This sometimes very funny and sometimes highly emotional anthology follows Garfield's nine lives throughout history, from his first life as a prehistoric cat-Neanderthal to his ninth life as an astronaut in a jam.
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
The title is a bit of a misnomer, as this special is more about Jon getting a life, rather than Garfield. See more »
Garfield, did you know the living room ceiling has 144 tiles?
The living room has 214.
Why don't you organize your sock drawer?
I'd organize my sock drawer but I already did it last night.
I'll be the judge of that.

Whoa, I'm impressed.

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.
