Synopsis

Garfield, Jon, and Odie gain a rich lifestyle after Garfield buys a winning lottery ticket.

Plot

Garfield is at the supermarket buying groceries. Noticing that he has some money left over, he decides to purchase a lottery ticket. He remarks that his chances of winning are not very good.

When Garfield gets home, Jon is angry with him for spending too much money on groceries. It is then time for Life Styles of the Fat and Furry, a television show about rich felines that Garfield enjoys. Later, he is watching the lottery drawing. Despite Jon saying that it is practically a waste of time, Garfield’s ticket wins the 10 million dollar prize.

Now instant millionaires, they buy new expensive fancy clothes. Jon buys several new cars so he has one for each day of the week. Then they buy a huge mansion with all of the rooms and luxuries they could want. On Lifestyles of the Fat and Furry, host Robin Leach shows the spoiled lives of many rich cats before getting to Garfield, whom he refers to as the richest of all. He has an endless parade of servants to bring him meals in bed, then goes outside to watch his servants play tennis.

Whilst being interviewed by Robin Leach, Jon says that he bought the winning ticket. Garfield objects and notes that he actually bought the ticket. When Leach announces this on the air, the host of the lottery suddenly appears, claiming that Garfield is too young to participate. The lottery announcer reads the numbers for the new winner- which happens to be Robin Leach. Leach runs off dancing, embracing his newfound wealth and stating that he can quit hosting the show.
