Given the canonical ability to interact with other dimensions, the apocryphal television show Schrodinger's Heroes  is well situated for crossovers with other fandoms. Below are a few examples.

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland / Through the Looking-Glass

"Alex in Wonderland" -- In this story Alex follows the White Rabbit down the rabbit hole to Wonderland. It begins with a variation on the opening paragraph of the classic novel:
Alex was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank, and of having nothing to do: once or twice she had peeped into the book her sister was reading, but it had no diagrams or equations in it, ‘and what is the use of a book,’ thought Alex ‘without diagrams or equations?’
The focus is on all the little motifs that could tie into time travel or alternate dimensions, such as the doors and keys, and the rabbit's pocket watch. There are also many references to "Landing the Eagle," "Rubbing the Lamp," "Time, Like an Ever-Flowing Stream," and "The Fourth Wall" -- all episodes dealing with themes of divergent reality.

"Looking through the Glass" -- This story focuses on black!Schrodinger and white!Schrodinger as much as Alex (in her role as Alice). It begins with the same paragraph as the classic novel:
One thing was certain, that the white kitten had had nothing to do with it: -- it was the black kitten's fault entirely. For the white kitten had been having its face washed by the old cat for the last quarter of an hour (and bearing it pretty well, considering); so you see that it couldn't have had any hand in the mischief.
The chess metaphor also prevails, though the colors are black and white rather than red and white. Alex is of course a brilliant chess player, and dives into this version of Wonderland politics with rather better results than both the cards (from "Alex in Wonderland") and conventional politics. Both Schrodingers also venture into Wonderland and nearly destroy it between them; imagine two kittens with a world-sized ball of yarn. (Idea courtesy of [personal profile] order_of_chaos.)

Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter

"French Military Victories" -- A script in which Pat overhears Quinn arguing on the phone with his former master, Jean-Claude. Quinn refuses Jean-Claude permission to enter his territory (actually, to land a jet on the Teferact's airstrip) and gripes that not everyone's sex life is as fucked up as Jean-Claude's is. Pat reminds Quinn that not everyone has the people skills to make polyamory work. (This script has been written out.  Read Part 1.)

"Pruning the Roses" -- Quinn is a vampire of Belle Morte's line. He doesn't care for vampire politics, though, and when she tries to invade his dreams, he balks. Quinn wakes up Alex and Ash, informing them that a sex-crazed vampire queen is trying to control him and may pose a threat to the Tef. Quantum physics comes in handy. Also Belle Morte makes the unpleasant discovery that she has exactly zero power over aces. Quinn attempts to sell this information to his old master, Jean-Claude ... only to discover that Jean-Claude is unable to grasp what "asexual" means. Tim sympathizes.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

"Coming Soon to a Hellmouth Near You" -- Willow visits Ash for research purposes. They stay up for two nights running and Willow forgets to call home. Buffy shows up looking for Willow and nearly stakes vampire!Quinn. (Quinn: "Hey! Just because I don't have soul doesn't mean I'm evil. You're not one of those religious moralists, are you? Because I'm a secular humanist.") Kay has to intervene and explain the differences between life at the Hellmouth and life at the Teferact. Except it turns out that somebody is trying to unite the two.

Schrodinger's Heroes also has a menu post.

My favourite (as attested to by much bitten-back maniacal laughter) -

Coming Soon to a Hellmouth Near You. Also known as me being too lazy at the time to type the whole thing :P Willow+Ash+Research=Fun. Thou shalt not stake the Quinn!vampire = Fun.

... watching the One Ring try to get a grip on Sam Gamgee. Hopelessly incompatible.

*cackles* OMG YES! ♥
