Frasier




Frasier Cast


Series Description
    


The Frasier TV show was a 30 minute comedy series on NBC that was a "spin-off" of the, "Cheers TV Show". Dr. Frasier Crane moved from Boston to Seattle, Washington, his hometown. He got a job as an on the air psychiatrist on a Seattle radio station talk show. He reluctantly lived with his father who was a retired police officer who had health problems due to his having been shot on duty. Along with his father came a scruffy little dog and a cute lady health care worker from England. Frasier also had a brother who was also a psychiatrist and just as self-centered as Frasier. Frasier was still the "know it all" who thought that he knew better than everyone else while failing miserable at running his own life.

Frasier Trivia

Kelsey Grammer has had some problems with substance abuse. Fans often have trouble understanding how a TV star could allow drugs to get the better of themselves. We forget that stars have most of the same problems that we do. Kelsey, for example, has had to deal with the murders of both his sister and his father! To make matters worse, their deaths happened at different times! Fame and fortune do not make such events easier to deal with.

If the phone-in callers to Frasier's radio show sounded especially realistic to you, it's probably due to the fact that actors would often phone in their lines rather than come to the studio to read them! No travel time and no sound editing were required!

The Frasier TV show had a pretty sweet time slot for its first season. It followed the hit series "Seinfeld" with a huge comedy audience! The other networks weren't broadcasting any real competition at that time. ABC was airing the last half-hour of "Matlock" which, while a popular show, it didn't draw any comedy viewers. CBS was running "Eye to Eye With Connie Chung" and the FOX series, "Herman's Head" was a comedy in its final season with slipping ratings.

Frasier was the only TV series to have won five consecutive Emmys for "Outstanding Comedy Series" at the time it left the air!

Frasier and his father lived at the fictional, high-class Elliot Bay Towers condominiums in unit #1901. From things said in various episodes, we know that the complex was at least 20 stories tall and had at least 14 units per floor. It was named after Elliot Bay which is the body of water that Seattle sits on and it's location is somewhere on the southern side of Queen Anne Hill and on Queen Anne Avenue. Many fans think that Frasier lived in an apartment building but his "Condominium Association" meetings were mentioned a few times throughout the series.

The call letters of the radio station that Frasier broadcasted his show from were "KACL".

We all realize that the TV personas of actors can be dramatically different from their real life personas. As a perfect example of this, on the air David Hyde Pierce's character was a lover of fine things while John Mahoney's character was an everyday Joe who drank canned beer and watched football from his raggedy old chair. In real life, however, David Hyde Pierce had little interest in the finer things until John Mahoney introduced him to fine wines and the opera!

Frasier Crane had never mentioned having a brother on "Cheers". In fact, there had been vague references on that series to his being an only child. The first few scripts were written that way but then one of the show's producers saw a photo of David Hyde Pierce and said that he was a "clone" of Kelsey Grammer the way he looked when Cheers first went on the air. The storyline was therefore changed so that Frasier would have a younger brother who would be so much like him that they would constantly be at each other's throats!

Many TV fans are aware of the Cast on the TV series, "Friends" receiving $1 Million per episode but Kelsey Grammer beat that in Frasier's final season when he was paid a record $38 Million. That set a new record at more than $1.5 Million per episode!

In another record-setting event, David Hyde Pierce was nominated for an Emmy for the same character more times than any other actor in the "Best Supporting Actor" category. Kelsey Grammer also became the only actor to have been nominated for the same character on three different series. In addition to the obvious Cheers and Frasier nominations, Kelsey also got one for appearing as Frasier Crane on an episode of the "Wings TV Show!


Frasier Theme Song

Title: "Tossed Salad And Scrambled Eggs"

Written By: "Darryl Phinessee" & "Bruce Miller"

Performed By: "Kelsey Krammer"

Hey baby, I hear the blues a-callin',
Tossed salad and scrambled eggs

Oh My
Mercy! (Or Sometimes "Quite stylish")

And maybe I seem a bit confused,
Yeah maybe, but I got you pegged!
Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha!

But I don't know what to do with those tossed salads and scrambled eggs.
They're callin' again.


There were several different last lines of the Frasier theme song used from week to week.
Here are all those we're aware of:

  1. They're callin' again.
  2. Good night, Seattle, we love you.
  3. What is a boy to do. Good night.
  4. Frasier has left the building.
  5. Thank You!
  6. Scambled eggs all over my face. What is a boy to do. Goodnight, everybody.
  7. See you next year, we love ya.
