Cougar Town may not be on the air right now (let’s just say we’ve been spending ample time with Big Carl to ease the pain), but the cul-de-sac crew is, thankfully, still part of the prime time television line-up. In fact, just last night Cougar Town fans could find Laurie sipping coffee at the very same outdoor stand that Happy Endings‘ Dave, Max, and Brad were visiting! (Is it just us, or would Max and Laurie make spectacular friends? Sorry, Penny! Pennnny Caaaaannnn!) Check it out:
But the lightning-fast moment (Busy Philipps showed up early in the episode, right around the two-and-a-half-minute mark… thanks DVR!) wasn’t the first — or last — time the Cougar Town gang popped up on our other favorite shows. As we noted last month, the stars of the ABC comedy will be making crossovers onto a variety of shows, from Castle to The Middle to How I Met Your Mother. (Hey, maybe Laurie is the mother! Or, horror of horrors, Barb.)
But was it the best one yet? Now that Cougar Town and Community have become something of kindred television spirits (in that they’ve both been benched) Abed’s hilarious, easier-to-spot appearance on Cougar Town and Laurie (again!) and Travis’ visit to Community feel even more special than before.
Of course, it was just as fun to watch the Cougar Town characters try their hand at drama, like when Andy found his way to Grey’s Anatomy or when Jules and Ellie popped up as a couple on Private Practice. So, I’m curious, PopWatchers, who has had the best crossover appearance so far? Have you — thanks to all the heads up via Twitter — been able to find them every time? Who do you want to see show up next? And on what series would you like to see them? Share in the comments section and vote below to pick your favorite.
