Kong and stuffing

 When I tell people I spend part of every Thanksgiving holiday weekend (if not Thursday, then surely Friday) watching the 1933 King Kong, they think I’m wacky.

But I found a website that proves giant apes and turkey go together somewhere else besides in my mind. Check it out here, evidence that WOR in New York started the fad that carried over to WUAB Channel 43 in Lorain/Cleveland, where I first became fixated on King Kong on Thanksgiving.

If football and stuffing go hand in hand, why not a giant ape, too?

Happy Thanksgiving!

    Hey, I remember that! I was in High School in the seventies, and my cousins were from NYC, and they were impressed that Channel 43 also showed King Kong. We would watch Kong in the basement while our dads and grandpa watched the Detroit Lions upstairs.

    I remember the fights my brother and I used to get into with our sister because we wanted Kong and she wanted to watch “The Sound of Music.” I also remember ABC used to show “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World” every Thanksgiving.
