Just what in the hell is a Supernatural and Scooby-Doo crossover supposed to be like? Is it going to be just some one-off special, or will it be incorporated into a Supernatural episode proper? Finally, what will the tone be? As much as the two are similar in that they’re basically solving mysteries, the two couldn’t be more different.
Let’s start with the first question. The episode will start off as a standard Supernatural episode. After working a case, a pawnshop owner offers the Winchesters a free TV as a thanks to them. Of course, this TV isn’t a normal one, and when all said and done, they get sucked into a Scooby-Doo cartoon — and not just some made-up episode either — the episode “A Night of Fright is No Delight” from Scooby-Doo, Where Are You?.
But don’t think things will play out exactly like in that episode. In addition to Sam and Dean now being involved, there is a Supernatural being at work.
“Once they get over their amazement at being in the cartoon, two things happen,” co-showrunner Robert Singer told EW. “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 realize they’re in a Scooby-Doo cartoon, which makes Dean incredibly excited because Scooby-Doo was his favorite cartoon growing up.”
Now what about the tone? Thanks to the aforementioned Supernatural element, don’t expect this to be a case of a man in a mask, as Singer states.
“It gets pretty dark. There are things you wouldn’t see in a regular Scooby-Doo cartoon.”
Co-showrunner Andrew Dabb goes on to say that, “They walk into an old episode of Scooby-Doo. But it may end up being a new episode of Supernatural.”
