Posted: Updated:
Our favorite Thanksgiving-themed TV episodes ever | YouTube

Thanksgiving is a time for reflecting on life, the people (and TV shows) you love, the things you're grateful for ... and when that's done and the leftovers are put away, it's also great inspiration for classic holiday TV show episodes.

From classics like "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving," more comedic takes like "How I Met Your Mother's" Slapsgiving tradition and the annual Turkey Day struggles on "Friends," and a dramatic turn with Betty's lone Weight Watchers-approved brussels sprout on "Mad Men," we've rounded up a gallery of our all-time favorite Thanksgiving-themed TV episodes.

Click through the gallery to relive the moments (and hopefully make your own holiday stresses melt away), then tell us: What other Thanksgiving TV episodes do you love?

Gobble, gobble!
