Garfield Gets a Life is the thirteenth and final Garfield television special.

Plot

Jon recognizes that he needs a life, as an escape from his boring existence as the guy who arranges his sock drawer. Garfield finds a book called "How To Make Friends And Fool The Rest". Jon tries to find some girls around town, but none of them are impressed, and they all find him to be a dweeb. One night, he sees an ad on TV for "Lorenzo's School for the Personality Impaired" and decides to go there.

The class teaches people how to make a good impression, and he meets a lady named Mona (her full name is "Mona Lisa") and starts a friendship with her without using any of the techniques they learned in class. Garfield starts feeling left out and jealous of Jon's friendship with Mona. Garfield then starts to get scared, because Jon and Mona's friendship could easily lead to dating, which in turn could easily lead to them getting married. And if Jon and Mona get married, they could easily end up having children, which Garfield would hate, because he assumes that the kid (or kids) would torture him.

Garfield tries to warn Jon to stop before he multiplies, but only annoys him. Mona scratches Garfield's back, but then she breaks into a sneezing fit and reveals to Jon that she's allergic to cats (although she does like Garfield). Jon asks Mona if she can take a medication (which Mona has previously tried without success).

Realizing that a relationship between them might not work out due to Mona's allergy to cats, Jon decides to give her a ride home-and Garfield chaperones them by sticking onto the back window of Jon's car with suction cups.
