The CW has released the promo, which you can see above, for the Supernatural and Scooby-Doo crossover episode, “ScoobyNatural.”
The description for the episode is “Jinkies! Supernatural gets animated when Sam, Dean, and Castiel are transported into the world of Scooby-Doo – Sam (Jared Padalecki), Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Castiel (Misha Collins) are transported into the animated world of Scooby-Doo where they join forces with the Scooby gang to solve a ghostly mystery.”
Earlier this week, EW released some pictures for the episode, and the images re-imagined Winchester brothers in the iconic Hanna-Barbera style alongside spooky investigators Daphne, Velma, Fred, Shaggy and talking dog Scooby-Doo.
The episode, which will be half live-action and half animated, will be transporting the monster-hunting duo into an actual Scooby-Doo ‘toon — which just so happened to be Dean’s favorite childhood show.
Co-showrunner Andrew Dabb said the idea of an animated episode was kicked around the Supernatural writer’s room as far back as season 4, but it wasn’t until a pitch from Jeremy Adams — who is the episode’s co-writer — that things started to click.
“Andrew [Dabb] knew some guys over at Warner Bros. Animation and they floated this idea. We took it to Warner Bros. and asked, ‘What do you think?’ and everybody got really excited about it,” said executive producer and ‘ScoobyNatural’ director Robert Singer, who called the episode “one of our bigger swings.”
“We’re really excited about it. I’m pretty confident people are going to like it,” Singer said last summer, during the episode’s early stages.
“It’s a long process… We’ve been talking about it for years and we’ve finally able to pull it off.”
The episode is premiering on March 29th on the CW or if you’re going to PaleyFest on the 20th, you’ll get to see it early.
