One of the weaker Garfield specials but still worth seeing!
6 November 2009 | by (Albuquerque New Mexico) – See all my reviews

It's the day before Turkey Day, Jon takes Garfield to the vet for an appointment and he has a crush on Dr. Liz Wilson. The cat is recommended to go on a diet for once as it becomes kind of a nightmare for our hero as Jon invites Liz over for Thanksgiving dinner as he try to impress her as fast as possible to make her his girl.

Not as strong as some of the other specials especially my favorite ones being "Christmas" and "Halloween" but still a worthy part of the on-going Garfield specials of the 80's. The story is not too bad but does have a touching moment where everyone is at dinner enjoying their meal with a quality song, Pat Carrol does co-star as a guest as Grandma from the Christmas Special as she returns here.
