Storyline

To add flavor to her rock soup, the Fat Broad commands Wiley, Peter, Thor, etc. to catch a turkey. The problem is that no one knows what a turkey is, except for the turkey himself. In spite of this, the chase is on. Mostly a series of running gags, this animated special did a superb job of capturing the humor of Johnny Hart's B.C. comic strip. Written by R. Fujioka

"B.C.: The First Thanksgiving" was a funny animated special I just watched on YouTube
27 November 2008 | by tavmSee all my reviews

While writing in "Thanksgiving Cartoons" in the search blank in YouTube, I discovered this B.C. animated special was listed. What a great surprise to find this cartoon after partially knowing about it for years! Directed by Warner animation veteran (and Chuck Jones protégé) Abe Levitow, "B.C.: The First Thanksgiving" does Johnny Hart's classic comic strip a great service to its creator which is not surprising since Hart co-wrote the script. Hilarious stuff like B.C.'s discovering fire (not to mention his Jack Benny-like voice and characterization) and the other cavemen chasing the turkey as the turkey keeps playing tricks on them are among the highlights of many in this inventive and satirical animated special. I also loved the jazz-rock with a little bit of country-flavored score. There was also another character who talked liked Bogart. Among the voices were Daws Butler, Don Messick, and singer Joanie Sommers as both the Cute Chick and the Fat Broad. I highly recommend this for anyone searching on YouTube.
