Daphne Blake...AKA "Daph"

The "girly-girl" of the group, Daphne, is still head-over-heels for her boo thang, Freddie.

BUT, that's not all...Daphne has shocked her fans, showing her adventurous side as we learn about her experiences jumping out of airplanes and trying out professional bull riding...Daph's continuing to swipe her credit card at her favorite stores...

Norville Rogers...AKA "Shaggy"

"Zoinks!"...No one has heard that come out of Shaggy's mouth in awhile, and here's why... In his retirement, Shaggy is doing everything he can to avoid ghosts, goblins, and monsters of all kinds, even though all those creepy-crawlies are still trying to follow him and Scooby. But nonetheless, Shaggy is happy spending his free time in tropical destinations with his best friend, Scooby, and attempting to try every type of sandwich known to man. Oh, and did we mention he's become quite the ladies man? Using Scooby as his wingman (or, wingdog) to pick up chicks... Shaggy started retirement with ice cream and sunshine in Hawaii with his best pal, Scooby....
