A Halloween that Garfield will never forget.
7 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After a wake up call from Blinky the Clown on the TV. Garfield learns that today was Halloween, one of the few Holidays that he gives a care about. Just because he gets free candy.

He dresses up as a pirate and brought Oddie along as his first mate because he wants twice as much candy to eat. It was quite a night for Garfield. And he was getting into the Pirate gig a lot.

But things become wiry when they got on a boat to a distant island when things become slightly creepy.

This is one of the few Garfield Holiday specials ever made. The animation improves slightly in this one. Specially when this was made 20 years ago. And it keeps itself entertaining for a good half an hour.

It has the same running gags and open minded jokes from Garfield like in the other TV specials. A lot of the Garfield fans and Halloween fans consider this one a classic.
