Garfield: The 12 Courses of Dinner

24 11 2010

How many of you used to (and still do) watch Garfield? Episodes, TV specials for the holidays, short ‘films’ – the joys of watching everyone’s fat cat and the situations he manages to get himself into.

Well, if you did (and/ or do) watch Garfield, you just might remember the episode where Garfield finds different ways to remind Jon that his birthday is coming up. Having ‘fled’ all the way to Mexico, Jon finally gives up when a native approaches him and tells him that “the birthday of your cat is tomorrow”. Jon relents to give Garfield anything he wants…

…and from there, we have a parody on the Christmas song “The 12 Days of Christmas” – forthwith, in my mind at least, (forever) known as The 12 Courses of Dinner. Garfield has a whole stage set up, kitted out with a choir and everything. Lesson: if you’re going to celebrate your birthday, you might as well do it properly.

Although I remember most of it from memory, I was able – to my sheer delight – to find a write out of the whole scene online. As it is about a month before Christmas, I thought this post would be fitting, as it ties in with my post of yesterday – not the psychotic conditions and whatnot, but rather giving a twist to and having fun with what is actually a Christmas song. This blog post goes out to my two sisters, who I know (and hope) will sing along while seeing the episode in their heads. Love you two! xxx
