Overview

Garfield Goes Hawaiian is the third segment from the first episode of Garfield and Friends.

SynopsisEdit

Garfield catches a disease called the Hawaiian Cat Flu; every time someone mentions Hawaii or anything from Hawaii, he dances the hula.

PlotEdit

Jon gets a call from Liz, who informs him of a disease called the "Hawaiian Cat Flu." Jon is certain that Garfield will avoid it, only to see Garfield dancing the hula. At the vet, Liz gives Jon medicine to cure Garfield and tells him not to mention Hawaii or anything from it, since it causes Garfield to dance. Garfield refuses to take the medicine, even as he continues dancing after hearing anything that has to do with Hawaii.

Jon soon finds opportunity for it when he discovers Silly Animal Stunts, a talent show for pets. At the audition, Garfield's "talent" makes the cut. Just before they leave for the show, Garfield finally decides to take the medicine and after tasting it, he is disgusted. When Jon and Garfield get on stage, Jon brings up Hawaii when he describes what Garfield does. Not knowing that Garfield has taken the medicine, Jon becomes nervous when he notices Garfield not dancing, nor displaying any interest in doing so. Jon tries in vain to make Garfield dance by mentioning numerous Hawaiian topics. Eventually, he does the hula himself, which wins him the $1,000 prize.

Back home, Jon tells Liz that Garfield seems to be cured of the Hawaiian Cat Flu. Liz then notes that there is now a similar disease called the "Alaskan Cat Flu." When Jon wonders what the symptoms are, he sees Garfield in Alaskan attire and driving a dog sled carried by Odie.
