Marcie’s connection to Velma in Scooby-Doo explained
Growing up with Scooby, Shaggy, Daphne, Velma and Fred was truly a joy. Roam the Mystery Machine and unmask the monsters? What a childhood treat. Such a treat, in fact, that most fans weren’t willing to give up the experience just because they got old.
Indeed, a lot of people revisit nostalgic classics like Zombie Island every now and then, especially around the spooky season. To celebrate this October, you might also want to dive into Trick or Treat Scooby-Doo, the latest animated adventure from Mystery Inc.
Deadline reports that the film confirms that Velma is, in fact, LGBTQ, although more than a handful of fans would tell you that was known before the film.
Why? Well, Marcia from Scooby Doo makes quite the argument…
It explained Marcia’s connection to Velma in Scooby-Doo
Marcie – also known as Hot Dog Water – was voiced by Linda Cardellini and was a character present throughout Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated, which premiered on Cartoon Network back in 2010.
She was established as a former rival turned friend of Velma.
However, SBS reports that producer Tony Cervone later confirmed that she also had a romantic interest in Velma in an Instagram post.
“I’ve said it before, but Velma in Mystery Incorporated is not bi,” he wrote. “He’s gay.” We always planned for Velma to be a little out of character and out of character when she was dating Shaggy because the relationship was bad for her and she had an unspoken problem with why.”
This leads to Velma’s romantic connection to Marcie: “There are hints as to why in that mermaid episode, and when you watch the whole Marcia arc, it seems as clear as we did 10 years ago.”
The romantic sparks between the two are apparently clear going back to episodes, but Tony suggests that they weren’t able to explicitly address their relationship while working on the show.
“Velma had Marcie in Scooby Doo Mystery Incorporated”
Some fans jumped on Twitter in response to the recent discussions about Velma’s sexuality and acknowledged her relationship with Marcie.
Check out a selection of tweets:
Very LGBTQ in Trick or Treat Scooby Doo
A revealing moment occurs when Velma comments on an enemy named Coco Diablo (voiced by Myrna Velasco)
She says Coco has “incredible glasses” and an “amazing turtleneck” before blushing and her glasses fogging up. It’s probably the most visible example of Velma being portrayed as LGBTQ in the property’s canon.
