Another Saturday morning, another Tooniverse post.....

I don't think another TV series will be coming along in the deluge of Fall premieres which will dislodge 'Stranger Things' as my favorite new TV show of 2016.  I'm so hoping that when it finally runs its course, as all TV shows must (except maybe 'Coronation Street', '60 Minutes' and 'The Simpsons'), it won't have broadcast anything that would disqualify it from being a part of Earth Prime-Time.  

But an artist by the screen name of "Shamserg" has envisioned 'Stranger Things' as part of another TV Dimension, that of the Tooniverse:

Shamserg has depicted four of our main characters - Eleven, Dustin, Mike, and Lucas - as denizens in the cartoon series 'Gravity Falls'.

Here's the link to that Deviantart page.

But just in case you don't see it there, here's a message from Shamserg about how you could support his artistic efforts:

If anyone wants to support me, here's my patreon -

This isn't an official representation of 'Stranger Things' in the Tooniverse, but I would not be surprised if someday one of the many too-hip-for-the-room cartoon series adds in a cameo pastiche that would be accepted as cartoon canon.

In the meantime, 'Stranger Things' is officially part of Skitlandia, thanks to Jimmy Fallon and the 'Tonight' show, with the participation of those same four young actors.....

If Mike, Eleven, Lucas, and Dustin ever do show up in another show, played by their original actors - even just for a sketch like this! - they would qualify for membership in the Television Crossover Hall of Fame as Pandimensionals.
