Plot

The Garfield Show picks up, mainly, on Garfield's usual antics and frolics, usually in function of his laziness and gluttony. It focuses on his quirky misadventures, while always highlighting the fat cat's love for lasagna. Garfield lives with his owner, Jon Arbuckle, and his owner's dog, Odie, in a detached 2-story house (as opposed to the one-story house in Garfield and Friends). The 1950s-era television set in the living room still has a rabbit-ears antenna, but it now has a converter box (in fact, several allusions to 21st-century technology are made in the series). The premise of the show, which is comedic slapstick, lies mainly in the events of each single episode. Usually Garfield has to solve problems that he himself causes, but always tries to skive off, and actually solves them in the end.
