If you think about , "I'd have gotten away with it, too, if it was for you meddling Winchesters!" actually has a nice ring to it. Go one, let it roll around in your head and you'll see what I mean. In fact, Supernatural fans might want to start getting used to the sound of that now, as show producer Jim Michaels took to Twitter to tease the beginning of production on the show's animated crossover with Scooby-Doo and The Mystery Machine.
In his tweet, Michaels included a production photo that revealed the crossover will take place during the 16th episode of the season, entitled "Scoobynatural." Robert Singer is set to direct, and executive produce the episode alongside Michaels, Andrew Dabb and Phil Sgriccia. Michaels also included the following message: "Time to tech survey in the Mystery Machine! Episode 16! @cw_supernatural #supernatural #spnfamily". The page shows The Winchesters' Impala parked in front of a burning home, though it's still unclear if that image relates to the script or if it is just a cover image.

Back in May 2017, Supernatural stars Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki revealed at The CW's Upfront presentation that there would be a "colorful" episode during the show's 13th season; and that it would taking place in the "fully animated world of Scooby-Doo." Flash ahead to October 2017, when executive producer Brad Buckner gave an update on the project when speaking with TV Line; calling the episode "charming and very funny" and adding: "There's a certain amount of expertise [by] a certain brother about what Scooby world is. We have fun with that."
With a once in a lifetime (depending on the ratings) crossover like this about to take place, it begs a question that is at the core of this episode: what's faster — Dean's beloved Impala or the Mystery Machine? Padalecki is playing his cards close, offering up only this in response: "You'll get a chance to see. Depends who's driving it, I guess."
