I'm still working on the 2012 Toobits Awards, which always takes a bit of time (especially after that New Year's Day marathon of 'Doctor Who' posts!) But in the meantime, I thought we'd take a look back at the newest members of the TV Crossover Hall Of Fame, inducted in 2012.....

THE ISLAND OF MISFIT TOYSCHRISTMAS MULTIVERSAL HONORS
As you can see, many of the entries this year were spurred by the deaths of the personalities themselves, many of whom portrayed themselves. (I'm glad I was able to honor J.R. Ewing before it became necessary.)
Along those lines, you might think of some who may have deserved this honor who also passed away this year, but some of them have already received the honor:
JACK KLUGMAN (as OSCAR MADISON) - January 2002
ANDY GRIFFITH (as SHERIFF ANDY TAYLOR) - August 2002
CHARLES DURNING (as SANTA CLAUS) - December 1999
Off the top of my noggin, that's all I can think of at present......
