Ahead of the launch of the Velma series on HBO Max, fans were rooting for the Scooby Doo spin-off show. However, after the recent premiere, its reviews have suggested that watchers are disliking it for various reasons, ranging from the animation style to the 'crass' humour and how the iconic characters are shown in it. Velma's negative reviews have been trending on social media and fans are calling it the 'worst TV show ever'. While the Scooby Doo cartoon has been loved by the watchers for its comedy, the 'adult' spin-off version has not gone down well with the fans.

In the trailer, it is hinted how the new show will be a complete departure from the style and humour Scooby Doo is famous for. It will showcase how Velma formed her crew of mystery solvers.
