The series finale was edited into three half-hour episodes for syndication. Part one of the 1 hour "200th Episode Celebration" episode, edited into two parts for syndication, is the only syndicated episode that features the complete opening sequence used throughout the series. The first scene of the teaser of the series' first episode, where Sam walks from the Pool Room into the Bar area of Cheers', was edited completely out of the syndicated broadcast.
Digitally Remastered episodes began circulating in syndication in Fall 2001. Current digitally remastered repeats on Nick at Nite feature the complete opening credit sequence.
