Whatever happened to TV crossovers?

Remember the good old days when Urkel might show up on Full House or when Batman would show up and kick the crap out of Larry on Perfect Strangers? TV crossovers don't seem to happen much these days, but they totally should. Whenever the writers from two different mediocre shows combine, they form a Voltron of television awesomeness!

So here's our chance to suggest tv crossovers that need to happen. I'll start us off with a couple possibilities:

Andy from the NBC sitcom "The Office" goes to Manhattan for a weekend bender and gets caught with an under-age hooker by the officers of Law and Order: SVU. Andy's anger problem resurfaces when he takes a swing at Stabler. Stabler proceeds to beat the crap out of him. The show takes a classic Law and Order twist when all charges are dropped because it turns out that Andy is only 16 years old and has that weird disease that makes him look way older.

House from the Fox show "House" finds Jack Bauer on an episode of 24. Bauer is bleeding to death on a street corner in Bahrain where House happens to be vacationing. House applies immediate medical attention, saving Bauer from bleeding out. Upon regaining consciousness, Bauer is extremely grateful for the help, but decides to beat the crap out of House when House's terrible American accent makes Bauer suspicious that House is a counter-agent.

What other crossovers would you like to see? What other tv characters should have the crap beat out of them by other, more violent tv characters?

Every show needs to have Ice-T from Law and Order.

He can make any statement sound badass, like "I'm going to go out and pick up my drycleaning."

how about when Frazier Krane was on Cheers and Frazier?

Ricardo Montalban as Mr. Roarke appears on "Lost."

The giant foot from Monty Python shows up and squashes the entire "Two and a Half Men" cast and crew.

Katie Couric on "Iron Chef America" and someone sets her hair on fire.

I'd like the giant foot to squash most current sitcom casts. Starting with any of the 47 "overweight funny guy married to quick witted woman way too hot for him" shows.

Even better - Iron Chef America, with the contestants cooking Katie Couric.

i agree with slappy. ice-t FTW.

and i think that house should go on greys anatomy and make them stop whining.

except sandra oh. they should make babies.

i agree with slappy. i love ice t. have you seen his wife?!?!!? everytime i see a pic of her she has camel toe.

i'd like to be watching heroes and then all of a sudden the 3 chick form girls next door show up. not only are they hugh hefners girlfriends, but they can send shock wave through their fake boobs. so when the enemy is charging at them they just swing those babies and BAM, the enemy is half way across the state!

or how about the guys from entourage showing up on lost. vince could sleep with every chick on the island!

House goes to Grey's Anatomy and has an affair with every woman on the show, thereby causing them all to get into a huge catfight and beat the crap out of each other.

slappy said...

Never seen Mrs. Ice-T. Presumably the sound of his voice causes spontaneous camel toe.

I've seen the US and UK versions of The Office, and I've decided the cast of the US version is better, but Ricky Gervais is funnier than Steve Carrell. So I'd like Gervais to appear on the US Office and kill Steve Carrell.

Me, I'd like to see your bacon cross over to my blog, already.

Everybody Loves Raymond and King of Queens did some crossovers. But I'd like to see Tony Soprano get LOST and stick it to those fucking others.

poor sick pathetic mr. carlson.
