Announced nearly a year ago, the March 29 episode brings Sam Winchester (Jared Padalecki), Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles) and Castiel (Misha Collins) from their live-action world to the animated universe of Mystery Inc. Specifically, they’re transported into the 1970 episode of Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! “A Night of Fright Is No Delight.” However, as we see from the image of a bloody body, the expected high jinks turn dark pretty quickly.
This being Supernatural, the Winchester brothers are of course aware they’re in an episode of Scooby-Doo, which will no doubt lead to them living out some childhood fantasies, such as Dean attempting to romance Daphne. It will also allow them to participate in some cartoon tropes … such as Dean consuming a comically oversized sandwich alongside Shaggy and Scooby.
The Scooby Gang was introduced in 1969 in Hanna-Barbera’s Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!, the classic Saturday-morning cartoon that has spawned scores of spinoffs, and just as many imitators, in the decades since — not to mention two live-action theatrical films and two live-action TV movies. Scooby-Doo and the other Hanna-Barbera properties are owned by Warner Bros., the parent company of Supernatural producer Warner Bros. Television.
The longest-running show now on The CW, Supernatural is in its 13th season, and shows little sign of slowing down. “Scoobynatural” debuts Wednesday, March 29, at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
