Thanksgiving is a time to be thankful, and for the past year, we’ve all been thankful for one thing, our television and streaming.

Our television keeps us entertained even when cooped up at home, entertains guests, helps with bonding and most of all: It’s there for you when you binge entire Netflix shows in one day. So why not spend Thanksgiving with not only family and friends but also classic holiday movies or TV shows that will prepare you for that big turkey dinner? 

“But where do I find them?” CGM has you covered for the titles and where you can watch them. So kick back, relax and chow down on some turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and delicious pumpkin pie.

This 2013 comedy film is 1 hour and 31 minutes long and follows two turkeys from very different backgrounds who go back in time to save their ancestors from the first Thanksgiving back in 1621. Although it’s not as classic as the other movies on the list, it takes place long before them.

Every once in a while, our favourite cartoon cat wakes up (for about 23 minutes on this occasion) to eat lasagna and share a memory with us, sometimes both at the same time. Garfield sees a mark on the calendar saying he must go to the vet today. While taking it off, he realizes that tomorrow is Thanksgiving and demands Jon buy food for the occasion.

The Berenstain Bears Meet Bigpaw
