    Gosh father squirrel i am rather curious as to where exactly this alliance
    progressed. Oh yeah… we dominated and massacred an innocent people who

    Some people wanna take these posts too seriously. They were made to make
    people watching feel good. A little happy family/friend time. It’s not
    like they were made to give 100% accuracy to history in the storyline. I
    think that ship sailed (LOL – pun intended) when squirrels began talking.
    They make you feel good. So chill out and save all those PC comments for
    The History Channel et al. Thanks for this post. Brings back such great
    memories. Have a very Happy Thanksgiving, people and all critters, large
    and small. Real or animated. Love Thanksgiving day – It means Christmas
    is just around the corner. Guess what, I love those specials too.
    Especially the cartoonish ones . . .

    The best Thanksgiving tv special ever. That Thanksgiving Day song is so
    awesome. I always loved it as a kid and still do. Happy Thanksgiving!!

    This is a classic! it was a co-production of Hanna-Barbera and the now
    defunct
    Avco Embassy Television,and was released in Fall 1972. this was what REAL
    Family viewing and values were like back then,and Hanna-Barbera sure did
    their best to live-up to that image,as compared to the unsightly rubbish
    today!

    I can’t prove it yet but there is a voice during the main song and
    especially when he says “don’t tell me your bellys achin'” and “i’m
    starvin'” that sounds so much like Thurl Ravenscroft; the voice behind
    “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch” and Tony the Tiger. Any comments?
