Despite the fact that Velma is taking a harsh beating when it comes to criticism week after week, the serie of animation for adults of HBO Max continues its course.
One of the most criticized aspects of the series, which are not few, is the notable absence of a key character to understand the world of Scooby-Doo, the talking Great Dane himself who has won the affection of the public since his appearance in 1969.
Velma’s showrunners, Charlie Grandy y Mindy Kaling, they pointed out that Scooby was not going to make an appearance in the series. However, as CBR’s friends point out, he could have been a prank.
The series could have headed towards establishing a sinister origin for the talking Great Dane through its main case. Y Norvillewhich is not yet nicknamed “Shaggy”It could have a lot to do with it. Well, not him, his family.
Will Velma establish the origin of Scooby?
series of HBO Max has revealed that Norville’s grandmother participated in a controversial military program called Special COvert Operation Brain Initiative, o S.C.O.O.B.I.according to its acronym.
This plan sought to swap the brains of government spies into the heads of teenagers. Velma’s main case has seen several victims turn up with their brains removed, but the bodies are left behind.
It is possible that the villain behind these misdeeds is also experimenting on animals, which would give Scooby-Doo an origin in the purest style of the Frankenstein monster.
Obviously, the initials of SCOOBI could be nothing more than a nod to the beloved character and that, indeed, Velma does not have the Great Dane at all.
Of course, the absence of the famous dog from the series is just one of Velma’s many problems, which has failed to respect nostalgia when it comes to bringing the cynical sense of humor of adult animation to characters with more than half a century of existence.
