In Garfield Live!, that cat is shocked to discover that he has woken up the morning of his birthday only to find out that Jon and Odie have completely forgotten about his favorite holiday. Unbeknownst to Garfield, Jon and Odie are hard at work planning the festivities of his surprise birthday party. After lamenting that no one loves him, he decides to take matters into his own hands and plan his own party. Of course, wise-cracking, nap-taking Garfield doesn't plan on doing all, or any of the work, so he conjures up a Fairy Catmother in his dreams and she grants him his wish for a Personal Assistant. Unseen by Jon, Garfield's Personal Assistant wreaks havoc on the household. The show culminates with both surprise parties colliding in this zany cat-astrophe to which the audience is invited to join in the singing and dancing while Garfield serves himself a giant Lasagna Birthday Cake.
