Thanksgiving may be over, but you can still join The Beverly Hillbillies for Turkey Day (1963) and (the controversial) Calvin and the Colonel for Thanksgiving Dinner (1961). Both episodes are available on Archive.org, along with another 50 or so episodes of the 274 Beverly Hillbillies episodes, and three more episodes from the 26 episodes of Calvin and the Colonel. Bonus bits: Jerky Turkey [YT] (1945, directed by Tex Avery), and Tom Turkey and His Harmonica Humdingers (1940).

There were at least two more cartoon shorts titled "Jerky Turkey" - the second in 1968 (YT clip) and the third was a 1993 Animaniacs short.

Wait... The Beverly Hillbillies is in the public domain?

Crap. I feel old.

From wikipedia: Many episodes of the first two seasons of the series are in the public domain because CBS, having bought the rights to the series shortly after its cancellation, neglected to renew their copyrights.... In many video prints of the public domain episodes, the original and much-loved theme music has been replaced by generic music due to copyright issues.

Now you don't need to feel so old, it's just an issue of legalese.
