Jinkies! Sam, Dean, and Cas are about to go where no episode of SUPERNATURAL has gone before -- into the classic, animated world of SCOOBY-DOO!
When a gifted television transports the boys into the cartoon world of SCOOBY-DOO, the Winchesters will cross paths with the Scooby gang and their famous Mystery Machine. After claiming to be "mystery solvers" themselves, the boys team up with Fred, Daphne, Velma, Shaggy, and Scooby-Doo to solve a ghostly mystery. Whereas Sam isn't amused with their predicament of being stuck in a zany cartoon reality, Dean finds himself right at home, chowing down on massive sandwiches with Shaggy and Scooby, and making a play for Daphne's affections.
Fans weren't the only ones excited since initial news of the season 13 crossover broke last May. The cast and producers have really enjoyed the experience of exploring uncharted territory for the veteran show.
As reported by Entertainment Weekly's Samantha Highfill:
The bulk of the credit for this episode goes to Warner Bros. Animation. Everything we gave them, they elevated,” co-showrunner Andrew Dabb says. “There were no disappointments for me here. This is one of the few episodes of Supernatural I can watch and just be a fan of because it feels like someone else took the material and made it into something really, really great. It was a weird absurd swing for us but I think it worked and people are going to really like it.
It feels like a really good episode of Supernatural that the Scooby-Doo people happen to be in. It doesn’t feel like we’re mortgaging the show to make it fit into the Scooby-Doo world. It really clicked together in a way that we think is very special.” Co-showrunner Robert Singer adds, “It was terrific right from the beginning. That said, having seen the animation, it’s actually better than I would’ve hoped. We had a really good time recording the voices last spring and the guys were just so into it and in a way, we’re changing their performance of what their characters were to fit the cartoon mold, but everybody embraced it right from the beginning and it came out really well.
