The incredible thing about the television program Cheers was the number of outstanding characters it was able to develop. Another was the fact that in spite of the changing lineup in the cast that the strength of these characters was more than enough to anchor the show and Cliff Clavin was one of these individuals.

Cliff Clavin from MEGO CORP.

The original script for the 1982 pilot, “Give Me a Ring Sometime”, did not include Norm Peterson or Cliff Clavin. George Wendt and John Ratzenberger originally auditioned for a minor character, George, and George Wendt was hired for that role. George was Diane Chambers’ first customer, had one line (consisting of the order, “Beer!”) and was intended for only one episode.
Since Wendt was cast as George (who evolved into Norm Peterson), Ratzenberger suggested to the producers that a know-it-all character should be added; this led to the creation of Cliff Clavin. Ratzenberger based his role on a police officer in his hometown of Bridgeport, Connecticut. Cliff was originally a security guard, but two days before the pilot’s filming he was changed to a postman; the producers thought a postman would be more knowledgeable than a guard. Ratzenberger agreed to seven episodes of the first season, but his role expanded.
