Everyone remembers how iconic Cheers was. It was really one of the greatest shows of its time, and also helped launch another hit sitcom as well. Frasier was one of the longest running sitcoms ever, and as far as spin-offs go, it doesn't get much better!
Cheers came out in 1982, and continued to run for 275 episodes. The finale of the 11th season aired on May 20, 1993, but shortly after it ended, Frasier began.
Premiering in September 1993, Fraiser was the perfect follow up. It was witty and smart, and millions of people loved it. The thing is, just because Frasier was the most successful spin-off, doesn't mean it was the only one.
Turns out, there was a spin-off of Cheers that came out years before Frasier; it just wasn't as popular.
