scooby-Doo, as well as Shaggy, would often have to be bribed by their cohorts (Velma, Daphne and Fred) to go after the costumed villains with "Scooby Snacks," a biscuit-like dog treat or cookie snack, although sometimes, Scooby Snacks won't work on Shaggy, so he may get "Shaggy Snacks". Within the universe of the show, Scooby-Doo was born on the Knittingham Puppy Farm (owned by Mrs. Knittingham).
Scooby has some difficulty with pronunciation, and tends to pronounce most words as if they begin with an "R". His catch phrase, usually howled at the end of every episode, is "Scooby-Dooby-Doo!"
Scooby-Doo's Voice cast
Don Messick originated the character's voice patterns, and provided Scooby's voice in every Scooby-Doo production from 1969 until 1996, when Messick retired. Scott Innes voiced Scooby-Doo in four late 1990s/early 2000s direct-to-video films, and Frank Welker (also the voice of Fred) took over beginning with What's New, Scooby-Doo? in 2002 and other spinoffs. Because of this, Scooby's voice sounded very similar to Brain from the Inspector Gadget animated series (Brain was also voiced by Frank Welker). Neil Fanning provided the voice of the computer-generated Scooby present in the two Warner Bros. live-action feature films.
Don Messick (1969-1997, till death)
Over the course of Scooby-Doo's various spinoffs, various relatives of Scooby were introduced:
Scrappy-Doo: Scooby's young nephew (and son of Scooby's sister
Ruby-Doo), Scrappy is the most noteworthy of Scooby's relatives.
Scrappy became a recurring character in the Scooby-Doo series
beginning in 1979, and was noted for being quite headstrong and
always wanting to face off in a fight against the various villains
(unlike his uncle). Scooby and Shaggy were present at Scrappy's
birth. In the first live-action movie, he was portrayed in a
negative light, in response to the public dislike toward his
character. Likewise, recent video re-releases of Scooby-Doo Meets
the Boo Brothers, Scooby-Doo and the Ghoul School, and Scooby-Doo
and the Reluctant Werewolf omitted Scrappy from all promotional
material (including the covers), though his part was not cut
from any of the films themselves.
