John Ratzenberger, Cliff the Postman on “Cheers,” Records Plea for USPS


John Ratzenberger, who played beloved postman Cliff Clavin in the hit comedy “Cheers,” filmed an appeal for people to support the post office.

“You know the post office is in a bit of trouble right now,” he says. “It’s definitely in the news, being bounced around so I got an idea. Why not do all your Christmas shopping early at the post store? ”

The USPS grabbed the headlines amid fears that the Trump administration was seeking to undermine the agency months before election day in a year when many are expected to vote by mail due to the pandemic.

Ratzenberger recorded the public service announcement at the request of musician Tim Kasher via the Cameo video service where, for a fee, a celebrity will record a message.

Kosher shared the video on his verified social media accounts.

“Cliff Clavin says” Save the post office! “” Kasher wrote in the caption of the video on his Instagram account. “I went on Cameo and asked John Ratzenberger to appeal to the American people to help save the post office – he answered! And it’s so awesome !! #saveusps #usps »

“Cheers” aired on NBC from 1982 to 1993 and remained popular in reruns.
