Surprised by the lack of internet and technology in Turkey Hollow, Tim and Annie soon find themselves swept up in tracking the “Howling Hoodoo,” an elusive monster that, up until now, Turkey Hollow residents have long dismissed as mere legend. The Thanksgiving holiday threatens to take a bleak turn when a scheming neighbor frames Aunt Cly for turkey theft, but the fractured family teams up with some surprising new friends to save the day.
The was initially released on Lifetime for Thanksgiving in 2015 and was adapted from an unproduced 1968 treatment by Jim Henson and Jerry Juhl called “The Musical Monsters of Turkey Hollow”.
