Cleveland (Mike Henry) celebrates his first Thanksgiving with his new family, as well as his own parents, Cookie (guest voice Francis Callier) and Freight Train (guest voice Craig Robinson), and Donna's Auntie Momma (guest voice Kym Whitley). The holiday gets complicated when Roberta (Nia Long) and Federline (guest voice Jamie Kennedy) decide to celebrate on their own and Cleveland discovers a surprising secret about Auntie Momma. Guest voices Daryl Hall & John Oates appear as an angel and a devil to help Cleveland decide if he should expose Auntie Momma's secret.

The series features the voice talents of Mike Henry, Sanaa Lathan, Reagan Gomez-Preston, Kevin Michael Richardson and Seth MacFarlane, as well as Arianna Huffington and Jason Sudeikis in recurring roles. Season One guest stars include Jamie Kennedy, Taraji P. Henson, Kanye West and Fergie.

This is Daryl Hall and John Oates' first appearance on the show, however, viewers can anticipate seeing them pop up in future episodes, as well.

Daryl Hall and John Oates have recently released the uber-successful 'Do What You Want, Be What You Are: The Music of Daryl Hall and John Oates' (RCA/Legacy), the duo's first ever box set, which debuted at #89 on the Billboard chart - the third highest CD box set debut of 2009 behind the two Beatles sets. The set also debuted at #17 on Billboard's R&B chart, as well.

Critics are effusively praising the "unsurprisingly excellent" (Washington Post Online) set, saying 'Do What You Want...' "will make fans' dreams come true (woo-ooh!)" (Entertainment Weekly). The Huffington Post declares that the "74-track assembly truly is one of the best box sets ever released."
