Quotes

Garfield: Odie's so stupid he'd have to stand on a chair to raise his I.Q. He's ugly, too. It would take two of him to get any uglier. He's so ugly, he wouldn't have to wear a mask to go trick or treating on Halloween.

One of the best Halloween cartoons
17 December 2016 | by dmraciSee all my reviews

This one I remember back, way back. It's a well written, well animated, excellently voiced Halloween special. Adults can actually watch it for the plot. It has a wonderful mood to it.

Not like the junk we see today, like the stuff that gets computer cranked out.

Unfortunately it never seems to get back on TV. This and Spongebob's Halloween where he dresses up like the Flying Dutchman and Patrick tries to make him scary are classics.

Im not sure if it might scare very young children, it is just good fun. Some kids just more sensitive to these things. In that case you might want to seek out the book, Garfield's Halloween Adventure (Formerly Titled Garfield in Disguise) and read it to them first.

This is one case where the movie is better then the book.
