After years of fruitless warning of his farmyard brethren of the coming Thanksgiving doom, Reggie the Turkey finds himself spared as the annual Pardoned Turkey. However, Reggie's easy life is disrupted by Jake, a fanatic turkey who drags him along with the insane idea of going back in time to make sure turkeys are not part of the first Thanksgiving. Through foolhardiness and luck, the pair manage to take an experimental time machine to do just that. Now in 1621 at the Plymouth colony, Reggie and Jake find themselves in the middle of a turkey clan's struggle for survival. In doing so, their preconceptions of the world and themselves are challenged forever in a conflict from which the world will never be the same.Written by

Ren and Stimpy creator and animator John Kricfalusi was brought on early in the production as a conceptual artist. He submitted numerous character designs and sequences, none of which were used in the film, but are available for viewing on his blog. See more »
The rifles used in the movie by the Pilgrims are percussion cap rifles which were not produced until after 1807. See more »
Well, I guess this is good-bye.
No, Reggie. Good-byes are just hellos, carried across the wind until our paths... intersect once again.

Some folks who are either not getting this or are taking it way too seriously.
"We have a Turkey situation"
"How should we address it?"
"With cranberry sauce." (HA, HA, HA,HA)
This was just a fun, silly movie -- perfect for a family outing. It has no pretensions to be anything more than just a goofy, romp through "history". No, it doesn't contain any riotously funny scenes. No, it doesn't contain any hidden agenda. No it doesn't contain a subtext of humor aimed at the parents/adults in the audience. And no, it is not a thinly veiled attempt by Hollywood to promote a "Vegan" agenda. (Seriously?!?)
It's not great art. It doesn't even really try to manipulate the heart strings.
It reminded me a lot of "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure" and even referenced it at one point.
It's just exactly that kind of a (again) fun, silly little movie.
Nothing more, nothing less.
Just take the kids and enjoy it.
