You're looking for stty, specifically "stty sane" [1].

Personally, though, I'd be firing soemthing like this off on it's own
virtual console using openvt, which should remove any need for fiddling
with the tty settings.

[1] For values of specifically which ignore the numerous other ways of
accomplishing the same effect with stty.
