Classic Dennis: The Battle of Thanksgiving

Today, in keeping with our holiday tradition, we present a repeat showing of a classic adventure starring Dennis, Tucker, Trixie, and Trouble. This series originally appeared back in 2009. Happy Thanksgiving!

Overheard Around The House

Tucker: (snoring)
Turkey (offscreen): “Gobble gobble gobble!”
Tucker: “ZzzzZZzz … Sure, I’d love to gobble something … Zzzz … what have you got?”

Turkey: “Gobble gobble gurgle cluck?”
Tucker: “You need a place to hide? Sure, you can hide here.”  (beat)  “Wait … you’re not from outer space, are you?”
Turkey: “Gobble?”
Tucker: “Okay, good.”
Turkey: “Gobble gobble chatter?”
Tucker: “Sure, invite your friends.  The more the merrier!”

Later …

Tucker (thinking):  “This is going to be the best Thanksgiving ever!”

Where Have All The Turkeys Gone?

Television Reporter: “… and in other news, a turkey shortage continues to baffle local shoppers, but a famous big-game hunter thinks he can solve the mystery.”

Elmer Fudd: “I am vewwy confident that I wiww be abew to find out whewe that cwazy wabbit has gone.”
Television Reporter: “I think you mean turkeys, don’t you?”
Elmer Fudd: “Oh yes, of couwse. Heh heh heh heh heh.”

Trixie: “This is your fault somehow, isn’t it, Tucker?”
Tucker: “I have no idea what you’re talking about. By the way, do you know where Mama keeps the stuffing?”
Turkey Vulture: “I notice you dogs haven’t moved for a while. Do you think you might be expiring soon?”

The Top Secret Turkey Hideout

Trixie: “You can’t possibly think those turkeys are stupid enough to fall for –”

Trixie: “I stand corrected.”

Meanwhile …

Elmer Fudd: “Candygram.”
Dennis (thinking): “I wasn’t expecting a candygram.”

Observed Around The House

Turkey Vulture: “Are you sure you’re not a rabbit? Because you kind of look like a rabbit to me.”
Trouble: “Don’t make me Tase you, bro.”

Shortly Thereafter …

Elmer Fudd: “They didn’t fall fow the old candygwam twick, which tells me they aw unusually smawt fow dogs.”
Cameraman: “Or they’ve seen ‘Blazing Saddles’.”
Elmer Fudd: “What?”
Cameraman: “Nothing.”
Elmer Fudd: “Anyway, this is just a tempowawy setback. I will wetuwn to Fudd HQ to develop a new plan of attack.”
Turkey Vulture (thinking): “Hmm …”

Later …

And Then …

Turkey: “There are twenty turkeys, three dogs, and a rabbit with an attitude problem in there.”
Elmer Fudd: “I knew that wascally wabbit was involved in this!”
Turkey Vulture: “I don’t care what you do with them as long as I get the leftovers.”
Elmer Fudd: “You’ve got youwself a deal Mr. Vultuwe!”
Trouble (thinking): “!!!!”


Trouble: “What are you big clumsy dogs up to in here?”
Tucker: “We’re, um, helping the turkeys hide, but there are so many that we can’t get the door closed.”
Trouble: “Well that’s fascinating but you should know there’s a crazy hunter outside plotting against all of us.”
Trixie: “It must be that guy from TV. And why are you warning us instead of letting us hang out to dry like you usually do?”
Trouble: “Because he’s working with a vulture who thinks I’m a rabbit.  I am NOT a rabbit.”
Trixie: “Okay, I am taking us to DOGCON 2. That means we have to be extra vigilant against intruders.”
Trouble: “Speaking of intruders, where is the other big clumsy dog?”

Meanwhile …

Dennis: “Hmm, Tucker didn’t mention that he was getting married today, but he never tells me anything and I know he likes cake …”

Happy Thanksgiving (Almost) Every One

Tucker: “What if we stuff them in there with the bathroom plunger?”
Trixie: “That’s been in the toilet!”
Tucker: “You’re right, that’s more of a dessert item.”
Trouble: “You know, for being at ‘DOGCON 2’, you big clumsy dogs seem to still be mostly thinking with your stomachs.”

Dennis: “Tucker, why didn’t you tell us you were getting married today?”
Tucker: “I’m not getting marr — is that a cake?”
Trouble (thinking): For some reason this doesn’t surprise me.”

Elmer Fudd: “Now I’ve got you dogs and wabbits and tuwkeys wight whewe I want you! Heh heh heh heh!”
Turkeys: (gibbering in fear)
Turkey Vulture (thinking): “Mwa-ha-ha-ha!”
Trixie: “Nice going, Dennis.”
Dennis: “My bad.”
Tucker: “Does this mean we’re not getting cake?”
Trouble (thinking): “How do these dogs keep managing to foil MY evil plots when they are clearly incompetent?”

But Suddenly …

Bob the Mad Bomber Pyromaniac Builder: “Ha ha! I bet you thought you would never see ME again!”
Trouble: “Oh no, it’s Bob the Mad Bomber Pyromaniac Builder!”
Dennis: “I thought he got eaten by a hawk.”
Tucker: “We never did see a body.”
Trixie (thinking): “It sure is getting crowded in here.”
Turkey Vulture (thinking): “I had no idea turkeys could move that fast!”

Trouble (thinking): “You have GOT to be kidding.”

Elmer Fudd: “I will call him … Mini-Fudd.”

Turkey Vulture: “Hey! Fudd! Come back here! We had a deal! I was supposed to get the leftovers!”
Trouble: “Are you big clumsy dogs thinking what I’m thinking?”
Dogs: “Yep.”

Later …

Trixie: “Who would like to carve the turkey vulture?”

Happy Thanksgiving!
