A true GEM for any Garfield Fan!
14 November 1998 | by (Vermont) – See all my reviews

A Jim Davis Masterpice in MHO. I loved the whole concept of it- The Pet Search show, Jon's "talent" and the finale were wonderful! Plus you have to love those "Lemon Chickens" and the Garbonzo Brothers:) Truly the highlight though would have to be that amazing dance number between Garfield and Odie, who knew either of them were that agile? And that "Meow" Song was a treat. This Special is a MUST for Garfield fans or anybody up for a pre-comedy video night.
