This is NOT a kids show! I repeat, NOT a kids show. There’s adult topics (sex, drugs, etc), graphic – if not animated – violence, and some well-timed cursing.
I’m not an adult who still watches cartoons (not judging, you do you), but this looks pretty hilarious because of it’s obvious parody of the people who are likely to complain about it.
The official series description reads as follows:
VELMA is an adult animated comedy series telling the origin story of Velma Dinkley, the unsung and under appreciated brains of the Scooby-Doo Mystery Inc. gang. This original and humorous spin unmasks the complex and colorful past of one of America’s most beloved mystery solvers.
Velma premiers today on HBO Max.
