The episode begins with Jon, Garfield, and Odie having a cook-out. Following that, Jon cautions Garfield and Odie about going into the woods, which is said to be haunted. The two pets head into it anyway, with Garfield scoffing at the idea of haunted woods. Jon, dismayed, seeks to teach the two a lesson. Meanwhile, the cops are on the look out for an escaped convict, who is hiding in the same woods. Upon discovering the pets, the convict figures that people might be around as well. He then plots to scare them away to avoid having his cover blown.
   
  +
As Garfield and Odie continue their journey, they become spooked by an owl. Afterward, Garfield invites Odie to a "snack", where he throws out an entire picnic from his backpack (Odie thinks this is a mistake, to which Garfield says "That's how much food I always pack"). After eating, Garfield then notices Jon disguising himself as a ghost with a white sheet, realizing that he is trying to scare him and Odie. Jon soon blindly walks into a tree branch, knocking him out. The convict discovers Jon, then uses his idea (and sheet) to scare off the pets.
   
==Major Characters==
+
Garfield and Odie encounter the "ghost" (whom they still think is Jon, as opposed to the convict) and run away from him. Following a few entanglements with Garfield, the convict hides in a cave, which turns out to have a wolf inside. He runs off and chases after a police car, begging to be brought back to prison.

==Minor Characters==

Upon finding Jon ("You make a lousy ghost, fella", Garfield tells him), the three head home. In the car, Garfield (who is somehow driving) becomes concerned when he hears about the escaped convict on the radio making him wonder if the ghost he fought was the convict itself. Jon then assures him that "we have pretty boring lives. We never run into people like that" just before the end of the cartoon.

With the cartoon over, Garfield asks the audience how many mistakes they saw. He then states that there were three, and goes to show them by playing back the scenes with the supposed mistakes (none of which seem obvious). Odie tries to tell him of more mistakes. Garfield denies that there were any more, proclaiming "there were just those three", promising that they will "never make another mistake on this show again". He then tells Odie (who appears as Marmaduke) that it is 10 AM, thus "time for a midnight snack".

Overview

Mistakes Will Happen is an episode from the third season of Garfield and Friends.

SynopsisEdit

Garfield and Odie watch an episode of Garfield and Friends to look for any mistakes.

PlotEdit

Garfield interrupts the beginning of the cartoon to address- and dismiss- the notion that his show has any mistakes. He and Odie then proceed to watch an episode to compile any mistakes shown.

The episode begins with Jon, Garfield, and Odie having a cook-out. Following that, Jon cautions Garfield and Odie about going into the woods, which is said to be haunted. The two pets head into it anyway, with Garfield scoffing at the idea of haunted woods. Jon, dismayed, seeks to teach the two a lesson. Meanwhile, the cops are on the look out for an escaped convict, who is hiding in the same woods. Upon discovering the pets, the convict figures that people might be around as well. He then plots to scare them away to avoid having his cover blown.

As Garfield and Odie continue their journey, they become spooked by an owl. Afterward, Garfield invites Odie to a "snack", where he throws out an entire picnic from his backpack (Odie thinks this is a mistake, to which Garfield says "That's how much food I always pack"). After eating, Garfield then notices Jon disguising himself as a ghost with a white sheet, realizing that he is trying to scare him and Odie. Jon soon blindly walks into a tree branch, knocking him out. The convict discovers Jon, then uses his idea (and sheet) to scare off the pets.

Garfield and Odie encounter the "ghost" (whom they still think is Jon, as opposed to the convict) and run away from him. Following a few entanglements with Garfield, the convict hides in a cave, which turns out to have a wolf inside. He runs off and chases after a police car, begging to be brought back to prison.

Upon finding Jon ("You make a lousy ghost, fella", Garfield tells him), the three head home. In the car, Garfield (who is somehow driving) becomes concerned when he hears about the escaped convict on the radio making him wonder if the ghost he fought was the convict itself. Jon then assures him that "we have pretty boring lives. We never run into people like that" just before the end of the cartoon.

With the cartoon over, Garfield asks the audience how many mistakes they saw. He then states that there were three, and goes to show them by playing back the scenes with the supposed mistakes (none of which seem obvious). Odie tries to tell him of more mistakes. Garfield denies that there were any more, proclaiming "there were just those three", promising that they will "never make another mistake on this show again". He then tells Odie (who appears as Marmaduke) that it is 10 AM, thus "time for a midnight snack".
