There is something about the holiday that makes a night on the couch watching movies a must.  Maybe it is the food coma that sucks us into the couch or the impeding colder weather that keeps us inside, but whatever it is, Thanksgiving is the season of snuggling on the sofa with the ones we love most and enjoying some mindless entertainment.  And there is no better way to celebrate the season than a full-on binge session of the greatest Thanksgiving movies of all-time with some turkey sandwiches and stuffing on the side.  So, start the fire and settle in for an evening of leftovers and these Top-12 greatest Thanksgiving movies ever.

Top-12 Thanksgiving Movies

This list of the Top-12 greatest Thanksgiving movies is going to induce snacking and pajama wearing, so go ahead and waste a weekend wearing sweats and eating snacks.  This list is in chronological order and has a full range of cartoons, comedies and family drama to keep everyone entertained for hours.  Keep the Kia in the garage, and empty some of the leftovers from the fridge while completely relaxing without a care in the world while watching these Thanksgiving movies.

Miracle on 34th Street – 1947

Mouse on the Mayflower – 1968

A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving – 1973

Planes, Trains and Automobiles – 1987

Garfield’s Thanksgiving – 1989

Dutch – 1991

We know that Miracle on 34th Street has Santa Clause on the cover, but it begins at Thanksgiving and follows through the holiday season, so it qualified for us here at Carolina Kia.  Planes, Trains and Automobiles is a classic any time of year and Dutch is the underrated gem of this first group.
