Overview

Box O' Fun is the first segment from the second episode of Garfield and Friends.

Synopsis

When Jon brings home a cardboard box, Garfield uses it for imaginary adventures.

Plot

Jon Arbuckle arrives home with a box full of books, announcing that he plans to study. He tells Garfield that he needs quiet while he learns another language.

After Jon leaves, Garfield jumps into a cardboard box that Jon left behind. He imagines himself as racer Enzio Bodoni in the World Champion Time Trials. Enzio gets past all of the other racers, making a quick "pit stop" at Vince's Burgers. Later Enzio's "car" goes out of control as Car #34 pulls up beside him. Before the race can finish, Jon comes in, remembering that he left a book behind.

After Jon leaves, Garfield imagines himself as a Lasagna One pilot. He manages to shoot down enemies (using his fingers) before the "plane" runs out of gas. Before Garfield can crash, he is, again, interrupted by Jon, who opens the door for Odie. Jon tells Garfield that he does not want any more interruptions before leaving. When Odie enters the box, Garfield puts him out of it. Odie continuously jumps in the box as Garfield shoves him out, with the latter eventually relenting.

Garfield imagines that they are both lost in a lifeboat. While Odie is ignorant of the fantasy, Garfield begins seeing food everywhere. He then prepares to eat Odie, after seeing the dog as a club sandwich. When Odie licks Garfield, the two tumble down the table with the box, ending the fantasy. Jon, again interrupted, angrily puts his pets outside. As he scoffs at their antics, he finds their cardboard box. Arbuckle soon begins his fantasy as "Sir Jon of Camelot", while Garfield and Odie start their fantasy in a trashcan, imagining that they are in a rocket.
