- You may also be looking for the TV series Velma.
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 is a teenage girl with an auburn-colored bob cut, a slightly wide waistline and freckles. Her fashion choices are somewhat comfortable, wearing a baggy, orange turtleneck sweater, a red skirt, orange socks that extend to her knees, and black Mary Jane shoes. She is well known for wearing square, thick-framed glasses.
In various incarnations, Velma is a highly intelligent woman with an interest in science. She is well-read on many fields and is fascinated by mysteries. Because of her highly analytical intellect, Velma is typically the first Mystery Inc. member to solve a mystery, and often keeps her conclusions a secret till the very end. She is also the most skeptical of the gang and is most likely to discount any accounts of paranormal activity, often holding a philosophy that there is always a rational explanation in everything. Velma was initially characterized as a humble girl with a no-nonsense attitude, though modern iterations of the character—namely Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated—depict her as highly sarcastic.
Despite using her knowledge in solving mysteries, Velma is prone to nearsightedness, which came from losing her glasses on many occasions.

SCOOB! on the Big Screen
Velma is the titular character. In this series, she is of South Asian descent.
Velma Sells Out
In The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part, Velma pops up in the apocalyptic setting.
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.
Velma in the Funny Books
Velma Survives the Apocalypse
Velma in the Cyber Realm
Velma is a fighter in Multiversus. She makes a brief appearance in Scooby-Doo Mystery. She is a playable character in Scooby-Doo! Mystery of the Fun Park Phantom, Scooby-Doo! First Frights, and Scooby-Doo! and the Spooky Swamp, and is an NPC in Scooby-Doo! Classic Creep Capers, Scooby-Doo and the Cyber Chase (video game), Scooby-Doo! Night of 100 Frights, Scooby-Doo! Mystery Mayhem, and Scooby-Doo! Unmasked.
Velma's template when being created was Zelda Gilroy from the 1960s sitcom The Many Lives of Dobie Gillis. Although writer Mark Evanier believes this resulted in something "very, very remote and hardly worth talking about", perhaps if one were to ignore the fact that the actress who played her is gay which Velma had recently been revealed to be at the time of his writing.

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 Animaniacs segment "Back in Style," the Warner siblings are loaned to a Hanna-Barbera-type studio that lets the Warner siblings "play themselves" in its cartoon Uhuru, Where Are You? In this parody, Pheobe acts as a stand-in for both Velma and Daphne.
- In the film Can't Hardly Wait, two stoners contemplate that Velma was a hip chick who "didn't get much play." Incidentally, one of those stoners was played by Jason Segel, who dated Linda Cardellini around the time that she played Velma.
- In the Arthur segment "The Rat Who Came to Dinner," Velma is anthropomorphized as an animal with the rest of the gang in Mr. Ratburn's favourite old show Spooky-Poo.
- In the third episode of BBC Radio 4's Dead Ringers, there is a sketch based on Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!, featuring only Shaggy, Scooby, and Velma.
- In the Timon and Pumbaa episode "Werehog of London," a fortune teller warns Timon and Pumbaa that no one is safe from the curse of the werehog, not even "those meddling teens and their pesky dog." Then the camera reveals an orange and blue van resembling the Mystery Machine that has been abandoned after it was knocked into a lamp post.
- In the Gimme Gimme Gimme episode "Glad to Be Gay?," Tom fumbles in thinking of a gorgeous lesbian to feel Linda better about the prospect of her change in sexual preference (which is ironic since she is not really that attractive), but he can only think of "Velma from Scooby-Doo."
- On the first page of Archie's Weird Mysteries #6, Betty is dressed up like Velma as she becomes a parody of Daphne for the comic's story (sans outfit). She inexplicably cries "Jinkies," when she's scared.
- In the film Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, the title characters hitchhike in a green van owned by a bunch of odd adults vaguely resembling Mystery Incorporated. The Velma doppelganger, referred to in the credits as "Bookworm Girl," is a closet lesbian who reveals she would like to have picked up a couple of hitchhiking girls after Daphne mishears her saying "hitchhiking ghouls." Jay introduces "doobie snacks" to the gang, but this is just a dream of Jay's.
- In the Danny Phantom episode "The Million Dollar Ghost," one of the members of the Groovy Gang is called Fran, who despite being chubby, has long red hair and a similar outfit to Daphne, while wearing glasses like Velma.
- In the Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide episode "Guide to: Secrets and School Car Wash," Simon uses technology to make Ned look like a ghost to make Loomer confess to Suzie he kissed Missy, which leads to a chase between the two main boys and the bully, during which they bump into the bespectacled Lisa suddenly dressed like Velma, who loses her glasses and Lisa can't see without her glasses!
- In the 30 Rock episode "Sun Tea," it is revealed that a college-aged Liz had a similar fashion sense and hairstyle to Velma.
- In the Psych episode "In Plain Fright," a haunted house, amusement park, and a comment Lassiter makes about how kids should be scared of the law instead of adults in costumes, after uncovering a dead guy, leads Shawn to argue that they've got "bona fide Scooby-Doo case". This is followed by Shawn wanting Gus to say, "Zoinks," who refuses, only to say, "Jinkies," instead. Later, Lassiter describes Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! without knowing the name, by saying, "He [Shawn] and Gus think they're in some cartoon with a talking Great Dane and a psychedelically painted van" to which O'Hara responds correctly, "Scooby-Doo?" Making Lassiter realize why Shawn had been calling him Velma. When he says that the key to dealing with Shawn is to keep a psychological upper hand, she reminds him that Shawn calls him Velma.
- In the Aqua Teen Hunger Force episode "One Hundred," the Aqua Teen Hunger Force star in a parody of Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!, with the new character of Tabitha added to the group who acts as a cross between Velma and Daphne. When Tabitha announced 100's entire plan, he took revenge by knocking her to the ground and taking her away to rape and behead her, although not necessarily in that order.
- In the New Teen Titans short "Turn Back the Clock," Mad Mod turns back time altering the appearances of the Teen Titans with each passing decade, with the 70s making them look like Mystery Inc.; Raven is Velma.
