Product summary

Timmy is sad that there is no turkey at his Thanksgiving this year. So he wishes for the best Thanksgiving dinner ever. But there's more to Thanksgiving than just a good meal!


After having just watched the Thanksgiving parade, Timmy gushes to Cosmo and Wanda about how he loves Thanksgiving and the dinner it presents. Wanda then goes to pack for the trip she and Cosmo are taking to Mama Cosma's for dinner. Timmy heads down to dinner, but to his dismay, he finds that his mom has opted to make a vegetarian dinner this year, including turkey-flavored tofu (or "tofurkey"). Upset, Timmy stomps back to his room. He decides to wish for the best Thanksgiving dinner ever, but Cosmo continually goofs up his request, by filling the room first with junk food, then beef jerky, and lots of live turkeys. After Wanda returns and sends the turkeys away, Timmy wishes to go some other place where there's a perfect Thanksgiving dinner.

After several failed tries, they drop him off in a dining room with the perfect Thanksgiving dinner he referred to. But after Cosmo and Wanda head off to Mama Cosma's, Timmy finds out they've left him at Vicky's house. To his surprise, though, he finds out that Vicky (along with Doidle) is alone for Thanksgiving because her parents and Tootie went out to get cranberry sauce, and their car broke down. Timmy feels sorry for her, so he calls up his parents and asks them to come pick up him and Vicky, along with her folks. When they get back to Timmy's house, the dinner has gotten cold. The tofurkey bounces off the table when Mr. Turner attempts to carve it, much to the amusement of Vicky's family, while Tootie embraces Timmy and declares that she's thankful to be sitting next to him. Later that night, Timmy tells Cosmo and Wanda that he's learned that being together for Thanksgiving is more important than the dinner - "even if it means tofurkey sandwiches for lunch all next week!"
