Here’s what we’re watching in-between the hallowed gobbling of more stuffing, please. Funny Thanksgiving videos celebrating and mocking the holiday are served up on a platter—and a computer.
Saturday Night Live: A Thanksgiving Miracle
If you’ve ever suffered through a holiday dinner with a racist family member (or two), you will definitely relate to this hilarious SNL sketch! Cast members Beck Bennett, Jay Pharoah, Cecily Strong, Aidy Bryant, Kate McKinnon and Vanessa Bayer, along with celebrity host Matthew McConaughey, come together in this funny sketch that also managed to incorporate one of the best memes of 2015: Adele’s hit song, Hello.
The Friends Thanksgiving Episode From 1992
In this classic clip from one of the 1990’s most popular sitcoms, Joey and Monica try on a new hat. OK, not exactly.
Adam Sandler’s “Thanksgiving Song” On Saturday Night Live
Before there was the Hanukkah Song, there was the Thanksgiving Song! Sample lyrics:
Turkey for me
Turkey for you
Let’s eat the turkey
In my big brown shoe
Love to eat the turkey
At the table
I once saw a movie
With Betty Grable
Eat that turkey
All night long
Fifty million Elvis fans
Can’t be wrong
Turkey lurkey doo and
Turkey lurkey dap
I eat that turkey
Then I take a nap
The Holderness Family’s “All About That Baste”
Remember the cutesy YouTube family who brought us such instant viral classics as “Christmas Jammies?” Of course you don’t.
Just kidding! The Holderness family has become a fixture in the parody video space, and their Thanksgiving themed spoof of Meghan Trainor’s hit song All About That Bass did not disappoint.
A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving
The Peanuts gang celebrates around the ol’ ping-pong table with a big feast, as seen in this clip from the holiday cartoon classic. Chef Snoopy—mmmm, that means good eating!—dishes out dinner and carves the turkey. Is it just me or is the sight of Woodstock chomping down turkey and yanking the wishbone very disturbing?
Debbie Downer’s Thanksgiving on Saturday Night Live
Rachel Dratch’s deadpan Debbie Downer character has never been funnier than she is in this sketch! And that’s saying something because this is one of the greatest SNL characters in recent memory.
