The Best Thanksgiving TV Specials

One of the best parts of the holidays is all the holiday specials that TV shows do. While some people may get tired of all the holiday themed episodes, I live for them. They are always some of my favorite episodes of the show, no matter how corny or dorky they are. If you, like me, get a kick out of them but don't know how to find them, here is my list of the all-time best shows with Thanksgiving specials.
