Garfield puts on a variety show out on the backyard fence.
One night in the Arbuckle backyard, the neighborhood pets watch Garfield's "Garbage Can and Tin Pan Alley Revue". Garfield and Floyd start the show off with a song-and-dance number, much to the irritation of Jon as the noise prevents him from sleeping. Nermal cuts into the act to sing about how cute he is. Nermal is eventually given the hook to everybody's applause, and Garfield continues his number.
Odie then pops up, asking to do an act of his own, to which Garfield obliges. He has a record player playing "Beautiful Dreamer", to which he lip-syncs. Although Garfield sabotages the act by messing with the record's speed, Odie manages to keep up with the song perfectly. Garfield's next act is a magic show, "The Great Linguini", in which he makes food items "disappear" behind his magic curtain. When Nermal tries to interrupt again, Garfield changes his act a bit by putting Nermal in a box that ends up on the next mail truck to Abu Dhabi.
No longer able to stand the noise, Jon comes out and demands that Garfield be quiet so he can sleep. A police officer arrives and arrests Jon for disturbing the peace. Jon argues that the animals are responsible, only for them to play dumb, leaving Jon to get dragged off. With the intermission over, Garfield brings back Odie and Floyd (and Nermal, having escaped the mail truck) for a big finale.
