Lex (Jillian Bell) aims to prove herself worthy of a seat at the grown-ups’ table while Black Saturn (Tucker Gilmore) brings The Groaner (Zeb Wells) to his family’s mansion for a traditional Wheelihan Thanksgiving dinner, complete with snobby gherkins and snobbier guests.

Comments: Super-heroes have a Thanksgiving get together. The characters are so various and entertaining. Most have their own agendas. You might actually feel sorry for Black Saturn.
Rex is kept busy with his turkey. Things certainly do take a turn into weirdness. Then the horror starts. The mutated baby turkeys are awesome as they attack. Watching the animal super-heroes fighting them is wicked. Then the mother attacks.
The animation is good but the characters a lot of them are not used that much. The ones that are are not used in interesting ways. There needed to be a lot more to this episode.
The situation between Black Saturn and the Groaner is done well enough it is not enough to carry the show.
The monster turkeys are the best part.
Thanksgiving with the Super Mansion crew is an unforgettable experience.
