Ready to talk turkey? There are very few successful animated flicks about Thanksgiving, ones that can find their way to be played ad nauseum on some basement DVD while the adults upstairs watch the parade and football. Free Birds attempts to change all that with a light, breezy, time-travel ‘toon that actually works for the entire family.
That’s not to say this dish is very deep. It’s fun, airy, and “in the vein of many newer cartoons” stuffed full of pop culture references and absurdity. This tale warns us right at the beginning that this isn’t historically accurate; except for the talking turkeys.
