[show]The show was originally created to expand upon the success of The Archie Show. Series creators Joe Ruby and Ken Spears and Scooby-Doo writer Mark Evanier have stated that the teenagers were based on characters from another CBS show, The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis. Fred was based on Dobie Gillis, Daphne on Thalia Menninger, Velma on Zelda Gilroy, and Shaggy on Maynard G. Krebs (even having similar goatee beards and hairstyles). Another influence was the 1940s radio drama "I Love a Mystery"; the concept was also similar to Enid Blyton's Famous Five books.
- Shaggy is the only character (apart from Scooby himself) to be in every incarnation of the series.
