Jack II - The Rest of the Story is an episode from the fifth season of Garfield and Friends.


Unsatisfied with Orson telling the story of "Jack and the Beanstalk" in a traditional manner, Booker, Sheldon, Wade, and Roy devise a sequel to tie loose ends.


Orson is in the middle of reading Jack and the Beanstalk to Booker and Sheldon before going to bed. At the same time Wade and Roy come in unintentionally interrupting him and almost making him lose his place.

In the story Jack has just reached the giant's castle to get the goose that lays golden eggs (which Roy mentions is pretty painful). Just then the castle rumbles and Jack realizes the giant is coming. He then grabs the gooses and leaves the castle with the giant trailing behind him as they climb down the beanstalk. Once on the ground, Jack grabs an ax from his house and starts cutting the beanstalk all while the giant is still climbing down. Eventually he manages to successfully cut the beanstalk down causing the giant to fall to his death. With the giant gone and the goose in hand, Jack and his mother are able to live happily ever after.

When the story is finished, Booker asks what happens next. Orson replies that's the end but the others are dissatisfied with the way it ended. He then goes to bed with Booker lamenting about all the plot holes in the story. Just then, Roy gets an idea to write the second half of the story and Wade, Booker, and Sheldon agree to help. For a while, the group reaches a writer's block but then Roy has a plot in mind and starts writing on the typewriter. Once they are done, the four head to Orson's barn (whom was already fast asleep) and tell the other half of the story with each taking turns narrating it.

Moments after the first ending of the story, a police officer named Stone arrives at Jack's house and informs him about the dead giant. Stone says that since the giant landed on their property Jack and his mother will have to bury the giant and arrange a funeral for him which would cost a fortune. To add to the problem, their goose is unable to lay more golden eggs. As Stone is driving, the ground starts to rumble revealing the giant is not dead after all and charges Jack with felonies of attempted murder and chopping beanstalks off season. The giant meanwhile heads home and converts his castle into a mini mall.

With their half done, Roy asks Orson what did he think, only to find him fast asleep. Upon leaving Roy remarks Orson will never know the ending now as Wade, Booker, and Sheldon asks him about the plot holes in their half of the story.
