So many crossovers that I can't keep track of them now.

I recall saying in one of my previous comments about where "I was really hoping for a Futurama Simpsons crossover film or episode instead." My hopes have come true.

Whether or not the intentions behind all these crossovers are completely corporate (as in Disney Channel and FOX executives are making the creators do this) or decisions coming from the actual creators of all these shows, at least a ton of artists are still going to be working in some degree. I'm starting to have mixed feelings myself.
