Though “Cheers” has been off the air for a very long time, some of the show’s behind-the-scenes stories still float around until this day. One of them entails Ted Danson, Woody Harrelson and George Wendt out on a boat when some mushrooms came into play.
Danson, who now stars on “CSI,” told the story during an appearance on “Conan.” The trio were playing hooky out on the Pacific Ocean, when Danson remembers, “I think we did light up.” From there, he recalls skipping breakfast, which gave him the munchies. Danson continues, “Woody says, ‘Have you ever tried mushrooms?’ and I go, ‘No! I have a free day, I’m on a boat.'”
Since he was hungry, Danson admits he ate more than he probably should have, adding, “For the next three hours I died.” Danson says he forgot to breathe more than once. Luckily, Wendt hadn’t taken any mushrooms and was there to remind him how important it was to do so.
