Turkey Day is an annual Thanksgiving Day marathon of MST3K episodes. It originally aired on Comedy Central, and was first held in 1991 to commemorate the show's third anniversary. Special bumper segments were shown between episodes, and each Turkey Day marathon from 1992 onwards featured the premiere showing of at least one new episode.
In 2013, the tradition was revived on the internet, with six episodes selected by Joel streaming online at mst3kturkeyday.com starting at noon. The announcement of the stream garnered significant media attention. Joel and Shout! Factory have hosted a new six-episode marathon every year since.
