WKRP Turkey Drop

The WKRP episode called "Turkeys Away" first aired in 1978 and has become a Thanksgiving classic. Vulture tells us why.

In its own twisted way, “Turkeys Away” is about the same thing as just about every Thanksgiving episode: people trying to do something perfect for the holiday, failing wildly at that endeavor, then moving on with their chins up after it’s all over. It may not cover the usual Thanksgiving traditions like making dinner or navigating family dynamics, but this episode of WKRP still ends the way that a lot of Thanksgivings dinner do: with a couple of dead birds, a huge mess to clean up, and everyone in the immediate vicinity feeling irritated with each other.
