A favorite Thanksgiving TV special
10 October 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is one of my favorite Thanksgiving TV specials, and also one of my favorite TV specials from animation team Hanna/Barbera. At first I had never seen it before, but I did and I love it. And the next time it came on TV, I taped it, and thanks goodness because after that I didn't show anymore. Well anyway, this special is about a father squirrel (voiced by Hanna/Barbera regular Vic Perrin) telling his son (voiced by the wonderful June Foray) about their ancestor Jeremy Squirrel (voiced by Hal Smith who voiced Owl in Disney's "Winnie the Pooh" featurettes) who made friends with a Pilgrim boy Johnny Cooke and Little Bear the son of Indian chief Massasoit. Jeremy helps the boys, who got lost in the woods on the eve of the first Thanksgiving, find their way back to the settlement before the Thanksgiving feast could begin.

So anyway, this special is another favorite holiday TV special, and I love Jeremy Squirrel.
