The Turkey Who Came to Dinner is a Rugrats Thanksgiving Special. It premiered on October 21, 1997.
The Pickles and their friends spend the day making dinner and watching parades and football on TV. However, their plans ran amok when no one bought a turkey for dinner, so the ladies went to the store to get one, only to leave with turkey alternatives, like turkey hot dogs, and they ruined that, too. Meanwhile, the guys set up multiple satellite dishes so they can watch an array of football games, but their fun broke down when they all argue on what game they should concentrate on, with Chazz voting for the non-traditional nature documentaries. Also, Angelica and the Rugrats put on a parade, only that the adults were either cooking or watching the games. All of them placed a blame on a live turkey Grandpa won in a canasta game. What Angelica really wants is to see that turkey get cooked for Thanksgiving, something the Rugrats don't want, even though it "caused" so much trouble.
