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.
