MASCOTT PRODUCTIONS

Tasty the Turkey & friends

WITH HIS PATRIOTIC TAIL AND PLUCKY NATURE, TASTY THE TURKEY WAS BORN TO BECOME THE FIRST OFFICIAL MASCOT OF THANKSGIVING. HIS GOAL IS TO RECLAIM NOVEMBER AS THE MONTH OF THANKFULNESS, GIVING AND FAMILY TRADITIONS.

ATTACK ADS

Big retail does not want Tasty to be Thanksgiving’s mascot. They’d rather the holiday be only about shopping and not family, tradition and thankfulness so they produced these attack ads to discredit him. H.A.R.V.E.S.T, Holiday Alliance of Retailers for Very Early Shopping on Thanksgiving, is their political action committee.

Music Videos

Why should “holiday music” only mean Christmas songs? Thanksgiving is just as much part of the holiday season but professional songwriters don’t seem to agree. So, we decided to write one ourselves that gives American families a new way to celebrate that most American of holidays.

Ultimately, we hope these will be the beginning of a new song genre, one solely for the currently musically underrepresented Thanksgiving. To help achieve this, we hope others will be inspired to record their own Thanksgiving song in the coming years.

TASTY THE TURKEY

STORIES  

Tasty the Turkey sets the record straight about his contribution to American history in his one-turkey show, "My Patriotic Trail". Over four episodes, he tells the story of how he was there during the creation of the American flag, the signing of the Declaration of Independence, the selection of the national mascot and the first Thanksgiving.

about

 

Tasty the Turkey is a very special bird who uses his intelligence, pluck and patriotic tail to save himself from becoming the guest of honor at Thanksgiving dinner and Thanksgiving from Big Retail. His life story, and specific adventures along the way, make up his current and future catalog of Thanksgiving songs and stories.

Big Retail is not happy that Tasty is promoting Thanksgiving so they are trying to discredit him from becoming its mascot with two attack ads in 2016. In 2015 his one-turkey show, "My Patriotic Tail" tells how he influenced the creation of the United States. In 2014, he proudly added “I Wanna Be a Mascot” to his 2012 self-titled song, “Tasty the Turkey”.

The goal of amateur songwriters Scott Hasty and Scott Henrichsen is to give American families a new way to celebrate a truly American holiday. Ultimately, they consider the Tasty songs to be the beginning of a new musical genre, one solely for Thanksgiving songs. To help achieve this, they hope others will be inspired to record their own Thanksgiving songs.

Songs with characters like “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer” and “Frosty the Snowman” have brought joy to children for generations at Christmas. If Tasty can provide even a fraction of that same happiness to families during the Thanksgiving season, the Scotts will consider these Tasty songs to have been a success.

For the truth the turkey is in comparison a much more respectable bird, and withal a true original native of America… He is besides, though a little vain & silly, a bird of courage...
