Garfield is a 2004 video game, released on the PC and Playstation 2.
Jon is angry at Garfield for eating Jon's lasagna, scratching his favorite chair and shredding his favorite clothes. Jon tells Garfield he will put him on a diet if he misbehaves again. Jon leaves the house and Garfield falls asleep. When he wakes up, he sees Odie making a mess of the house. Garfield thinks about how he is going to clean the mess when he sees Odie licking the vacuum cleaner, claiming Odie is a genius.

The player has 8 hours to complete the task by cleaning the house and putting everything in the right place before Jon's arrival. If the player has not cleaned the house in time, Garfield will be put on a diet before losing game is announced.
