“Jerky Turkey” by Tex Avery

It’s Thanksgiving so let’s enjoy Jerky Turkey, a classic 1945 MGM short directed by the one and only Tex Avery. The guns and violence need no explanation; they are as relevant (and American) as ever. But if you’re under the age of 75, you might need a guide to the short’s World War II-specific humor. Anyone remember Franksgiving?
