Aside from Frasier (1993), Cheers only spun off one other series, The Tortellis (1987). The series focused on Carla's ex-husband Nick, and aired for 13 episodes in the winter/spring of 1987. After its cancellation, the show's characters Nick, Loretta, Anthony and Annie returned to their recurring status on Cheers. While Wings (1990) was created and produced by Cheers writers and characters crossed over between the two shows, it was considered more of a companion show and in no way a spin off of Cheers.

[the bar is littered with ingredients as Diane is trying to make a Bloody Mary]
Lot of ingredients in a Bloody Mary, Sam.
Yeah, I know. That's why we usually mix up 5 gallons and put it in the refrigerator beforehand. How come doing this, Carla? Why'd you let her do it?
I wanted to see her try and make vodka.

The perfect setting for any tv show in my opinion, was this little bar in Boston. After a couple of so so seasons (NBC claims to have left it on because they had nothing else to air) the show really hit its stride in the mid 80s, with the core being the romance between Sam and Diane. But lending a comic hand were Norm, the unemployed accountant, Cliff the know-it-all mailman, Carla the spitfire waitress, Coach the dim-witted bartender (who passed away in the 85 season), Woody the second dim-witted bartender, and in later years Frasier the neurotic shrink. After the 87 season Shelley Long (Diane)left the show to pursue a film career, unsuccessfully. She was replaced, by my personal preference, with Kirstie Alley as Sams love interest and female foil. Too many high points along the years to mention, but top episodes would be the one where Woody and Sam try and kiss Rebecca, any episode dealing with Garys Old Towne Tavern, Rebeccas visiting sister, and maybe the night at the opera episode. ("Get a load of the warheads on that cellist!") Only real downside was the final episode, which didnt really tie up loose ends very well. None of the characters had any real life changes, the bar wasnt sold or destroyed, everyone stayed put, and the overall amount of laughs werent very strong. But there were so many other great moments that a bad send off can easily be overlooked.
