Winter 1901 - Following the Sarmaks' betrayal of the Circle of Life collaborators on Annwn, and the Circle's decimation under the heat-rays of the invaders, any mention of extra-terrestrial life, Martian or otherwise, becomes an embarrassment for the second Professor James Moriarty. Although he ran the Circle of Life from a distance, and was planning on using the Circle cult members and the events of the Second Invasion with an eye towards eventually ruling Annwn himself, Moriarty now realizes that he needs to distance himself from those events. He taps the remaining infrastructure of the Circle of Life organization on Earth, renames the group "Krafthaus," and assigns Krafthaus members what seems a daunting task: the complete eradication of any substantial evidence of the existence of extra-terrestrials. Moriarty's goal is that within fifty years, no one on Earth will believe in alien life or that the War of the Worlds really happened. (However, even Moriarty could not have predicted the 1947 Roswell Incident and the resurgent interest in extra-terrestrials.) Over the next several decades, and even beyond the second Professor Moriarty's death, his organization, now known as THRUSH, mounts a massive disinformation campaign, reducing the events of the Martian Invasion to mere mythology. Overall, the second Professor Moriarty's plan is successful, and by the latter half of the 20th Century, most people regard the events of The War of the Worlds as mere fiction. Of course, throughout Earth's history there have been countless extra-terrestrial contacts, such as the Eridaneans and the Capelleans, an orphaned infant from the planet Krypton, and visitations as described in the annals of the Cthulhu Mythos, Star Trek, and The X-Files. However, all records and knowledge of those contacts remain secret, unsubstantiated, or lost in the mists of ancient times. In the late 20th Century, those who consider themselves to be rational and scientific, such as Dr. Dana Scully, refuse to believe, without substantial scientific proof, that alien life-forms have visited Earth. Thanks to the second Professor Moriarty's efforts, as well as the post-1947 machinations of the Consortium, an offshoot of THRUSH (see The X-Files), such proof no longer exists. Those who do continue to believe in extra-terrestrials, such as Fox Mulder, are regarded as kooks and spooks.

1800s--ATOMIC ROBO: KNIGHTS OF THE GOLDEN CIRCLE--Atomic Robo is in the old west teaming up with Bass Reeves (the man who inspired the Lone Ranger in the real world, but who coexists with him as separate people in the TVCU) and Doc Holiday (who has had his share of crossovers with famous fictional characters and many other TVCU adventures that didn't happen in the real world). Atomic Robo quotes his friend Buckaroo Banzai. The adventure concludes with the bad guy's ship crashing into Groom Lake. The wreckage is investigated by Jim West and Artemus Gordon (WILD WILD WEST).
1867 to Present--NATHANIEL CADE--Grey Aliens turn up in the Nathaniel Cade books, though it's implied they're not just ETs but something more sinister.
1912 to Present--Santa has appeared on screen since 1912, in over a thousand films and television shows. Not all are TVCU canon. Of those that are, some are of the “real” Santa and some are just a man in the suit, but it’s a TVCU concept that anyone wearing the suit can become possessed by the Christmas Spirit, a magical tulpa like aspect of Jesus. Some of those appearances from the TVCU (or Television Crossover Multiverse) are: BABES IN TOYLAND, ROAD TO UTOPIA, SANTA AND THE FAIRY SNOW QUEEN, I LOVE LUCY, THE JACK BENNY PROGRAM, RUDOLPH, THE RED-NOSED REINDEER, THE FLINTSTONES, THUNDERBIRDS, BATMAN, MISTEROGERS, THE LION, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE, FROSTY THE SNOWMAN, BEWITCHED, THE BRADY BUNCH, SANTA AND THE THREE BEARS, ADAM-12, MISTER ROGERS’ NEIGHBORHOOD, THE FIRST EASTER RABBIT, RUDOLPH’S SHINY NEW YEAR, MCCLOUD, A FLINTSTONE CHRISTMAS, LOU GRANT, RAGGEDY ANN AND ANDY IN THE GREAT SANTA CLAUS CAPER, ALL IN THE FAMILY, BENJI’S VERY OWN CHRISTMAS STORY, LAVERNE & SHIRLEY, RUDOLPH AND FROSTY’S CHRISTMAS IN JULY, BUGS BUNNY’S LOONEY CHRISTMAS TALES, THE LITTLE RASCALS’ CHRISTMAS SPECIAL, A FAMILY CIRCUS CHRISTMAS, CASPER’S FIRST CHRISTMAS, ALICE, YOGI’S FIRST CHRISTMAS, A CHIPMUNK CHRISTMAS, LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE, FAST TIMES AT RIDGEMONT HIGH, DIFF’RENT STROKES, GLORIA, A CHRISTMAS STORY, T.J.

Fall 1925--SEVEN STARS--"Angel Down, Sussex"--The Diogenes Club encounter little grey aliens. Other crossovers: GREEN TEA, DR. JOHN SILENCE, SHERLOCK HOLMES, X-FILES, OTHER WORKS OF KIM NEWMAN.
1931--THE WHISPERER IN THE DARK--Some Mythos material had them as agents of the Mi-Go.
