So I've been binge watching the old show Cheers on Hulu. I came Episode 11 of Season 7. Check out this opening sequence! How cool is that? Thanks, Eric Siegel

Even more Lionel Trains on Cheers

Holy Smokes! OK, it's clear that someone involved with Cheers was a fan of Lionel. I already posted about a season 7 episode where Lionel trains were discussed, but check out this even better clip from Episode 6 of Season 8! Note the ZW, among other stuff! What's cool to think about is that I'm sure they had some train guys come onto the set to get that thing set up and running right. Thanks, Eric Siegel

A lot of people are always surprised when great actors come from comedy. The truth is doing good comedy takes WAY more acting chops than drama. If you can do good comedy, you can do anything. Think of all the great actors who started off in comedy... Woody Harrelson, Jim Carrey, Tom Hanks, Steve Martin, Robin Williams, Bill Murray...the list goes on and on. Comedy is such an underrated art form. That's where the academy awards should be going. They make loads of dramas every year, but how...

Love the part about the cattle car as I have one of the postwar ones. It came with a Lionel Lines S2 that was lost years ago.

Cheers and its spinoff, Frasier, are two of the best shows ever. I would also add Taxi, Seinfeld and more recently, the Big Bang Theory. Repeated watching of these shows illustrates the brilliant writing and the fine acting chops of the ensemble casts, which makes them CLASSICS! Christopher Lloyd and the Charles brothers had a hand in several of these fine comedies.

Yeah, it's funny you say that. As I've been watching the series, I've noticed that my 16 year old son enjoys watching it and thinks it's really funny. I guess good writing holds up across generations. He grew up seeing Woody Harrelson in big movies, and was blown away to see him being funny in a TV show. -Eric

Wasnt there also an episode where they had trains on the bar and Norm uses the uncoupler track to snag a beer that’s riding on a flatcar?

Woody H really evolved into a fine dramatic actor since Cheers.

I had somehow missed that episode. Thanks for sharing. A few years ago, I watched a few episodes of Cheers on Netflix with my then 18-year-old daughter. I realized that television shows from 30 years ago might not be to her taste so I told her that if it she didn't like Cheers, we could watch something else that she wanted. She said: "No, this is good. It's sweet. They take their time, tell the story, and allow the jokes to just happen." (She said this to contrast the way many modern sitcoms...

We still watch the reruns of many of these shows- still as funny as the day they were written. For the Seinfeld fans this will bring a smile- Marble Rye.....the episode was on the other night. Tears running down my face Thanks for posting this.

Good find! My kids (18 and 15) like to watch old shows with me too. I enjoy showing them the TV shows and movies I grew up watching. Good TV truly stands the test of time...

That's a cool model, Gene. I went to college in the Boston area while the show was in production, and made a few pilgrimages to the "Cheers" bar myself. Of course it looked nothing like the set once inside, but that never mattered...pride of place was enough. My six year-old loves the Three Stooges; more good TV that stands the test of time!

Yes. "Tragedy is easy...it's comedy that's hard". "Dying is easy; comedy is hard". Quoting somebody - just not sure whom. Still true.

I do remember this episode. I wonder how much beer they spilled before they got a complete sequence. After all - this was pre-Odyssey.

Lionel trains show up on 'King of Queens' too.....wonder if there is a connection??? One episode centers on a train show. Doug's dad wants to get there early so he will not be set up near 'those monorail freaks'.....

Great clip but they used the wrong controller for the 022 turnout. We had a diner near where I used to live called the Hamburger ChooChoo- they had a O-gauge track on the counter to bring your food out from the kitchen. Place burned down years ago due to a grease fire.

Cheers was a great show. Even more so now that I know they were fellow Lionel fans. I was born in 1984, I remember my Dad watching it when I was young. I need to go back and watch it also. Keep up the good work Eric!

Ha, thanks. If trains were my full time job, maybe. My goal is to put out one video per week, but that doesn't always work out because some videos take a while to shoot, plus my non-train life eats up time as well. -Eric
