The 20-second promo finds Supernatural‘s Winchester boys, Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles), sucked into a magical TV and turned into cartoons. They enter the animated world of the classic Hanna-Barbera cartoon — more specifically in the 1970 Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! episode A Night of Fright Is No Delight. Before they meet up with the Scooby gang, Dean (being Dean) declares to Sam, “Dibs on Daphne!”
Showrunner Robert Singer told Entertainment Weekly, “Once they get over their amazement at being in the cartoon, two things happen. They say, ‘We’ve been in a situation like this before with the Trickster and I think we’re supposed to play this out. And then they realise they’re in a Scooby-Doo cartoon, which makes Dean incredibly excited because Scooby-Doo was his favourite cartoon growing up.”
Co-showrunner Andrew Dabb added: “Dean came of age in a time before the internet when Daphne wasn’t so bad. Dean has very strong opinions on all the Scooby characters, but especially Daphne and Fred.”
The crossover episode was announced last year and is one of the most highly anticipated episodes on network television in the US this year.
Although it’s a Scooby-Doo cartoon episode, Dabb promised it “gets pretty dark” Supernatural-style.
ScoobyNatural airs on 29 March on the CW. Supernatural is currently in its 13th season.
