How to Drive Humans Crazy is the 98th episode of Garfield and Friends.
Garfield teaches every kitten in the neighborhood on how to drive humans bonkers.
Kittens all over the neighborhood are meeting in an auditorium due to a mail invitation sent to them:
"When every kitten reaches four weeks of age, we invite them here (the auditorium) for orientation lessons on how to drive humans out of their minds"
The cat announcer gets everyone settled in and introduces Garfield to teach today's lecture. He then shows them three main rules via video footage.
The first rule is Never Claw what they want you to Claw: Jon shows Garfield his new scratching post complete with all kinds of accessories. Jon shows it to him in hoping Garfield would stop clawing the furniture but Garfield claws at a new sofa anyway much to Jon's dismay.
The second rule is If it's on sale, we don't eat it: Jon just got tons of cat food from the market but no matter how many cat foods Jon shows Garfield, he refuses to eat any of them. He then reveals that he spent $93 on cat food and asks the cat what will he eat. Going through the receipt, Garfield finds a Filet Mignon and eats that for dinner with Jon eating one of the cat foods as a replacement.
Garfield then comments that the third rule may take some time to learn but it's the most important. The third rule is We sleep whenever we want to, they sleep whenever we want to: Jon is about to go to bed and is about to put the cat out but Garfield refuses and Jon goes to bed. Garfield then comments to wait at the right time to wake them up. Jon meanwhile is dreaming about a date he's having when Garfield wakes him up at 3:30 AM. He says he wants to go out but changes his mind at the last minute. From there on Garfield ask Jon to take him out but refuses at the last minute.
One of the kittens ask what they should do if the humans forced them to go out and Garfield answers it with the next part. Once again Garfield refuses to go out at the last minute but Jon puts him out anyway so he could get some sleep. Once he's out Garfield uses a stereo system and some loud instruments to abruptly wake Jon in the house. When Garfield sees Jon coming out of the house to stop the noise, he accidentally bumps into the stereo system and drums and wakes some of the neighbors. Thinking that Jon caused the noise, the neighbors chase Jon as Garfield watches.
With that Garfield concludes the lecture and says next week they'll learn how to torment small dogs. On the way home, Garfield overhears two neighbors talking about their cats driving them nuts and ponder that someone's teaching them this way. The two dismiss that thought as Garfield silently agrees.
