Not exactly the mash-up you'd expect, perhaps - but speaking as a long-time cinephile who has also been an advocate for anime for many years, I have to say it warms my heart.

A ghost princess comes upon Gene Kelly's possessed dancing shoes, and the two get together for a little dance routine. It's adorable, and if you're into film history and the concept of geeks from vastly different generations recognizing each other, life-affirming.

That probably makes this sound overly important - but if the Doctor could bring fans together across time periods, I'd like to imagine he'd get them to make this.
