Well.....they did vote for Obama, didn’t they?
All I can say about the show is “Jan Smithers”....mmmmmm, mmmm, mmmmmm.
Wild turkeys wonder onto my property all the time. When my dog chases them they DO fly away when he gets close. They are just a little more adept at flying than chickens. And some of my chickens can fly a fair distance.
Oh, the humanity!
I seem to remember about that time that WKRP or another show did a parody. Instead of dropping live turkeys, they dropped frozen turkeys. Of course, the scene was on the sidewalk as people were trying to get out of the way of falling frozen butterballs crashing into vehicles, etc.
Turkeys can fly. Just look at how Barack and Moochelle get around the country.
I remember the show like yesterday. This episode, and the Chuckles the Clown episode, were breathtakingly funny.
BTW, here’s a better clip of the WKRP turkey episode:
Turkeys can fly. They roost in trees. How do ya think they get up there, climb? LOL
This episode was played 4 times in a row yesterday on ... er, either ME-TV or Antenna-TV. I had to watch it twice, even though I’ve got it on recorded media anyway. It’s a great show.
And yes... Jan Smithers was so beautiful. I’ve had a tremendous crush on her ever since 1974’s “Where the Lilies Bloom.” A good movie about Appalachian kids living on their own after their father dies, if you ever get the chance. (They keep the father’s death a secret so as to not break up the sibling family.)
And the older I get the more I appreciate Loni Anderson in that role. She was hot, even with the horrible big hair.
“Oh my God, they’re turkeys!”
Watch a live turkey dropped from a plane and the crazy woman who ‘caught’ it...
Great writing. Wonderful cast.
Didn’t radio host Doug macintyre write that line?
WKRP was one of my favorites, you got the sense that the writers and actors were at their ‘A’ game and it just rocked along. Unlike M*A*S*H where they made Frank Burns both the fall-guy and conservative, you never got the idea that the designated foils, Arthur Carlson or Herb Tarlek, were political and the humor was gentle where it wasn’t slapstick.
I asked Lil Miss this morning where bf was and she said he went to Cincinnati for Thanksgiving. I couldn’t resist asking if he was going to the great turkey drop. As God is my witness, I thought my joke would fly... it flew like a turkey.
