Velma’s sexuality in Scooby-Doo has been an open secret for a decade. However, it’s only the newest movie “Trick or Treat Scooby Doo” that makes an official depiction of who she is. A clip from the latest animated movie has been buzzing all over the internet, wherein Velma can be seen “googly-eyed and speechless when encountering costume designer Coco Diablo. One tweet, “OMG LESBIAN VELMA FINALLY,” has gained over 100,000 likes.
In another scene from this movie, Daphne (Grey Griffin) teases Velma about this obvious attraction. In her response, the mystery-solver says, “I didn’t know convicted felons were your type. A nervous Velma then brushes the comments off before explaining, “Oh, who am I kidding? I’m crushing big time, Daphne!”
Even though Evan James, the man behind early live-action Scooby-Doo films and supervising producer, Tony Cervone previously confirmed the character’s sexuality, it was never made official onscreen. As Marvel continues to showcase new “LGBTQ+ heroes”, it seems like one of the oldest cartoon series too has taken steps in the right direction.

During 2020 Pride Month, Tony Cervone revealed on Instagram: I’ve said this before, but Velma in ‘Mystery Incorporated’ is not bi. She’s gay. We always planned on Velma acting a little off and out of character when she was dating Shaggy because that relationship was wrong for her and she had unspoken difficulty with the why.
He added, “There are hints about the why in that episode with the mermaid, and if you follow the entire Marcie arc it seems as clear as we could make it 10 years ago. I don’t think Marcie and Velma had time to act on their feelings during the main timeline, but post reset, they are a couple. You can not like it, but this was our intention.”
