Kinda straddling the Vertigo line but did Morpheus cameo in Sandman Mystery Theatre?

There's also a friendly chat between Dr. D and Jonathan "Scarecrow" Crane when the former leaves Arkham.

And then there's that "Children's Crusade" crossover they did, which is where the two ghost boys from Sandman are reintroduced as the Dead Boy Detectives (kinda funny how those two wound up with such a light-hearted premise. Their initial appearance is one of the most horrific comics I've ever read, and the one of the two Sandman chapters I have the most trouble rereading). It involves a magical realm where children live free from adults. This story may have influenced a certain group-dream-for-kids thing I wrote, but that's getting off topic.

Oh, and Tim Hunter visits the Dreaming in the original Books of Magic mini, which ties together all the magical aspects of the DCU at the time.

Tim’s just a good bridge between main DC and Vertigo anyway mostly due to being recruited by the Trenchcoat Brigade. But he’s also gone clubbing with Death, and got roped into N52 Justice League Dark.
