Another favorite Garfield TV special.
26 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Garfield goes on another travel adventure, yet again. This time it's Hollywood! After watching a TV program on pets becoming stars, Odie and Garfield want to audition to become stars. Jon Arbuckle likes the idea too. Only he gives them an act they don't approve on which is Elvis theme performance.

At the additions, the other acts were random and just plain bad to begin with. Luckily for them they're the only act that didn't suck at all. So they beaten the other pets won 1000 dollars and a trip to Hollywood to compete in the "Next pet star" contest. But will they achieve in becoming celebrities or come back home with the second rate prize? I like this one a lot because of the humor and the usual sarcasm from Garfield. The animation is great and the story is unique. And may I say an enjoyable TV movie for the Garfield fans.
