Thanksgiving is a holiday that doesn’t have a lot of video devoted to celebrating it. Sure, you’ve got the live action classic “Planes, Trains and Automobiles,” the mediocre “Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” and few other reasonably good efforts, but Thanksgiving is definitely lost between Halloween and Christmas, both from a video standpoint and a cultural one. And there’s certainly been a near total dearth of stop motion Thanksgiving themed efforts.
But that’s changed now due to the good folks at Stoopid Buddy Stoodios, who’ve just released the latest in their line of “Supermansion” holiday classics. In this stand-alone special, “A Prayer for Mr. T,” we learn that aging crime fighter Titanium Rex (voiced by Bryan Cranston) and evil foe Dr. Devizo (Chris Pine) have been engaged in a long-running “battle of the bird,” as Cranston puts it.
There’s certainly much to be thankful for when watching this, but mostly I’m thankful because it’s free.
