TVXOHOF, 01/2009-A: REEGE!

January is traditionally the Classic TV month for the Crossover Hall of Fame. And since he'll be appearing on 'Brothers & Sisters' next Sunday (from what I read), then I thought there'd be no other better for this honor than Regis Philbin.

"Spin City"
- The Bone Collectors (2000)

(At least one of these appearances may be as the voice of Carter's dog....)

"Number 96"

At least one of those shows, 'Spin City', is set in an alternate universe. And this doesn't even take into account his many appearances in variety shows, sports programs, interview panels, etc......

And then there's his work in.......

"Lilo & Stitch: The Series"
- Drowsy: Experiment #350 (2004)

"The Simpsons"
- Old Yeller-Belly (2003)

- Treehouse of Horror IX (1998)

"Family Guy"
- Family Guy Viewer Mail #1 (2002)

With the "Treehouse of Horror IX", Regis Philbin joined an exclusive club with Jerry Seinfeld and Drew Carey - he got to interact with pen-and-ink characters who crossed over from the Tooniverse!
