Early life

Velma grew up with the rest of the gang in Coolsville,[1] attending Coolsville High together.[2]

In their travels, they gained another member in Scooby-Doo's nephew, Scrappy-Doo, until they got sick of him and left him in the middle of the desert.[2]

Scooby-Doo (film)

The gang were hired to catch the Luna Ghost at the Wow-O Toy Factory. After the case was solved, Fred Jones took credit in front of the press, which upset Velma, so she quit the group, as did Fred and Daphne Blake, leaving Shaggy Rogers and Scooby-Doo alone with the Mystery Machine.[2]
