Can You Guess This TV Theme? #43 - Answer

Congratulations to Sam for correctly guessing that this week's TV theme was from 'Taxi'!



Taxi followed the lives and relationships of the employees of the Sunshine Taxi Company. Danny DeVito played the taxi dispatcher with a Napoleon complex, Louie De Palma, watching from his tower over his ragtag crew of drivers.

The crew included Judd Hirsch as driver Alex Rieger, Marilu Henner as artist and driver Elaine Nardo, Tony Danza as boxer and driver Tony Banta, Jeff Conaway as actor and driver Bobby Wheeler, Christoper Lloyd as Reverend Jim Ignatowski, and Andy Kaufman as mechanic Latka Gravas and Carol Kane as Latka's wife Simka....

I do have to admit that I have a bit of a selfish reason for choosing Taxi as this week's TV theme.... This scene from Taxi may be the funniest scene ever on television.... It makes me laugh out loud every time I see it! Christopher Lloyd (who went on to play Doctor Emmett Brown in the "Back To The Future" series) needs to renew his driver's license and the gang all head down to the DMV to help him out. The entire scene is very funny, but if you want to skip to the best part, go four minutes into the video.

  6. I loved Taxi! I still would watch this show if it was on. The theme song used to make me sad as a kid, weird right? Did you know Tony Danza was from my neighborhood? As was Ed Burns and Steve Buschemi :)

  7. I have to admit that I have only seen like one or two episodes of taxi. I think I saw an Andy Kaufman special.

    I have never seen a young Christopher Lloyd. I thought he was born old.
