Martin Crane (played by John Mahoney) is the father of Frasier Crane. Although he is mentioned in one episode to be a deceased research scientist, it is revealed in Frasier that he is actually a cop.

Although he never appears in Cheers, he does visit Boston in Cheerful Goodbyes, where he becomes good friends with Norm Peterson.

An interesting fact is that Crane is played by the same actor as Sy Flembeck, a guest role from Cheers who speaks a few lines with Frasier.
