I love a good Thanksgiving episode of any television show. It’s one of those few episodes where you can almost always count on having the entire ensemble in one room, which always makes for laughs…or drama. These are the TV families from the past and present I wouldn’t mind gobbling up turkey with today.

Parenthood – Season 5

The Bravermans make us laugh, they make us cry, and we seriously want to know what goes down in their lives on Thanksgiving. Who eats the most turkey? Who really brings it with amazing sides? Please invite us over next year.

Boy Meets World Cast

The Boy Meets World clan would be so much fun to dine with then and now. Maybe we could eat with the 90s characters on actual Thanksgiving and meet up with the updated Girl Meets World crew for leftovers.

Full househh

There are many reasons why feasting with The Tanners would be the bomb, but namely because we know Danny Tanner would be all over the cleanup and we'd never have to worry about lifting a finger to do those dishes. They'd be clean before dinner was even over.

Family ties

Who didn't want to be a member of The Keaton family back in the 80s? Thanksgiving with Alex and the gang would be so funny you could probably laugh off the calories after dinner.

Duck Dynasty

The Duck Dynasty family is our current pop culture obsession and we can only imagine how they throw down around the Thanksgiving table.

Cosby show

Oh, Cosby family, how we love you. Thanksgiving with this TV family would surely be filled with some kind of song and dance number that would be super fun.

Caroline, Chris and Albie Manzo

The Manzos are among our favorite reality families and you know Caroline can cook up a storm in the kitchen. As long as the boys don't make us take part in that ham-throwing game we're cool.

The Goldbergs take us back to the sitcoms of the 80s, and we love that. This dysfunctional (and a whole lot like our own) family would make us feel right at home.
