In the 1989 film UHF, George Newman ("Weird Al" Yankovic) inherits a small UHF station -- U62 -- outside of Tulsa, Oklahoma. In an early effort before the station is a success, his character of "Uncle Nutsy" accidentally gives Yappy's Dog Treats to his friend Bob who is dressed up like a clown. Other hit shows on the network are Wheel of Fish and Raul's Wild Kingdom, in which a man fruitlessly teaches poodles how to fly. The movie's theme song proclaims "We've got it all on UHF."
