From TibbyH :

A cozy special that's light on content, but plentiful in charm. Not a lot really happens in this cartoon, but that's not out of the ordinary for Peanuts. The Thanksgiving special is a nice comfortable cartoon to put on after a hectic day of dinner preparation or just any day in November.
