Ah, Thanksgiving — that yearly ritual of coma-inducing food, awkward conversation with scarcely seen relatives and, if you come from a certain kind of family, hours and hours of cheesy movies, expertly skewered by Joel (or Mike) and the ‘bots on Mystery Science Theater 3000. Thanksgiving and MST3K have always gone hand in hand: the first episode ever broadcast went out on Thanksgiving Day, 1988, on KTMA in Minneapolis, and during the height of the show’s popularity on Comedy Central, the network ceded its entire Thanksgiving schedule to MST3K to run the beloved Turkey Day Marathons. In those pre-Internet, pre-file-sharing days, the Turkey Day extravaganzas — blocks of as many as 15 two-hour episodes in a row, with seasonally appropriate skits and bumpers recorded by the cast — gave fans a much-needed opportunity to catch up on their home taping; beyond that, in a television landscape filled with numbing parades, predictable football games and The Wizard of Oz, Turkey Day was a chance to unbutton your pants, sink into the sofa and surf a wave of tryptophan grogginess accompanied by the cleverest, hippest comedy on the box.

In salute to the glorious Turkey Days of yore, Shout! Factory is enlisting series creator Joel Hodgson to host a second, online Turkey Day Marathon, beginning at noon EST on the day, and it has also bequeathed us a new DVD set — the 31st — featuring special Turkey Day-themed packaging and extras. Only Dr. Forrester (and possibly Bobo) would bogart such a feast, so once again, Popdose Mega-MSTies Tony Redman and Dan Wiencek came together to share in the joys of Mystery Science Theater 3000, Volume XXXI: The Turkey Day Collection.

The Marx Brothers (Groucho, Chico, Harpo, and sometimes Zeppo) entertained audiences for many years in their movies, and still do so today. However, much of their television work is less well known. Shout! Factory hopes to remedy this with their 3 DVD set The Marx Brothers TV Collection.

Groucho made a second career on television with his game show You Bet Your Life, but he and his brothers made other appearances on television as well. This set collects many of them and, as you would expect with a set like this, it’s a mixed bag. Here are some highlights:
