** Maris was supposed to make a physical appearance on the show, but this never happened because so many odd descriptions of her appearance were given that it was believed that no human alive could play the role.

* HeyItsThatVoice: It was not uncommon for celebrities to make cameos as callers to Frasier's show.
** The final episode of many (but not all) seasons replace the usual end of episode gag with a "thanks for calling" montage listing the cameos made that season.
*** One caller called Frasier and complained about her meddling in laws and the voice sounds suspiciously like [[EverybodyLovesRaymond Debra Barone]].

Added DiffLines:

* BannedEpisode: "Dr. Nora" was pulled from syndication packages after the real Dr. Laura Schlessinger complained. Ironically, it wasn't herself being parodied that Schlessinger took issue with- rather, it was the show taking on her mother, who she viewed as being off-limits due to not being a public figure. The episode ''has'' since reappeared on cable and on Netflix.

** Other examples include [[{{Scrubs}} John C. McGinley]] who appeared as a plumber that turned out to be a former bully, and [[{{Series/Firefly}} Alan Tudyk]] as one of Frasier's neighbors. A very young Creator/ZooeyDeschanel plays Roz' cousin in Season 10.

* CastingGag: Notorious chauvinist "Bulldog" Briscoe played by real-life openly gay activist Dan Butler.
** Daphne's family and its multitude of inconsistent {{British Accent}}s. Particularly on the part of the [[FakeBrit Australian playing Simon]], who loves Mel Gibson and who Frasier once refers to as a "[[TheThingThatWouldNotLeave boomerang]]."
** In one episode Frasier and Niles try to help a former Shakespearian actor Jackson Hedley revive his theatrical
career by producing him in a one man version of ''Theatre/{{Hamlet}}'', but [[spoiler:they realize to their horror that he's actually a terrible actor, who does a laughably overwrought performance of the play]]. The gag is that Hedley is played by Creator/DerekJacobi, an acclaimed Shakespearian actor.
** In the penultimate episode, "Crock Tales", Rosie Perez guest stars
as a ballerina.Lizbeth. Perez was originally going to be Martin's physical therapist and housekeeper instead of Jane Leeves.

Added DiffLines:

* FunctionalAddict: Creator/KelseyGrammer's personal problems became such a problem that the cast and crew staged multiple interventions and even wrote DayInTheLimelight scripts for other characters so that he could get treatment. Despite it all, behind-the-scenes reports say that while Grammer would spent most of the time in a haze, he'd snap into character and perform with full energy before shutting down once the cameras cut.

** Jane Leeves was cast as Holly in the ''[[Series/RedDwarf Red Dwarf USA]]'' pilot. That never had a chance of getting picked up, but if it had, someone else probably would have been cast as Daphne.
