A Halloween Tradition
9 September 2002 | by (Santa Clarita, CA) – See all my reviews

This is an all time classic. It just would not be Halloween without this TV special. Garfield and Odie, set off trick-or treating, but Garfield's greed for candy leaves them on a haunted island with an old pirate house. Great laughs! Great fun!
