To celebrate both the holiday of Thanksgiving and the august tradition of special Thanksgiving episodes, we look back at two shows we covered in previous exhibits, watching holiday-themed episodes we skipped in the first go-round. Both A Different World and Third Rock From the Sun tackled everyone's favorite family-and-food holiday in their own unique way.

Do they hold up as great TV? Do they capture the hallmarks of their respective shows? Is Whitley a classy drunk? Does Jan Hooks smear gravy in her cleavage (spoiler: yes)? And most importantly, can these eps hold a candle to WKRP's classic "Turkeys Away"?

Episodes we watched:

A Different World, "If You Like Pilgrim Coladas", Season 2 Ep 6

Third Rock From the Sun, "Gobble, Gobble, Dick, Dick", Season 2 Ep 10
