Literature / Rugrats: The Turkey Who Came To Dinner

Go To

Based off of the Rugrats Thanksgiving Episode of the same name. It was adapted by Kitty Richards from the script by Mark Palmer.

This book provides examples of:

  • All There in the Manual: The back of the book provides information on the first Thanksgiving.
  • Compressed Adaptation: As to be expected several things were left out that were in the episode.
    • The turkey doesn't have a attraction to Spike.
    • Angelica never goes to Drew and Stu about the turkey.
  • Face on the Cover: Tommy and the turkey.
  • Seesaw Catapult: The babies tried to do this with the turkey to get it to fly, but failed. Later on Boris and Lou accidentally do this to the turkey, which resulted in the destruction of several satellite dishes.
  • Senior Sleep Cycle: Boris was asleep snoring in the beginning of the book and goes back to sleep as soon a the delivery man delivers the "live" turkey to the house.
  • Thanksgiving Episode: Not surprising since the book is based on the Rugrats Thanksgiving Special.
