Quotes

[first lines]
Garfield: [waking up] Good morning, Morning. Guess I'll get up, wake Jon, exercise... unless, of course, that floor is cold. I hate cold floors. I'm not getting out of bed if that floor is the slightest bit chilly.
[He places one finger on the floor ever so slightly and cringes]
Garfield: Yii! It's freezing! Too bad.
[sighs]
Garfield: ...I'm hungry.

Garfield's second TV movie.
23 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One year since "Here comes Garfield".

In "Garfield on the Town", Garfield has wrecked and cause his owner Jon enough trouble, that he decides to take him to the vet for punishment.

On the way Garfield ended up getting out of the car when Jon turn to the next corner. Now Garfield is free to roam the streets as he please.

One night, he decides to get something to eat from the dumpsters, only to find a punk cat who tells him he's invading his territory. Garfield shows him who's boss, but doesn't realize that the cat is part of a Gang of Cats called the Claws. Who soon become Garfield's new enemy.

Garfield makes a run for it, and ends up in an old building, which he meets face to face with another cat, who turns out to be his long lost mother. Garfield was over joy to see his own mom again.

In this TV movie, we learn a little bit of Garfield's family, and the day he was still a kitten. The animation is similar to the previous one and has some good voice acting. Hats down to Lorenzo Music.

With plenty of emotional moments, humor, and songs. This is another must for Garfield fans.
