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.

"We bad! We the boss!"
10 September 2016 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I had completely forgotten this TV special from my childhood until coming across it online. This one has Garfield stranded in the city, where he's accosted by a gang of tough street cats named The Claws. Running for his nine lives, Garfield is rescued by a female cat who turns out to be his mother. From there we get some touching moments, which the Garfield specials I've seen were always good at, and a life lesson or two. I especially like how one particular plot point doesn't go the way you might expect. It's a good cartoon with nice simplistic animation, fun songs (The Claws' theme is a classic), and a story with humor and heart. Definitely worth a look, even if you're not an avid Garfield fan.
