'Supernatural': 5 Secrets About The Show That'll Blow Your Mind

Creator Eric Kripke recently joined Twitter and shared several fun facts.

Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki have been mesmerizing "Supernatural" fans since the show first debuted back in 2005. Audiences proudly joined Dean and Sam Winchester on their perilous adventures, "saving people, hunting things," and haven't slowed down since Episode 1.

But, without the innovative mind of Eric Kripke, the world would've never met the beloved Winchester brothers. Kripke is the creator of "SPN" and has now finally joined the Twittersphere. His first tweet was on Nov. 5, and since then he's shared various trivia about the beloved CW show.

We rounded up several fun facts he's shared thus far, and like Leviathans, we're hungry for more.

  1. The one and only Bobby Singer almost wasn't a character.

    According to Kripke, "For S1 "Devils Trap" we wanted to bring back Missouri Mosley. But she wasn't available, so I wrote a new character: #BobbySinger." It's impossible to imagine "SPN" without Bobby, so praise Loretta Devine for inadvertently giving us our favorite non-idjit.

  2. Several different sources were the inspiration for the show's pilot, including works by Neil Gaiman.

    Kripke shared this info "in honor of" this week's new episode, which aired Nov. 11. Gaiman's "The Sandman" comic book series and "The Evil Dead" horror film were also inspirations.

  3. The Crossroads demons and our own King of Hell were inspired by Robert Johnson's music.

    The "SPN" creator shared, "As a kid, I was obsessed with #RobertJohnson's music. (Listen to it!) Led to 'Crossroad Blues,' Crossroad Demons, and Crowley!" Considering how "Hellhound On My Trail" and "Me And The Devil Blues" are the names of two of his songs, we can easily see why.

  4. Kripke was supposed to be in the iconic episode "The French Mistake," but there was one major setback.

    He tweeted, "I wanted to play myself in 'French Mistake,' but I'm such a crap actor, we decided it was a bad idea. I can't even die well." Micah Hauptman was cast to play him instead.

  5. Kripke's favorite episode ever is one of the Trickster/Gabriel's (Richard Speight Jr.) best moments.

    Kripke tweeted the Season 5 episode "Changing Channels" is his "all-time favorite #SPN episode." Yeah, it's definitely in our top five, based on the above GIF alone.

Keep the fun facts coming, Eric, and thanks for creating such a badass show!
