Norville "Shaggy" Rogers is a fictional character and a protagonist of the American animated television series Scooby-Doo, about the adventures of four crime-solving teenagers and Shaggy's pet Great Dane, Scooby-Doo. Shaggy is a cowardly slacker more interested in eating than solving mysteries. He is the only Scooby-Doo character (besides Scooby) to appear in all iterations of the franchise. He is given the name (or nickname) "Sammy" in all French dubs of the animated movies.

[edit] CharacterEdit

Shaggy's speech pattern includes punctuating his sentences with the word "like", and his appearance—he is lanky, with shaggy brown hair and a rough goatee (no moustache, though), and typically wears a green T-shirt and brown bell bottoms.

Both Shaggy and Scooby-Doo are readily bribed with Scooby Snacks due to their nearly insatiable appetites, and have tendencies toward goofing off and cowardice. They justify their constant hunger by saying, "Being in a constant state of terror makes us constantly hungry!".
