How well do you remember ''Turkeys Away,'' the greatest Thanksgiving episode of all time?

Do you have the stuffing to pass this WKRP in Cincinnati quiz?

Thanksgiving is a time to gather with family, consume piles of home cooking… and laugh along with the most inept radio promotion in television history.

WKRP in Cincinnati had been on the air a mere month when it aired "Turkeys Away," just its seventh episode. The eclectic cast of character was already in top form, and this hilarious piece of sitcom writing immediately entered the hall of fame. It's the funniest Thanksgiving episode, the most beloved WKRP in Cincinnati episode, a highlight of 1970s television overall, and just one of the flat-out best sitcom episodes of all time.

So, how well do you remember it? 

See if you've got the stuffing to pass this turkey test!

This has been by far the classic episode in our family! My husband & I both have tees that celebrate Les’s broadcast & the unforgettable excuse Mr. Carlson has for the blunder!

8 out of 13. "Turkeys Away" is hilarious, but is my 2nd favorite WKRP episode. My favorite is "The Airplane Show." Even more hilarious!

Just got back home a few days ago. Will be spending Thanksgiving with the family and then heading back to Alaska shortly there after. But it's great to be home for now and thanks for the welcome.

11/13. Could be worse. I could have bombed.
"For those of you just tuning in, the Pinedale Shopping Center has just been bombed with live turkeys. Film at eleven."

I do recall that Mr. Carlson became a Pink Floyd fan in this episode (you can hear the song “Sheep” from the 1977 album Animals).

The all time best episode in television!!!! "As God As My Witness I thought turkeys could fly." One of the best lines ever!
The Gomer Pyle USMC episode where Pvt. GOMER PYLE AND SGT.
CARTER EAT WELSH RAREBIT And
Then Pyle starts yelling at Carter and Carter talks like Pyle is a funny
episode. Also on Happy Days when
Richie was accused of being the
Kissing Bandit that was also funny.
