Here are five TV crossover’s which make no sense..and yet they worked somehow.These have to be official crossover’s that last more than a cameo. And it has to be the actual universe’s meeting and not just the actor pretending. For instance, “Superman” appeared on I Love Lucy but in the episode it was really George Reeves in character (though the episode tries to pretend he’s Superman by never referring to the actor’s name, but I doubt Superman would be doing public appearances at malls). There was also a Mork & Mindy episode where William Shatner sort of played Captain Kirk..but not really. Or that time Kramer appeared on Murphy Brown, it was clear Murphy Brown was a TV show in Seinfeld’s world.
And there was that time Webster appeared with Worf from Star Trek The Next Generation (it happened! I swear!!Look—
but that was clearly not set in the real TNG universe and was in fact a clip show (yawn).
Batman and The Green Hornet
I actually hated this episode as a kid, though I’m not sure why. I think it’s because I ha dno idea who the special guest hero was. So it almost felt like a bad backdoor pilot. Now that I know Green Hornet was a real thing..this was a pretty cool crossover. The two heroes worked well and I can even by that Britt Reid and Bruce Wayne had been old friends once. The only problem with this idea is Green Hornet was not campy like Batman, so having these two different styles mesh would not be easy. And maybe that’s why I hated this episode as a kid, the Green Hornet stuff was straight up boring to me.
