Taxi

HYPNOTIC BRIDGE traversal to Bob James flute/vibraphone theme started this proto-Cheers ensemblecom. DANNY DE VITO was bastardish boss Louie de Palma, JUDD HIRSCH and MARILU HENNER were the “normal” leads. TONY DANZA was thick ex-boxer, CHRISTOPHER “DOC” LLOYD was spaced-out freak Jim Ignatowski and, of course, ANDY KAUFMAN as Latka Gravas. Seminal, before that word stopped being, well, seminal. What happens when it rains? Monetary gains.

    The theme tune, the taxi that drove itself at the end, the famous quote above, a cult show over here and quite witty once you listened carefully.

    “Night, Mr. Walters.” “Ungnhnhnnn.”

    The theme was called Angela, & originally written just to score an early episode with a character of that name, but the original main theme tune was rejected & it was promoted to the theme.
