A pet show has been organized in town, and the 1st prize is a huge dish of lasagna. Garfield’s mouth is already watering at the thought of it, and he decides to compete. Things get off to a bad start.
He flunks the sign up, and Nermal has already gotten started! How will he ever win now? Luckily, Garfield can always count on Odie, his faithful friend, to help him out. Jon signs him up and Garfield coaches him for every part of the contest: his first task is to neutralize the competition, the second is to beat Nermal in the nicest pet test.
But things get a bit more complicated when it comes to the test for the smartest pet!
