Voice Compare » Scooby-Doo » Shaggy Rogers

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Shaggy Rogers with sound clips and images.
Shaggy Rogers is the main human protagonist in the Scooby-Doo Franchise. He is best friends with his pet Great Dane, Scooby-Doo. Tall and lanky in appearance, Shaggy scares very easily and usually wants nothing to do with attempting to solve the different mysteries the gang find themselves getting into. He has an enormous appetite that is seems to be never satisfied. His trademark line is 'Zoinks' and he usually refers to Scooby-Doo as 'Scoob'. He is usually, along with Scoob, portrayed as the 'comic relief' for the shows. Shaggy has been entertaining audiences for more than 40 years. Casey Kasem voiced him for all television series from 1970-2009 except for when Scott Menville took the role for the show "Shaggy & Scooby-Doo: Get a Clue!" When Casey Kasem retired in 2009 Matthew Lillard inherited the role. As we all know there have been dozens of direct-to-vhs or dvd movies based on the Scooby franchise. For these movies both Billy West and Scott Innes have voiced the forever hungry and scared Shaggy Rogers.

Casey Kasem is the best Shaggy Rogers, and it was his definitive role in my book: his voice perfectly matched the character, his acting was superb and he was just hilarious in the role as well as enjoyable throughout his run: R.I.P.

Honestly, my second favorite is Scott Innes: he does a pretty good imitation of Casey Kasem while also acting really well.

Matthew Lillard...honestly, I don't like his voice for Shaggy: I loved him in the live action movies, but here, it doesn't seem to fit as well...he's a little flat in pitch for me and dull sounding, though he does a decent job.

Billy West is okay, but sounds a little off to me compared to the other three.

Scott Menville is clearly the worst here and the voice doesn't fit the character at all.

For me only Casey Kasem & Matthew Lillard. But even though we lost the original Shaggy Rogers, It's a huge tragedy that something like that would be a hit to the nuts of my childhood. R.I.P Casey Kasem!.

1-:Casey Kasem: This is his defining role, and he nailed Shaggy's personality, defining what the character's voice should sound like.
2-:Mathew Lillard: You can tell he sounds slightly younger, but he's definitely the most worthy successor to Casey. Best casting in the live action films, hands down, and it reflects well enough in animated form :)
3-: Billy West: Almost as good, if not better than Matt. I have a hard time placing him. His voice for the character is slightly inconsistent, but if he had been given another chance after Zombie Island, I think he would of more naturally grew into it. Overall, a satisfying performance that I have little to no qualms with, as the first successor to Casey.
4-: Scott Innes: I never had a problem with how he delivered his lines, he got the mannerisms and speaking tone down fine. I just don't think his voice is really a good fit, it's too scratchy and deep to work.
5-: Scott Menville: It's fine if you want to make the role sound more unique this time around, and I'm sure direction plays a part in it, but did Shaggy really have to sound so high pitched and grating in this show?

Really, Kasem needs to be on this list twice, because his second, 21st century tenure as Shaggy was not good. His age was clearly going against him, and the character sounded tired and forced. Pre-90s Kasem will always be the best, but I've developed a soft spot for West's portrayal in recent years. It's far superior to Innes', but I know I'm in a minority.

Guys, when you think (and listen) about it, Kasem and his voice acting imitators, they all have a very southern take on the character, which I find enjoyable, but what I find even more enjoyable and pleasing to the ear is Matthew Lillard's shaggy!!! It suits the goofball character! I know Casey Kasem's the original and he created the voice and all, but that's not the point of the Voice Compare, the point is the best voice and sound.

I'm torn. But not between who you'd think. I'm torn between Billy West and Scott Innes. Casey is classic, but I remember Innes' and West's takes on the character fondly. Call it nostalgia or whatever, but they're takes just ooze Shaggy's personality. (Kinda weird sentence) I suppose I'll go with Innes.

Casey is the best 4ever & i'm not happy that retired from voice acting but I guess it was up 2 him.

Scott I did well though I wish he could have voiced Shaggy for longer but Casey came back when he left which was even better.

