First Segment: Arrivaderci, Odie!

Garfield brakes a vase and blames Odie for it. Jon forgives Odie, and tells him that it was just a vase. Then he catches a cold and Jon takes him to the vet, much to Odie's dismay. Garfield sees Jon take Odie away in the car, and thinks he is getting rid of him for breaking his vase (which he did not do). Liz tells Jon that she has to keep Odie at the vet overnight. Garfield believes that Liz has adopted Odie, and soon discovers the pros and cons of his absence.

Second Segment: Gort Goes Good

After a large honey and apple crop at the farm, Orson thinks he hears Roy tell him that his brothers are there. Orson naturally gets afraid and hides, but then Roy clarifies that Orson’s brother is there: Gort. Gort tells Orson that he’s changed his evil ways and that he wants to move in at the farm.

Gort then informs Orson that Wart and Mort are planning to steal the apple crop. When Wart and Mort arrive (camouflaged by barrels), Gort leads Orson in disposing of them by rolling them away. Orson then agrees to let Gort stay, much to Wade’s chagrin.

After Gort attempts to do odd jobs around the farm, Orson then puts him in charge of guarding the barn where the apples are. Immediately after Orson gives him the key to the barn door, Wart and Mort tie the gang up, and then all three of them try to open the barn door. The key doesn’t work, and Orson states that he would never give them the real key, but after his brothers threaten him, he says the key is in a nearby tub of honey. After they search through the tub, a bear comes out of a cave and smells the honey; it then runs over to Orson’s brothers and then chases them away.

Bo then slips out of the ropes and then lets everyone loose; then he asks Orson where the real key is, and Orson says that the key is lost and that the door was unlocked. Wade tells him that his brother will never change, and Orson admits it, but says that a leopard can change its spots. After hearing the word "leopard", Wade gets scared and tries to hide. He opens the door and lets all the apples fall on the gang. And Orson says that there are some folks who never change, then an apple hits him on the head, and he just sighs.
