Even the first shot looks like the first shot of the cartoon with the fog and the creepy old house.
One lazy day, Velma invites Shaggy and Scooby over to help clean her house, and what happens after that results in Velma meeting her dream guy, but is Velma's new boyfriend just too good to be true?
Couples: Fred/Daphne, Velma/OC, Shaggy/Velma possibly. Author's Notes: Scooby Doo and all related characters and trademarks are copyright 2010 Hanna-Barbera Productions/Warner Brothers/Cartoon Network.
Her TV role was taken over by Patricia Stevens, who evidently left the busines in 1984.
After the original series, there was a Scooby Doo relaunch featuring Shaggy and Scooby, and Daphne.
I'm fairly certain they said that at some point in the miserable abomination The 13 Ghosts of Scooby Doo. I was 8 at the time, and it's not like I actually enjoyed it or anything.)

She is usually seen wearing a baggy orange turtleneck, short pleated skirt (or in later episodes an A-line skirt, or sometimes shorts), knee socks, and Mary Janes. Throughout her various incarnations, Velma is usually portrayed as a highly intelligent young woman with highly specific interests in science (which in the Scooby and Scrappy Doo series leads her to pursue a career as a NASA research scientist) or merely being very well read on obscure fields, such as Viking writing (as in the third Scooby-Doo series The New Scooby-Doo Mysteries). Abracadabra-Doo, Velma is described by her younger sister Madelyn as being "born with a mystery book in her hand".
Consequently, Velma is usually the one to figure out the mystery, sometimes with the help of Fred and Daphne. Like all of the Scooby-Doo kids, later ret-conned as Mystery Incorporated members, Velma has differing personal backgrounds and histories depending on which series one is referring to.
