TV or not TV

Back in the days (the 80's, in this case) when TV stations could afford to throw holiday parties for their staff, the Engineering Department of Knoxville's WATE-TV6 would assemble an out take/blooper/comedy reel for the party each year. This one comes from 1989, and is one of the weaker ones that I possess (but it's currently the only one that I can locate). The bloopers are nice, but the "production pieces" are mostly of the unfunny variety (what was the point of the Caddyshack rip off? To get sales staff in the video?).

As far as the "celebrity" station IDs - well, you can see why ABC was in last place. Who knew Columbo was back in production in '89?
