I have to confess, this is silly. So what? Life is silly, and the turkey is the perfect vehicle for pointing this out.
Mr Bean (ITV, 1990-1995)|
Mr Bean is entertaining his girlfriend, Irma Gobb (Matilda Ziegler) for the Holiday. While stuffing the turkey, he loses his watch. Suspecting the watch is inside the turkey, he goes searching, first with a flashlight then, naturally, by sticking his head inside. Meanwhile, Irma arrives and he lets her in, hiding the turkey (still on his head) with a towel. The towel soon falls off, but Irma is busy getting ready and doesn't see him in the background. "Do you need any help," she asks? "Have you got the turkey on?"
Bean: The Movie (1997)|
3rd Rock from the Sun (NBC, 1996-2001)|
Thanksgiving dinner is over, and the turkey has been devoured. Harry Solomon (French Stewart) and dinner guest Vicki Dubcek (Jan Hooks) are in the kitchen, and are clearly starting to get turned on by each other. In a tribute to the classic scene in Tom Jones (1963), Vicki and Harry begin eating bits of the leftovers, increasing the erotic innuendo with each bite. When Vicki starts munching on a turkey leg, Harry abandons caution and puts the entire carcass on his head. Vicki is beside herself . . .
Even Stevens (Disney Channel, 1999-2003)|
Louis Stevens (Shia Labeouf) gets a little confused in the kitchen and gives his family a Hannukah present they (presumably) don't expect.
