Trial and Error is an episode from the fourth season of Garfield and Friends.


Odie is put on trial for stealing Garfield's piece of pie.


Jon is in a rush and gives Garfield a piece of blueberry pie, but there's no ice cream on it like Garfield thought. As he goes to get the ice cream, two mice take the plate and proceed to eat it. When Garfield finds that his pie is gone, he accuses Pooky of taking it. The mice then trick Odie into getting some blueberry juice onto his tongue, leaving Garfield to accuse Odie of eating it. Odie demands a trial to declare he didn't do it.

At the trial, Floyd is acting as judge while his fellow mice are the jury. Garfield calls his first witness: Nermal (who the mice cheer for). Garfield asks Nermal a bunch of questions that don't relate to the trial itself and Nermal breaks down saying he is guilty for whatever it is he has been accused of and leaves. Nermal goes into the kitchen and overhears the mice who stole Garfield's pie talking about how they pulled it off.

Garfield calls Pooky to the stand and Pooky, being an inanimate object, has nothing to say. Nermal tells Odie who really took the pie, getting the dog riled up to chase the mice. He finds them and chases them throughout the kitchen. Just as it seems his efforts are futile and Garfield is ready to have him sentenced, the two mice that stole Garfield appear. Floyd knows them as Elmo and Ferd and finds their tongues are coated with blueberry juice; this leads Garfield to realize the mistake he made.

Odie is free to go and Elmo and Ferd are sentenced to five days in an empty coffee can. Garfield apologizes to Odie, but plans to take it back after Odie licks him.
