Mlle. Dinkley Asks: How do you feel about Fred's "new" embodiment in the new series, and
which Fred do you prefer--the old Fred or the new Fred from WNSD? Personally, I
like the old Fred.
Velma: I think this scene from SD1 truly was the low point in
my feelings toward Fred. There I am, forty feet up on a catwalk, and he
hits me with a firehouse! Fred used to be such a smart, strong, and
honest guy, both to us and to himself! I would give anything to
have the old Fred back! Recently, I have seen glimpses of the old Fred.
He seams to have got over himself, but still has not found the balance
of confidence and brains that he used to posses.
|Lizzie Writes: I think you're really great and I can really relate to you. I had a question.
What's going on with you and Patrick? Are you dating? Has he kissed you? And if
there is a SD3 will u 2 be together in it??
Velma: Well, he is still a good friend, I am not the
"kiss and tell" type ;)
I can't say much about SD3 as it is very much up in the air.
JC or Jeremy Writes: Hello, Velma. I love your every episode. Though I
don't get to catch up with them because I'm always (kinda) booked. I live in the Philippines. Ever heard of the country? It's located in South east asia. Do you love mysteries?
Velma: Yes, of course I know the Philippines! We were
just in South-east Asia. As for mysteries, you don't stick with something from
age 5 if you don't like it!
Lovecraft Follower Writes: So, I've heard the rumors and I just have to ask. I've heard that
Shaggy (as portrayed by Matthew Lilliard) does not want to be in a third Scooby
Doo movie. Is this why nobody seems to know whether there will be a third one
yet or not? Thanks for the info, and keep on solving the mysteries!
Velma: FP and SMG both were somewhat
reluctant to do another, Mathew was ok with the idea, but the real problem was that Warner didn't
feel like they made enough money on the last one. Jinkies! I mean, Why
did they release it in the slow season??
Tab Writes: Are you afraid of any ghosts ? where were you born ? What is your
favorite Colors ? What schools did you attend ?
Velma: Sometimes, Coolsville, Orange (Can
you tell?), and Coolsville High for starters!
Mlle. Dinkley Asks: I know this is old news, but I wanted to hear your opinion. What's your take on the Harvard
President's comment that women may not be suited to the fields of science and mathematics?
Velma: I think anytime a stereotype is cast, people are
hurt by it. Everyone should be able to pursue their dreams. If someone
judges you unsuitable for this career or that, based on anything but
your own abilities, they have done you and society a monumental
|Haley Writes: Dear Velma ,Thank you for posting my questions on the February issue
of Ask Velma! I absolutely love the show Scooby Doo, Where are you. It's
awesome! The only reason that I noticed was because on the 7th of April, I checked your
web site for the info. Anyway, I just wanted to ask you, Why would a clown at
your fifth birthday ruin your encyclopedia set? That is really
question and comment .First, the question, My mom was born on May 23,1965.Where
you born the same day? Just wondering. Now, the comments.#1.Your orange sweater
is so cool that I want one so bad, where can I find it? Comment #2.Why don't you
go out with Shaggy? He's really cute. (wink, wink). And , I need advice, What can I do about making brand new friends? No one likes
me at my school and they make fun of me because I like you so much. And that my
style of clothes is stupid. I hate people like that! Don't you too? What should I
do to get cool clothes, friends, and the thing I want the most...
Please post my questions in May. Thanks! Your biggest fan, Haley
Velma: Thanks for watching the show Haley!
May 23rd is not my birthday, and yes, wrecking my set of encyclopedias
was VERY rude! As for making friends, just be yourself. True
friends have to like you for who you are. My cloths are a little
out of style so I have been trying new outfits anyway. As for
||Maile (my-lee) Writes: Ok, I wear glasses and I was wondering how long have you worn glasses? And when did you get your glasses? Sometimes glasses really bother me a lot and it can get annoying at times. Well, send back!
Velma: Since before I could walk! (or should I
say, walk into walls.) If I remember correctly, I got my first glasses
at age 3. For the most part they do not bother me. Perhaps
"sometimes" is a good description.
carmen Writes: Dear Velma, I have a serious problem, and
question. I have a 3 yr old niece who is so infatuated with you, she pretends your her imaginary friend. Well to a point she is driving us insane. She would love to join a fan club of yours and receive mail. please help we have to pretend to look for you
everywhere we go, and sometimes it gets crazy, today she thought you were in jail, and wanted us to go find out. she even said to look for you in the paper, the
Velma paper .. I guess it's all in the imagination. she thinks you left her, and wants to
apologize it is so cute.. help me with her before she is committed lol. thanks, aunt ang
Velma: What a perplexing problem. I can
assure you I am not in jail. (Although, we did spend a few moments there
over Valentines day.) I am sure she will outgrow this. Most kids have
such friends at that age. WB has a newsletter which is as close to
Scooby News as I can come up with, although they do not publish on a
regular date. Good luck!
|leigh Asks: in the scooby doo movie, in the deleted scenes, you sing a song what
is the name of the song ?
Velma: You're just too good to be true, Can't take my
eyes off of you..... Oops! Sorry, got carried away for a
second! Now, what was the question?
||coolgirl Writes: Hi again and thanks for answering.
Hmmm.. I wonder why they cut the
engagement thing. Oh well. Anyway, I saw Aloha Scooby Doo. It was funny you guys
are really great. What's the next animated Scooby Doo movie? Thanx
and I were both surprised at the script change! As for the
next one out, WB
has been assembling composites of some of our old shows. You can
be one of the first to find out when we have new movies coming out
by checking out
this site every now and then!
|jreb Writes: Hey there again Velma: Ok now just one question? While Shaggy & Scooby
where at summer camp what was Fred, Daphne,& yourself doing? Did you guys have
the weekend off?
Velma: Actually, it was a very quiet week and we all got a lot
of rest. I am beginning to wonder if it is the two of them that
attract all those ghosts, ghouls, and other unsavory characters we always
Jabber Writes: Not really a question merely a compliment-- Velma, you rock! Your
simple fashion and down to earth style is what makes YOU shine... Your keen
intellect is to be envied by all... and your very analytical problem solving
skills are priceless! Keep up the great work. By the way (in case you didn't
notice): I've had a big crush on you ever since I was a little boy!
Velma: (Blush) Why, Thank you!
|Amy lou Asks: Are Shaggy and Scooby really
Velma: I would tell you but they might peck me...
Dear Velma, I was wondering, at what point in time did you guys officially become Mystery
Inc.? (using that title for the gang) Or is that what other people call you? When was it
declare by any of the gang that that was the name of you all?
Thank you very much for your time.
||Velma: Wow, it wasn't long
after we got together that people started calling us
"Mysteries Inc." But we never accepted it as our name.
Problem was, they never stopped, so somewhere along the line, we
started accepting it. When we were in our later teens, we started
putting that on our note pads, and when asked who we were, we
started to say "Mysteries Inc!" (It was easier than
saying Fred, Daphne, Shaggy, Scooby, and me, Velma!)
||Well guys, I am afraid Scooby
and the gang are carrying me off for our usual summer schedule of mystery
I'll be back in the fall to answer all your questions,
but until then, try to stay cool and out of the summer sun!
Bye for now,
