Taxi Trivia

*The idea for the show was from an article in an issue of the New Yorker magazine about cab drivers' lives.

*Due to almost identical plotlines and storylines, Taxi has often been referred to as a forerunner for the series "Cheers". Danny DeVito (Louie De Palma) is married to Rhea Perlman (Carla on Cheers).

*Tony Danza's character on the tv show dreamed of being a professional fighter. In real life, Tony Danza actually was a fighter before Taxi.

*Marilu Henner dated both Tony Danza and Judd Hirsch during the show's run (Not at the same time).

*When Danny DeVito was starting out in the business, he had to have a roommate to make ends meet. His roommate was Michael Douglas.




 

 


*His role as "Reverend Jim" was not the first time that Christopher Lloyd was seen as a "less than stable" person. In 1975, three years before Taxi began, he had a role in "One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest" as one of the mental patients. Oh, by the way, Danny DeVito also played one of the mental patients in that movie!
 
*Andy Kaufman loved to confuse his audiences by doing something they would never suspect or couldn't understand. He appeared on the very first episode of Saturday Night Live. He played a record with the theme song to "Mighty Mouse". He just stood there looking at the audience while it played and would only sing the words, "Here I Come To Save The Day". It was hilarious, but you couldn't figure out why. When he died, people wouldn't believe it. They thought it was just another one of his gags. Oh yeah, he was also Elvis Presley's favorite as an Elvis impersonator.
