For example ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' had a handful of episodes where the characters would head off at the end, only to turn up in ''Series/{{Angel}}'' straight after. This also worked the other way, with a magic amulet in ''Series/{{Angel}}'' turning out to be vitally important for the last-ever episode of ''[[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Buffy]]''. (This also highlights one of the few dangers of crossovers; if you or a fan watched only the ''{{Series/Buffy|TheVampireSlayer}}'' show, but not ''Series/{{Angel}}'', this particular amulet appeared to [[DeusExMachina come totally out of nowhere to save the day]]....) Sometimes this is done to [[PoorlyDisguisedPilot provide the lead-in for a spin-off show]], as happened with both of the ''Series/{{CSI}}'' spin-offs.

Alternatively, a single popular character can cross over from one show into the other, for a brief guest appearance; this has the effect of attracting that character's fans from the other show without requiring the writing teams to sync up or creating DVD- and arc-unfriendly episodes. This is very common in comic books, in which most characters are part of a larger universe, such as the Franchise/MarvelUniverse or Franchise/TheDCU. It happens less often in TV and movie properties based on comic books, since they are often made by different production companies.
