{Open to Strong Bad standing in a field in autumn, wearing a turkey costume.}

STRONG BAD: {singing} Dun dun dadun dun DUN! Oh, I'm some stupid turkey, as stupid as they come! Cut off my head,

{An axe, swung from above, cuts the "turkey" head from Strong Bad's costume.}

STRONG BAD: {singing} stuff me with bread,

{With a "pop!", a loaf of bread appears in the "turkey" head's beak.}

STRONG BAD: {singing} go and suck your thumb!

{Screen blanks with buttons reading "Back" and "Play Again" appearing}

STRONG BAD: {offscreen} Hey, wait a minute! Where's The King of Town?

{Cut to the King of Town, who is much fatter than usual, and lying down behind an overturned table amidst dozens of cleared plates, a fish skeleton, and a platter holding the ribs of some meaty animal. He turns green for a split second, then his face goes back to normal.}

THE KING OF TOWN: Doo hoo ooh..oooh....{hiccups} More gravy, please!

{The King of Town slowly turns greener. The "Back" and "Play Again" buttons reappear.}

Fun Facts


  • Though Strong Bad still has a bit of his Mexican accent, he is now starting to sound a bit more like he does today.
  • The final "Go and suck your thumb" is in stereo. For example, notice how Homestar is only on the left channel.
  • The title description used to say "Strong Bad gives thanks while the King tanks", but was later changed to "Strong Bad gives thanks". Now it says "Strap on that feed bag!!".
  • The YouTube description for this toon is "Strong Bad dresses up like a turkey."


  • When the Back and Play Again buttons come up for the first time, they aren't clickable.
  • At the end, the King of Town's face becomes greener and greener the longer you watch, but it eventually stops.
  • As noted in Trivia, when everyone is singing "Go and suck your thumb", Homestar's voice is separate from all the others. If you pause the Flash file when the line is sung, Homestar's voice continues singing anyway.
  • This toon was originally a belated Thanksgiving toon, having been released significantly after Thanksgiving of 2001.
  • Five of the main characters appear from Hammerspace.
    • Additionally, the axe swings down from out of Hammerspace.
  • When the King of Town hiccups in the end, he may or may not be suffering a heart attack, as he does in record book, when Strong Bad inquires about his "hiccups".


  • When Homestar talks, his hat moves up and down.

Real-World References

  • The position of Strong Bad's turkey costume with its enormous plumage resembles the famous NBC peacock, especially prior to the current version of the six-feather peacock. The original peacock had eleven feathers, which is just one short of Strong Bad's costume, which features twelve feathers.

  • The DVD version features creators' commentary. To access it, switch your DVD player's audio language selection while watching.

Commentary Transcript

(Commentary by: Matt Chapman, Mike Chapman)

MATT: I did this... on Thanksgiving. I didn't think of it until Thanksgiving, and put it up, like, at— at 11:00 p.m. on Thanksgiving.

MIKE: {laughs}

MATT: That was when I lived in New York and I did it all myself.

MIKE: There's some size issues happening with all those characters!

MATT: Yeah, not to scale.

MIKE: Yeah.

MATT: Yeah, I don't think that any of them are correct. {Homestar invites all to partake of the wonderous feast} {sadly} Okay...

MIKE: Oh, I— I did remember I like this King of Town, uh, all the plates.

MATT: Yeah?

MIKE: Stacked-up plates.

MATT: Were you impressed with my style?

MIKE: Yeah, 'cause Matt did this one all by himself.

MATT: {stifles laughter} Those very flat... hills in the background. And there's shading on them.

MIKE: Not advanced shading, anyway.

MATT: {laughs} No-ho, sir!
