in the 2020s scooby dooGunn said in a now-deleted tweet, “In 2001, Velma was clearly gay in my first screenplay,” he wrote. (version shot), then nothing (released version), finally got a boyfriend (sequel).”
The film was originally slated to be PG-13, but was cut to PG after three parents were furious at a test screening in Sacramento. Did… language and jokes and sexual situations were removed, including a kiss between Daphne and Velma. But thankfully the fart remained. At the time I thought the rating change was a mistake…it felt like a lot of teenagers showed up in the first movie and didn’t get what they wanted (and didn’t come back for the sequel) I was. But I don’t know today. So many young kids loved those movies.

We always planned for Velma to act a little out of character when she was dating Shaggy. It looks as clear as it did ten years ago. I don’t think Mercy and Velma have had time to act on their feelings in the main timeline, but they are a couple after the reset. You may not like it, but this was our intention.
