Garfield lives on.
30 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This Garfield TV movie is pretty much the most unique of it's kind.

The story begins when the Creator(who portrays as God) creates a cat also known as Garfield. And gives him 9 lives to create an interesting story.

Then we get to see Garfield intro each of his 9 lives. Each one is different from another. A lot of them were done in different animation to give it a different taste.

Pretty much Life #8 is similar to the common Garfield cartoons.

I consider this one a Garfield of a different color.

The idea of 9 different stories in one TV movie is really cool in my opinion. A must see for the Garfield fans.
