Prizewinning pets

Jon watches some braindead TV show about folks with pets who can do amazing tricks. Garfield and Odie, desperate for love and attention, prove to Jon that they're even better when they do their own little act for him. So Jon takes them on TV where they win the competition(by default).

The success goes to Jon's head and the gang go off to Hollywood to compete in the final round for bigger prizes. Now all the other acts are more sophisticated and better. All Garfield and Odie can do is their best.

It's not the best Garfield TV special but it's still quite good and the cozy image of the Hollywood Hills is rather cute.
