The current series of blipverts for MetLife give great examples of characters from the Tooniverse crossing over into Earth Prime-Time:

As you can see, the citizens of the Tooniverse retain their pen 'n' ink bodies in the flesh 'n' blood world of Earth Prime-Time.  The reverse holds true as well.  Any Toobworld character who is seen as a cartoon in the Tooniverse was already a citizen of that realm and is a distinct individual with a separate life from any pozz'ble live-action version.  (Mork, Fonzie, Gilligan, Mr. Spock, Punky Brewster, the Penguin, Dick Van Dyke, Burt Reynolds.....)
