File:The Title Card of The Floyd Story.jpg

The Floyd Story is an episode from the sixth season of Garfield and Friends.


Floyd's wife demands that he ask Garfield for more airtime. Meanwhile, when Jon's pushy Aunt Prunella visits, Garfield attempts to get rid of her.


In the very beginning of the episode, Garfield is being chased by a bulldog. Floyd ends the pursuit by leading Garfield to a simple trap prepared from a tree branch - once Garfield crosses the safety zone, Floyd releases the twig directly at the running dog, causing the canine to fly in the air and land in a puddle of mud. While Garfield is thanking Floyd for the rescue, it turns out the whole scene was recorded on VHS tape.

April uses this video to convince Floyd, that he deserves more airtime in the cartoon. The failed attempt at soft persuasion causes her to throw Floyd out of their mouse hole, just when Jon is preparing himself for his upcoming guest.



  • Floyd appears with two different tones of his fur color - in the tape, where he saved Garfield from a bulldog, his fur is light gray, while in the following scenes he's depicted with darker fur tone.
  • April also changes fur color - inside her home her fur has a darker tone of gray, while throwing Floyd out of their mouse hole, her fur seems to be a visibly lighter tone of gray.
