The House of Yes
Another one I haven't seen, but it popped up on several lists of Thanksgiving movies. It doesn't sound very family friendly

A mentally unbalanced young woman (who thinks she's Jackie Kennedy) goes into a murderous rage when her brother comes home for Thanksgiving and announces he's engaged.

Thanksgiving mice!
Description from Goodreads:
It"s Thanksgiving and four adorable mice are putting on a play for their woodland friends in this delightful read-aloud, the fourth book about the holiday mice. Lively verse introduces beginning readers to basic words and rhyming sounds and tells the story of the very first Thanksgiving, when the Pilgrim mice traveled across the sea and settled in America. The simple story-within-a-story format, accompanied by colorful, action-filled illustrations of mice in costume, also serves as a basic introduction to theater.
One is a Feast for a Mouse: A Thanksgiving Tale
Description from Goodreads:
The Thanksgiving feast is over. Mouse spots one pea, which is quite enough for one mouse, but he keeps adding other tidbits. Then Cat sees him, in a story about giving thanks for the little things. Full color.
