Sarah Michelle Gellar Reveals Missing Scene From Scooby-Doo Movie


It is well known that the first Scooby-Doo movie, written by James Gunn of Guardians of the Galaxy, is a culture classic but did YOU know it was originally intended to be an adult comedy when it was scripted and shot. However by the end of production, it was changed into a family-friendly activity, albeit some mature content was retained to appeal to both children and adults.

During a question and answer session on ‘Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen’, actress Sarah Michelle Gellar discussed one scene that was removed from the final film in which her character Daphne shared an onscreen kiss with Velma played by Linda Cardellini.

While on the show she said:

“I don’t know about a relationship on the side, but there was a steamy kiss. Well I said it was steamy, but they probably didn’t think it was. Hence it was cut. I feel like the world wants to see it, but I don’t know where it is!”

Although it has been claimed that the kiss was captured during the girls’ attempt to reverse the effects during the body swap sequence, Gunn has acknowledged that Velma was clearly a lesbian in his script although this was changed in Scooby Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed when Velma gets with Patrick Wisely (played by Seth Green).

As well as sharing details about this scene removed from the final cut Sarah Michelle Gellar also shared details of another line that was cut from the movie.

“There was a great line too, I’ll never forget. There’s a fight between Daphne and Fred and I yell ‘that ascot makes you look gay!’ and I slam the door, and they cut that too. There’s been an implication for a long time that Fred was interested in both parties, but yeah, all got cut.”

In addition to claiming that there is an R-rated version of the movie, Gunn has previously discussed his intentions for a third live-action movie, and they are fairly bizarre.

“The Mystery Ink gang are hired by a town in Scotland who complain they’re being plagued by monsters but we discover throughout the film the monsters are actually the victims and Scooby & Shaggy have to come to terms with their own prejudices & narrow belief systems,” he tweeted.
