This was the best Garfield special.
6 June 2002 | by (Pennsylavania, USA) – See all my reviews

I am a Garfield fan and this is my favorite special with him in it. Garfield and Odie go Trick-Or-Treating and end up on an adventure. It is very amusing and should be enjoyable for anyone to watch, even people who don't like Garfield.
