Happy Thanksgiving! Here’s The Best Thanksgiving Sitcom Episode Ever

As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly.

WKRP Thanksgiving

I’ve posted this before, but there’s no reason not to share it again, especially since I’m not sure that you’ll be able to catch it on television as has been the case in recent years.

    This show also has the potential for its own Ginger-Mary Ann debate. And once again, I find myself leaning toward Mary Ann.

    My absolute all time favorite Thanksgiving episode of any TV show, followed closely by the Friends Thanksgiving episode where Rachel makes the beef trifle. Both of them make me laugh until I cry.
