Yesterday afternoon, I sat down to watch my Thursday night's tapes - 'My Name Is Earl' & 'The Office' (sadly, no 'Murder City' this week) - only to find they were very recent repeats.

So with nothing left to watch (I'm finally caught up on my TBVLs - to be viewed later), I started flipping. And I landed on an episode of 'Dharma & Greg' which I missed first time around.

Here's the plot description:

Dharma discovers Greg is really the only man for her when she agrees to attend a dance with a nerdy high school kid, but meets with some serious competition from the younger crowd. Meanwhile, Larry sings his "You guys are okay" song to Edward and Kitty, causing Kitty to fall and hurt herself; this prompts Kitty to sue Larry after she is embarrassed by her donut-cushion in front of the mayor. Larry represents himself, while Pete arbitrates.

As Dharma danced with Greg at the close of the show, I saw a banner hanging in the background which identified the school as Bayside High School.

This is the same high school in San Francisco which Raven attends in 'That's So Raven'. So I have a definite link between those two shows. And 'Dharma & Greg' connect to Toobworld thanks to an appearance by Dick Clark as not only a member of the League of Themselves but also as a member in the TV Crossover Hall of Fame (December, 2000).

As the 'D&G' episode aired in November of 1998, and 'That's So Raven' didn't premiere until January of 2003, Donald obviously must have graduated before Raven attended the school. So there was no unseen crossover going on.

Apparently the sets used for Bayside High School in 'That's So Raven' are the same sets used in the 'Saved By The Bell' series. However, they are not the same school; 'Saved By The Bell' took place a little further south along the coast of California in Palisades. More than likely both high schools shared the same architetural firm... probably the one headed by Mike Brady of 'The Brady Bunch'.
