The Best Thanksgiving Episodes. Ever.

So as part of my new Thanksgiving tradition, last year I scoured the web for the best Thanksgiving episodes. This year I plan on watching them while I cook on Wednesday night and Thanksgiving day. These episodes are either nostalgic or classic.

Please feel free to include any you think I am missing in the comments. Spread the joy!! Share the tradition.

The one with all the Thanksgivings

Friends “The Ones with All the Thanksgivings”

Stuffed to the brim, the group start reminiscing about Thanksgivings past. I love this episode because of the 80’s flashbacks.

season 5 ep 8 netflix

turkeydrop

“Turkeys Away” from WKRP in Cincinnati

This year was first time viewing this episode and I laughed out loud. I have faint memories of WKRP from childhood but actually started working my way through the first season because of this episode.

Season 1 ep 7 Hulu

Big Bang Theory “The Platonic Permutation”

I love BBT. Enough said.

Season 9 ep 9 (Try youtube. It moves around)

MadAboutYou_Giblets_L

Mad About You “Gibblets for Murray”

Trying to make everyone happy at Thanksgiving is impossible. But these two will die trying hosting Thanksgiving for the first time at their home. Cranberries come from a can.

season 3 ep 8 youtube

happyslapsgiving

How I Met your mother  “Slapsgiving”

The show in general is sketchy but the whole concept of Slapsgiving is brilliant.

season 3 ep 9 Hulu

bewitched

Bewitched   “Thanksgiving to Remember”

It’s a classic. Like pumpkin pie.

season 2 ep 4 youtube

amy's speech

Brooklyn 99  Thanksgiving

Boyle Bingo, Amy’s toast and a clogged toilet. Triple threat.

Season 1 ep 10 hulu

Cheers225ThanksgivingOrphans

Cheers “Thanksgiving Orphans”

Another show I remember from being little. This one had me in stitches last year. And also very thankful that my holidays have never been this dramatic.

season 5 ep 9 hulu

Deep Fried Korean Thanksgiving

Gilmore Girls “A Deep Fried Korean Thanksgiving”

Can you believe the Girls are getting back together!!! Dreams do come true!!!

Season 3 ep 9 Netflix

George Thanks for the Memories

Greys Anatomy “Thanks for the Memories”

I will also love the first 3 seasons of Greys. This episode is fall to me.

Season 2 ep 9 Netflix

Last one…

West Wing “Noel”

This is a Christmas episode. But it is amazing. And an important reminder that the Holidays can be hard for others. Josh is struggling with PTSD after the shooting. And he finds healing. It also has one of my favorite recovery dialogues of all time.

Season 2 Episode 10 Netflix
