Rules that apply to crossover episodes. These rules apply to characters, locations etc. that are from the media that crossed over into The Simpsons.

Not notable

If you think an article is not notable, you can place the {{Delete}} template on the top of the article then bring the issue up on the deletion page. This will get viewed by others and then a verdict will be passed once there is enough discussion. A lot of articles may have to be handled on a case by case basis to deem whether it is notable or not.

If an article is obviously against the notability policy and you feel that it needs no discussion, list it here.
