This Cannot Be Garfield
23 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Garfield is a philosophical, furry fat man originally intended by our disgruntled, coffee-slugging adults. But this is not Garfield. This is a fantasy show with a Garfield lookalike. It's watered down, badly animated, and contains horrible new characters such as Shecky, Sheila, Billy Bear, and that intolerable Bonita.

Garfield is supposed to take place in a real-life setting in Muncie. This is a fake world with pseudo-physical properties that is home to the comic strip. It is an alternate reality to our own. I always preferred to think that Garfield lived right across my state border, not in a parallel universe.

I don't know how Jim Davis ever allowed it (and its sequels) to ever come into production. This would be the worst Garfield film of all, if not for the Fun Fest. Awful. But then, that gives insight to my mind as well: I watched them, and I'm planning to see the Pet Force, just for the heck of it. Do we humans ever learn? I'm giving this one 2 stars, because I love Garfield. I don't think I can be that lenient on Fun Fest, though. Even my 8-year-old Garfield-loving sister couldn't stand this stuff. Give me "Babes and Bullets" any day, and leave "Gets Real" for your younger siblings and children.
