Jon trips over Odie, and the dish of lasagna he was carrying ends up all over Pooky, Garfield’s favorite teddy bear. A quick spin in the washing machine gets him clean again, but now he has to hang outside on the washing line to dry. The next morning, Pooky is gone! Garfield is desperate, and looks for him everywhere. Jon tries to distract him by giving him new teddy bears, such as the Teddy 2000, a robot-bear which could never replace the real Pooky in Garfield's heart. In the meantime, Odie has tracked down Pooky: Hercules, the dog next door, has stolen him! He doesn’t want to give him back, but it’s not to be mean, it’s just because he doesn’t have many friends to play with. There's a very simple solution to that which will give Hercules a friend to play with.
