Velma Dinkley has been in Scooby-Doo since the show started in 1969. She is known as the brains behind the operations of Mystery Inc. She uses her vast knowledge or sees the most important clue to find out the truth about the ghosts. Velma is often taken for granted by the other members of Mystery Inc. and by audiences.
She is known for losing her glasses and for her catchphrase, “Jinkies!” Velma has also been loved as an LGBTQ+ icon for a long time, but her sexuality wasn’t made clear until recent years when creators like Mystery Incorporated producer Tony Cervone and live-action Scooby-Doo writer James Gunn came out to say that Velma is gay. Velma has never been the most attractive member of Mystery Inc., but Velma will give her the attention she deserves.
Velma is not the first spinoff of Scooby-Doo. The Scooby-Doo franchise has grown over the years to include live-action movies, animated series, animated movies, and more. Velma has been played by a number of actors in Scooby-Doo and its many spinoffs, both in real life and as voice actors. These actors include Hayley Kiyoko, Linda Cardellini, and Nicole Jaffe, who was Velma’s original voice. Now, Kaling will step up to be Velma’s voice in the new version. This is what we know about the Velma spinoff.
Velma Animated Series Will Be An Adult & Graphic Scooby-Doo Spinoff
First impressions of HBO Max’s Velma show that this spinoff is not for kids at all. In the adult animated show, Velma will be looking into more serious crimes than the simple holograms and real estate scams that Scooby-Doo has solved in the past.

The first look at the animated spinoff, which was shown at Warner Bros. Discovery Upfront, shows that it will be much gorier than most Scooby-Doo episodes. It shows Velma standing over a victim whose head had been cut open to remove their brain, with brain matter scattered around the crime scene.

So far, only Mindy Kaling, who plays Pam on The Office, has been named as Velma’s voice. Kaling has said that her Velma will be from South Asia. At the Discovery Upfront presentation, she told the crowd that if a dog can solve crimes, her Velma “can be brown.” Even though she got some negative feedback about the character change, Kaling has stayed strong. Before the show’s premiere, more cast members should be revealed.
Velma Animated Series Story: How Does It Connect To Scooby-Doo?
Velma’s plot hasn’t been talked about much, but the series will likely tell Velma’s origin story in a way that is very different from the Scooby-Doo most people grew up with.
I thought the chip n dale movie was the most bizarre shit I've seen this week.

Warner Bros. executive Tom Ascheim said at the TV Kids Summer Festival that there will be “no dog and no van,” but that the show will follow Shaggy, Fred, Daphne, and Velma as if they lived in a “different world.”
Even though any Scooby-Doo project would be different without the series’ main dog detective, Scooby-Doo, the Velma series will give the gang a chance to grow and Velma a chance to be the main detective.
