     Last week, a well anticipated crossover of two of the most famous monster hunting teams unknowingly joined forces to defeat a new threat. The Winchester brothers from “Supernatural” got sucked into their new TV and into Dean’s favorite childhood cartoon — “Scooby-Doo.”

     Supernatural is currently on its 13th season and has already been approved for season 14. The television action packed drama follows the two Winchester brothers, Sam and Dean, as they travel across the country doing their best to save people, hunt monsters, and continue the “family business.” The show has prospered in its age and expanded its horizons.

     In one of its newest episodes, the Supernatural team has reached out of their comfort zone and outdone themselves with an animated episode in collaboration with “Scooby-Doo,”  titled “ScoobyNatural.” The episode aired on March 29 and people were ecstatic.

     When the fans found out that “Supernatural” was doing a crossover with “Scooby-Doo,” the internet blew up. There were around 28,000 tweets with the hashtag #Scoobynatural. On Tumblr, fans went wild with theories of how the Winchester Brothers ended up in the cartoon world on “Scooby-Doo.” The theories ranged from a certain Angel coming back and transporting them into TV land to the boys finding a cursed object that transported them there.

     The episode was wild from start to finish. It provided some  much needed comic relief for the brothers since they’re always busy saving the world — especially since the episode started with Sam and Dean killing a giant stuffed lizard and the pawn shop owner giving them anything they wanted from the shop for saving his life. Dean, of course, snatched a  flat screen TV.

     When Sam and Dean realize they’ve been zapped into “Scooby-Doo,” Dean was like a kid in a candy shop. “Scooby-Doo” is Dean’s favorite childhood show, so being in it and meeting his favorite childhood icons was a nostalgic experience for him. He even expressed in the beginning of the episode that he would, “Take a bullet for that dog.” As the episode goes on, Dean expresses interest in Daphne, one of the original members of the Scooby Gang who is known as the pretty girl of the Mystery Inc. team.

     While the episode keeps the animation style of the original “Scooby-Doo” series and the plot of the 16th episode from “Scooby-Doo’s” first season, “A Night of Fright is No Delight,” it does add a supernatural twist to it. Instead of the demon typically being a crooked real estate developer, the ghost in this episode was real and lethal. The Winchester bros and Castiel, an Angel that is very close with the brothers and often saves their lives, do their best to keep the Scooby Gang hidden from the truth of the Supernatural world and the beings that exist in it.

     With all the recent turmoil of season 13 and seasons past, it was a relief to see the boys smiling and being able to laugh. This episode was the feel good moment of the season and did a swell job of keeping Scooby-Doo in its original creative form to induce some much needed nostalgia.
