1970 to 1974--THE PARTRIDGE FAMILY--Another theoretical link to Marcus Welby can be found here.
1971--Marcus Welby, M.D.--From Toby O'Brien: Point of O'Bservation - Any time a fictional character is mentioned in a TV show without reference to the source of origin, I accept that as tacit acceptance the character is real in Toobworld. Latest example - from a 1971 episode of 'Marcus Welby, M.D.' "You're not Superman, you know; you're a doctor." - Roger Nastili (Apache descendent of Hannibal Heyes). I won't be using that in Inner Toob until my August TV Western theme, but thought I'd share it with my crossover compadres now.....

THE EARTH DAY SPECIAL (LIVE ACTION TELEVISION SPECIAL)
Release Date: April 22, 1990 (Contemporary Setting)
Horror Crosses: Ghostbusters
Non-Horror Crosses: Muppet Show; Murphy Brown; Looney Tunes; Doogie Howser M.D.; Back to the Future; Nathan Thurm; Cheers; Cosby Show; Golden Girls; E.T. the Extraterrestrial; Married with Children; Marcus Welby M.D.; China Beach
The Story: The pollution caused by humans is literally killing Mother Nature.
Notes: This is a mega television crossover event. And despite the silly premise, all the crossed series remain true to the shows and films they come from. There is an appearance of Elong Spengler, president of Waste Busters. He is said to be the brother of Egon Spengler of Ghostbusters and is played by the same actor. And yes, the Muppets are in this. To explain the existence of Muppets in the Horror Universe, I reference the Angel episode in which puppets are brought to life possessed by demons. Or the Buffy episode with a human turned into a dummy. Or Chucky from Child’s Play. Murphy Brown, Doogie Howser, Cheers, the Cosby Show, the Golden Girls, and Married with Children are all standard sitcoms and are brought into the Horror Universe by this cross. Looney Tunes characters are animated drawings brought to life by the Necronomicon ex Mortis based on the film Evil Toons. Back to the Future is already well established as part of the Horror Universe, but this appearance of Doc Brown and his Delorean is a greater confirmation. Nathan Thurm is a character from Saturday Night Live, but just as with the appearance of Father Guido Sarducci in Casper, this cross does not bring in the entire cast of characters from SNL. Finally, this cross brings in the loveable alien E.T.
1993 to 1999--HOMICIDE: LIFE ON THE STREET--Another Tim Bayliss is a detective in Baltimore. He may be related to the Tim Bayliss who mentored Marcus Welby.
November 2006--STAND-OFF--Another Tim Bayliss is a captain in the LAPD.
November 2007--NCIS--Designated Target"--A Chuck Bayliss may be related to the Tim Bayliss who mentored Marcus Welby.
