The opening skit features Red Skelton and Lucy Knoch as Pilgrims confined to the stocks with Red plagued by a misbehaving youngster. The main sketch, titled "Weepy Talks Turkey", presents Red as football coach Weepy Numbskull, lecturing his family on the proper methods of eating the Thanksgiving feast. In the second skit, called "Thanksgiving Turkey", Clem Kaddidlehopper (as Pilgrim John Alden) tells the story of Miles Standish and Priscilla Mullins, morphing into a Tide detergent ad. In the closing, Red talks seriously about the Pilgrims, then warns of threats to our freedoms. See more
