Feeling left out by all the recent changes, Mr. Carlson decides to launch his own Thanksgiving promotion. With the aid of Herb and Les, the Big Guy turns a routine turkey give-away into a comic catastrophe.
Did You Know?
After this show aired, many radio stations across the country started the same Thanksgiving promotion, but dropping certificates redeemable for turkeys at their local supermarket, as opposed to live ones. Richard Sanders

Les states that the helicopter is pulling a banner. Helicopters cannot pull banners behind them due to the tail rotor section of the helicopter. They actually use a tower system where the banner, normally square in shape, hangs directly below the helicopter, 150 feet below, with dead weight attached to the bottom of the banner to keep it from getting caught in an updraft.
