The character of Dr. Frasier Crane (Kelsey Grammer) made a name for himself in Cheers but returned to Seattle to work as a radio psychiatrist in the successful spin-off, Frasier. The series held the record for most Emmy awards (37!) in a comedy or drama until Game of Thrones unseated it in 2016.

Other beloved characters included Niles, Daphne, Roz, and Martin (although Eddie the dog got more fan mail than any of his human costars). Fun fact: Grammer was nominated for an Emmy award for playing Frasier on three different shows: Cheers, Frasier, and Wings, in which he made a guest appearance.

This animated show made TV history.
