Alternatively, if you don't want to count Muppet Magazine:

The Two-Headed Monster appeared in The Muppet Movie in 1979 alongside Miss Piggy
and thereafter as above.

Ah, but can you do it in four moves without counting that interview? There's at least one way to do so.
 

Yes, like I said: 
Robin met the Two-Headed Monster in Sesame Street Episode 2480
The Two-Headed Monster appeared in The Muppet Movie in 1979 alongside Miss Piggy
Miss Piggy has met the Doctor in The Stolen Mirth, as mentioned a few pages back.

though I'm guessing you've got another route in mind.

Re: Multiversal Kevin Bacon

Sorry, I misread the alternate route. Here's my route:
Robin Williams met Mork in Mork & Mindy season 3 "Mork Meets Robin Williams"
Mork first met the Fonz in Happy Days season 5 "My Favorite Orkan"
The Fonz met Merlin in Fonz and the Happy Days Gang season 1 "Gone with the Wand"
Merlin first met Captain Britain in Captain Britain #1.

Not bad, but remember that mythological types like Merlin only count as the same individual if both appearances are from the same company's version - e.g. Marvel's Thor isn't DC's Thor.

Re: Multiversal Kevin Bacon

Okay replace Merlin with Dracula in an earlier episode of Fonz and the Happy Days Gang..
Dracula encountered Captain Britain in Captain Britain and MI-13.

That way Mork is still part of the path.

Similar problem with Dracula - as a public domain character, he counts, but he's considered a weak link unless it's the same company's Dracula. 

You can still make the route with Mork, but it just requires an extra step or two if we want to avoid public domain types. Fonz and the Happy Days Gang was made by Hanna Barbera. If we counted Hanna Barbera as part of Warners Bros, then FatHDG's Dracula, Merlin or Sherlock Holmes would also be DC's versions, and Superman met Dracula in Superman #180, Merlin in Superman #55, while Batman has met Sherlock a few times, such as Detective Comics #572. And from Batman or Superman you can get directly to Captain Britain via the Comic Relief Comic.

Even if we rule the characters from FatHDG as different (because Hanna Barbera wasn't bought out by Warners until decades later), we can still make the connection by adding in an additional step, because Scooby Doo is Hanna Barbera and he's met Sherlock and Dracula. So we'd go Dracula to Scooby, Scooby to Superman or Batman, and then from them to Captain Britain.

Looks like this one stumped everyone. So:
1) The Griffin made a (presumably unofficial) cameo in Uncanny X-Men #245, appearing in alien crowd scenes alongside a ridiculous number of other unauthorized cameos which I'll probably get round to documenting in one of the Strange Visitor from another canon threads. One of those other cameos is an Alien Xenomorph.
2) Another unauthorized Xenomorph turns up in Rebellion's The Vigilant Legacy, attending a supernatural tribunal for the new Doctor Sin. And one of the judges presiding over said tribunal is Judge Flint.

If we want to minimise the use of unauthorized cameos to just the Griffin's appearance, then we can go:
1) Griffin in Uncanny X-Men #245 to Wolverine
2) Wolverine and Judge Dredd both appeared in The Comic Relief Comic
3) Dredd and Robot Archie both turned up in 2000AD Prog 1280's A Night to Remember
4) Robot Archie appeared in the first story of Vigilant Legacy, as did Doctor Sin
5) Doctor Sin to Judge Flint in the second story in Vigilant Legacy

Re: Multiversal Kevin Bacon

Time for some that aren't so tricky, giving more people a chance to take part. Also, I'd request that zuckyd1 or Andy don't put forward a solution until at least two days have passed; both of you are too good and will almost certainly be able to produce a solution within minutes. I'm not sure if anyone other than the three of us are even reading this thread, but if they are, I'd like to leave the opportunity for them to participate. I'll similarly sit on my hands for a couple of days if anyone else puts in a challenge.

