In this cartoon, Garfield gives the viewers the opportunity to choose what happens.
Garfield announces that this episode is going to be a little different. The viewers will get to vote and decide what they want to see happen in the following cartoon. Three choices will be given and the viewers will decide via applauding gestures. First, what should Jon wear?
A. His normal attire
B. A tuxedo
C. A pigeon suit
The viewers choose the pigeon suit, which was also Garfield's choice. Next, who should be featured in the cartoon?
B. Binky the Clown
Nermal tries to cheer as much as he can when he's mentioned, but Garfield tells him he's not allowed. The viewers choose Odie. Next, what should be the setting for the episode?
A. The living room
B. The backyard
C. Whatever's lying backstage
The viewers choose whatever's lying backstage, leaving for a surprise as to where it will take place. The surprise setting is a national park. Garfield says that's all the choices for now, and warns the viewers if they don't like the cartoon, they have no one to blame but themselves.
While Jon is cooking burgers in his pigeon suit, Odie wants to play fetch with Garfield. This leads to the next poll. What should Garfield do?
A. Throw the stick so Odie can fetch it
B. End his nap and frolic with Odie
C. Slingshot Odie to the other side of the river
The viewers choose to slingshot Odie, much to Garfield's delight and Odie's dismay. Garfield tells him not to blame the viewers and slingshots him to the other side as told. Jon obviously scolds Garfield and tells him he won't feed him again...
A. For the rest of the day
B. For a whole week
C. Until the next time Halley's Comet passes the galaxy
...until the next time Halley's Comet passes the galaxy. With that in mind, Garfield heads off to go and look for where Odie may have landed, but he can't find him anywhere. What should he do?
A. Stop looking and take a nap
B. Go back to Jon and eat burgers
C. Keep looking for Odie until he finds him
The viewers want Garfield to keep looking much to his reluctance and he finds him running into a cave where he's gonna run into somebody. Who will Odie meet?
A. The Buddy Bears
B. Cactus Jake
C. A buggy-eyed razor-beaked Fnark
The viewers say Odie should run into the Fnark. Upon seeing the sight of the beast, what should Odie do?
A. Run in terror
B. Run in terror
C. Run in terror
The option is pretty much the same one with the same high level reaction, so Odie runs in terror toward Garfield. Garfield then asks if Odie should sacrifice himself to save Garfield (without a poll showing up) and agrees and tosses Odie at the Fnark. The cat and dog run away from the beast and Garfield announces the final poll for the cartoon. What should they do?
A. Hail a taxi out of there
B. Get saved by a park ranger
C. Fight the Fnark themselves
The viewers want them to fight it themselves, but seeing how they'd be no match for it, they decide to go with option A and hail a taxi instead. Garfield tells them if they want the vote to count, they should get their own show as he and Odie ride the cab away from the Fnark.
- With the exception of Odie's reaction to the Fnark being to run in terror for every option, all the choices made in each poll were choice C.
- The Fnark was first mentioned in All Things Fat and Small.
