The Theme Song Of Which Popular TV Show Was Actually Performed By The Star Of The Show?

Cheers
Frasier
Friends
Beverly Hills 90210
The First U.S. President To Publish A Work Of Fiction Was?

Answer: Frasier

Now here’s a novelty among TV shows: a theme song sung by the show’s star. In that regard the popular show Frasier (1993-2004) stood out, even if the fans never realized it.

Unless you were a trivia buff or scrutinized the credits very closely, it’s quite likely you never realized that the distinct “Tossed Salad and Scrambled Eggs” theme song of the hit show was sung by none other than the show’s lead: Kelsey Grammar.

We like to pack our trivia together when possible, so here’s an additional bit courtesy of the show. Thanks to his role on Cheers as Dr. Frasier Crane and then his continued role in the eponymous spin-off Frasier, Kelsey Grammar ties with two other actors (James Arness in Gunsmoke, and Richard Belzer in Homicide: Life on the Street and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit) for the longest running portrayal of a television character.
