As we're awaiting SU-Notre Dame, I figured I'd find out what's on your must see list each Thanksgiving

Movies
Planes, Trains and Automobiles - the pinnacle of Thanksgiving movies as far as I'm concerned

TV shows
WKRP in Cincinnati - Turkeys Away
The Bob Newhart Show - Over the River and Through the Woods
All the Friends Thanksgiving episodes
Charlie Brown Thanksgiving (for the kids or adults who are still kids)
Garfield Thanksgiving (for the kids or adults who are still kids)

Great calls on Planes, Trains & Automobiles, and the WKRP and Newhart episodes. That's all I need.

What other Thanksgiving movies are there?

Not a knock on Ps, Ts and As, just having a hard time thinking of other Thanksgiving movies.

Much of Miracle on 34th Street takes place on Thanksgiving Day. That's really the best overall holiday movie for my money. Skip the remakes and go straight to the B&W original.

Love the original. I always consider that a Christmas but you're right, it's also Thanksgiving. Some people say the Dylan McDermott version is good but I can't get into it like the original.

“Thanksgiving” was a fake trailer for a horror movie during the “intermission” of Grindhouse. Does that count?
