Nobody is able to get rid of the accurate arrows of cupid. Not even Velma, one of the great protagonists of the franchise’Scooby Doo!’, that has fallen in love with one of the villains of the last film of the saga: ‘Trick or Treating Scooby Doo!’
Recently, a clip of ‘Scooby-Doo Trick or Treat!’ in which Velma (Kate Micucci) can be seen falling in love with Coco Diablo (Myrna Velasco), the brilliant leader of the “notable costumed crime syndicate“.
Whether it’s the music, the fogged-up glasses, or Velma’s sudden inability to speak, something tells us the woman is going through something special.
A second clip shows Velma talking about Coco to Daphne (Grey DeLisle), who tells her: “I didn’t know convicts were your type.” Velma tries to act surprised: “My kind? Please!“, but her feelings for Coco are the most obvious. In an effort to resolve any doubts, Velma even says; “Well, who am I kidding? I am in love to the bars, Daphne! What do I do? What do I say?”
