Week 85

Thanksgiving Surprise with Paul Dini


In addition to reflecting on why they are grateful, lots of Americans celebrate Thanksgiving with dinner, parades, and American Football.  Misty Lee knows which one of the three is Paul Dini’s favorite – and she has a Turkey Day surprise for him.  We’re pretty sure he’ll be delighted!
