It's the time of year for giving thanks -- and we're thankful for so many things, like new must-see TV and old holiday classics.

But while the annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade is a fine tradition -- helping us remember the joy of unity and community (and consumerism) -- watching the whole thing can sometimes feel like a 12-course feast without an elasticated waistband.

So if you missed the morning's festivities or just couldn't be bothered to sit through three hours of balloons and singalongs, you're in luck -- we've assembled all of the best pop culture floats and celebrity appearances into one handy slideshow, which should leave you plenty of room for football, leftovers or the "Friends" marathon on TBS this Thanksgiving night.

Isn't that something we can all be thankful for?
