Turkey Trouble is the Thanksgiving-themed episode of The Garfield Show. It originally aired during the show's first season on Cartoon Network on November 16, 2009, along with the episode "Pup in the Pound".


Jon is all set to cook a turkey for Thanksgiving, but things change when he winds up getting a live turkey.


Jon wins a turkey in a raffle in which he plans to serve as dinner with Liz. However, when it is delivered, it turns out to be a live turkey and Jon must figure out what to do with it. The problem worsens when Garfield begins to dislike a live turkey around, and before long, Jon has the same feelings. Garfield captures it and they return it, and find that he will be slaughtered, so Garfield saves him, and the turkey joins them for the dinner with Liz, which ends up being vegetable lasagna.
