Underdog, "Simon Says...No Thanksgiving"

This is the last non-holiday season weekend of the year. Jingle bells and mistletoe are almost here! But before we stuff our stocking, we stuff our faces at the Thanksgiving table, most likely after taking in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade on TV. That's where today's subject comes in--sort of.

In 1965, the Underdog balloon made it's debut in the parade, and to celebrate it, this special Thanksgiving-themed episode aired on NBC TV immediately after the parade. Simon Bar Sinister has yet another overly complicated plan to take over the city, including ruining Thanksgiving! Leave it to Underdog to save the day. Enjoy! And please excuse the racism of the Goofy Gophers.

Unfortunately, parts 3 and 4 have the embed feature disabled, so please see the direct link for the rest of the episode:

Wow! Go Go Gophers! I loved that show as a kid, but it's a bit cringeworthy to watch today.
