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

Synopsis

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

Plot

Garfield, as a tour guide, leads a group of tourists around a cat museum. The main attraction is a lake outside. He tells the crowd a legend (in verse) 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, he is determined to reach the island. After trying in vain to find an easy way, he eventually 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 noting that the lake was named Lake Stupid in memory of the prehistoric cat.
