Celebrating Thanksgiving with Television
It may be a ridiculous holiday of excess, but it's the subject of some memorable television. Here are my favorites:
Mad About You - "Giblets for Murray"
I remember my parents trying to tell me about this episode and laughing so hard they could barely get through the description. My favorite part is when she throws the turkey out the window.
Friends - "The One Where Ross Got High"
Friends had terrific Thanksgiving episodes. My favorite was the one where Rachel made the english trifle out of beef, leading to one of my favorite moments:
And my favorite blooper:
A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving
And of course, the best piece of Thanksgiving television ever! Peanuts hijinks set to sweet, sweet jazz. Favorite scene - when Peppermint Patty lets Charlie Brown have it for screwing up Thanksgiving dinner. That's love.