Matthew came back from the films which is normally a good sign. It is also noted that he will continue 2 voice Shaggy for a while.

Billy I quite liked only got 2 voice Shaggy once but I hope he might come back some day.

Scott M I just can't stand his voice (Sorry Scott).

Of course Casey Kasem is the classic and best, and Scott Innes would have to be my second favorite--he nails the mannerisms that Casey gave Shaggy like it's nothing. I really wanted to comment most on Billy West's voice here, though. It's been a while since I last watched a Scooby production with Billy West as Shaggy, but if the clip here is good enough to go by, he seems to slip into his Fry voice really easily.

Shaggy was the most unique set of voice actors who portrayed him, all that fit the role in some special way.

If I was to make an order, it would be:

I guess if I had to pick an order it would be:

1) Casey Kasem - As the originating voice actor, Casey will always be the definitive Shaggy. His voice for the character is unique, and really captured Shaggy's comedic and beatnik personality.

2) Scott Innes - An absolute astounding substitute for Kasem. He captured everything about the character that made him great and recognizable.

3) Matthew Lillard - It's interesting seeing a live-action portrayer of a character return to voice the animated counterpart. Lillard suits the realistic Shaggy, while still interpreting a younger, more teenage Shaggy perfectly.

4) Billy West - Although he wasn't a perfect match, he still managed to get into character and provide a suitable voice.

5) Scott Menville - Just simply no. He sounded way too forced and completely out of character. He didn't capture any former personality aspect of Shaggy like the other voice actors did.

I just watched Scooby Doo Where are You today and I have read all the comments. Everyone says that Casey Kasem is the best because he was the original voice but Adam West was the original Batman voice and yet every says that Kevin Conroy does the best Batman voice. The fact that Casey Kasem came up with Shaggy having that type of tone  is brilliant, it makes Shaggy's voice unique, but to be honest his voice doesn't fit the character as well as Matthew Lillard. Shaggy in the show Scooby Doo Where are You or any other Scooby Doo show that had Casey Kasem as Shaggy never made me laugh even when I watched it as a child I never laughed, he was amusing but never did I laugh. I never really did take a interest in Scooby until I watched the movie Scooby Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed. I only enjoyed that movie because of Shaggy, Shaggy was Hilarious, I watched that movie over and over again, it never got old. Matthew Lillard brings life to the character, his voice suits the character very well because out of all of them his voice sounds more like a teenagers voice, and that's what Shaggy is. Yes Casey Kasem was the original voice but so what, what if shaggy sounded like Scooby Doo originally, would that mean that he is the right voice because he was the original voice? It wouldn't make sense if he had a dogs voice if he's not a dog. Matthew Lillard's the best because he brings life to the character. Most of the critics that rated the movie Scooby Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed said that Shaggy is the character that stood out. One critic said Matthew Lillard has a gift and I agree, in my opinion he's the best Shaggy. 

1.) Matthew Lillard

2.) Scott Innes, Billy West, Casey Kasem (pretty even though Scott Innes for me stands out)

3.) Scott Menville (I honestly don't know why anyone would ever hire this guy to be Shaggy, his shaggy voice is so annoying)

4.) Nick Palatas ( Don't get me started)

@RH93535 Batman is two different versions of the character, and Adam West wasn't the first voice. Did Shaggy grow into a darker, more serious character over the years? Some people like me prefer the original show and voices, and have that opinion the original is the best.

Casey Kasem - Yeah, he's great. A true classic and legend. my only problem is that in later work, I had a hard time buying that voice coming out of a teenager.
Matthew Lillard - He's a bit different, but he uses a voice and I can believe is coming out of a teen. I like him.
Scott Innes - Good replacement, his voice was a little grating for me at times though.
Billy West - Did an adequate job, don't think he can do the voice convincingly anymore.
Scott Menville - Remember guys, this is not supposed to be the classic Shaggy, and they weren't going to make him a permanent replacement. He was just for this show. But even keeping that in mind, he still sucks.

Casey Kasem IS Shaggy, Scott Innes is the runner up and Billy West comes in third.

