Hillary Norman "Norm" Peterson is one of the main patrons at Cheers, known for sitting in the same stool at the bar every day. Norm is the most loyal customer Cheers has had since anyone can remember. His bar tab extends back to when he was referred to as "that skinny guy at the end of the bar", and by the end of the series its total is literally astronomical. Norm was originally an accountant, but then later became a housepainter.

Norm likely went to Cheers long before Sam Malone bought the bar, due to the fact Coach didn't know who Gus (previous owner of Cheers) was and Norm did.
