I think it was a derailment of Shaggy to make him totally irresponsible. Look at him at the start of the series: no job, no money, no food in the house, and worst of all no awareness that he didn't have any more food until he went looking. That's seriously messed up.
Once he was saved by an undeserved fortune he threw money around without any consideration -- like blasting the wall and home of his neighbor with high-powered speakers and setting his trees on fire with a turbo barbeque. This goes beyond the likeable, easy-going Shaggy of the old series into an outright jerk of a protagonist.

I don't HATE it by I dislike it because it seemed so "out of" everything. I was thinking "Why is he doing that crazy stuff, he's not supposed to be that brave, he's wearing the wrong clothes and WHERE IS EVERYBODY?"

I think Jeff Bennett alone is reason to watch the show. He's an immensely talented voice actor who made the characters he played genuinely out of their of mind that gave it so much more depth than the lame wacky Jonny Test characters.