I haven't heard much of Matthew Lillard at all and I hardly remember the movies... except that they were awful. He doesn't sound great here, but it's interesting that the live action actor of an established cartoon character went on to voice the character officially.

However, I bet he's improved in the last three years and if I catch some of his recent work I will update this comment.

@PsychicVoiceSpy Evidently Matt is the most popular of the voices. His performance was highly praised by critics in the live-action films and when Casey retired fans had to vote on which actor reprised the role and fans chose Matt which Scott being a close 2nd. I'm not crazy about that decision either but that's the way it works.

@pete He's probably a little better than I give him credit for, but what I've heard from him so far doesn't have nearly as much life and charm as I'd expect from Shaggy. As far as making Shaggy sound more like a teenage, I think Billy West did that pretty well without making him sound boring.

I don't know, maybe once I actually sit through a full film with him voicing Shaggy I'll feel differently, but I can't remember a direct to video Scooby-Doo movie that was really worth watching other than Zombie Island. So, I'm not all that excited to watch the ones with Mathew Lillard because I think the writing in the movies' themselves are stale and rushed. -_-
pete

@PsychicVoiceSpy I meant to say I think Witches Ghost is on par with Zombie Island though lacking a few aspects. As far as Lillard's movies goes the first was nothing really special. Abracadabra Doo was a bit boring to me, Music Of The Vampire is terrible except for the opening song. I don't think the signing was a good idea for the whole movie. Legend Of The Phantosaur I don't remember too much to have an opinion, and Mask Of The Blue Falcon is an enjoyable one if you like the concept of mystery at a comic convention combined with corny yet enjoyable humor. Lillard doesn't too bad in it though. Camp Scare and Big Top are best so far to me especially writing wise, I say Camp Scare is my favorite so far for its setting, concept, and and animation. Same reason I enjoyed Zombie Island and Witches Ghost. I recommend that one more than the others with Big Top close behind. Just thought I'd clarify.

2) Matthew Lillard - I'm a huge fan of Mystery Incorporated, and I feel that Lillard feels very natural in the role.

3) Billy West - Although shifting into "Fry" territory for a couple lines, much like Innes, I first got into Scooby-Doo through Zombie Island. To this day, I feel that Zombie Island is still the best Scooby-Doo film.

4) Casey Kasem - It is obvious he originated the role, but his EXTREMELY hoarse voice in What's New Scooby-Doo?, and his insistence that Shaggy MUST be vegetarian... Left a bitterness in my hear.

5) Scott Menville - Clip speaks for itself xD

1. Casey Kasem- obviously the original voice, but I didn't really like him as much until his work on the character in the 2000s, like he was really trying to win his character back instead of just coasting in his past actions.

2. Matthew Lillard - Honestly he was one of the only things the live action movies has going for them. He actually felt and sounded like Shaggy as opposed to the rest of the cast who just looked like there respective roles. His work on mystery Inc is pretty good as well, actually making the character feel like he's in high school, which sadly Frank, Grey, and Mindy tried to do, but couldn't do it as well.

3. Scott Innes - He was a good stand in for Casey, but his voice always sounded off to me, like he was trying to hard to sound nasally. He's not bad. Just not my Cup of Tea.

4. Billy West - He did fine, but he really just comes off as Fry doing a Shaggy impression.

5. Scott Menville - Yeah, it's not great, in fact it seems like they just got the first person to come in to replace Casey who tried out, since they wouldn't have Shaggy be vegetarian in get a clue so Casey passed. But yeah I'm glad they got casey back, then passed the torch to matt instead.

Obviously, Casey Kasem was instantly iconic and perfect in the role, and he certainly got some of the longest sustained time periods to play around with it. But many of the other actors are quite good, although poor Scott Menville had the misfortune to be both miscast and in a crappy show.

I'm still not sure WHY they had Billy West and Scott Innes alternate on the first few DTV movies, especially since Casey came right back for What's New and the films in that continuity, but both are quite excellent in the role. If you're a nerd like me, you can tell it's Billy, but his impersonation is otherwise spot-on and the actual acting is great, as we should expect from Billy. Innes kind of dropped off the face of the Earth after being in those films, but he was rather good from an acting and impersonation perspective as well.

