The Garfield Workout is an episode from the third season of Garfield and Friends.


Garfield hosts his own exercise program, contrasting his exercises with a traditional regimen.


Garfield announces that it is time to exercise- namely for the viewers, while he goes away to rest. After a little disclaimer, he gets up and starts teaching the viewers how to get their body into the shape his is in.

Garfield's regiment consists of doing the exact opposite of what real exercise is all about. While working out is to get one's body in good shape and stay healthy, Garfield's regimen requires eating tons of food and sleeping many hours. He gives examples of how to tell one is overweight with exaggerated visual aids.

Garfield shows how to sit in food with Nermal reluctantly showing examples. He then covers telling jokes, which result in food tossed at the performer. Odie returns from having exercised so much that he is exhausted; Garfield shows just how it can be to perform a traditional workout. Finally, he goes to take a nap.

Jon has been watching the program and shows him how Garfield really exercises. He takes a lasagna out of the oven and the aroma reaches Garfield's nose, causing him to run home and start wolfing down the lasagna, with Jon commenting, "Now that's the Garfield workout!"
