Jerky Turkey

It is that time of year again!  This Thanksgiving, we are again inviting the great Tex Avery to tell the classic story of a simple Pilgrim looking for that first Thanksgiving Day meal, and throw in a pack of World War II era jokes to boot.  From the Internet Archive, the 1945 animated short, Jerkey Turkey.
