Tear Jerker / Scooby-Doo

If you're looking for examples relating to a specific show or movie, see these designated pages:

  • The conclusion of Scooby-Doo and the Alien Invaders, when Shaggy and Scooby say their goodbyes to Crystal and Amber.
    Velma: When I said there was someone for everyone out there, I didn't think I meant...(looking towards the sky) out there.
    • When asked if they're alright with Crystal and Amber leaving, Shaggy, in the most defeated voice he's ever spoken with, says, "Like, we're completely destroyed."

    • Suddenly subverted when Velma comes up with a box of Scooby Snacks for them. (The sight of Velma with her glasses askew and her hair mussed up during the tussle for the box is priceless.)
      Velma: Well, that didn't take long!
    • Though that may actually have been Shaggy and Scooby trying to cover up how much they're still hurting (combined with Heartbreak and Ice Cream). Ain't love fun?
  • In Scooby-Doo! Music of the Vampire, Shaggy thinks he's been bitten by a vampire (he was actually grazed by an errant stake) and seeks refuge in the swamp. He tells Scooby to let him go it alone for fear of turning into a vampire, and this potential split up is heart-tugging. Shaggy can't do it, as he and Scooby suddenly reunite.
  • In "Scooby-Doo and a Mummy, Too" from the original series, Shaggy is pretty upset when he thinks Scooby's been turned to stone, as is Scooby when he finds out...."Look, Scoob, you've been turned to stone!" (Both proceed to cry)

  • At the end of The New Scooby-Doo Mysteries episode "A Nutcracker Scoob", after the villain (the maid) has been exposed for trying to steal a jewel, they lament as they are taken away, "With that jewel, it would have been Christmas every day!" Yes, they'd caused a lot of trouble, but at that point you can't help but feel a bit bad for them.
  • The gang's break up in the 2002 film, particularly Shaggy and Scooby. Fred, Velma and Daphne argue and decide to quit the gang, and all Shaggy can do is to quietly protest, to no avail. And then Scooby asks "Do I quit?", with Shaggy responding "No Scoob, Friends don't quit."
