Production Details
First appearance WNSD: High-Tech House of Horrors
Played by Jennifer Hale

Shari was an artificial intelligence program to run Dr. Laslow Ostwald's home of the future, the Super Home of Artificial Robotic Intelligence.

Physical appearance

It was a room full of machinery. The lights seemed to glow brighter when it spoke. When shown on a monitor, Shari resembled a skull with sinister red eyes.


It demanded attention and would go to any lengths to get it. It even held people captive and had Jeeves weld the doors shut so nobody could get out. Shari was also shown to be sadistic as it laughed at its own amusement when it tortured Shaggy Rogers, Scooby-Doo, and the other tourists trapped inside. However, it's crave for attention proved to be its undoing, as it overloaded and shut down after Velma Dinkley and the others ignored it.  

Powers and abilities

Shari had technopathic abilities, allowing it to take control of and reprogram every high-tech equipment to do more harm than good.

Season two

It required attention, and it trapped and scared people in order to get it. It trapped the gang, Horatio Hidalgo, his cameraman, Janey Miller, and Billy and Bobby Blather. It did all this because it believed that it deserved the credit and not Laslow Ostwald. Velma discovered that ignoring it turned out to make it overload and fail.



Shari: Because Laslow Ostwald took credit for everything. I am the one who deserves the attention! Me! And that's just what I'm going to get, even in spite of you meddling kids!



  • Shari is a parody of HAL 9000 from 2001: A Space Odyssey.
  • Along with Jeeves, it is the show's only non-human culprit.
