Another satisfying holiday treat.
10 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Tommmorrow's Thanksgiving, and Garfield is looking forward to eating. But after a trip to the vet. Garfield was put on a strict diet due to his weight problem.

Jon Arbuckle manage to invite Liz(the Vet) to Thanksgiving dinner.

Which makes it harder for Garfield as he's going through a lot of pain as it is.

Will he survive the diet or will he get one taste of turkey? The animation in this one is just like in the popular TV series, as it was made when the TV show was still on the air. That and it's the only Garfield TV movie to have Liz as a Secondary character instead of a Minor character.

Contains the running jokes and gags you'd expect in any Garfield TV movie.
