Almost but not quite: on an episode of MARY TYLER MOOR, Mary Richards "stayed out all night," and Norman Lear, whose shows were SO much more "mature," could not resist a bit of snark by having his characters reference the MTM episode on MAUDE.

Did Mork appear in Happy Days? Or was it the other way round?

Alan Hale Jr. showed up in an episode of Wild Wild West, and cracks a joke at end of being marooned on a deserted island (cue Gilligan's Island music).

Mork appeared in Happy Days, but it was the character's first appearance before being spun off, so isn't even a crossover.

Mork was definitely out there for a show like "Happy Days," but like my "Maude"/"All In The Family" example, he was established as being part of that reality, as "Mork and Mindy" was a spinoff series from "Happy Days." So, I don't really could t his appearance as "crazy" as Boss Hogg on "Alice."

Martin Short's Ed Grimley character appeared not only on SCTV, but carried it over to Saturday Night Live (SNL).

George and "Weezie" Jefferson, Arnold Jackson and Philip Drummond appeared on the final episode of THE FRESH PRINCE OF BEL-AIR

Remember, Mork first appeared on HAPPY DAYS as a character in a dream. After the launch of MORK AND MINDY the ending of the HD episode was reshot to make Mork real.

Magnum, P.I. and Simon & Simon also crossed over. It was that crossover that boosted Simon & Simon in to being a Top 10 hit.

Same network, both P.I. shows set in sunny climes with ensembles including rich stuffy dudes and Vietnam vets. 

Not exactly oil and water.

An early episode off WWW featured stock footage of a small boat being tossed on a stormy sea—the same footage used in the opening of GILLIGAN.

Well, PASSIONS did include supernatural elements, including witches. 

(Unfortunately, not another DARK SHADOWS. PASSIONS was straight up cornball, if I remember right....)
