Reggie was one of the Pardoned Turkey, spared from being killed on this Thanksgiving. he was adopted into the President's house and soon adapted to a luxurious life by watching television and eating pizzas. however, his perfect life was disrupted when Jake, a seemingly crazy turkey who dragged him along with an insane idea of travelling back in time to make sure that turkeys were not part of the first Thanksgiving. now in 1621, Reggie and Jake found themselves getting involved in a turkey's clan struggle for survival.
despite the not so pretty artwork, the film was highly entertaining and even a little in depth to be labeled as children story. the travelling through time concept was slightly complicated, if not confusing, even for us. as annoying was it was to watch Reggie, he became much more lovable after he met Jenny, daughter of the clan leader. Jenny was easily the most lovable character among the turkeys, brave and straightforward, she was indeed the best candidate for the next leadership.
