Who says you can’t be serious and funny? In 2010, I picked the 15 funniest episodes of Supernatural, and after more than four years, I’ve decided to do it again with 15 more laugh-out-loud adventures of Sam and Dean, mostly new episodes and a few older ones I left off of the original list. Here are 15 more of the most hilarious episodes of the CW drama Supernatural.
#16 “Swap Meat”
Season 5, Episode 12
Jared Padalecki got to show off his comedic side in this episode where a teenage boy swapped bodies with Sam, creating weirdly funny moments of Sam enjoying fruity cocktails and awkwardly hitting on chicks.
#15 “Hunteri Heroici”
Season 8, Episode 8
The show got weird and funny in this episode that featured cartoon-style deaths. It was like a surreal acid trip, particularly when Cas came face-to-face with a talking cat.
#14 “The Curious Case of Dean Winchester”
Season 5, Episode 7
Dean as an old man? That premise delivered on the comedy as he refused to stop his burger-eating, womanizing ways.
#13 “The Monster at the End of This Book”
Season 4, Episode 18
The first supremely meta episode, this hour introduced Chuck Shurley and the Supernatural book series. It’s hard not to laugh when Sam and Dean are literally reading about their lives as the events are happening.
#12 “Fan Fiction”
Season 10, Episode 5
The 200th episode found Sam and Dean coming across an all-female stage musical about their lives. The songs were funny, Dean’s angry reaction to singing was funny and the fact that the actresses playing Dean and Cas were a lesbian couple was especially funny.
#11 “Shut Up, Dr. Phil”
Season 7, Episode 5
All of the comedy in this episode was due to the brilliant guest stars James Marsters and Charisma Carpenter as a pair of bickering, married witches. The combination of petty marital arguments and powerful witchcraft was great.
Season 9, Episode 15
The Ghostfacers are always good for a laugh or two, and this episode that turned into a Scream parody was no exception as they tried to prove the existence of an urban legend.
#9 “Party On, Garth”
Season 7, Episode 18
A monster that you can only see when you’re drunk? That’s definitely funny, as is D.J. Qualls as the ridiculously eager Hunter Garth.
#8 “Season Seven, Time for a Wedding! ”
Season 7, Episode 8
You know it’s going to be a funny episode of Supernatural if it features superfan Becky or Hunter Garth, so an episode with both, in which Becky uses magic to become Mrs. Sam Winchester, was doubly hilarious.
#7 “The Girl with the Dungeons and Dragons Tattoo”
Season 7, Episode 20
Felicia Day’s lesbian hacker Charlie Bradbury is an adorkable breath of fresh air on Supernatural, adding comedic commentary to the boys’ typically dramatic adventures. Her first appearance featured plenty of comedy, most notably the scene where Dean had to talk her through flirting with a guy.
#6 “LARP and the Real Girl”
Season 8, Episode 11
It’s always funny to see Sam and Dean in unlikely situations, and having to don medieval outfits for live-action role-playing certainly qualifies. The Braveheart ending was particularly great.
#5 “Clap Your Hands If You Believe…”
Season 6, Episode 9
What started as a pitch-perfect X-Files parody about aliens quickly turned into an episode about fairies, with tons of funny moments like Dean being arrested for hate crimes after begging Sam to “fight the fairies.”
#4 “Yellow Fever”
Season 4, Episode 6
A disease turned Dean into a coward, and the result was one of Jensen Ackles’ funniest performances ever. From his high-pitched scream after seeing a cat (“That was scary!”) to his long-winded rant about how stupid they are for chasing after monsters, Ackles was on fire. It’s also the episode that featured him lip-syncing to “Eye of the Tiger,” which was just awesome.
#3 “Dog Dean Afternoon”
Season 9, Episode 5
Dean mind-melded with a dog and took on many canine traits, thus resulting in an endless parade of hysterical moments. It was the kind of ridiculous premise that could only work on this show, and which only Jensen Ackles could pull off so flawlessly. When Supernatural ends, he could definitely have a career in comedy.
#2 “The French Mistake”
Season 6, Episode 15
This meta wonderland was all about the comedy as Sam and Dean were transported to a world where they were Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles, stars of a TV show called Supernatural. From Misha Collins’ tweet obsession to the death of Eric Kripke to Jared’s real-life wife (and former Ruby) Genevieve Padalecki appearing as herself, every single second was hysterical.
