It’s Time for Thanksgiving cartoons!

Most of us don’t associate Thanksgiving as a time for cartoons like we do for Christmas and Halloween. But when I was a kid way back in the 70s, anytime a cartoon special was offered, I was right in front of the 26 inch Zenith color console waiting to devour it. Now I’m sure a lot of you are familiar with “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” and “A Garfield Thanksgiving”, but some other ones I remember fondly were Daffy Duck’s Thanks for Giving Special in which Daffy decides everyone should be thanking him for all the entertainment he provides and 1972’s “The Thanksgiving that almost wasn’t”. A Hanna Barbera cartoon about the first Thanksgiving as told by a father squirrel to his son. I really wanted to share Daffy’s Thanks for Giving Special but could not find any online video for it. So, thanks to Youtube user comicbookking we can watch The Thanksgiving that almost wasn’t.

Don’t get me wrong, I prefer watching the Charlie Brown and Garfield Thanksgiving cartoons but this one brings back some great memories of waking up early on Thanksgiving morning to watch the parades and later this cartoon.

I love retro toys, television, movies and just about anything from the 70s and 80s.I frequent flea markets, thrift shops, garage sales and auctions hoping to nab my next pop culture trophy.
