King Henry VIII now holding glove not turkey leg

Like many others out there, I recollect seeing TV shows depicting him holding a big fat turkey leg in his right hand, not a glove. And associated it with a hearty appetitite for exotic delicacies, of which Turkey would be one since it was only recently (in the 1500s?) brought to Europe from the Americas.

So, I wonder, are there any TV shows, cartoons, or re-done paintings out there that do depict him holding a turkey leg? Sure, the original at least in this reality is of him holding a glove, but where did we all have a visual memory of seeing him holding a turkey leg, likely decade(s) ago?
