Garfield's Thanksgiving
10. Garfield's Thanksgiving
November 22, 1989
On Thanksgiving, according to Garfield, people "celebrate food by eating as much of it as possible. It's a tradition, I love tradition." But that tradition is history following a checkup from veterinarian Liz Wilson, a sassy lady who's also the new heartthrob of Garfield's owner, Jon. The bad news for Garfield: he must go on a diet. The good news for Jon: Liz agrees to come to his house for Thanksgiving. Come the holiday, Jon is in high spirits, busily readying for his dinner guest. Garfield, however, is in the doldrums. He's facing a half of a leaf of lettuce for breakfast, contending with the goofy pooch Odie as his diet monitor and feuding with a talking scale that reads his weight and calls him Orson Welles.

"The world is filled with excitement," Garfield tells Odie. "If you just use your imagination, you don't even have to go find it. It'll find you." And so it does, beginning with Garfield's dream that he's a submarine commander in combat, and continuing with reveries about a Wild West showdown and airborne heroics. But Garfield's most elaborate fantasy is a spoof that melds "The Maltese Falcon" with an adventure worthy of Indiana Jones. In this daydream, Garfield imagines that he's Lance Sterling, a droll soldier of fortune accompanied by his faithful associate Slobber Joe (Odie) on a Middle East mission. Their assignment: recover the stolen Banana of Bombay, the source of the old banana peel sight gag and therefore "the symbol of humor to nations around the world."
