What’s better than the Winchesters and Co. fighting their usual demons? Sam, Dean and Castiel becoming cartoons and battling baddies alongside the iconic Scooby-Doo gang in Season 13’s animated episode!

“The French Mistake”

I always loved the creativity of the meta episodes, and my favorite was “The French Mistake” from Season 6. The boys find themselves on the set of a TV show titled Supernatural, where Dean and Sam have to pretend to be the actors who play them on TV (Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki and Misha Collins, above). It’s hilarious, and a fun look from the other side of the camera.

“Fan Fiction”

The 200th episode was a clever love letter to the show’s fandom, set at a girls’ school’s performance of Supernatural: The Musical (from left: Alyssa Lynch, Ackles, Padalecki and Natalie Sharp). I can only chuckle, recalling the goofy self-references and amusing nods to fan-favorite ’ships, capped off by a lovely rendition of SPN’s unofficial theme song, Kansas’ “Carry On Wayward Son.” Bravo!


Great brother moments (Ackles, left), the Impala and a monster hunt—all in one unique package. What other show could tell an entire episode from a car’s perspective?
