Segment One: Dr. Forrester greets viewers and sums up Turkey Day. To add to the excitement, Frank has been strapped into a giant high-chair, and Dr. F will be forcefeeding him a themed turkey that represents each episode. The Beatniks Turkey has a beret and goatee; Frank looks ready to dive in.
Segment Two: The remains of The Beatniks Turkey is displayed as Frank dabs as his mouth with a napkin. Dr. F presents the be-shurikened Master Ninja I Turkey, to which Frank confidently replies, "I think it would be fun to eat another turkey."
Segment Five: Frank picks his teeth with a credit card and goes over the rules for this Turkey Day as Dr. F presents the City Limits Turkey, complete with switchblade. Frank says he's comfortably full, but Dr. F insists. Frank: "Well, it is Thanksgiving after all..."
Segment Seven: The Giant Gila Monster Turkey is prepared. It tastes just like chicken!
Segment Eight: Frank is finally feeling the effects of all that turkey. He groans and cries when Dr. F presents a big bowl of King Dinosaur Turkey.
Segment Nine: Dr. F excitedly presents Frank with the Santa Claus Conquers the Martians Turkey instead of a real present. Frank wails in anguish.
Segment Ten: Frank sobs out the next greeting. Dr. F dubs Frank "Sir Eats-a-Lot" with the carving knife from The Magic Sword Turkey.
Segment Eleven: Dr. F boosts Frank's confidence like a boxing coach. The Teenagers from Outer Space Turkey is used as a punching bag, much to Forrester's dismay.
Segment Thirteen: Dr. F helps a passed-out Frank stuff down The Unearthly Turkey. "What we have here is a failure to masticate!"
Segment Fourteen: Frank seems to have recovered and is hungry for turkey. Dr. F presents him with the Gamera vs. Guiron. Frank, in a squeaky voice: "Gamera has good meat and is a friend to children!" Forrester actually looks disturbed.
Segment Fifteen: The final turkey is presented for Fire Maidens of Outer Space, which Frank has already started on. Dr. F counted on Frank giving up so he could have some turkey too, and asks for a bit. Frank: "Get your own."
Segment Sixteen: Frank, having finished all fifteen turkeys, garnering congratulations from Dr. F, is ready for bed. Dr. F tries to convince him to stay up to watch This is MST3K. Frank: "It sounds like you're saying we're just characters on some low-budget cable show."
Note: Only bumpers original to this Turkey Day have been included here; some bumpers from Turkey Day '91 were also shown.
Bumper Five: Crow: "If you're taping, this is a good time to pause!"
Bumper Seven: The SOL crew delivers a stilted greeting. They are not impressed and decide to do another take.
Bumper Eight: Gypsy: "You're watching Turkey Day at Comedy Central. You know, cleaning up isn't just a girl's job!"
Bumper Nine: Servo: "You're watching Turkey Day at Comedy Central. Now might be a good time to check on your mom."
Bumper Ten: Servo reminds viewers they are watching Teenagers from Outer Space and over twenty-one hours into the marathon before making some strange noises.
Bumper Eleven: Joel: "Hey, you're watching Turkey Day at Comedy Central. Thanks for hanging in there with us!"
Bumper Twelve: Joel reminds viewers that they are watching the final movie of the marathon, the world premiere of Fire Maidens of Outer Space.
