Not that we’re counting, but we’re only two days away from The CW’s hotly anticipated Supernatural and Scooby-Doo animated crossover event. To whet our appetite for the meta episode that will see the Winchester brothers get zapped inside a TV and Dean’s favorite cartoon, a new clip and BTS video have been released.
Titled “ScoobyNatural,” the episode will not only see Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) being animated inside a Scooby-Doo episode — where this time ghosts are real (unlike the Hanna-Barbera cartoon) — but they’ll also be joined by Castiel (Misha Collins) and the brothers’ iconic Impala.
In the clip for the episode released via TVLine, Dean introduces himself and his brother Sam to the Scooby Gang as fellow mystery solvers and asks if they can tag along. Fred thinks is a “swell idea,” adding that it's “high-time to hit the road.”
This can only mean one thing: It's also time for Shaggy and Scooby to chomp down on road food; and they’re joined in their (ahem) culinary endeavours by a very enthusiastic Dean. Much to Sam’s complete and utter exasperation.
While Sam accuses Dean of being more interested in hitting on Daphne and “hanging out with Marmaduke” (to which Dean replies with a shocked “how dare you!”) than getting out of their predicament, Dean thinks they just need to play their part the same way they did in the completely bonkers (we’re still laughing to this day, eight seasons on) Season 5 episode “Changing Channels.”
The CW has also unveiled a cool behind-the-scenes featurette boasting some new footage and giving us an inside look at Ackles, Padalecki and Collins in the recording booth and chatting about the episode. It also features interviews with executive producers Andrew Dabb and Robert Singer, writers Jim Krieg and Jeremy Adams, as well as animation director Spike Brandt.
“ScoobyNatural” airs March 29 on The CW. Will you be tuning in?
