Jake Gyllenhaal wrapped up his hosting gig on Saturday Night Live on May 18th with a memorable sketch that had viewers both laughing and screaming. The final sketch of the night was a dark and twisted parody of the classic cartoon Scooby-Doo. While the episode began with a familiar Scooby-Doo premise, things quickly turned into blood-spraying mayhem.

This Scooby-Doo spoof was the perfect way to end a season full of surprises and humor on SNL. The sketch had it all – comedy, horror, and a good dose of absurdity – making it one of the standout moments of the season. The skit is already making waves online, and fans are sure to be talking about it for a long time.

Intense Scooby-Doo Sketch Takes Internet by Storm

The sketch featured Jake Gyllenhaal as Fred, the leader of the Scooby-Doo gang. The rest of the gang included Sabrina Carpenter as Daphne, Mikey Day as Shaggy, and Sarah Sherman as Velma.

It started with the gang arriving at a (seemingly) haunted house, following the usual Scooby-Doo routine: investigating creepy sounds, finding hidden passages, and confronting the culprit. However, things took a dark turn when they spotted a culprit disguised as Old Man Franklin (James Austin Johnson), whom they thought should be unmasked.

Fred stated, “But who is Old Man Franklin — I mean, really? No one is who they appear to be.” So, when Fred tore off the mask, he ended up ripping off the culprit’s own face instead!

“Quick, we need to put the face in a bowl of dry rice!” Daphne thought of an idea.

“It’s not a cellphone, you moron!” Velma told her.

Soon, Scooby-Doo (voiced by Andrew Dismukes) completely destroys the face. This particular scene is going viral on the internet. Check it out below:

The sketch took a dark and bloody turn, showing the Scooby-Doo gang meeting gruesome ends from booby traps they set off themselves. The violence was meant to be funny but also managed to be pretty scary.

A Night to Remember for SNL Fans

The sketch reached its climax with the arrival of a police officer, played by Kenan Thompson. Just when it seemed the madness couldn’t get any worse, in the final twist, Shaggy gets caught in a trap hidden as a bookshelf and loses his arm.

Velma accidentally walks into a trap wire and, sadly, loses her head. Fred, in a panic, shoots the cop (played by Kenan Thompson) to hide the evidence. And to wrap it all up, Scooby accidentally shoots Fred, ending the wild spoof.
