The joke: "Today is Doc Severinsen's birthday. You know, Doc is so old, when he was a kid, he never blew out candles on his birthday cake. They didn't have fire yet." It is obviously rejected by NBC. However Norm doctors the rejection letter to make it look like an acceptance letter, since Cliff is feeling so down. When Cliff reads the letter, he's elated, so much so, he buys three round trip tickets to Los Angeles, planning to watch Johnny's show live when his joke should be used. The three ...

Did You Know?


The Tonight Show scene was filmed after a real taping of the show. The audience was asked to stay for an extra half-hour. It took director James Burrows only 15 minutes to shoot the Cheers scene, which took two takes. See more »


Since 1959, The Tonight Show has always been recorded in the afternoon and then aired in its regular time slot. Thus, the gang at Cheers could not be watching the show live. See more »


Cliff Clavin: [laughing] Yeah, there'll be a lawsuit, that's for sure. In a year, this is gonna be the Clavin Broadcasting Company.
Security Guard: Yep, his name's in the computer. And here's a flash: he's a Postal worker.

Heeeeeere's... Cliffy! (#10.24)
27 June 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Cliff's joke contributions to The Tonight's show with Johnny Carson keep getting rejected. Norm feels bad for him and fakes the letter of rejection into the letter of acceptance. So Cliff gets tickets for himself, his mom an Norm to go see the show. Norm arranges that the joke is actually read.

Really enjoyed this episode. I love to see Norm being so nice to Cliff and caring for him. And it is great to see Cliff having a happy time. The shots from their vacation were awesome. And the whole show with Cliff's mom instructing Johnny Carson how to read the joke until people laugh was so well timed and done, I kept on laughing all the time through it.