And then we have Matthew Lillard. I think he's actually grown into the role quite nicely, especially on Mystery, Incorporated. He and Linda Cardellini's Velma were the best things about the live-action Scooby films, so I'm honestly glad he got another crack at the character. He sounds a little younger, sure, but his acting and comic timing meshes quite well with the rest of the cast.

And come on, they cast Casey as his dad! That's just great.

@SpiderDreamer There was a brief period where Casey refused to voice the character after a fallout over a Burger King commercial (Kasem's an avid vegetarian), so Billy and Scott filled in. I'm not sure why Billy left the role, but I personally think Scott's voice is a slight improvement (though I couldn't tell the difference as a kid. I knew they were different from Casey, but I didn't know Shaggy's voice changed between Zombie Island and Witch's Ghost).

I guess if I had to pick an order it would be:

2. Innes - A GREAT substitute for Kasem. He captured everything about the character that made him great.

3. West - While he wasn't a perfect match, he still managed to get into character and be a suitable voice for the character.

4. Lillard - Sounds a little stoned, but I guess he gets the job done. He's better as the realistic, more natural Shaggy in the live action movies.

5. Menville - Just... no. He sounded way too forced, and totally out of character and over-the-top. It's painful to listen to.

Good thing I looked for this... I've been a tremendous fan of the series since it started, and never really knew it back then since I was born in 1996. Kasem gave Shaggy the sparks in acting and voice performance from the start, and when kenn said that he disliked the older cartoons for their terrible quality and lack of humor, I never hesitated to disagree on that, since most people nowadays would actually want things from the past to make a great comeback. Billy West for that matter had a good take and replacement for Casey, however both Scott Innes and Matthew make better replacements because they seem to make the character sound like what he really is. And for my final words, I wouldn't say that Menville is terrible, but he goes as being a bit miscast for the character. His Robin and Lloyd Irving voices from both Teen Titans and Tales of Symphonia respectively are far more superior, but can have some downsides as well. So that aside, all voice actors took their parts and created one unique thing for Shaggy: his personality and character.

I never really liked Kasem, or the older cartoons for that matter (due to the horrible animation quality, and lack of humor, even as a 5+ year old)

However, the newer movies/shows are much more fleshed out and give justice to the franchise for once.

That said, I have to agree, anything but Menville more or less. You can hear when they try to do the 'cracks' or 'accents' that they loose the Kasem feel, which agian isnt' a bad thing.

Lillard's alright for a non voice acting actor to be doing voice acting, so far as that goes.

Billy West would be my choice but i see in the new series they've gone for Lillard. Umm, he's pretty awful really.

I have been avoiding Scooby for a while now because I feel that they all sound the same - but he will be added eventually trust me!

Just FYI though - requests need to be made in the forums.

It would be nice if you added Scrappy Doo's Uncle
Scooby his 1st voice compares like his friends
Shaggy, Freddie, Daphne and Velma for a change.

We know he was in Mystery Inc - We have him credited for that role on that show page. But we dont add someone multiple times to the same voice compare that would be pretty redundant

casey kasem was a amazing shaggy from 1969-1998,2002-2009, billy was good subsitute in 1998 (when casey quit because they would not make shaggy a vegitarian) scott was a pretty good stand in from 1999-2002(which scott makes comebacks every now and than like he did in the first frights video game) casey made a great comeback while it lasted.scott menville was pretty bad as shaggy(NO OFFENSE) ,matthew is an ok current shaggy )he gives shaggy that hippie personality which shaggy is a hippie.all the shaggy can hardly beat kasem but some of them were pretty close.

I liked Casey and Innes the best. West was great too. Menville was the only one I didn't like.

Matthew Lillard will be added as soon as I can get a clip form Abacadabre (hard to come by at the moment)

I will say that Menville is my least favorite and that Innes does an admirable job imitating Kasem, but in this case Kasem cannot be beaten.
