In the holiday special, the annual Thanksgiving turkey competition between Titanium Rex and Dr. Devizo goes awry when Rex's turkey transforms into a nightmarish bird monster
'SuperMansion' fans, rejoice! 'A Prayer for Mr. T: The SuperMansion Thanksgiving Special,' is gearing up to premiere this Thursday, November 15, marking the fourth such special for the Emmy-nominated adult comedy series.
In the holiday special, the annual Thanksgiving turkey competition between Titanium Rex (Bryan Cranston) and Dr. Devizo (Chris Pine) goes awry when Rex’s turkey transforms into a nightmarish bird monster whose eggs hatch additional freakish bird creatures at an alarming rate. Lex (Jillian Bell) aims to prove herself worthy of a seat at the grown-ups’ table, while Black Saturn (Tucker Gilmore) brings the Groaner (Zeb Wells) to his family’s mansion for a traditional Wheelihan Thanksgiving dinner, complete with snobby gherkins and snobbier guests.
In a new teaser released for the series, Black Saturn learns the specific difference between a pickle and a gherkin, courtesy the Groaner (Zeb Wells). Hiding out next to the trash from his family's Thanksgiving dinner upon his mother's strict orders so no one finds out he's her son, Black Saturn, and the Groaner are intruded by Saturn's mom as she intends to 'take out the trash'. And, as the old lady flings a jar of pickles at the Groaner, thus begins his elaborate discourse on the difference between the two. As the Groaner so eloquently points out: "Every gherkin is a pickle but not every pickle is a gherkin."
He then continues his explanation, saying: "See, these are bread and butter chips. This is Thanksgiving, not a white-trash barbeque." Surprisingly to that, Saturn's mother laughs. That's right, and she herself is quite shocked by that. But of course, she has an explanation of sorts and points out that "I usually hate your jokes, but I am wasted, and you are hilarious." And then she does the unthinkable! She actually invites the Groaner inside to the dinner, where she claims to have flown out some pies from France. Saturn, though, is made to stay out.
And when an outraged Saturn exclaims he thought they weren't serving dessert, his mother very skillfully changes the name to 'sardined asparagus.' But sadly, what is Saturn's gift in all of this? A can of cranberry sauce even though he doesn't have a can opener! The teaser ends with Saturn breaking down into a pool of tears, lamenting how with 'great power' comes pretty much no great luck at all when it comes to family Thanksgivings!
