Plot

It's Thanksgiving, and Leonard's grandmother Grandma Rose (who is also Mary Lou's mother) is visiting for the holidays. Since she is allergic to the pets, they have to stay in the laundry room. After she arrives, she brings in a live turkey from her friend's garage sale for dinner, as the pets try to find a way to prevent this from happening.

In the meantime, Spot becomes disdained with Leonard because he promised to check up on them every few minutes or so. This never happens though because Leonard's grandmother brought over an old retro video gaming system, to which Leonard slowly becomes addicted to.

Notes

Screen Shot 2013-02-11 at 6.24.49 PM
  • In this episode it's revealed that Mary Lou's full name is Mary Lou Moira Angela Darling Helperman, a reference to the classic Disney film, Peter Pan. This would be referenced again in the movie.
  • Betty White of The Golden Girls guest stars as Leonard's grandmother, Grandma Rose; coincidentally, her character on The Golden Girls was also named Rose.
  • This episode has a similar name of the Rugrats episode, "The Turkey Who Came to Dinner". David Maples, a writer for Teacher's Pet, wrote for Rugrats during that time period.
  • The video game sounds and looks like the classic NES game "Super Mario Bros" and many other Atari games.
  • This episode aired in late March due to Toon Disney airing the remaining 18 burn-off episodes straight in a row since ABC was developing ABC Kids at the time. The episode "The Blight Before Christmas" fell under the same trap as it aired in late April. Had this not occurred, it probably would have aired in November instead.

Availability

  • An English VHSrip/Widescreen version, and Russian Dub exists online.
