Scooby-Doo Caracters: Velma Dinkley
Velma's Character biographyVelma is the most intelligent in the group and often makes great use of her skills in such areas as reading Chinese, deciphering scientific formulae, operating communications equipment, and so forth. A running gag of the series is Velma's trouble with keeping her glasses on her face (usually from being accidentally knocked off of her face while being chased by the villain), as she is very nearsighted. When Scooby and Shaggy are too afraid to volunteer for a mission (which tends to be most of the time), Velma often offers him a dog treat called a "Scooby Snack" as a bribe. Another somewhat running gag is that she is actually stronger than she appears, often able to carry Shaggy and Scooby in her arms and still be able to run. And on occasions she's able to carry Daphene and Freddy too, managing to carry all four, still able to run, and mysteriously know where she is going all at the same time.
Velma is recognized by her famous orange sweater and glasses.
When the gang splits up, Velma usually goes off with Fred and
Daphne but sometimes goes with Shaggy and Scooby. As far as
the group dynamic goes, Velma is usually the one who solves
the mystery, while Fred sets up the trap to catch the ghost.
Relatives of Velma shown during the series' run include:
Mr. and Mrs. Dinkley: Velma's parents.
