Snob Riffs! "Jerky Turkey"
This year for Thanksgiving, we take a look at a 1945 Tex Avery cartoon, centered around turkeys, pilgrims, Indians, and the black market?

How's the chemo going, Brad?

Bad, must be why I still have facial hair =)

LOL.... You poor baldy thing. Every time I see you, I can't help but think 'you must have the coldest widdle ears'. :P

at least you're still funny. there are plenty of funny comedians and great actors who are bald. hell, I think you can be a spokesman on a commercial and still look awesome. maybe you can be the new spokesman for dos equis.

You must be freezing.

Cartoons back then got everything wrong, from what pilgrims wore to what they eat. Hell, they'd teach you to feed your pets stuff that would kill them, just like Food Fight.

I really need to check my grammar before I post >:P
11/26/2014 11:37:57 pm
all is forgiven. sometimes I need to check what I'm typing before I post it. like the obvious typo I had bellow. but then again, I think everyone gets the message one way or another. in either case, it's cool to see people remembering this cartoon as a child. the last time I've seen this was probably on a VHS tape about Easter and was released by Family Home Entertainment or aka FHE. the only reason I remember that was because it's the same company that released the VHS tapes of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

racist or not, these cartoon shorts,in the 30's to the 60's, are unapologetic about what they're saying. they're by far the best things ever animated.

Oh God! I remember watching this as a kid, many times in fact. Which probably explains why I'm not as fond as Looney Tunes as most people. This was actually funny to me, as opposed to the same annoying characters doing their schtick over & over.

"The Matrix is telling my brain this is turkey jerky!"

Another funny riff Brad! It's a good thing because I'm watching #MST3KTurkeyDay all day today! Who's with me?

another job well done. strange as it is, I think I've seen this cartoon before on a VHS tape. it's been far too long to remember what specific VHS tape it was on, but I still recognized the animated short when I started watching this review which by the way has extremely funny. Happy Thanksgiving Brad & the rest of Team Snob, and thanks for bringing me back to an obscure animated short that I vaguely remember from my youth.

Oh man, this takes me back to when I was really little and would watch Tex Avery and Tom and Jerry cartoons (unedited with the Mammy Two-Shoes character intact) on a local TV station. I guess that's where my love for cartoons started out from.

I really do love your riffs, Brad, though I always wish others would join in. I can't explain it, but riffing is better with more than one participant, & all of "Team Snob" have comedic talents in some way so why not?
11/27/2014 03:00:43 am
I loved this cartoon and I loved your riff as well. I really don't know why old cartoons aren't riffed more often considering some of them have such juicy bits of controversy that beg for a comedic beating. Either way, this was an awesome Thanksgiving riff. Almost made forget I have work in four hours....almost.

im watching old midnight screenings and i see the jerrid guy,and i know you had a bad fallout with him but,have you guyus moved on? are you friend again?
11/27/2014 07:55:31 am
Don't have the answer to the Jerrid stuff, but no, Brad doesn't actually have cancer.
11/28/2014 01:55:29 am
Not gonna happen =)
11/27/2014 06:34:23 am
You know what? I'm happy.
11/27/2014 08:01:21 am
Brad, you finally decided your gonna break bad?

This comment has nothing to do with the video (although it was awesome) but more to ask Brad if he's seen Predestination. Brad, you have to watch this movie, it is exactly your kind of weird. Trust me, you need to see this movie.

Not sure if it's just this cartoon or if it's the Tex Avery style (considering that I was just a mere child when Cartoon Network stopped showing "The Tex Avery Show"), but I feel like this short had too many jokes going on too quickly. When it comes to other cartoons, like "Looney Tunes" or talkies from the MGM library, they tend to slow down more, and the audience can process everything.

the joke about the pilgrims being divided into democrat and republican camps actually has an interesting story behind it: in 1939, hoping it would boost retail sales by starting the christmas season early, FDR moved thanksgiving's date from the last Thursday of November to the second-to-last.

Before the "War on Christmas" was the "War on Thanksgiving".
11/30/2014 12:18:47 pm
Christmas was simply engaging in some punitive cross-border raids on Thanksgiving

Somehow I had a strong feeling that Joe was going to eat them.

OH, that's SOOOOO RACIST! Ha you race pussy anyway excellent job with the short it was one of my favorite cartoons growing up and as a big fan of Tex Avery you do it justice. oh and by the way I proudly voted for Bruce Rauner over that retarded tax and spend liberal shit head Quinn. I know you are a Democrat Brad but for gods sake aren't you tired of the high taxes and having speaker Mike Madigan run rough shot over the whole state? sorry for the rant this was a little bit late but hey Merry Christmas brad to you and you're loved ones
