Tex Avery, "Jerky Turkey"

The next serving in this year's Thanksgiving feast is the MGM cartoon "Jerky Turkey," directed by animation legend Tex Avery. It's the typical Pilgrim versus turkey routine, which is a common theme found in cartoons. Most of my Thanksgiving posts this year will demomstrate this. This one features plenty of self-aware corny jokes, a few of which are World War II related, as this is when this cartoon was made. This was featured on the Pop Culture Holiday Blog last year.

There just aren't a whole lot of Thanksgiving cartoons to choose from is there? I don't think I've seen this one, no shortage of gags is there? I like the one with Daffy Duck, Porky, and the turkey :)