August 1939~Alison Dare: Little Miss Adventures; J. Torres and J. Bone--"A Day at the Museum (Or: Now Museum, Now You Don't)" [From James Bojaciuk's Alison Dare post]--Alison and her friends decide to sneak into Dr. Dare's museum and take a private tour. Outside, they pass Tintin and Snowy from Hergé's The Adventures of Tintin.
Inside the office, the girls find a Broken-Eared Statuette, from the Tintin adventure The Broken Ear (though it's possible to argue argue the squat, angry idol is meant to be the Chachapoyan fertility idol from Raiders of the Lost Ark, I believe it is not)...
...The Ark of the Covenant (on loan, presumably, from Area 51)...
And the Right Hand of Doom (from Hellboy) as well two of the three Sankara Stones (from Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom). The two lost Sankara Stones somehow made their way from an Indian river to the United States. The presence of the Right Hand of Doom seems to contradict the fact that Hellboy was born in 1945, but the Right Hand preexisted not only Hellboy, but humanity. This is explored in The Island and Hellboy in Hell. (Keep in mind, however, that the Hellboy of the TVCU is not quite the Hellboy of Mike Mignola. The TVCU incorporates the events of Hellboy and Hellboy II: The Golden Army, and tones down--or eliminates--the apocalpyses.)
9th July 1947--FUTURAMA--"Roswell That Ends Well"--Emerging from a time-warp from the year 3002, the Planet Express ship crash-lands near Roswell, New Mexico.
night of 9th July 1947--FUTURAMA--"Roswell That Ends Well"--Philip J. Fry sleeps with his maternal grandmother Mildred, and inadvertently conceives his own father, Yancy Fry. This fact is surmised by the Professor onscreen, but not explicitly confirmed until "The Why Of Fry". For a discussion of Fry's genetic makeup, see here.
10th July 1947--FUTURAMA--"Roswell That Ends Well"--The Planet Express crew return through the time-warp to 3002, leaving behind Bender's head. Bender's head will remain buried near Roswell for the next 1045 years.
July 1947--ROSWELL--Beginning at a 30-year reunion for members of a military nuclear bomb unit, flashbacks are presented that follow the attempts of Major Jesse Marcel to discover the truth about strange debris found on a local rancher's field in July of 1947. Told by his superiors that what he has found is nothing more than a downed weather balloon, Marcel maintains his military duty until the weight of the truth, however out of this world it may be, forces him to piece together what really occurred. Adapted from real-life events portrayed in the book _UFO Crash at Roswell_ by Kevin Randle and Donald Schmitt.
1947--DESTROY ALL HUMANS--Cryptosporidium-136 was shot Down over in 1947 and was imprisoned by Majestic in Area 42. They used Furon Tech to make Weapons. His body was found in 1959 by Cryptosporidium-137.
July 1947--INDIANA JONES AND THE KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL--Indy is called in to consult when an alien craft and it's inhabitants is captured. These are likely the grey aliens from X-FILES and other series and movies. However, how they got there is another story. Just prior to their crash, a space craft from the 24th century arrived in Roswell. Three Ferengi are captured until rescued by their shape shifter companion. They return to the future (STAR TREK: DEEP SPACE NINE), however leaving an opening from which the Planet Express crew from the 31st century are pulled backward. While the ship's doctor is examined by the military, another crew member (originally from the late 20th century) creates a paradox by becoming his own grandfather (FUTURAMA). Thus when they escape, they leave behind a nexus that draws the Grey Aliens to Earth and also makes Earth a target for invasions from other worlds. Even more information on links to other series based on the Roswell event can be found here.
~April 1948--FUTURAMA--"Roswell That Ends Well"--Yancy Fry is born to Mildred, assuming a standard 9-month pregnancy.
1960s--DARK SKIES--In 1960s America, a young couple struggle to expose the truth about a hidden alien invasion, while a secret government organization follows its own agenda in dealing with the threat.
July 1969--STAR TREK--"Tomorrow is Yesterday/The Aliens are Coming!"--From Win Scott Eckert's Crossover Chronology--Captain John Christopher, a jet fighter pilot in the Air Force, stationed at SAC Headquarters in Omaha, has a strange, brief encounter with a UFO. Shortly thereafter, Christopher has vague memory flashes of futuristic humans, an alien named Spock, and a ship called the U.S.S. Enterprise. Meanwhile, government agent James Wainwright, who once encountered aliens calling themselves "Ferengi" in Roswell in 1947, attempts to use Captain Christopher's secret knowledge to promote his crusade of guarding Earth against alien attack. Fortunately, Captain Christopher is saved by Aegis agents Roberta Lincoln and Gary Seven. The Star Trek episode Tomorrow Is Yesterday provides one of the best "teasers" of this or any other Star Trek series. The sequel, The Aliens Are Coming!, was written by Dayton Ward and can by found in the Strange New Worlds III anthology, May 2000. Captain John Christopher could very well be the son of Jimmy Christopher (Operator #5). The Roswell incident was documented in the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episode called Little Green Men. Seven and Lincoln first appeared in the episode Assignment: Earth, and also battled Khan Noonian Singh in The Eugenics Wars novels.
