The cross-over list

Well, I have had some enthusiasm about this topic, so I decided to generate a list. I want to update this, so tell me what I miss.

Thanks to Y&RWorldTurner, All My Shadows, Jack Peyton, Jinx Avery, Sindacco, Zendall Fan, Robynishere, DavidEvanSmith, EricMontreal22 (SON), Seth J. Bookey, K McC, Grace Noble, RecordHunter, Cheri (Usenet) and several commenters at blogger.com for additions/changes. IMDB and Wikipedia were useful sources for dates, and particularly for OLTL crossovers. I am also indebted to the AWHP at this link.

For brevity, I am treating GH and GH:Night Shift as pretty much the same show. But Jack Peyton (SON) has provided this rough list of crossovers: From GH to GH:NS, Contract: Robin Scorpio, Patrick Drake, Maxie Jones, Ep, Leo, Kelly, Lainey, Spinnelli, Jason Morgan; Recurring: Sonny, Lulu Spencer, Georgie Jones, Cooper, Mac Scorpio, Cruz Rodriguez, Iris Sneed, Dr. Russell Ford, Cody Paul. From GH:NS to GH, Contract: Leyla; Recurring: Regina, Stan Johnson, Dr. Andy Archer

Updated 11/27/2008: Night Shift2 continued the crossovers: From GH to GH:NS2, Contract: Robin Scorpio, Patrick Drake, Leo, Robert Scorpio, Jagger Cates; Recurring: Mac Scorpio, Anna Scorpio, Luke Spencer, Sean and Tiffany, Dr. Russell Ford, Monica Quartermaine.

The P&G shows frequently reference one another's towns (Bay City, Oakdale, Springfield), and the ABC shows do too (Port Charles, Llanview, and Pine Valley). The Bell shows also mention Los Angeles and Genoa City on one another's shows. There is a small suggestion that Passions and Days of Our Lives shared a common universe, but this is problematic because (per SON's RobynIsHere) Passions characters were often seen watching Days.

Specific crossovers follow. Years are approximate. Note: For easier browsing, this table is sorted by Year and by Show in tables at bottom. To accomplish that, I had to (a) limit the year to the first cross-over of a character, and (b) make guesses when exact dates were not known.

Amazing list!!

That really took a lot of work. I admire your dedication for taking all that time to compile it. THANKS.

Two corrections that I noted:

1. Joanna Manning didn't die in Catalina. That was the Scott Granger crossing over to B&B in 1992 or 1993 story. Joanna was not involved with it since Susan Seaforth Hayes was back on Days by that point. Joanna is still alive. Last seen in Genoa City duirng Christmas 2005, but Lauren referenced going to see her last year.

2. The mentions of Santa Barbara characters on Sunset Beach would have been in 1998, not 2000. The show was cancelled on Dec. 31, 1999.

Great list. Very thorough.

Noticed a few things about AW/Texas which need to be updated or added.

The character of Dennis Carrington originated on AW in 1972, then moved to Texas in 1980. But AW brough the Dennis character back, played by Chris Bruno, in 1990 for a two year run.

The characters of Reena Bellman Cook (Carla Borelli) and Dr. Kevin Cook (Lee Paterson) debuted on AW in Feb. 1980 and were series regulars until they moved to Houston when the Texas spin-off officially debuted on August 4, 1980. The characters of Striker Bellman (Cliffton James) and Victoria Bellman (Elizabeth Allen), who were Reena's parents and series regulars on Texas, came to Bay City for about 6 weeks that spring while Kevin Cook performed Striker's heart bypass operation. All this was done to plant the seeds for the spin-off and generate viwewer interest in the characters.

So, while those 4 were always intended as Texas regulars, they did debut on AW and therefore crossed-over to Texas.

But it gets even more complicated and tricky. Although Texas officially debuted on August 4, 1980, the entire month of July 1980 on Another World was used to set up the Texas spin-off. The action was evenly split between Bay City and Houston for that month and all the major Texas characters were introduced during that month of July.

So characters like Alex Wheeler, Justin Marshall, Dawn Marshall, Courtney Marshall, Grandma Kate Marshall, Rikki Dekker, Max Dekker, Billy Joe Wright and MANY others who were regulars on the Texas series all *technically* appeared on Another World first. However, all the scenes involving those characters took place in Houston (where Texas was set) rather than Bay City.

Don't know how you want to handle those. I'd suggest just considering them all Texas characters and ignoreing the fact they appeared on AW for that month since their scenes all happened in Houston and were done for the spin-off. But you may view things differently.

Mark,

This is fantastic work. Really took dedication to spend the time putting it all together. My thanks and my admiration go out to you for doing it.

I forgot one other character involved in the AW to Texas cross overs.

The character of Elliot Carrington debuted on Another World in 1972 at the same time as Dennis and Iris Carrington. Character remained on the show for about 3 years.

After Texas debuted, they brought the Elliot character (played by a different actor -- Daniel Davis who went on to great fame in the late 90s playing Niles the butler on "The Nanny") to Houston as part of the Iris/Dennis storyline on that show.

The character of Sugar that Robin Mattson played on B&B. She was invovled with Shelia holding Ridge prisoner in Mexico in 2004.

When Y&R brought back Shelia in 2005, everyone thought Shelia was locked up in a mental institute in California. Was later revealed that the person locked up was Sugar who'd had plastic surgery to look like Shelia.
