"The Big Talker" is an episode of "
Garfield and Friends". It originally aired on November 18, 1989.
Jon attempts to watch
televisionuntil Garfield gets Odie to pull the television close to "him" so that he doesn’t have to walk over to it. Jon begins to scold Garfield until they see Joe Palaver’s talk show, where he says that not only are cats lazy and good-for-nothing, but that he couldn’t find anyone to come onto his show to defend cats. Garfield pushes Jon out the doorto do just that, but Jon refuses because Joe is known as such a rude host.
Jon and Garfield soon end up at the talk show anyway, and Garfield cheers Jon on while the rest of the
audienceboos. After Garfield comes on stage and fails to prove his worth, Joe sends Jon and him out of the studio via a trap door. Jon decides to forget the whole thing ever happened, while Garfield is determined to get Joe to change his mindabout cats.
While Joe is getting his makeup done, Garfield overhears him talking to his artist and soon learns that he is superstitious. Garfield then
paints himself blackto pose as a black cat; then he walks past Joe. Joe then thinks he has bad luck, so he runs off to find his good luck charms. After he slips on a wet floor(caused by Garfield), he then goes to a chest and intends to pull out a rabbit's foot, only to pull out Garfield instead. He then tries to escape Garfield without luck, and when his next show starts, Joe apologizes about his earlier show and says good things about cats. His audience disagrees; then Garfield sends him out the trap door.
Outside the studio, Garfield approaches Joe again, who then runs away. Garfield then decides to wash off the black paint so people won’t be afraid of him, but before he does, a
pizzadelivery boy sees him and runs away, leaving the pizza behind. Garfield begins eatingthe pizza and then concludes that being a black cat has advantages.
