** Also mice are one of the few things that Garfield ''won't'' eat (along with "most healthy foods, anchovies on pizza, Jon's meatloaf, chicken salad sandwiches and raisins"). According to Lucky, it's "because they're his friends and they don't taste like lasagna". While other cats have no problem with eating mice, in a Wile.E.Coyote fashion we never see them catch any.

** In ''Curse of the Weredog'', Jon refuses to believe Garfield when Odie goes all Hulk and wrecks the house, and takes away Garfield's lasagna. Only when Jon hears Professor Bonkers' diagnosis on the news (and when he takes a closer look at the damage Odie did on the furniture) does he apologize to Garfield and they go to the Professor for a solution.

* "EarnYourHappyEnding: In "Stealing Home" Garfield and Odie have their home forcefully stolen by an envious stray cat called Bruno while Jon's out. They trick Bruno into taking his old trashcan home back by convincing him that it's much BiggerOnTheInside, which gets him whisked away by trash collectors. Unfortunately Jon comes back early and blames the mess Bruno made, on Garfield and Odie which means they have to go live in another trashcan again. Which turns out leads to a secret luxury lounge where all their friends are throwing a party.

* KarmaHoudini: Played straight by Nermal in "King Nermal."([[ButtMonkey if only one]]). Garfield isn't as lucky in this series, however, partly due to Jon being quick to suspect him -- and he's often right.

** When Garfield takes control of the pet talent show, and is making Nermal do insanely impossible tasks within the space of a few seconds, one of the tasks is [[WesternAnimation/GarfieldAndFriends finding the Klopman Diamond]]

* NeverSayDie: Unlike WesternAnimation/GarfieldAndFriends, this show is a lot more tame in comparison - therefore this trope is always played straight.

* PandaingToTheAudience: Garfield, Odie, and Nermal befriend a pair of pandas (with Australian accents, ironically) in the 4-part episode "Little Trouble in Big China". They not only help out in transportation but also rescue them from 2 antagonistic Siamese cats (but not by [[WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda doing kung fu]] because that would be ridiculous for pandas).

* PlotHole: "The Golden Lasagna Awards" Garfield hosts an award show that's all about giving himself awards and inflating his ego. Nermal gets sick of this and puts a hit out on Garfield, only telling the thugs that the award show is rigged so one cat wins all the awards. When the thugs barge in looking threatening as Garfield is about to announce another winner, he decides to say the winner is Nermal instead, making the thugs assume Nermal is the one rigging the contest and attacking him, even though Garfield didn't hear their conversation and didn't know why the thugs were there.
