Synopsis

Lucky Charm 2

After finding a pot of gold, a leprechaun gives Garfield good luck, which doesn't work out for him.

Plot

Jon, Garfield and Odie are sitting on a park bench in the park since it is raining despite the weather report saying that it said there would be clear skies. Eventually the rain stops and Jon delighted, goes out fishing. Garfield before taking a nap sees a rainbow and tells Odie that the rainbow will lead to a pot of gold to which Odie decides to go look for. Garfield thinks he'll never find it and then goes to sleep.

After a while, Odie gets tired and is about to give up when he sees the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. He takes it but unknown to him, the pot belongs to a leprechaun named Paddy starts to look for it. Eventually Odie brings it back and Garfield is not keen on throwing the pot so Odie can fetch it. Eventually he realizes it is a pot of gold and is delighted but quickly gives it back to Odie when Paddy confronts them. After he begs the two to give it back, he offers Garfield all the good luck he can have as a reward. The cat quickly agrees and the leprechaun casts a good luck spell on Garfield.

At the lake, Jon is lamenting that he's not catching anything due to the rain driving the fish away. He tells Garfield to reel the line in while he starts the car, and when Garfield does, he reels in a super huge fish. Delighted, Jon tells Garfield he's so lucky and starts barbecuing the fish. As Garfield recovers he does not believe he has good luck and tell Odie he needs tarter sauce to eat that fish. Right then a plane overhead drops two barrels of tarter sauce right on him.

In the city, Garfield decides to test his new good luck by wishing for ice cream and later chocolate sauce, both of which fall right on him from passing trucks. While watching TV, Garfield and Odie see a commercial for the Mega Gazillion lottery and the cat wants to turn the luck into money. Right then a lottery ticket blows his way and it's the winning ticket.

A while later Garfield has purchased a huge mansion where most of the rooms contain food with Jon as his new butler. By then the doorbell rings and Garfield decides to answer it. He sees two cats claiming to be Garfield's relatives to which Garfield himself says they're not his family. One of them says they came when they heard about his win and they along with a whole group of cats decide to move in much to Garfield's horror. After slamming the front door, he hears the back door doorbell where he sees all kinds of business men who want to invest his money in their businesses.

After barricading the back door, Garfield goes out the side window to escape, but there he sees Bernard Scambury who is here to collect taxes from his money. A chase through the city eventually leads Garfield to trap Scambury in the sewer but he still has to run from the relatives and the business men. Desperate, Garfield tries various ways to get back luck; from walking under a ladder, to breaking a mirror, even painting Nermal black so he can cross his path. However none of these tactics work out.

Finally Garfield tells Odie where did he find the pot of gold so he can get rid of the good luck and Odie directs him. Once there, Paddy agrees to get ride of the good luck, on the condition that he takes the gazillion dollars. Garfield wastes no time to get rid of it and Paddy casts a spell that gets rid of the good luck. Delighted Garfield and Odie decide to head home for some lasagnas while Paddy enjoys his new wealth. However he ends up dealing with Scambury who's here to collect taxes much to the leprechaun's horror.
