Garfield's Thanksgiving Special
In case you thought that perhaps Garfield was a one trick pony when it came to Holiday specials, you would be mistaken my friends. Garfield also knocked out this Thanksgiving special in 1989. I don't think this aired too often because I remember seeing it like once as a kid. There is also a Christmas special that we'll get into next month!
This time around, Garfield discovers that Jon is scheduled to take him to the dreaded vet, and in an attempt to make Jon forget, Garfield removes a page from the daily calendar and discovers the next day is Thanksgiving. Garfield excitedly shows the calender to Jon, who informs Garfield that they best go to the store to get all the food for their feast.
The next day, it becomes quite apparent that Jon has no idea how to put together a Thanksgiving Day meal. After literally tossing the frozen turkey in the oven and turning up the heat way too high, Jon starts to "cook" the vegetables, which Garfield delights in sabotaging. "If I can't enjoy Thansksgiving," he says "No one will!" with that Garfield covers the vegetables in garlic.
