Return of Power Pig is the second segment from the eighth episode of Garfield and Friends.


Sheldon gets frightened by a book Orson was about to read to him. This soon becomes a rumor about a monster on the farm.


Sheldon requests a scary story from Orson, claiming that none are too scary for him. Orson then starts reading Humpty Dumpty, which scares Sheldon off.

Booker tries to catch the worm by sitting on the hole the worm entered and staying on it. This endeavor is soon thwarted by a spiked helmet, which sends Booker flying through the air. Booker then lands by Sheldon, who gets startled as he's still nervous about the "scary story".

As he looks for a place to hide, he encounters Roy playing a late wake-up call, which scares him even more. Booker informs Roy that Sheldon was spooked by a scary story, "like about a monster or something", which piques Roy's interest.

Meanwhile, Bo and Lanolin are trying to grow seeds in a field. Lanolin yells at the seeds, which does nothing, while Bo talks to them in a more positive manner, which covers his half of the field with flowers, much to Lanolin's annoyance. Roy then arrives and asks Bo if he heard about "the monster" from Orson. Bo then tells Lanolin (who puts a scarecrow that resembles Roy in the field) about "a monster being around".

Meanwhile, Wade heads over to the pond, determined to conquer his fear of going into it. However, as he's about to step in, a fish bites his foot, causing him to bounce off in pain. He then runs into Lanolin, who tells him about the "monster". Terrified, Wade runs off to Orson to relay what he just heard.

Once Orson is convinced about a monster being around, he becomes Power Pig to deal with it. Wade eventually finds what appears to be it- the scarecrow. Orson then combats it, dragging Booker and Roy into the fight, while Wade and Lanolin follow them. Eventually they all find out who the "monster" really is, and Orson finds out how the story developed. Fed up, Orson goes "for a long walk in the country", which is also progressively misinterpreted by the others. Orson then sings a song about avoiding rumors.
