WKRP’s “Turkey Drop” Aired 41 Years Ago Today
Of all the TV holiday episodes this is the quintessential episode from "WKRP In Cincinnati".
I remember watching this with my dad and I had never, in my life, seen him laugh so hard. It's a memory that will always be with me.
I really think they should rerun this episode every Thanksgiving. I wonder if they, when they taped this episode, had any idea how iconic it would become?
The show wrapped up with one of the greatest tag lines of all time with Mr Carlson saying “As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly.”
Enjoy the video. I've watched it 5 times while typing this article and I'll probably watch it 5 more times today.
