| Nelvanamation....on VHS
This great animated short can be found on the rare compilation titled "Nelvanamation" on VHS. A second collection "Nelvanamation II" was also released and If you're lucky you can find them both on eBay from time to time. I have really fond memories of all the cartoon specials that Nelvana created in the late 70's and early 80's. This Thanksgiving special stands out as my favorite, partially because of the great characters but mostly due the quirky sense of humor. Seeing it recently for the first time since I was a kid was a treat. I was amazed at how I could still remember a lot of the story and gags. Sid Caesar really adds something special to the voice cast. Great stuff.
