Velma Dinkley is a member of Mystery Incorporated of the Scooby-Doo animated franchise. Her voice was originated by Nicole Jaffe.

Throughout the years, Hanna-Barbera, Cartoon Network, and Warner Bros. Animation, as well as book and video game publishers, have conceived several incarnations, which don't always fit together because new writers have come on board and disregarded what has come before or there has been a complete reboot, but the general concept has been the same, perhaps except for DC Comics' radically altered Scooby Apocalypse.

Velma Sells Out

In 2005, Velma appeared in a Dove shampoo commercial, with Wilma Flintstone and Jane Jetson.

In 2013, Velma is in the first State Farm commercial.

In The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part, Velma pops up in the apocalyptic setting.

In the Teen Titans Go! episode "Cartoon Feud," Velma and her friends are forced by Control Freak to compete against the Teen Titans in Family Feud.

In the Warner Bros. Serververse in Space Jam: A New Legacy, the gang (based on their SCOOB! designs), arrive at the basketball game between the Tune Squad and the Goon Squad in the Mystery Machine, then watch from outside the van. Mystery Inc., like all the other IPs, has no particular preference and just reacts to whatever is happening.

Behind the scenes

In popular culture

  • In Disney's Doug episode "Doug's Bloody Buddy," the teaser depicts a fantasy in which Doug and his friends are like Mystery Inc. searching for the Bluffington Vampire. Patti is the counterpart to Velma.
  • In the Timon and Pumbaa episode "Werehog of London," a fortune teller warns Timon and Pumbaa that no one is safe of the curse of the werehog, not even "those meddling teens and their pesky dog," and then the camera reveals an orange and blue van resembling the Mystery Machine that has been abandoned after it was knocked into a lampost.
  • In the Teen Titans Go! episode "Costume Contest," Robin does a drawing of Teen Titans as Mystery Inc., with Raven as Velma.
