Sunday Cinema – “The Mouse on the Mayflower”


Back before the multitude of channel offerings & on-demand programming, we would look forward to the holidays because television networks would play special programming that you could only see once a year. “The Mouse on the Mayflower” is one such selection that showed usually the evening before Thanksgiving.

Created by the team of Rankin/Bass (famous for many other holiday favorites), this cartoon tells the tale of the first Thanksgiving through the eyes of a mouse that arrived in America via the Mayflower. Surprisingly, it still holds up over 40 years later…

Someone was kind enough to digitize a copy and place it online for all to enjoy!
