The phlegmatic feline from the funny papers is put (horror of horrors!) on a diet the day before the annual food fest. The lack of sustenance makes Garfield testy to say the least. He decides to sabotage Jon's dinner date with the veterinarian Liz. These half-hour seasonal cartoon specials are usually groaners, but the humor and animation in Garfield's Thanksgiving are a notch above the norm.
