Hey there Pilgrims it's the big turkey day!
Although Charlie Brown made an attempt to create another holiday classic (sorry Charlie, you'll always have Halloween and Christmas), the best Thanksgiving themed cartoon is still the Tex Avery MGM cartoon Jerky Turkey from 1945. If you've never seen it prepare to laugh at the some of the best cartoon humor ever, and scratch your head to the ever increasingly obscure WWII references.
To make this post a little more special I drew my very own "Jerky Turkey"and Pilgrim above. That way when the Jerky Turkey cartoon is inevitably pulled from YouTube, future visitors reading this post will still have something to look at.
