Trivia

The voice of the unscrupulous hotel clerk is provided by Frank Nelson, who played a similar, smarmy character on Jack Benny's radio and TV show. The clerk greets Jon Arbuckle with Nelson's signature line from the show, "Yeeeeeeeeeeesss?" When Jon asks for the hotel's cheapest room, the clerk says, "Oh, that would be the Jack Benny Suite."

Goofs

When we first see Pigeon, he's talking in a hippie type voice, later when we see him investigating the volcano wanting the car, he's talking in a gruff voice. See more »

Great summer classic
9 August 2001 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

"Garfield" is one of the classic comic strips of all time, and it spawned several classic TV series and specials. This is one of them.

Okay, the idea of taking the usual gang of people and sending them to Hawaii for some fun in the sun is not a new idea for sequels. Not even the idea of having the gang get mixed up with a forgotten tribe of polynesians who worship the volcano god and want to toss people into the pit of lava as a sacrifice is new. Having the lost tribe of Polynesians be a bunch of neo-1950's beatniks and surfer dudes is possibly a new spin on the old premise, however, and the humor is up to the usual Garfield standards.

Yes, this is a bunch of corporate-created commercial fluff, but for what it is, it's still pretty darn funny.
