Next week’s installment of The CW’s veteran hit ‘Supernatural’ will be a special event. The episode, entitled ‘Scoobynatural’ is mostly animated by Warner Brothers Animation and features Dean and Sam Winchester along with their angelic ally Castiel teaming up with Scooby-Doo and the Mystery Inc. gang. Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki and Misha Collins will not only appear in live action but will voice their cartoon counterparts. They are joined by the voice actors that normally voice the Scooby characters in various projects– Grey DeLisle as Daphne Blake, Matthew Lillard as Shaggy, Kate Micucci as Velma Dinkley, and Frank Welker as Fred Jones and Scooby-Doo. Regular ‘Supernatural’ director Robert Singer helmed this special episode, which was based on a script by James Krieg and Jeremy Adams.
While ‘Scooby-Doo’ was a Saturday morning staple, things take a twist when the Winchesters and Cas arrive and the animated characters are shown to actually be able to die. As Dean exclaims, “Scooby-Doo could die! That’s not happening! Not on my watch! I’d take a bullet for that dog.” That’s not even the saltiest bit of dialogue. As the Scooby gang cries out “Jinkies!” and “Zoinks!,” Dean shouts “Son of a bitch!”
The CW has released a new extended trailer for ‘Scoobynatural’ which you can watch below:
‘Supernatural’ was created by Eric Kripke, who has since moved on to NBC’s series ‘Timeless’, but that isn’t to say he no longer has connections to ‘Supernatural’. He has seen the animated segments of ‘Scoobynatural’ and this was his reaction:
“I haven’t seen the live-action bookends yet, but I did get slipped all the animated stuff, which I have seen… and it’s amazing! It’s so awesome! As a kid who grew up on Scooby-Doo, it’s one of the moments in my career where I’m, like, genuinely starstruck. I cannot believe the show I created is crossing over with something as iconic as Scooby-Doo. I’ve been around a while now, but this one really blew me away. This was truly amazing.”
“I think what people aren’t expecting is how subversive an episode it is. It’s not just like a typical, goofy Scooby-Doo episode. It’s way more an episode of Supernatural, where it really pokes fun at the Scooby-Doo format itself. There’s some really fun meta stuff.”
‘Scoobynatural’ premiers on Thursday, March 29, at 8 pm EST on the CW.
