Scooby-Doo spinoff “Velma” fails as it goes Woke

22 01 2023

Scooby-Doo, a childhood favorite from the 1980s, has been remade for an adult audience. According to FoxNews, the Scooby-Doo spinoff “Velma” is supposed to tell the story of one of the main characters Velma Dinkely and is full of adult-themed scenes such as limb hacking, the character going to strip clubs, and high school sex and lesbian kiss. As a result, there has been an immediate and spontaneous outpouring of wailing and scoffing. The audience score on Rotten Tomatoes is less than 50%, and the IMDB history score is a paltry 1.3 out of 10 stars, with viewer comments so damning that Velma’s official Youtube channel has turned off the comment sections.

Why is there such a commotion? It should be obvious that people live their lives as they think, and their works reflect their thinking. That is why it is critical to think right and live according to the right values because everything you do will reflect your inner thoughts. Thus, people writing scripts for big studios like Disney or Pixar and others are thinking woke, and thus writing woke scripts, but can you blame them? If they truly believe woke is right and lesbianism is good, it is unavoidable that this will come out in their work; no one can help it. You live the way you think, and what you love eventually manifests itself in your works.

The fact that Velma shows have bombed and received negative reviews is relevant, but more so is the question of who will fill the yawning demand for wonderful classic cartoons that have all the proper virtues but none of the wokeness. Millions of kids are crying out for artists with brilliant ideas and non-woke film directors to fill the void left by the 80s cartoons they grew up on. No one should be shocked that woke cartoonists are filling the vacuum with their ridiculous woke ideas if the classic intellectuals are too lazy or unmotivated to rise to the needs of the people.

Instead of complaining about the disturbing drift of scriptwriters into woke ideologies, classic writers should buck up and market their own ideas through children’s cartoons. If the world is a free market, there is no reason for governments or authorities to ban woke ideas from the public sphere. Let everyone make what they want, flood the market with good, poor, and ugly options, and let the buyer decide. As the creator of the new Scooby-“Velma” Doo’s found out when the film garnered the worst IMDB rating ever for its woke ideas, the woke won’t save a bad product.

In short, the poor performance of the adult remake of the 1980s Scooby-Doo at the box office proves once again that many people do not like woke movies, and that these people make up a sizable portion of the audience interested in fine classical films and woke movies will continue to garner less and less attention until they eventually fade away on their own once positive content producers take on the job of delivering clear, clean, fun-filled movies.
