A Crossover is a story which combines characters and settings from two or more separate fictional properties to create a single narrative.

Characters from various Disney-related universes have interacted multiple times throughout the companies history.

In some cases, it can occur in a self-contained scenario that has no relation to anything within a certain canon (various Disney movie characters appear on the show House of Mouse, with their appearances baring no relation to the established canon of their respective films). In other cases, properties that have their own established narratives and canon can interact, thus unifying said narratives as taking place in the same universe (various live-action Disney Channel sitcoms are strongly hinted to all occur in a single universe). Sometimes, different versions of characters from various properties coexist in a singular universe (the Kingdom Hearts series is a prominent example of this). Crossovers have even occurred between Disney properties and characters and concepts from entirely different companies (Who Framed Roger Rabbit is one such example, with Kingdom Hearts also serving as another example).

Disney Channel sitcoms

The vast majority of live-action sitcoms that have aired on Disney Channel have been strongly implied to share a singular universe, due to various crossovers occurring between them. The shows that allegedly exist in this universe include That's So Raven (and its spin-off Cory in the House), The Suite Life of Zack & Cody (and its sequel series The Suite Life on Deck), Hannah Montana, Wizards of Waverly Place, Good Luck Charlie, Liv and Maddie, Austin & Ally, Jessie, I Didn't Do It, Girl Meets WorldShake It Up, and Best Friends Whenever, as well the Disney XD show I'm in the Band.

Comics

Many pre-80s Disney comics often mixed and matched characters from different properties, though certain groupings would often form over time.

Examples include:

The crossover tradition would fade in time from North American Disney comics, but a few Disney Afternoon based comics would have the various show characters cross paths.

  • The Legend of the Chaos God: a five-issue story in Disney Adventures, featuring a plot that begins in TaleSpin and, after a time skip, crosses through to Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers, Goof Troop, DuckTales, and Darkwing Duck.
  • Dangerous Currency: a four-issue story set in the final two issues each of Boom! Studios' DuckTales and Darkwing Duck comic books. It was published without approval from Disney and thus is not considered canon.
  • Aaron Sparrow pitched a new DuckTales/Darkwing Duck crossover as part of the latter show's revival comic titled "The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck: The Movie". In it, Darkwing would attempt to investigate a Scrooge McDuck biopic being produced by Tuskerninni, only to be cast as Scrooge when Tuskerninni sees through his disguise.[1] Unfortunately, since the comic was cancelled, the story is unlikely to ever be published.

Beyond the Disney Afternoon, other crossovers include

  • Mixing Pot: A 2007 short comic story for the "Asterix and His Friends: Tribute to Uderzo" special album where Donald Duck, the nephews and Gyro Gearloose traveled back in time and met Asterix and Obelix.
  • Prep & Landing: Mansion Impossible: A short Marvel Christmas story where Santa's elves prepare the Avengers Mansion for Santa's arrival.
