Garfield and his owner, Jon Arbuckle, are in a rut. Life for them is a complete bore. They both need a life. Jon tries several unsuccessful times to get a date. Then he attends a class for the personality impaired where he meets a young woman and all seems to be great for Jon, but Garfield starts to feel neglected and left out. Written by
In this TV special Jon is the one who needs a life. The highlight of his day is counting the tiles on the ceiling and rearranging his sock drawer. Not content with this forever, Jon takes Garfield to a self help group in order to meet people. How many people will be interested in a loner 20-something who's best friend is a cat?
After several failed attempts at getting a girl, including one cringeworthy dance scene that rivals David Brents' fusion of Flashdance and MC Hammer in The Office (Disco's dead?, says Jon), he is more than shocked to find a cute girl who is as much as a jerk as himself.
Naturally, they get on but Garfield is worried that John will forget about him and prefer having kids to a cat. Fortunately Jon's new girlfriend is allergic to cats.
With slicker animation than past TV specials, this feels like a longer episode of Garfield and Friends.
