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 »

The thinnest Garfield special
22 February 2005 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

I was never too keen on Garfield in Paradise, there is just something about it that doesn't gel. Garfield TV specials are always great but there's a couple of annoying things in this one.

Jon has taken Garfield (and a stowaway Odie) to Hawaii for a vacation, staying in a lousy hotel after a third class plane ride. Everything about their trip reeks of sleaze. Soon they happen upon a native village (containing a very irritating, gibberish-talking short guy showing asscrack that belongs in something like The Simpons) and have to drive their 1957 vintage rentacar into a volcano to plug the hole.

There's not much more to it than that I'm afraid. Though seeing as how I'm trying to plan a sunny beach holiday it did kinda put me off booking a cheap hotel and flight.
