I used to run a monthly feature called "Fanficcer's Friend" in which I'd supply a picture usually from a movie and suggest that TV fanficcers use it to help expand Toobworld with new adventures.

I'm going to tweak that a bit right now and use pictures from 'Dragnet' that are already frozen in time as far as Toobworld is concerned in honor of our two inductees into the TV Crossover Hall of Fame.

First up: Here's the premise - Friday and Gannon are looking for a rogue Nazi who's hunting the recently thawed out Colonel Wilhelm Klink. Klink had been the guinea pig in the Nazi experiments to cryogenically freeze a man for decades. The process was developed to use on Hitler (see 'The Man From U.N.C.LE.') using technology developed by the Edwardian archvillain the Face ('Adam Adamant Lives!'), but they didn't want to risk the Fuehrer on the first try.

We know Klink survived into the 1960's without any significant aging.....

So how else to splain it without cryogenics?

Also, Friday and Gannon can't be after Klink himself - if Batman and Robin let him go, he must not be a wanted man by the 1960's.....

In the next picture, Friday and Gannon are in the Movie Universe (where both of them have credentials - Friday in 1954 and Gannon in 1987). The body in question? How about Smiler Grogan of "It's A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World"?

Hey, I just supply the pictures and suggestions. You do the rest....
