It’s Thanksgiving, and of course that means lots of food, family, and television! So what better way to celebrate than a look back at some of the TV specials – and special episodes – of the past?
I suppose we might as well start with the blockhead himself:

From 1968, here’s The Mouse on the Mayflower:
Somebody’s got to prepare the turkey. Why not the Swedish Chef?
Here’s a 1986 TV movie called The Thanksgiving Promise

Here’s a classic cartoon called Jerky Turkey:
Uh, oh! It’s The Thanksgiving That Almost Wasn’t
And finally, of course, no Thanksgiving Television round-up would be complete without this clip:
Happy Thanksgiving folks, from the entire DurnMoose family to you!
