The camera then zoomed out into infinity. It was all in Tommy's head it seemed. This project does not attempt to show which shows are connected to which other shows in the Westphall universe. Instead, this project concentrates on showing where those shows were located on a map. It shows programs which coexisted in the same cities and also which programs were never quite pinned down to a set location [see far right snowglobe.] These are all the shows I could find that connected to the original St. Elsewhere as of In these five snowglobes are contained not only the real locations of many shows but also my best guesstimates for fictitious towns and cities [i.e., TV's 1960s Batman is placed in New York City as it's often referred to as Gotham.] Data compiled and graphics created by dave columbus ©2013 July 4th 2013.

But soon it became apparent that this dream was connected to other shows which made them all part of the dream. And soon, But for now, I'm calling it done. There may be an update in the future, but then again, It excludes any type of reality show context [i.e., Hi Honey, I'm Home] using character and product references only. These maps are my subjective attempt to pin down the locations. Other fans may have different ideas. maybe not... there were hundreds of shows connected to Tommy's dream world.

Five snowglobes depicting the locations of the shows in the Tommy Westphall Universe. Not a graphic of the connections but where the shows took place [or a guesstimate of their location].
