A WPIX Thanksgiving Tradition Resumes

By Jerry Barmash Comment

WPIX/Channel 11 ushers in the holiday season with the Thanksgiving staple The March of the Wooden Soldiers at 9 a.m. The 1934 classic stars the comedy team of Laurel and Hardy in a lighthearted version of the Victor Herbert operetta about a fantasy world where toys are made and nursery rhymes come to life.

Perhaps the start of a new Thanksgiving tradition, WPIX offers an Odd Couple marathon of 12 viewers choice selections.

The Odd Couple, starring Emmy Award winners Tony Randall and Jack Klugman, originally aired from 1970 to 1975, but has been shown on Channel 11 for decades. Fans can vote for their favorite episodes (by membership) at rewards.wpix.com.

The Odd Couple marathon runs from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
