    The best Thanksgiving show ever. It’s still fresh all these years later.
    Besides, Andy looks great in his tight jeans.

    Thanks for the memory. I think Less Nessman could hold his own on the Sunday talk shows these days. The episode brings back a lot of memories of my VERY few years at WJOY in Burlington, VT. The guy that owned the station was crazier than Carlson.

    Even down here in New Zealand that is a famous show and I remember seeing that episode for the first time and LMAO so much that my Mum asked me if I was OK.


  5. That turkey scene was a classic up there with “Chuckles Bites the Dust.”

    Moeman’s right. Loni Anderson got all the attention, but Bailey (Jan Smithers) is a handsome woman.

    Another holiday classic featuring a helicopter was the first “Married…. With Children” Christmas show. That one had Santa in the role of the turkeys and it’s one of the few episodes where things turned out well for the Bundy clan.

    Best. Thanksgiving. Episode. Ever.

    Actually, turkeys can fly. Well wild turkeys can glide pretty far and launch themselves through the air. Domestic turkeys, maybe not.
