Oh, the humanity.
Gerry, you will never know how much I needed to see this today! Thanks so much for the laugh. WKRP was one of my favorite shows and this episode was one of the best (although the one where Johnny & Venus played the gay couple moving into Gone With the Wind Estates was right up there as well). Happy Turkey Day to you and yours!
The world wouldn’t be in such a screwed up mess if we all had a little more Dr. Johnny Fever in us.
” As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly.” One of the greatest lines in sitcom history.
Too true. And one of the best deliveries.
I can attest that Turkeys can fly and higher than you think. I worked the ramp for American Airlines for 21 years. One morning there was a wild turkey running around the ramp. We ran towards it and it flew from the ground to the top of a 727 tail. We watched him for awhile and when we were supposed to push the plane off the gate, we told the captain we couldn’t. Then the turkey flew off the tail and ran around when the state police and airport operations chased him as he started flying short distances at a time. The Captain and First Officer were looking out the cockpit window and were laughing at the chase.
Great story Doug! What a shame about AA. My wife’s a flight attendant. I hope your pension is OK.
One of the funniest tv shows of all time and the great Turkey Drop is one of their funniest episodes. I laughed so hard I had tears streaming down.
Thanks for posting and have a happy Thanksgiving!
Thanks for a great memory and a laugh to end the day. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
As we both know, this is fairly close to what TV and radio promotion departments actually do. I think you were still at Channel 3 when the promotion guys and a supermarket were partners in a cookout at Bushnell Park that turned unpleasant when some homeless guys muscled to the head of the line and made it their banquet. There was a near riot and that evening, when Denise asked how we should describe it on the news, I suggested, “a bloody melee that got out of hand.” She still reminds me. Happy Thanksgiving.
A banquet of bonhomie. Happy Thanksgiving to you too.
One of my favorite episodes of that show. Happy Thanksgiving
The full “Turkeys Away” episode is available at Hulu.com 🙂
