Cartoon Network will celebrate Thanksgiving 2007 with a day-long celebration of “Friendsgiving,” a 12-hour marathon (7 a.m.-7 p.m. ET/PT) of best-ever Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends episodes plus an encore presentation of the Emmy-nominated 90-minute animated feature, “Good Wilt Hunting.”
Fans of the multiple award-winning animated series are also invited to tune in Thanksgiving morning, Nov. 22, to the 81st Anniversary Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in which Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends will be represented by a 30-foot-tall float spotlighting favorite series characters as singing puppets.
The Turkey-Day festivities will conclude with the network premiere of “The Little Peas,” an all-new Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends episode.
“Good friends are something everyone can appreciate and give thanks for this holiday,” said Rico Hill, vice president of programming and scheduling for Cartoon Network. “With a musical place in the annual Macy’s parade—the traditional kick-off to the holiday season—a special Foster’s marathon, a heart-warming movie, and topping it off with a brand new premier, Cartoon Network aims to give kids and families a holiday event they’ll remember for years to come.”
