-Mindy Kalings 'Velma' animated series is looking to make a big change to the character.
-Velma will now be depicted as being of East Asian descent.
-But even bigger and more importantly, they are plucking Velma out of the Scooby Doo universe and will have it where Scooby, Shaggy, Daphne, and Fred don't even exist.
-Begs the question "why make a Velma series without any of the scooby gang?"
Should've just created a totally original character
