Overview

The Legend of the Lake is an episode from the second season of Garfield and Friends.

SynopsisEdit

Garfield tells the tale of a cave cat who went against the odds to get to his destination.

PlotEdit

Garfield, as a tour guide, leads a group of tourists around a cat museum. He shows attractions such as a man who tried to invent an inflatable scratching post and a cat who managed to eat an entire horse. He then brings them outside to the main attraction- a lake. He tells the crowd a legend ("in verse, no less") about the lake (despite lack of interest).

Far back in the past, prehistoric cats lived nearby the lake. Most of them did not mind having a low quality diet, but one cat (bearing a resemblance to Garfield) wanted more - namely lasagna growing on trees from another island. Unfortunately for him, there were two major obstacles: prehistoric dogs and a long distance between the islands.

Despite his friends (and girlfriend) trying to dissuade him, the orange male is determined to reach the island. He tries out various methods, including a boat, wings, and a catapult, but none of them are successful. Eventually, he simply swims to it, finally making it after seven hours. However, his excitement becomes deterred when he finds the dogs to be much larger than he thought. With that, he heads back to the lake and swims away, never to be seen again.

Garfield concludes the legend by revealing that the lake was named Lake Stupid in memory of the prehistoric cat.
