This Is Thanksgiving, Charlie Brown
29 November 2009 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

In this episode from "This is America, Charlie Brown" the Peanuts gang recreate the famous Mayflower Voyage and trials and perils of the passengers and crew as they make their way to the new world. Having never studied this in school I never knew what Thanksgiving was about other than eating a turkey. This episode details all the main parts of the story and is quite a history lesson.

It's a natural companion piece to A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving as is obvious by it's inclusion on the DVD. But for all of you non-American people who don't fully understand the holiday perhaps you should watch this first.

I don't get why the starving passengers didn't just eat Woodstock though.
