Crossovers have pretty much been around since the beginning of television. In fact,  in the ’90s it was pretty common for a network to grab its nearest Urkel (he was popping up everywhere), or Fresh Prince and place him in, say, an early episode of Step-by-Step to boost ratings, or to introduce an audience to another show.

Whether you’re on the fence or totally on board for the SimpsonsFamily Guy crossover, it’s certainly nothing new for The Simpsons to feature network family on the show. We all remember when Scully and Mulder of The X-Files came to Springfield to investigate Homer’s paranormal sighting in “The Springfield Files,” and when Jay Sherman of The Critic showed up in “A Star is Burns.” Here we take a look at some of the times other TV show crossovers have happened. Some for the better, and some  for the worse.
