On the night before Thanksgiving, a group of children visit a turkey farm and meet Farmer Mack Nuggett and his coop of cockerels: Ollie, Stanley, Larry, Moe, Wally, Beaver, Shemp, and Groucho.

The children and turkeys giggle and gobble—and everything is gravy. As the trip comes to an end, the children leave the farm with full hearts—and suspiciously big, bulging, turkey-sized bellies—reminding people and poultry alike that there is much to be thankful for.
