Scooby-Doo is a long running franchise about a dog and his human friends defeating villains with their mystery solving skills. This list is my ranking of the members of the team. This list includes the original members as well as the members that joined later on. This list is dedicated to Bill Hanna, Joe Barbera, Don Messick, and Casey Kasem.
8. Flim Flam
You're likely wondering who this is. Flim flam is from The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo. Flim Flam was only a member in that show. He's a male kid who kind of acts like a troublemaker and became friends with Scrappy-Doo. I don't hate Flim flam, but I think that he's a weak addition to the group. He didn't add much to the franchise. The best thing about him is that his name reminds of 1 of My Little Pony's best duos.
7. Velma Dinkley
Velma Dinkley is the smartest member of the group. Despite being low on my list she's a important character. However I don't think she's that interesting or entertaining. In fact it's hard to even think of things to say about her.
6. Daphne Blake
Daphne Blake is the other female member of the group. She likes fashion and Fred. She's another member of the group that doesn't appeal to me that much. However she's occasionally a interesting character like in A Pup Named Scooby-Doo which gave her more of a personality.
Scooby-Doo is the title character of the franchise. He has the advantage of being voiced by good voice actors including Don Messick and Frank Welker. Scooby is a okay character, but I don't get why he's the most popular member. Other than being a dog he and Shaggy are pretty similar.
Scooby-Dum is a former member of the group. Despite being a weird addition to the group he was a good comedy relief. I actually think he's funnier than Scooby. He's not much more than a comedy relief, but he did his job goodly.
3. Norville Rogers (Shaggy)
Shaggy is the main human character of the franchise and Scooby's best friend. He's similar to Scooby, but I think that Shaggy's jokes are more clever and fun. There are some versions of the franchise where he's the funniest character.
2. Fred Jones
Fred Jones is the leader of the group. He's a normal leader in the original shows, but recent versions of the franchise have made be a more goofy character. I think that he's a underrated character. In A Pup Named Scooby-Doo and What's New Scooby-Doo? he's the most entertaining character. Plus the original show's Fred is so plain in terms of personality that it makes the show unintentionally amusing.
Poor Scrappy-Doo tends to get hated by people, but he's been my favorite Scooby-Doo character since I was a kid. As a kid I thought there was pretty much nothing more adorable than him. Plus there was a episode where he dressed like a rabbit which might be the cutest thing ever. People act like Scrappy's a jerk which I disagree with. He's brave. It may be foolish for him to try to beat up the villains, but his dedication is admirable and cool.
