Why not? Fox gave us several years of Batman Minus Batman.

\It was Fox, right? I didn't watch it.
\\Hell, just make it dark and depressing like so much other crap and call it Scooby Doo After Scooby Doo.

"Mindy Kaling project called 'Velma' because she was excited to re-imagine what Scooby-Doowould be..."


OOOOOH BOY, knowing Kaling whole schtick she'll just use it as a vehicle where EVERY good looking guy in the series is either plowing her, about to plow her, or looking to plow her. That's what she does.

Not the Velma we deserve, but the Velma we need.

or something like that.

I like Mindy and all, but at that point why doesn't she just make up her own character and go with that?  Why after all those changes and subtractions and omissions does it have to still be Velma?

Well, at least reading that (I actually did this time) I learned that Shaggy's last name is "Rogers".  So that's good.

I noticed that early in her projects. My reaction was, "BRILLIANT!!" Good for her.

Look it up

The answer is out there on the Internet and it's art.

Kaling is a fine comic writer and smart enough to know that 'based on Velma from Scooby Doo' will get a lot more press than 'based on Mindy Kaling's idea.'

Asian or white isn't the issue for me. The issue is that they are taking the character out of that world entirely. That doesn't make any sense.

This is stupid.  Velma as a stand alone character? ok. An east asian detective nerd girl? ok.  But combining the two ideas to try and get scooby doo fans without actually having scooby farking doo!?  No, fark you. Rename it or find room for scoob.

This is kind of like that one movie where they reimagined Charles Foster Kane as a toy cowboy trying to get back home to his boy Andy while learning the true meaning of friendship.

Not a huge fan of her, but I hope she's not getting painted into a "be funny AND ethnic" corner.

My family has been here several generations.  Brand new white t-shirts look dark on me.
But Mindy Kaling is whiter and more American than me.

/And that should be her wheelhouse.

I am fine with reimagining characters to reflect the actual diversity of society. Whatever that She-Ra thing was? Looks great.

I am annoyed by Hollywood reimagining nostalgia IP and retaining only the name. Don't try to trick people into spending money then accuse them of gate keeping when they complain that the essence of the character is gone. Create new characters.

It's hard to say at this point that this is the latter, but I just have the feeling that this project exists solely on the strength of Velma's costume trending in cosplay/porn.

Eh, I'd rather writers put out a good show than release a guaranteed 22 episodes of average/middling content each year.

Change of race. No big deal as if the show started now instead of half century ago it would probably would have been mixed race anyways.  And I can see either going without the mystery machine or the dog.  But both, no way. There comes a point where the only thing the characters have in common is the name.

Maybe they could have Speed Buggy. Or Charlie Chan and the Chan Clan. Or Mr T and the T Team. Or Captain Caveman and his Sloots. Or Jabberjaw and his Chums.

FTA: "Not for children, but we have a Mindy Kaling project called 'Velma' because she was excited to re-imagine what Scooby-Doo would be like if Velma were of East Asian descent and lived in a different world."

No Scooby and they're on another planet. Congratulations Mindy, you mostly described Josie and the Pussycats in Outer Space:
