Can you name the TV shows that featured these Thanksgiving Pilgrims?

Can you Plymouth rock this quiz?

Thanksgiving is just not Thanksgiving without a few certain things — turkey, the Macy's parade, the Detroit Lions on TV, pie, cornucopias. Of course, we should remember how it all started.

That's why TV shows often feature characters dressed as Pilgrims in their Thanksgiving episodes. We've gathered a gaggle of Pilgrims seen on television from the 1960s through the 1990s.

See if you can match them to the correct title! Good luck!

  1. She was the only one dressed up for the occasion on this sitcom.

  3. Who is chomping the cob?
  4. Recognize these Pilgrims?
  5. Which horse is getting dressed for the holiday?

You got 12 out of 12 - How much Pilgrim's progress did you make? Took an educated guess on the last one. Though it wasn't for Thanksgiving specifically, I was hoping to see Floyd the Barber when he dressed as a Pilgrim to sing All Hail to Thee Miss Mayberry.

11/12. I forgot the old rule, "If ALF is one of the selections on a MeTV quiz, it's the answer."

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you METV quiz-takers.

Unfortunately, the answers really don't match the questions properly.

11/12. Missed the last one. Never watched any of those shows. And I wouldn't watch Carol Burnett if you paid me.

I just saw the Thanksgiving "Happy Days" episode last night, and it was hilarious! You can't beat those Happy Day's writers. As well as the delivery of really great comic/actors makes it work! So glad they showed it as part of MeTV's Holiday Package!
I'm happy about it too!! Last year they put 2 Christmas episodes on back to back..."Christmas Time" & "Guess Who's Coming to Christmas". Maybe they will be able to put a couple of episodes on this year too! 🤞
