Flop Goes the Weasel is an episode from the second season of Garfield and Friends.


After Wade has an accidental run-in with the Weasel, the other animals believe he foiled his plan and consider him a hero.


A weasel is lurking around on the farm. Booker has set a new worm trap and baited it with a burger. When it goes off, Odie is revealed to be the one inside it. Booker tells him that he is in the wrong cartoon and he leaves. Orson comes by and tells the birds that the weasel's around and they go and warn everyone.

Upon hearing of the weasel's whereabouts, Wade adds it to his list of fears and runs away in a panic, only to bump into the weasel, foiling his plan. While Roy takes the Weasel off the farm, Orson and the chicks declare Wade a hero, and he decides to play along with it and express his newly found heroism in a song, which may be worse than when he was a coward as Orson believes.

Roy hears about Wade's action and scoffs at the notion of him being a hero. When Booker and Sheldon spot the weasel lurking around again, they tell Wade about it, and he starts to go into a fright. He admits that he did not really catch the weasel last time and runs away.

Wade hides in a crate that the weasel is hiding in as well to avoid detection, and this causes them to crash into the side of the barn and the others congratulate Wade for another heroic endeavor. Wade confesses that he is no hero. When the weasel comes to and sees Wade, he runs away. The others still believe Wade is a hero, if only a cowardly one.
