Storyboard drawing from Garfield II.  The story took place in England and we thought it would be funny to have Garfield ride Winston while wearing a suit of armor.   The gag was him riding Winnie into the kitchen and emerging with a lance full of food. 

The actual shot in the movie was sans armor (for budget reasons) and didn't dolly with Garfield long enough to get the joke.  It underscores that merely moving a character through a shot doesn't make it entertaining.  If the character doesn't emerge and shine through, a shot is just "stuff happening".
