I know most of you guys are too young, but, "As God as my witness, I thought turkeys could fly!" WKRP! There's also the Birdzilla episode of Cheers.

The West Wing's Donna and CJ minding the Turkey's in Shibboleth is too funny not to watch. Not to mention all the Friends eps.

My favorite "Friends" Thanksgiving episode is the one where Chandler loses his toe. The sight of him and Ross in their 80's "Flock of Seagulls" and "Miami Vice" looks is priceless!

We always watch the Pangs episode from Season 4 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer on Thanksgiving. Buffy's dinner, Willow's conflict over the celebration, Spike's take on it. It's a Yam Sham!
