Shaggy And Scooby Doo Get A Clue

Shaggy and Scooby Doo, the Lovable Coward/Big Eater duo from the Scooby-Doo franchise, branch out in their own show, where Shaggy inherits millions of dollars and a mansion from his missing Uncle Albert, an inventor. However, Uncle Albert's inventions are being pursued by the sinister Dr. Phineas Phibes and his henchmen. Fortunately, Shaggy and Scooby can thwart their evil plans thanks to special Scooby Snacks that give Scooby-Doo temporary superpowers... Wait, where are you going? Come back, we weren't finished yet! The villain pilots a submarine laboratory!

All kidding aside, the show wasn't bad as most people made it out to be. It still carried the spirit of its predecessors, had an interesting ongoing plot and for once gave Shaggy and Scooby the spotlight without having to add another main character to the mix. Phibes also was quite an entertaining villain to watch as well which helped plenty with the show's humor.

For better or worse, it was a worthy attempt at trying something new with the mythos. In fact it was actually one of Kids' WB!'s better rated shows. The only reason it didn't get any further beyond two seasons was because of the CW shutting down the Kids WB block after 4Kids had bought it.
