Thanksgiving TV Specials

Your Uncle Buck is in a festive mood with Thanksgiving around the corner. Unlike Christmas, where there are dozens of great specials and movies and music, UB only has a few Thanksgiving favorites. When it comes to Thanksgiving episodes of UB's favorite TV shows, the three that stick out are Cheers: "Thanksgiving Orphans", A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving, and The Simpsons: "Bart vs. Thanksgiving". These three should be on in the next couple days, but here is a chance for you to relive them with UB...(Help from

Cheers: "Thanksgiving Orphans"

The Cheers gang gathers at Carla's house for a Thanksgiving dinner of frozen turkey and overdone peas, after they all learn they don't have anywhere to go for the holiday.

Diane: Isn't the game over yet? Woody: Not yet. Diane: Their uniforms are different colors. Cliff: They have to change them every time they score a touchdown.

Norm: I think somethings wrong with your oven, Carla. Carla: My oven was fine until you stuffed Birdzilla in it.

Carla: Alright everybody, we'll be sitting boy-girl, Clavin, you can sit anywhere.

Diane (after being hit with mashed potatoes by Sam): Sam Malone....kiss your butt goodbye!

Did you know?

Vera appears for the only time, however her face is covered with pie.

When the gang sits down to eat they talk about who they wish could have been with them to celebrate Thanksgiving dinner. Sam mentions Coach.

A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving:

Sally Brown: Anyway, why should I give thanks on Thanksgiving? What have I got to be thankful for? All it does is make more work for us at school.

Peppermint Patty: You touched my hand, Chuck, you sly dog.

Charlie Brown: We've got ANOTHER holiday to worry about. It seems Thanksgiving Day is upon us. Sally Brown: I haven't even finished eating all of my Halloween candy.

The Simpsons: "Bart vs. Thanksgiving"

Watching the Thanksgiving Day Parade (hosted by Bill and Marty):

Bill: Uh oh, here comes our friend, Bullwinkle J. Moose.

Homer: Heh heh heh, Bullwinkle's antler sprung a leak.

Bill: Uh oh, looks like ol' Bullwinkle's kinda gotten a taste of his own medicine. Ha ha. Marty: He certainly does, Bill. Bill: Ha ha. Wait, what did... Did what I say make sense? Marty: Well, no, not really Bill. Bill: Boy, now I know how the pilgrims felt. Marty: What are you talking about, Bill?

Cranberry A la Bart...

After Bart destroys Lisa's center piece: Homer: All right Bart, that's it! Go to your room! Now! Bart: Okay, I'll take some white meat and stuffing to go, and send up the pumpkin pie in about 20 minutes.

Homer: And Lord, we are especially thankful for nuclear power, the cleanest, safest energy source there is. Except for solar, which is just a pipe dream. Anyway, we'd like to thank you for the occasional moments of peace and love our family has experienced. Well, not today, but... You saw what happened! Oh, Lord, be honest! Are we the most pathetic family in the universe or what!

Lisa: The only reason to apologize is if you look deep down inside yourself, and you find a spot, something you wish wasn't there because you feel bad you hurt your sister's feeling.'' Bart: This is so stupid. I'm not going to find anything. Just because I wrecked something she worked really hard on, and I made her cr---... Uh oh. ... I'm sorry, Lisa.''

Homer: Oh Lord, on this blessed day, we thank Thee for giving our family one more crack at togetherness. All: Amen.
