"Monday Misery" is an episode of "Garfield and Friends". It originally aired on November 19, 1988.

Episode recap

Garfield uses accordion music to wake Jon up one morning so that he can make blueberry pancakes for breakfast. In the middle of breakfast, Jon remarks that he’s sending a package to his Hawaiian pen pal; then he pulls a page off the calendar and reveals that it’s Monday. Garfield becomes horrified; then he takes Jon’s watch and programs it to ring as soon as Monday is over. He quickly goes to his bed to hide, but Jon says he’s being ridiculous and sends him outside to enjoy the day.
After it starts raining on him, he searches for a place to hide and comes across a shed that says "Beware of the pie in your face" on the door. He opens the door anyway and gets hit by the pie; then he goes to an open field for safety and soon a grand piano lands on him. He then walks home and sees Jon’s package on the porch. He decides that Hawaiian Mondays can’t be as bad as American Mondays, and he slips into the package.
After a bumpy flight, the package arrives in Hawaii, and a Hawaiian version of Garfield brings it into his hut. He opens the package and Garfield jumps out, and after looking at Jon’s watch, he is relieved that Monday is over. The Samoan cat then informs him that the Hawaiian time zone is several hours behind the American time zone, thus Monday is just beginning there. Garfield runs away in horror; then he comes across another hut that has "danger of pie" on the door. He opens the door and gets hit by the pie, and the Samoan cat explains that "danger of pie" is also another word for "pie in your face."

Notes

*The Hawaiian cat has a "Hut Sweet Hut" sign on his wall.

Goofs

*There is no address, zip code, or location on the stamp Jon puts on.
*The box is somewhat smaller than Garfield although there still are few centimeters of space left.

Quotes

*Garfield: The sun’s shining; the weather’s warm; what could possibly go wrong? ["Rain starts"] The minute I said that, I knew I was gonna find out.
*Narrator: See Jon Arbuckle in his most challenging role ever as.... Jon Arbuckle! (Jons frowns at the camera)
