Where Everybody Knows Your Name Is Ours

7/11/2008 1:18 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A bar in Illinois that dared to call itself "Cheers" is getting the legal 86 from the folks that cooked up the show.

According to the lawsuit, the bar is using the exact same name and logo as the "Cheers" bars all over the country ... which are licensed by CBS. You'd have to have the mental capacity of Woody Boyd to jack the signature sign like these people did and not think CBS would come after you.

Maybe it's all over for the Illinois "Cheers" anyway -- a call to the bar said that the phone had been disconnected.
