Description: 

Turkey is in trouble. Bad trouble. The kind of trouble where it’s almost Thanksgiving... 

and you’re the main course. But Turkey has an idea--what if he doesn’t look like 

a turkey? What if he looks like another animal instead? After many hilarious attempts,

Turkey comes up with the perfect disguise to make this Thanksgiving the best ever! 

 

Transcription:

Turkey was in trouble. Bad trouble. The kind of trouble where it’s almost Thanksgiving... 

and you’re the main course. But Turkey had an idea...

What if he didn’t look like a turkey? 

What if he looked like a horse? Surely Farmer Jake wouldn’t eat a horse for 

Thanksgiving.His costume wasn’t bad. In fact, Turkey looked just like a horse...

almost.“Mooooo” said Cow. “Stop horsing around, Turkey.” 

“How’d you know it was me?”

moaned Turkey. “Too short,” said Cow. “Gobble, gobble,” grumbled Turkey.

But looking at Cow gave Turkey a new idea. 

Surely Farmer Jake wouldn’t eat a cow for Thanksgiving. His costume wasn’t bad.

In fact, Turkey looked just like a cow... almost. “Oink, oink, oink,” snorted Pig. 

“Holy cow! Is that you, Turkey?” “How’d you know it was me?”

groaned Turkey. “Too skinny,” said Pig.“Gobble, gobble,” grumbled Turkey.

But looking at Pig gave Turkey a new idea.Surely Farmer Jake wouldn’t eat a pig

for Thanksgiving. His costume wasn’t bad.In fact, Turkey looked just like a pig... 

almost. “Baaaa, baaaa,” bleated Sheep. 

“Quit being a ham, Turkey.” “How’d you know it was me?” wailed Turkey.

“Too clean,” said Sheep. “Gobble, gobble,” grumbled Turkey. But looking at 

Sheep gave Turkey a new idea. Surely Farmer Jake wouldn’t eat a sheep for

Thanksgiving. His costume wasn’t bad. In fact, Turkey looked just like a sheep... 

almost. “Cock-a-doodle-doo!” crowed Rooster. “Baaa-d idea, Turkey.”

“How’d you know it was me?” howled Turkey. “Too brown,” squawked Rooster.

“Gobble, gobble,” grumbled Turkey. But looking at Rooster gave Turkey a new idea.

In fact, it was his best idea yet. He already looked a lot like Rooster. 

This costume would be easy! Surely Farmer Jake wouldn’t eat a rooster for 

Thanksgiving... ...or would he? Rooster might be his next choice, Turkey worried, 

since roosters and turkeys look so much alike. Oh, gobble, gobble! Farmer Jake 

came into the barn. “Turkey, turkey, turkey? Come out, come out, 

wherever you are.”“Where’s the turkey?” asked Farmer Jake’s wife.

“I don’t know,” he said.“I looked everywhere!” “Oh, dear. What will we do without 

a turkey for Thanksgiving?”“Well... we could always eat the rooster, I guess.” 

Oh, no, not Rooster! thought Turkey.He looked around desperately for one more idea.

Then, he found it...His costume wasn’t bad... In fact, it was Turkey’s best yet! 

Ding-dong...“Happy Thanksgiving!” “Did you order a pizza?” asked Farmer 

Jake’s wife.“Nope,” he said. “But it’s a good idea.” So they all sat down and

gobbled up the pizza. And it was Turkey’s best Thanksgiving ever!The end. 

 

Questions: 

1. What's the main course in Thanksgiving? 

2. Enumerate the costumes the Turkey tried? 

3. How did the Turkey spared himself from the Thanksgiving dinner table?
