Thanksgiving is a time for family and friends to gather, even if they are fictional characters on a television show.

We gathered some of the most memorable Thanksgiving episodes in TV history. Well, the titles and a brief description. See if you can match them to the correct series!

  1. "The Un-Underground Movie": Greg enlists his family to create a documentary about the First Thanksgiving.

  3. "An Ill Wind": Aunt Effie is trapped with the family during a tornado.

14/15. Missed #14, but I didn't watch two of those choices and knew very little about the third.

14 out of 15. Who the hell remembers AfterMASH!? MeTV is MASH crazy and I don't much care for it.

* I liked After-MASH. Sad that CBS didn't give it a fair chance to catch on!

I remembered that it existed, but I never watched it. I deduced the correct answer by the year (1953 was after the Korean War), and the name Potter (Col. Potter).

Thankfully all my relatives are dead and most of my wives. I can just sit home with her and my son and enjoy watching some football and eating food that I actually like.

Fried chicken, mashed potatoes, green beans, and sweet potato pie

Every Thanksgiving I had to endure in 10 years of Thanksgivings at my ex-mother in law's home can be spot-on explained by Norm Peterson:

"[W]e gotta go to Vera's mother's. Such a drag. No beer, no TV, heat turned up to 80."

15/15, early Christmas present with all the names being used in the questions.
May have made it easy for many of us, but felt so good while you were taking the quiz and seeing "correct" so many times.
Thanks Metv for the happy moment, I needed it at this time.
