For Thanksgiving, it’s two comedy episodes (because there just aren’t any good OTR dramas about Thanksgiving except dramatizations of The First Thanksgiving). First off, meet Eve Arden in Our Miss Brooks, where she plays a refreshingly sardonic high school English teacher who’s not above occasionally offering a zinger at the expense of her students. As Thanksgiving approaches, more and more people invite themselves to her place for dinner – where there’s nary a turkey to be found. Then on The Jack Benny Program, Jack attends that great Los Angeles event, the annual pre-Thanksgiving football game between UCLA and USC. He, Mary, and Dennis drive out to the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, Dennis gets lost, and Jack bumps into Frank Fontaine, doing his character of Mr. Silvoney, the inspiration for Pete Puma from the Looney Tunes cartoons. Check it out here.
