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!

The store owner that hassles Les in Turkeys Away is also the pilot in The Airplane Episode.

Great episode of a great show. That business owner tells Les to get away from the front of his store and then calls him a creep hahaha

12/13. I wish that METV would include this episode with their holiday programming. Actually, I wish WKRP in Cincinnati was part of the regular schedule. I know that it’s probably shown on another channel, but I don’t get that channel.

Toss up as my favorite WKRP episode along with the one where Johnny Fever is taking part in an on-air drunk driving test by an Ohio State Trooper. The more Johnny drinks, the more sober he becomes. lol.

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.
