For the record, I did watch Scooby-Doo as a kid, but I don't remember it all that much. The theme song came back to me pretty fast though. So I watched this episode that 13x16 was based on as a sort of refresher for the SPN episode. Check it out if you'd like...
The episode is based on the 1969 first season episode of Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! "A Night of Fright Is No Delight".

LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!! So much LOVE for this episode!!!! Been looking forward to it for months and it totally didn't disappoint. It was totally FUN! A perfect blend of the two shows, of the old with the new.
+ The Dean Cave! And I love Dean's love of vinyl records. Me, too, Dean....Me, too! :D
+ Dean going after Daphne and her totally not getting it.
+ Velma going ga-ga for Sam and his "broad shoulders".
+ Dean being super protective of the Scooby gang and wanting to keep them innocent.
+ The boys fighting the giant dinosaur plushy at the beginning. We finally got our S13 dino! LOL
+ Dean challenging Fred & the Mystery Machine to a race w/the Impala...and losing! The light was green, btw.
+ Velma dipping & kissing Sam!
+ The great details the animators put into Sam & Dean that the boys do all the time, like Sam's bitch face and Dean's arching eyebrow.
My only (minor) complaints?
There were a lot of instances where the boys in the animation were the same height. Or even where Dean looked taller than Sam. LOL Kinda funny, but oh, so noticeable.
And since when can Cas heal anyone this season? He couldn't revive the dead bank security guard that Jack accidentally killed, but now he can fix Shaggy's broken arm? Maybe it was that whole being-in-a-cartoon effect. Like the Impala magically being there because Dean had the keys in his pocket?
I'm giving this ep an A+!
Bring on the next one!
Sam: What the hell was that? I mean, we rolled into town because people were seeing a lizard monster. And yes, we tracked it back here, but no way did I think we'd end up --
Dean: Killing Barney?
Dean: Dude, it's over. All right? Be like Elsa -- Let it go.
Dean: Behold... The Dean-cave. Or Fortress of Dean-a-tude. Just -- still trying to figure that one out. We got foosball. We've got jukebox -- all vinyl, obviously. Double La-Z-Boy recliners. And, of course, the bar. Still a work-in-progress. It's gonna have a kegerator because... Well, it's gotta. And finally... the pièce de résistance.
Sam: This is, uhh... You saw that light. D-did we just get sucked into the TV?
Dean: Or maybe this is just an angel thing. Or -- or the Trickster.
Sam: No, he's dead.
Dean: Or is he?
Dean: Oh my God.
Sam: That -- that -- that -- that's, uh, that's...
Dean: That's the Mystery Machine. We're not just in any cartoon.
Sam: We're in Scooby-Doo!
Sam: Great. So we're stuck in a cartoon with a talking dog.
Dean: Not just any talking dog, the talking dog. The greatest talking dog in history. Now come on! Dibs on Daphne.
Dean: Oh, man. This is like a dream come true.
Sam: Your dream is hang out with the Scooby Gang?
Dean: Sam, growing up on the road, no matter where Dad dragged us, no matter what we did, there was always a TV. And you know what was always on that TV? Scooby and the gang. These guys, they're our friggin' role models, man. Except Fred, he's a wad.
Sam: He's... What?
Dean: Just think about it -- we do the same thing. We go to spooky places, we solve mysteries, we fight ghosts.
Sam: Yeah, except our ghosts don't wear masks, and we don't have a talking dog.
Dean: I don't know. I mean, Cas is kinda like a talking dog.
Sam: There are no words in this newspaper, Dean. We should be trying to get out of here and instead you -- you're hanging out with Marmaduke.
Dean: How dare you!
Sam: And hitting on Daphne, when she's clearly with Fred.
Dean: She's is settling, all right? Oh, Daphne could do so much better.
Sam: Um, so, if that guy can die for real in this cartoon, that means we can, too.
Dean: It doesn't matter if we die. Scooby-Doo could die! And that's not happening, not on my watch. I'd take a bullet for that dog.
Castiel: Sam? Dean? I'm back from Syria with fruit from the Tree of Life. The tree was guarded by a pack of djinn. I killed most of them, bargained with the rest. Think I'm... technically married to their queen now.
Sam: Look, I'm not supposed to tell you this, but ghosts are real.
Sam: My brother and I, we hunt them, along with werewolves and vampires and demons and... We've saved the world. A lot.
Velma: Look, Sam, the simple fact is monsters are nothing more than crooks in masks -- usually unscrupulous real estate developers.
Sam: One, there are way better real estate scams. And two...
Dean: Son of a bitch!
Shaggy: Like, man, I guess that leaves me and old Scoob with you, Castiel.
Castiel: Wonderful. I once led armies, and now I'm paired with a scruffy philistine and a talking dog.
Sam: Look that isn't a guy in a mask or a costume. It's a vengeful spirit that's come back from the dead.
Dean: that's the truth.
Velma: So everything you told me, it's true?
Velma: Werewolves, vampires, demons? I thought I was blind without my glasses, but I was just blind. Oh, how could I be so stupid?
Sam: Uh, well, I mean...
Fred: We've been stopping real estate developers when we could have been hunting Dracula? Are you kidding me? My life is meaningless!
Daphne: If there are ghosts... that means there's an afterlife. Heaven. Hell. Am I going to Hell?!
Shaggy: We told you every freaking time. But did you ever listen to Scoob and me? No!
Scooby: We're doomed.
Dean: All right, knock it off! Come on! Scooby Gang does not have nervous breakdowns. Now you guys may not have tangled with the supernatural, but you've fought monsters, real freakin' psychos. Well, you stopped Zeke and Zeb. Shaggy figured out that the sharks Old Iron Face rode were really just torpedoes disguised to look like sharks. And what about the Black Knight? Huh? Mamba Wamba?
Sam: The Space Kook.
Dean: I knew it! You love this show, too. Space Kook. Ghost Clown. Miner 49er. You guys have all jumped into danger with no thought to yourselves. You're heroes, and together, we're gonna take down this phantom. Are you with me?
Fred: Dean we've gotta do something. I mean, you guys are amazing!
Dean: Thank you, Fred.
Fred: But we can help. We have to.
Dean: F^#%ing right you can. You're gonna do what you do best -- build a trap.
Sam: Okay. That was... something.
Dean: That was the coolest thing that's ever happened to me. And that includes the Cartwright twins.
Castiel: What did you do with the Cartwright twins?
Dean: Oh....ha heh... I'll be right back.
Sam: I don't think I wanna know.
Sam: Ha! Velma was right. It was a shady real estate developer after all.
Jay: It's not fair. I would've gotten away with it if it wasn't for those meddling kids.
Dean: He said it! He said the line! Scooby Dooby Do!
Sam: What are you doing?
Dean: Well, I mean at the end of every mystery, Scooby looks at the camera and says--
Castiel: Dean, you're not a talking dog.
Dean: I know that. I... No, but come on, I-I do look cool in the ascot, right? No? Guys? Come on guys. Look, red is my color!
