Top Ten "Crossover" Episodes Currently on Disney's Drawing Board

  1. Agents Mulder and Scully are sent to New York to investigate reports of "flying monsters." They're just about to discover the truth when Mulder is distracted by some new lifeforms mutating in the Hudson (the river) and misses everything.
  2. Bonkers is assigned to Elisa's precinct. Thankfully, Bronx eats him five minutes into the episode, and everyone else lives happily ever after.
  3. The X-Men show up in Manhattan and become embroiled in a turf war with the Mutates. The issue is decided when it is confirmed that Talon does indeed have *slightly* more body hair than Wolverine.
  4. During the "Mists of Avalong" tour, the travellers find themselves in Tokyo. Goliath accepts the challenge issued by Ranma Saotome of the Tendo Dojo; however, the "Anything-Goes Martial Arts Dostoyevsky Reading Competition" is brought to a sudden halt when Tatewaki Kuno professes his undying love for Angela, who proceeds to pound the pudding out of him.
  5. Due to a series of incredible flukes (which happen during a commercial so we don't get to see it) the entire cast of Gargoyles find themselves on the Starship Enterprise. Intriguingly, everyone's voices sound just like everyone else's, and the situation dissolves into chaos.
  6. Yakko, Wakko, and Dot pick Hudson as their "special friend" and proceed to humiliate him in a series of improbable slapstick gags. Hudson's patience runs out, and he deep-fries the little weasels.
  7. Vampire detective Nicholas Knight is assigned as Elisa's new partner. Hanging around someone who flies, comes out only at night, has glowing eyes, and is constantly immersed in flashbacks turns out to be right up Elisa's alley, and the partnership thrives-- until Broadway inadvertently kills Knight with a garlic pizza.
  8. Lexington is surfing the Internet one night when he is sucked into cyberspace and turned into a wild-haired, red-underwear-wearing freak blessed with superpowers and a great Jerry Lewis impression. The other gargoyles quickly tire of the Lexazoid's antics, and unplug the computer until he promises to behave himself.
  9. The gargoyles move out of the clock tower and find adjoining apartments on the East Side. They abandon crime fighting and instead hang out at "Central Perk," a local coffee house, where the six friends sit on ugly furniture, drink cappucino, and make wry, sarcastic comments about living, loving, and being angst-ridden Generation Xers.

  10. Three words: Bambi vs. Goliath.
