** I think that's the case. Fred, Velma, and Daphne were originally more the straight man and women to the zanier Shaggy and Scooby, and so Shaggy and Scooby got more focus.


Added DiffLines:

** Shaggy and Scooby did sometimes find important things, even if that isn't their goal (e.g., "Spooky Space Kook", when they found the electronics system the ghost was using to haunt the airfield, or "A Clue for Scooby Doo", when Scooby found Captain Cutler's secret scuba storehouse). Furthermore, they may not have known what the clues meant, but at least sometimes they did recognize that it was a clue. Insofar as in-universe reasons, maybe the others didn't want to have to deal with trying to keep Shaggy and Scooby on task while simultaneously searching for clues, or maybe they figured things seemed to go okay the way they were doing it, so why switch it up?

* Why were Shaggy and Scooby usually send off by themselves to investigate? They never did anything useful, while Fred's team always found all the important clues. (I know why it was done from the writer's standpoint, but within the show's context if you're breaking into teams to search for clues, there should be at least one competent person on each team!)

* Why were Freddy, Daphne, and Velma taken out in some incarnations? Some shows starred only Scooby and Shaggy. Out of universe, did Hanna Barbera thought Scooby and Shag were more popular than the other characters?

Why aren't the Scooby-Doo Gang famous? They saved the world from costume villains dozens of times. Shouldn't they be like celebrities in their universe?

* Shouldn't the Scooby-Doo Gang be arrested for vigilantism? They're fighting dangerous criminals, solving mysteries, and taking matters in their own hands. I can see them getting away with this in 1969, but the late 2000s?

** How about when the show is trying to fool the viewers into thinking the monster's real in every episode even though kids are already familiar with Scooby-Doo?

* How come they never mention the idea of the monster being fake until the end of the episode, when they've caught the monster and it's time to pull the mask off? When Velma pulls the mask off, she usually says "Now let's see who's really behind this," or something like that. So she's acting on the assumption that it's obviously just a person in a suit. But before that moment, they never say a word about the monster being fake, and basically just act like they're dealing with the real thing. They never ever say things like "Hm, the monster is sure to be a person in a suit. I wonder who! Let's catch it and find out." Why is mentioning the fact that monsters are fake such a taboo?
