200th Anniversary Special

Episode Info

In an event deemed worthy of a TV Guide cover, the cast and crew of Cheers celebrates the series' 200th episode. Moderated by John McLaughlin of The McLaughlin Group fame, this special telecast not only features the then-current cast of Cheers, but also several former regulars and semi-regulars. Foremost among the latter is Shelley Long, whose much-publicized acrimonious exit from the series in 1987 made viewers wonder if she would dare wander into any sort of "reunion" (but she did). Among the highlights from past episodes are several outtakes, the fabled food fight from the 1986 Thanksgiving episode, and the 1989 dream sequences in which Sam (Ted Danson) forces himself on Rebecca (Kirstie Alley), and vice versa. Originally telecast as a one-hour special, this episode has since been divided into two half-hours for syndication.