Since Fate is a Marvel character, and thus easily connected to other realities, the tricky bit here is getting from Daniel Gregg, the first half of the titular "The Ghost and Mrs. Muir," to somewhere else in the Omniverse. That is achieved via his appearance in The Ghost and Mrs. Muir Present the ABC Super Saturday Club Special, which aired on ABC on 4th September 1969. In that, Edward Mulhare and Hope Lange appeared in character as Daniel Gregg and Carolyn Muir, while Jonathan Frid appeared in character as Barnabas Collins from Dark Shadows.

Sadly there seems to be no surviving photographic or video evidence of this, but we do have TV listings:
https://comicvine1.cbsistatic.com/uploads/square_medium/8/85763/7560472-4291807691-Scree.jpg

https://comicvine1.cbsistatic.com/uploads/original/8/85763/7560473-7506765856-Scree.jpg

and from TwoMorrows' magazine RetroFan#9
https://comicvine1.cbsistatic.com/uploads/original/8/85763/7560471-ghostmrsmuir.jpg

Thus using fully authorized appearances we can go:
1. Daniel Gregg to Barnabas Collins via ABC SSCS
2. Barnabas Collins to Vampirella in Dark Shadows/Vampirella
3. Vampirella to Kulan Gath in Prophecy
4. Gath to Vision in Savage Avengers#0
5. Vision to Captain Fate in Captain Britain and MI13#13.

1. Burt Gummer and a Nevada-based giant albino worm-like creature named “El Blanco” appear in Tremors 3: Back to Perfection.

2. Jess Nevin’s story “A Root That Beareth Gall and Worms” (from Tales of the Shadowmen, Volume 5: The Vampires of Paris) mentions several species of worm-like creatures, including albino giants from the American west as well as “vegamorpha” (apparently meant to be the creatures from the 2006 film Slither).
(Another similarly tenuous link can be made between the Tremors franchise and Slither: Burt Gummer and Earl Bassett appear in the first two Tremors films, and Starla Grant of Slither teaches at Earl Bassett Community School.)

3. A few specimens of the Slither species have been collected by Taneleer Tivan, as seen in Guardians of the Galaxy. Both films were directed by James Gunn.

4. The 616 version of Tivan attempts to collect Spider-Man in Marvel Team-Up Annual #7.

5. Spider-Man meets Invincible in Marvel Team-Up (2005 series) #14.

6. Invincible and Rick Grimes appear in Invincible #81.

7. Rick Grimes and Daryl Dixon first meet in “Tell It to the Frogs”, an episode of the television series The Walking Dead (based on the comic of the same name by Invincible creator Robert Kirkman).

Not bad. Getting out from Tremors was always going to be the trickier end of the equation. The route I had in mind used a slightly different way out that tickled my fancy. I'll outline it in reverse, as it's that step to get to Tremors that is the most interesting (if a tad tenous):
1. Like your route, Daryl to Rick via many, many episodes of the TV version of Walking Dead.
2. Rick to Invincible via their joint membership of the parody version of the Guardians of the Globe in Guarding the Globe#1.
3. Invincible to Spidey, as above.
4. Spidey to Ash Williams in Marvel Zombies vs Army of Darkness.
5. Ash to Jason Voorhees in Freddy vs Jason vs Ash
6. Jason to Jack in Friday the 13th (the original movie)
7. Jack to Val (from Tremors) in, of all things, a series of UK phone adverts. This is the tenuous one. EE, a phone provider, has done a long running series of adverts starring Kevin Bacon. In some of the adverts, Kevin plays himself as a group of five housemates, one of whom is "Friday the 13th Kevin Bacon." I won't name the others - it's funnier to see the advert for yourself.


And in a second advert, they need another Kevin Bacon to take advantage of a 2-for-1 cinema ticket offer, and they run through options of who to call. Though we don't see him, they do name check "Tremors Kevin Bacon."


So he doesn't appear (tenuous) and they don't call any of the Bacons by their character names (tenuous), but they are undeniably those characters and besides, it amuses me to use Kevin Bacon himself in a "degrees of Kevin Bacon" thread.

8. And of course from Val to Burt via Tremors.
