Cheers Cast


Series Description

The Cheers TV show was a 30 minute comedy series on NBC about a bar with a colorfull cast of regulars. The main charachters are Sam Malone, the owner of the bar and a retired baseball player; Dr. Frasier - the "resident psychiatrist" who frequents the bar and could often use a little analysis himself; Norm - a semi-professional beer drinker and Cliff - a thirtysomething mailman who still lives with his mother. To get away from their "hum-drum" lives, they all come to the bar where "Everybody Knows Your Name".

Cheers Trivia

Sam Malone was originally supposed to be a retired football player on the TV show, but when the tall thin Ted Danson was cast for the role, they changed it to a retired baseball player.

The stage at Paramount studios where the series' episodes were shot is the same one where the spin-off series "Frasier" is now filmed.

Remember the episode where Sam & Diane stop their wedding ceremony at the last minute? In order to keep that ending a secret, they shot a different ending in front of the studio audience where they actually got married. This deception was to hide the fact that Shelly Long was leaving the Cheers cast.

Kate Mulgrew (Captain Kathryn Janeway from Star Trek Voyager) appeared in the only triple episode of the series called "Strange Bedfellows"?

In the episode "The Stork Brings a Crane", Woody checks into what the bar was before it was a bar and finds out that it was a House of Ill Repute.

The scenes shot of the outside of the bar were actually the "Bull and Finch Pub" in Boston.

Norm and Cliff guest-starred on an episode of the TV show "Wings". They took Sandpiper Air to go on a fishing trip but ended out spending all their time in bars.

Cheers was nearly canceled in its first season.

There were 3 bachelor party episodes on the TV show and all of them had something happen which brought them to an abrupt end! Sam's ends when Shelley Long (as the girl in the cake) throws cake in Ted Danson's face and storms out mad! Frasier's ends when he discovers that the stripper is one of his patients! Fitz's (Cliff's prospective father-in-law) ends when Fitz dies (not much point in going on, huh?)

Towards the end of the final Cheers episode, Sam straightens a crooked picture of an American Indian. This was a tribute to cast member Nicholas Colasanto who played the role of "Coach" till his death in 1985. The picture belonged to Colasanto and meant a lot to him.

George Wendt (Norm) and John Ratzenberger (Norm) sued in 1982 because the Producers of the TV show put robots that George and John claimed resembled them at a chain of Cheers themed airport bars without their permission.


Cheers Theme

Title: "Where Everbody Knows Your Name"

By: "Gary Portnoy" and "Judy Hart Angelo"

Makin' your way in the world today takes everything you've got.
Takin' a break from all your worries, sure would help a lot.
Wouldn't you like to get away?


Sometimes you want to go, where everybody knows your name,
and they're always glad you came.
You wanna be where you can see, our troubles are all the same,
You wanna be where everybody knows your name.


You wanna go where people know, people are all the same,
You wanna go where everybody knows your name.
