Series Info

The classic sitcom set at New York's Sunshine Cab Co. won three straight Emmys as Outstanding Comedy Series and had one of the all-time great ensembles, including Judd Hirsch, Danny DeVito, Andy Kaufman, Marilu Henner, Tony Danza and Jeff Conaway. The episodes (from the producers who had worked on `The Mary Tyler Moore Show,' `Bob Newhart' and other series from MTM Productions) could veer hilariously from the soulful to the sophisticated to the surreal. `Taxi' ran five seasons (and deserved 10).
