In the spirit of Thanksgiving, here's some arts-flavored trivia about famous Thanksgiving movie and television scenes. Can you figure them out?
There are some movies that have holiday dinners you'd be thrilled to be a part of, and some you'd be relieved to never have to see again.

The answers will be posted on Friday, along with as many Thanksgiving-flavored YouTube clips that can be assembled. Leave your answers in the comments, along with your favorite pop culture …
