No Scooby-Doo Or Mystery Van In Mindy Kaling’s Velma Adult Animated Comedy
Although I’m a huge fan of the original Scooby Doo cartoon series (who isn’t?), I have to admit, I like when creators diverge from source material and make a project their own. When it works, it works so much better than just trying to recreate old magic. Excited to see where Mindy Kaling takes us on this one! Via toonado.com.
When asked about how WB has been finding and nuturing talent, Ascheim eventually pulled the curtain back a bit on the reimagined Scooby-Doo show, confirming that that there will be no dog or van on this interpretation of the legendary Hanna-Barbera prouctiion.
“We have a not for children, Mindy Kaling project called Velma because she was excited to reimagine what Scooby-Doo would be like if Velma were of East Asian descent and lived in a different world. And in that version, which is going on HBO Max first, there’s no dog and no van but we have our 4 key characters through a different lens and I think it’s great. Allowing our creators to play with our IP is super powerful.”
