Me proving Homestuck is in the same universe as Spongebob Squarepants:

Homestuck was in Namco High with Pac-Man, who was in Smash/Street Fighter X Tekken with Ryu, who was in MvC with Marvel characters, DC vs. Marvel comic event, Batman was in Injustice 2 with the TMNT, and the TMNT were in Nickelodeon Kart Racers with Spongebob

Anyone out there: give me 2 fictional properties and I will try to connect them, with in-universe connections if possible

The trick is just to find your way to either comic books, Smash Bros., or the Tommy Westphall Universe as quickly as possible, depending on the things you're trying to connect. (Also helps that the 3 things I listed are all connected).

@anna That's a podcast, right? I'll just take an easy route then:

The podcast takes place in the real world. Danica Patrick is from the real world. Danica Patrick was also in Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed.

@The_T hmm. i mean its a bizarro world but its based on hypercharicatures of gregg turkington and tim heidecker so close enough

also it started as a podcast and became.... a hell of a lot more

@anna yeah, it's harder for me to find connections for stuff I've never heard of, but if you know of any things it does crossover with, I can use those as connection points to make a more interesting path

@anna Well there's a difference between a challenge and "I don't know what that is"

@The_T its extremely good and probably the greatest achievement in meta comedy of all time

@casey Well, apparently The Millennium Falcon appears on Star Trek: First Contact. Also, R2-D2 appears in Star Trek (2009) and Star Trek Into Darkness.

But ignoring that:

Luke Skywalker, C-3PO , R2D2 appear in an episode of The Muppet Show. Statler and Waldorf make a cameo appearance in a Marvel comic with Spider-Man. Also in the Marvel universe, the X-Men cross over with Star Trek twice.

@matt The only connection I could find for Red Dwarf is that A Klingon Bird of Prey from Star Trek is seen in a spaceship graveyard in Red Dwarf "Psirens". The X-Men (Marvel) have crossed over with Star Trek twice. The Marvel Universe has crossed over with the DC universe in DC VS Marvel. Green Arrow (DC) has an appearance of Jay and SIlent Bob, who have appeared on Degrassi.

@The_T Dang, impressive. That's weird, because I almost picked X-Men for one of them but figured with all the comic book crossovers that'd have been too easy.

There's been so many thousands of comics over the decades I bet they've crossed over with everything at some point.

@matt Oh god, There's a Star Trek/Green Lantern crossover so I could have made it even shorter. Oops.

@matt Feel free to challenge me again, I love this.

@matt I... what? I don't even know what that first one is, and looking it up, I don't think it crosses over with anything. I don't even think it's viewable.

@matt Fine! Using a lot of stretched logic: The creator of The Cremaster Cycle, Matthew Barney, was in a relationship with BjΓΆrk, who was in the film Dancer in the Dark with Stellan SkarsgΓ₯rd, who was Dr. Selvig in Thor. A different universe version of Thor is in the Marvel VS DC event, alongside Batman, who was in Injustice 2 with TMNT, who are in an issue of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Magazine with Garfield, who meets Dagwood in Garfield Gets Real. Dagwood has appeared in Hi and Lois.

@matt I thought a lot about it and I think, ONE actor to character connection is legal, only in events where there is no possible character/story crossover connection.

@The_T I mean, Matthew Barney does basically play himself in that movie, and Bjork's life is kind of a cinematic universe in it's own right. I'd say that's the best anyone could have done.

I can't function because I'm still thinking about how proud of myself I am for this.
