Throwback Thursday: The First ‘Friends’ Thanksgiving

Superfan TV

On November 17, 1994, Boyz II Men was making love to you; Westworld star, Thandie Newton was getting her blood sucked by Brad Pitt in Interview With the Vampire; and people were gathered around the boob tube for their first Thanksgiving with America’s Friends.

The TV people must’ve seen that night was the NBC lineup of Mad About You, Friends, Seinfeld, and ER. The powerhouse lineup was celebrating Thanksgiving, and on Friends, it was “The One Where Underdog Gets Away.”

In the classic episode, Rachel was trying to get to Vail to spend the holiday with her family, Ross was talking to his unborn child, and Joey was denying VD rumors thanks to an unfortunate ad campaign.

Although, the real drama was when the gang got locked out of the apartment with the turkey and all the fixins still cooking inside. By the time they got inside, the food was ruined, but they didn’t let it ruin their Thanksgiving, thanks to Ugly Naked Guy reminding them that what really matters is being with Friends.
