gunzip -c <your .tgz file> | tar xvf -

Notice that if you don't know what is in the file it is a good idea to list its contents first:

gunzip -c <your .tgz file> | tar cvf -

GNU tar could be an option because it can decompress adn then untar just adding a command line option but I don't use it so I don't know that way to uncompress tgz files.
