18 of the Best Thanksgiving Themed TV Episodes Ever

1. How I Met Your Mother, “Slapsgiving” (3.09)

“Slapsgiving” is not only a great Thanksgiving episode but one of the defining episodes of How I Met Your Mother. The final slap of the “slap bet” is looming and Marshall (Jason Segel) is taunting the hell out of Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) in anticipation. The third slap Barney has acquired from losing the bet comes to fruition at Lily (Alyson Hannigan) and Marshall's first holiday as a married couple. This episode is so great and there are also kinds of great first-holiday moments. It's so funny that not even Ted (Josh Radnor) could ruin it with his antics.
