a turkey might not have invented TV, but certainly invented TV programming!
17 December 2004 | by (Upstate New York) – See all my reviews

"That's how a turkey created TV ... That's right! "That's right, a turkey created TV "It sounds stupid but, Oh, take one look and you'll know that a turkey created TV!"

Poor Philo T. Farnsworth, could he have envisioned this?

My younger brother and I used to watch this pretty wacky show. I remember it had comedy clips: like Robin Williams singing Elmer Fudd singing Bruce Springsteen or Dana Carvey singing the "Choppin' Broccoli" song. It also had some short foreign language slapstick comedy sketches. There were also strange music videos like Commander Cody's "Two Cheeseburgers Side Order of Fries" Barnes and Barnes' "Fish Heads" (also staples of Dr. Demento's occasional MTV specials) and Gerard Blanchard's "Rock Amadour."
