Long-running Fox cartoon "The Simpsons" is always available on FXX, a comedy offshoot of FX. The network began airing the library of episodes in August 2014. And this Thanksgiving, they'll start it all over again at episode 1.

Fox

Tune in to a dysfunctional family besides your own this Thanksgiving when FXX starts a marathon of Simpsons episodes. All of them.

"The Simpsons 600" will begin at 11 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 24, and end on Wednesday, Dec. 7, at 11 p.m. That's 600 episodes -- in order -- of the long-running Fox animated sitcom.

This isn't the first time FXX, a child of the FX network, has leaned on The Simpsons for a guaranteed hit. The network ran a Simpsons marathon in 2014 that held the record for the "longest-running marathon in television history" at 552 episodes over 12 days. 

That is, it will hold the record until this one is in the books.

The network launched in 2013, and secured the rights to the cartoon in 2014. Homer would approve of the binge.

It seems everyone approves of The Simpsons. Earlier this month, Fox renewed the series for a record-breaking 29th and 30th seasons. It will move past Gunsmoke as the longest-running scripted television series.

There are other notable marathons beginning Thanksgiving Day (remember the novelty of the FX "Slayathon," starring round-the-clock Buffy the Vampire Slayer? Ah, good times...). And there's some just plain interesting and quirky TV.

El Rey Network 

20-plus places in D-FW to dine for a Thanksgiving meal

The network will start its third annual "Way of the Turkey" marathon on Thanksgiving Day. It's an action-packed schedule that promises "96 hours of hard-hitting, high-kicking kung-fu and lucha libre action."

The marathon will begin on Thursday, Nov. 24, at 5 a.m. with House of Traps and end Sunday, Nov. 27, with The Flying Guillotine 2. There will be a marathon within the marathon, as 22 episodes of Lucha Underground will start at 5 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 26 and end at 4 a.m. the next day.

PBS

The entire family can sit to watch a new Anne of Green Gables starring Martin Sheen on Thursday, Nov. 24, at 7 p.m. and an adaptation of Pollyanna at 8:30 p.m.

Mystery Science Theater 3000

Viewers can stream the fan-voted favorites of the geek-loved show during its annual "Turkey Day Marathon." The binge will include six popular episodes and will start at 11 a.m. on Thursday, Nov. 24. Watch at ShoutFactoryTV.com.

Fuse

That's "Twerkey Day" to you. 

The network plans to air an all-day marathon of Big Freedia: Queen of Bounce. The spotlight around Big Freedia may have shone a little brighter after her appearance on "Formation" off Beyonce's much-talked-about Lemonade album, but Freedia's always been a shining star.

The night, though, belongs to Miss Ross. (Really? Who better to hand off the baton to?) The Wiz (1978) will air at 7 p.m. and again at 10. Fuse is hash-tagging it #Wizgiving.

Antenna TV

There's a whole host of options if you don't have cable or satellite or even streaming. And then there's the "Stuff It! The All in the Family Thanksgiving Day Marathon" on Antenna TV.

The over-the-air channel will air an 18-hour marathon of All in the Family that will begin at 4 a.m. on Thursday, Nov. 24.

All in the Family normally airs on the network weeknights at 8 p.m.

Why you should watch crazy, celebrity-laden new animated show 'Son of Zorn' 

For the little ones

It's not on Thanksgiving Day, but it'll help you veg out with leftovers the next day. The "My Little Pony: Equestria Girls Marathon" on Discovery Family Channel will feature all four (!) Equestria Girls movies, starting Friday, Nov. 25, at 11 a.m.

Despicable Me 2 will get the repeat treatment on Friday on FX, starting at 9 a.m.

Something for everyone

Others marathons on Thursday include House of Payne on BET; Star Trek: The Next Generation and Planet Earth on BBC America; Gone With the Wind on AMC; Sex and the City on Oxygen; The Facts of Life on TV Land; James Bond on Syfy (and Epix on Friday); and NCIS on USA.

There's a pretty hefty listing on TVGuide.com. Pick your poison.
