Thank you.

  • But no Monkees? Even with the Monkee-Men?

I can't believe I forgot the Monkees.

  • No Yellow Submarine? But they saved Pepperland! With a hole in Ringo's pocket!

I forgot them, too!

  • The Ghost Rider that debuted in 1967 was based in the Old West

I was thinking of the one that was modern-day, that they re-named "The Phantom Rider", and he turned up in the Rangers.

  • No mention of Star Trek and Gary Seven?

Star Trek will turn up in the 23rd Century.  I hadn't thought of Gary Seven.

  • Did Barney Miller really start in 1970? I thought it was mid-70s

You're right, it did start in 1974, I'll have to change that.

  • Didn' t Destroy All Monsters "happen" in 1999?

You're right, I meant to make a note about that. The picture is set in 1999. (Actually, the Japanese version says "199X".) In this case, I deliberately moved it to the year the picture came out, because I fell it fits better there, continuity-wise.  This one isn't a mistake, purely an arbitrary change on my part.

Added the Monkees and Papperland, removed Barney Miller.

Additions to 1961 and 1969.

What if Professor X and the Chief decided not to get along and told their teams not to associate with each other? With something like that going on you wouldn't even need a Magneto!

They would each accuse the other of gimmick infringement!
