Top 10 Reasons Why Velma (2023) is AwfulVelma 2023 is a reboot of sorts of the Scooby Doo series which was created by Mindy Kaling, and so far, it has become universally hated by just about everyone for how much it disrespects the Scooby Doo franchise and butchers the Scooby Doo cast, making them unrecognizable. So, for this list, we will be counting down the top reasons why Velma 2023 is awful.
Mindy Kaling is a horrible protagonist. She reminds me too much of another horrible animated female protagonist with similar skin tone and levels of unlikability that everyone except for the writers can notice about a decade earlier. #NotMyVelma
Velma is possibly the worst offender of this show being extremely unlikable by being extremely arrogant, smug, dismissive of others and always thinks she's right despite what others think and she acts nothing like how Velma is normally portrayed.
Not to be racist (I'm Bi-racial) why did they make Velma Black/Indian, she's White.
This show has zero respect for the Scooby Doo franchise and goes out of its way to disrespect the series by changing the characters and turning them into the opposite of how the characters are usually portrayed.
Nearly every character on this show are unlikable a-holes not just the main cast but almost every character on the show is unlikable to the point where it just becomes unpleasant.
A lot of the jokes are not funny as the characters just spout random vulgar things just to get a laugh from the viewers and many of the jokes are repetitive and just beat you over the head with it.
The nerve of Mindy Kaling mocking adults like me for watching cartoons as adults. What were HBO Max thinking? Spoiler Alert, they weren't! Although I'm not surprised, just "Iago from Aladdin" surprised. #NotMyVelma
They completely turned Fred from a competent leader to a pathetic whiny brat who the show loves to treat like a punching bag and make jokes at his expense at one point he literally gets turned into Hitler just to set up a joke which isn't even funny.
Like a lot of terrible adult cartoon shows it relies too heavily on shocking and offensive material that it lacks any substance to go along with it.
Norville who is not even Shaggy in this show is about one of the few characters that is tolerable compared to everyone else who are unlikable jerks.
What if Daphne and Velma never existed in the Scooby Foo franchise?
I cannot stand so called female protagonist and a main cast of mean spirited characters being mean-spirited for no reason other than because the script writers demanded it.
A typical Mindy Kaling project that is an insult to Scooby-Doo fans. Not to mention the fact that the idiots at HBO Max and Warner Brothers hired her despite the fact that she kissed a male actor in the lips without his consent in the past.
I'm talking about that one moment when Fred turned into Hitler.
Only awful because he deserves to be in a much better series.
