No longer a Mystery Incorporated: Scooby-Doo’s Velma is gay

After decades of rumor and innuendo, one of animation’s worst kept secrets has finally been confirmed: Scooby-Doo’s Velma is lesbian.

Clips from Halloween special “Trick or Treat Scooby-Doo,” released this week, show the brainy sleuth’s glasses fogging up and her cheeks reddening when she first meets villainous costume designer Coco Diablo.

The gang of amateur detectives in “Scooby Doo” have been solving mysteries since 1969, delighting generations of children as they unmask a villain who invariably declares he “would have gotten away with it, if it weren’t for you pesky kids.”

Fans have long agreed that Velma is queer, but the new movie marks the first definitive confirmation.

In 2020 producer Tony Cervone posted an Instagram photo of Velma and another female character against a rainbow-themed Pride backdrop.

“Most of our fans got it. To those that didn’t, I suggest you look closer.”

He added: “That being said, it does feel great to be a part of normalizing representation, especially with such a well-known franchise like Scooby-Doo!”

“OMG LESBIAN VELMA FINALLY CANON CANON IN THE MOVIES LETS GOOOOOO,” said one tweet which received well over 200,000 likes.
