Summary

A family of three squirrels, a father, a mother, and a son, observe a human family having their Thanksgiving dinner. They prepare for their own feast. The father tells the son about their ancestor, Jeremy Squirrel, who interacted with the Pilgrims and the Native Americans, and saved the lives of Pilgrim boy Johnny Cooke and Native American boy Little Bear, who went missing in the woods on Thanksgiving Day back in 1621. After the father ends the story, the three sit down to share a large walnut, but the father accidentally destroys it while trying to crack it open. The son wishes Jeremy was still around to join them, whereupon the portrait of Jeremy comes alive, and nibbles a nut hidden under his Pilgrim hat.
