Garfield's debut in animation.
21 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In 1978, Garfield appeared in numerous comic strips throughout the nation.

4 years later, the comic strips became a favorite to millions of people. So Garfield get's his own animation form in this old TV special.

Made 24 years ago, and is still a piece of history for the orange cat himself.

The story is about Garfield going through the same routine he normally goes through every morning. He and his so called pal Odie the Dog decide to mess around with a neighbor next door, who eventually called the pound to catch them. Garfield escapes but Odie let himself get caught. Garfield didn't care much if Odie is sent to the pound, cause he hates dogs and plays tricks on Odie a lot.

Garfield feels like he's the household pet of the house for a change, but the more he enjoys himself the more he starts to regret that it was his fault for Odie to end up at the pound. So he decides to go to town to save the dog he cares about deep down.

The animation is very dated, but very well made for it's time. The characters look similar to their comic appearances. Course Garfield's looks change within the years. This cartoon has some humor and great acting from the original and late voice of Lorenzo Music as Garfield.

But a highly appreciated TV special for all Garfield fans.
