His name for production purposes is '''Boy Teen 8''' (''Oh, the Obscurity!''). In "[[Cafe Disaffecto]]," a seating chart is shown in [[Mr. O'Neill]]'s hands, according to which Shaggy is actually named '''Devan'''; before the clarity of the DVD release, this had been misread as '''Dewey'''. For consistency, the more commonly used nickname will be used here. (Do not confuse with the ''Daria'' fan artist, [[Beatnik Shaggy]].)

In "The New Kid," Shaggy is revealed to be on the school's yearbook staff. He shares various classes with Daria and Jane in the series (such as Jane's math class in "[[See Jane Run]]"), but he never interacts with them. He went to the [[Mall of the Millennium]] in "[[Malled]]" and on the paintball expedition in "[[The Daria Hunter]]."

Surprisingly, he's interested in competitive running and applied for the [[Lawndale High Track Team]] in "See Jane Run" - but sadly, he was not picked and had to sit far in the background, where only obsessive ''Daria'' fans with zoom-in would see him. (Hi Shaggy!)

* He appears in two places at one time in "[[The Invitation]]" and "[[This Year's Model]]"

* Despite being shown joining Lawndale at the same time as Daria, in "[[The Misery Chick]]" he is present in a flashback, watching [[Tommy Sherman]] play at a [[Lawndale Lions]] match, and appears to be a teenaged student... ''at least three years'' before the present day.

* In "Pinch Sitter", he either transformed into or swapped places with [[Angel (backgrounder)|Angel]] in the middle of class... or was it vice versa?
 
 
 
* He has never, ever had any books, rucksack, or writing material in any classroom scene... but no teacher has ''ever'' called him on this and he manages to move up into every new grade. Somehow, despite never taking notes (unless they're sneaked into his pocket), he's remembering everything from class.  
 
  
* More amazing than any of the above, in "[[Groped by an Angel]]" he is seen sitting at ''the same table as Quinn'', listening to her alongside the [[Three Js]]: Quinn has been shown (e.g., "[[The New Kid]]") to be very particular about who sits at a lunch table with her, so how on Earth did Shaggy pull that off?

He also has a knack for appearing during certain important events in the series: he watched [[Kevin Thompson]] crash his motor scooter and injure his leg in "[[A Tree Grows in Lawndale]]," he was aboard the doomed passenger ship ''[[Princess Fairy]]'' in "[[Just Add Water]]" (wearing a suit, no less), hears Daria's startling speech about her father in "[[Jake of Hearts]]," and is one of the few eyewitnesses to the falling out between Daria and Jane in a school hallway when Daria admits kissing [[Tom Sloane]] ("[[Dye! Dye! My Darling]]").
