"Box o’ Fun "is an episode of "Garfield and Friends". It originally aired on September 24, 1988.

Episode recap

Jon comes into the house with a box full of books that he needs for studying in his night school classes. He puts the box down on a counter where Garfield is resting; then he takes books out of the box and walks off toward his room while telling Garfield that he wants no interruptions while he is studying.
Garfield notices that Jon left the box behind; he climbs into it and imagines that he is auto racing. Just before the end of the race, Jon interrupts him by saying that one of his books is missing (he finds it next to the box after Garfield had climbed out). After he walks off again, Garfield climbs back into the box and imagines that he is in a fighter plane. The plane eventually gets shot down, and as Garfield careens down to his doom, he is interrupted again when Jon comes to open the front door for a whining Odie.
Garfield climbs out of the box again before Jon once again warns him about interruptions. Garfield then discovers that Odie has climbed into the box, and he repeatedly pushes him out, but Odie keeps climbing back in. Finally, Garfield gives up just before he imagines the two of them stranded in a lifeboat in the middle of the ocean (although Odie still thinks they’re in the living room). Garfield is so hungry that he imagines Odie as a giant hero sandwich, and after he picks up the “sandwich” to eat it, Odie licks him with so much force that he knocks the box (with them in it) onto the floor.
Jon kicks them out of the house because of all the noise they are making. He then comments how ridiculous it is to play pretend with a box, but he soon imagines himself as a knight in Camelot. Garfield and Odie watch him but then they climb into a trashcan. They imagine it is a rocket ship and then they blast off into space.
