First Segment: Pest of a Guest
Pest of a Guest: During the winter, a greedy cat that appears to be on his death bed is welcomed into Jon's home, where Garfield fears that this intruder will ruin his life, and is therefore determined to get rid of him.
Second Segment: The Impractical Joker
The Impractical Joker: Booker brings Roy his mail, which is an insult joke book. Roy opens it and immediately starts insulting Booker. He then goes on to insult Lanolin, Wade and Sheldon. They all complain to Orson that Roy’s jokes are going too far, but Orson simply states that Roy’s jokes are harmless. He goes to try to reason with Roy anyway, who insults Orson so much that he fires him.
Roy glumly packs his bags, and everyone else tries to convince Orson to hire him back. Orson states that he’ll instead hire a new rooster, someone that is less annoying than Roy. Booker suggests that they find someone more annoying, which prompts Wade to call Fred Duck.
Orson hires Fred even though he really wanted a rooster, and Fred in turn continually insults Orson within minutes. Orson fires him and then tells everyone else to find Roy and rehire him. Everyone thinks Roy is long gone, but it turns out that Roy had actually been hiding in a nearby barrel. When he’s told that his job has been reinstated, he begins to apologize for the insulting things he said, but he can’t do it without laughing. He laughs a little more after each apology and at the end, he walks off laughing uncontrollably.
