WKRP in Cincinnati


Episode Info

In this unforgettable episode, WKRP station manager Carlson (Gordon Jump) endeavors to prove once and for all that he's truly in charge of things by secretly planning a "brilliant" Thanksgiving promotion for his station. The plan involves flying a helicopter over the Pinedale Shopping Mall--and then releasing twenty live turkeys into the air. Oh, the humanity! Acknowledged by innumerable fans and pundits as one of the greatest TV sitcom episodes of all time, "Turkeys Away" is, incredibly enough, based on a true story. And at the risk of tipping off the ending, we herein quote Mr. Carlson's classic closing line: "As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly." ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
