Shaggy & Scooby-Doo Get a Clue! is a spin-off of the Scooby-Doo franchise. It ran from 2006 to 2008.

Plot

Shaggy and Scooby-Doo become rich and solve various crimes around the world with the help of inherited cash and inventions from Shaggy's missing uncle.

Why It Sucks

  1. Misleading title: Shaggy and Scooby DO NOT get a clue in the show.
  2. Poor grasp of the original source material:
    • There are no monsters or ghosts in this show only Dr Phineas Phibes, even though previous shows were always about the Mystery Inc. gang catching monsters.
    • The Scooby Snacks are portrayed like generic super power ups for Scooby-Doo, rather than standard food to get the duo up and running.
  3. Bland Flash animation with an even more bland art style with pale, washed-out colors.
  4. Few characters from the original series appear. Fred, Velma, and Daphne, particularly, are only seen in one episode and aren't seen again, which were wasted potential.
  5. Annoying and below average soundtrack that sounds like stock rock music.
  6. The humor and jokes are very poor for Scooby-Doo standards, only relying on fart jokes and toilet humor.
  7. The designs of Shaggy and Scooby and the rest of the characters look really weird and a little uncanny. It's interesting to note that they're supposed to represent their live-action appearance from the live-action Scooby-Doo movies.
  8. Horrible, loud, and plain obnoxious theme song that rips off "One Fine Day" by The Offspring.
    • Its "theme song" has repetitive and quite weird lyrics, one infamous example is: "I’M GONNA SING THIS SONG ALL DAY LONG!". And the singers almost sounds like they're getting progressively angrier while singing it as if they were annoyed of what they were singing.
      • Speaking of which, the theme song is "so bad, it's good", that it spawned memes.
  9. Speaking of the theme song, the intro is extremely confusing. It shows everyone running out of nowhere back-and-fourth in silhouettes, Shaggy and Scooby doing weird dances (one them coming off as either they’re typing in mid-air or they’re doing air piano), the title of the show randomly sliding everywhere, and Dr. Phineus Phibes looks like he's doing a Hitler salute.
  10. The villains have stereotypes very similar to North Koreans, which is somewhat xenophobic, but none of them aren't North Koreans, really.
  11. While the voice acting is decent and he is an otherwise good voice actor himself, Scott Menville actually does a poor job voicing Shaggy, lacking the genuine charm that Casey Kasem or Matthew Lillard bring to the character, and just comes off as annoying (Kasem himself instead voices Uncle Albert).

The Only Redeeming Qualities

  1. Decent voice acting (though, as mentioned above, except for Scott Menville as Shaggy).
  2. There are funny moments still here.
