Thanksgiving is well in the past and turkeys across the country are breathing a sigh of relief.  This relief will last a few months, and as such- why not look at a movie about our delicious feathered friends (turkeys) with the movie Free Birds.

Free Birds follows the story of turkeys during the Thanksgiving season who are trying to not be the main course and live to see another day.  The main character, Reggie, is initially the only smart turkey of the group at the farm trying to warn the others of the eminent holiday and what this holiday means.  But instead Reggie winds up as next in line for dinner.  But lucky for Reggie his adventure continues as he is the pardoned turkey, and goes on to live at Camp David eating pizza.  But his days of pizza and soap operas comes to an end with Jake.  Through time travel, kidnapping, gun powder and some love Reggie makes new friends, saves the day and makes pizza a national food.

Free Birds Leave Their Mark on U.S. History


The characters of the hilarious animated adventure take over famous US Landmarks in honor of the film’s release on Blu-ray and DVD.

Jake and Reggie were two turkeys with a simple plan–to steal an artificially-intelligent time machine named S.T.E.V.E. from a top-secret government testing site, use it to travel to the first Thanksgiving and get turkey off the holiday menu once and for all.

Get Fit with Your Friends from FREE BIRDS and TV’s Toughest Trainer Chris Powell


Kids, we know it may seem more fun to live a lazy life of pizza, TV and fuzzy slippers like Reggie from FREE BIRDS, but if you want to be big and strong like Jake, it’s going to take work! That why we asked trainer and host of ABC’s “Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition,” Chris Powell, to share some tips to help you get moving and eat things that will keep you healthy. If you follow his plan, pretty soon you’ll have pecs and glutes as impressive as Jake’s!


Tip #1: Eat Breakfast.  Mom is right, it really IS the most important meal of the day!  Eat something hearty that’s going to give you a lot of energy, like eggs and toast, or yogurt and granola. Start the day strong!

Tip#2: Get to school at least 15 minutes early for recess. Run, jump, climb, and play your favorite sports. You’ll get some extra time with your friends, you’ll get stronger and faster, and you’ll supercharge your body and mind for learning!
