It Was a Thing on TV Triple-Header (Episodes #9,10 &11): ’83 Thanksgiving Parade, The Chimp Channel & Pitfall

In the latest trio of episode from It Was A Thing On TV, Mike, Chico and Greg look at a triad of TV obscurities.
First the gang looks at the 1983 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. If you were somebody on NBC back in 1983, odds are you were there.
Then what happens when monkey business is combined with show business? The Chimp Channel. TBS’ first attempt at original comedy. Somebody get Greg a banana.
Finally, Pitfall had it’s ups and downs and we’re not talking about the elevators. Some people might have gotten their earnings while others including Alex Trebek got the shaft.
