Tuesday, February 3, 2009


Here it is, the first week of February, 2009, Black History Month, the second month in our year-long celebration of the 10th anniversary of the TV Crossover Hall of Fame. Week One each month is dedicated to the induction of a member of the League of Themselves, those celebrities who appear as the fictional televersions of themselves.

And for this year, this month, we've chosen Snoop Dogg! With appearances as a puppet, a stop-motion action figure, and a puppet - as well as the expected live-action televersion we've seen in many TV shows and commercials - Snoop Dogg has amassed more than the required appearances in at least three TV shows.

Here's a rundown of those appearances in which he was caught in the act of being himself:

Futurama: Into the Wild Green Yonder (2009) (V)

"One Life to Live"
- Uncle-cest Is Best (2008)

- Dogg Day Afternoon (2008)

"Robot Chicken"
- Squaw Bury Shortcake (2007)

- The Dream Team (2007)

- MILF Money (2006)

"Las Vegas"
- Two of a Kind (2004)

- Impin' with a Pippin! (2004)

"The Tracy Morgan Show"
- Miracle Street (2004)

"Crank Yankers"
- Episode #2.19 (2003)
- Episode #2.3 (2003)

- Mardi Gras '02 (2002)
(With a connection to 'The X-Files', it always did have a fictional feel to it.)

"Just Shoot Me!"
- Finch in the Dogg House (2001)

"The Steve Harvey Show"
- I Do, I Don't (1997)

- No Love Lost (1994)

There was also a TV blipvert for Orbit teeth-whitening gum. And who better to show off a dirty mouth than Snoop Dogg?

And Snoop once hired Adrian Monk, I think in a 2007 ep.
