    So I was going through my G1 cartoon screenshots today. Looking in my B.O.T. folder, something caught my eye... I realized that a couple of the background human characters looked familiar. Very familiar.

    It turns out that two of the students at Benjamin Franklin Pierce high school are none other than Kimber and Jerrica Benton, from Hasbro's Jem doll line!

    Well... okay, they probably aren't really the characters, as I believe they were both already out of high school at the time. But still. Inter-series model reusage!

    Actually, there's one more woman behind the Jerrica character model I pasted onto that pic.

    ... of course, I had previously failed to notice that there are two guys in business suits sitting in a high school science class. What the heck?

    I think it was just model reuse. Like how Weirdwolf and numerous G1s are shown in Armada as generic Transformers.

    I'm wondering what's up with the guy in the blue jacket on the right. Looks like he should be holding someone up or something!

    Transformers/ gijoe/ inhumanoids/ jem all take place in the same universe.

    The same reporter is in all four shows.

    cobra commander and flint were on transformers.

    Sci-fi is watching the news on gijoe and prowl, ironhide, and jazz (i think) are on the news.

    Inhumanoids are on the news in a episode of jem.

    Ace from gijoe joins the inhumaoids later!

    Cold slither song from gijoe is playing in auto-bop.

    Dinobot island started in gijoe first!

    The synthoids from "only human" started in a episode of gijoe called "no place like springfield."

    An interesting article about all the connections between shows. Funny haw a member of GI Joe would see a giant robot on the news and think nothing of it.

    In many parts the article refers to similarities between shows written by the same person as "inside jokes" or the author "having a little fun." Sounds like some of those were more about getting the most use out of a single idea. Kinda how Howie Mandel used the same voice for Gizmo, Skeeter, and Bobby.

    and another TF/MASH cross over Micheal Bell (voice of Prowl) played a greedy helicopter pilot in one episode of MASH.
