This sometimes very funny and sometimes highly emotional anthology follows Garfield's nine lives throughout history, from his first life as a prehistoric cat-Neanderthal to his ninth life as an astronaut in a jam.
Garfield has one spooktacular adventure on the Eve of All Saints. He fashions himself a pirate costume then takes Odie out trick-or-treating to ensure extra candy. But when attempting to cross a river on a boat, Garfield and Odie end up at a haunted house. Horror and hilarity ensue.Written by
While Garfield is flipping TV channels trying to find Binky the Clown in the opening scene, one of the channels features Orson Pig from U.S. Acres for a brief second. See more »
In the very last scene as Garfield turns the TV off and rolls over with his bag of candy to go to sleep, he puts his arm around his teddy bear. As soon as he does so, his arm turns brown, the same color as the teddy bear. See more »
The old man was right, Odie. This was the worst night of my life. I've had nightmares that looked like birthday parties compared to tonight.
[Odie points to their boat, with their candy still in it]
Well, looky here! It do be me candy! Arrr... I guess this story do have a happy ending after all, matey. Let's be shovin' off for home now.

Originally, this TV special was titled "Garfield in Disguise" when first aired, however, it was later re-titled "Garfield's Halloween Adventure" (with a new title card) for subsequent re-airings. See more »
There have been things loved as a child watched much later, and the question "what made me like this when younger?" crops up in my mind. That is not the case at all with Garfield, 'Garfield and Friends' and his special. If anything they are even better now, coming from a young adult but, as pathetic as this sounds, who is a child at heart. Will always like Garfield, he is a very funny and lovable character.
Of the specials, 'Garfield in Disguise', one of the quintessential Halloween specials, is one of my two favourites. The other being 'A Garfield Christmas Special', which there is a marginal preference for. Again not reviewed at the right time for the occasion being depicted but for me there has never been a right time to review anything (sometimes even to watch it). Other than it being so entertaining, inventively spooky and charming, part of 'Garfield in Disguise's' appeal is that Halloween is alongside Christmas one of my favourite times of the year.
So many great merits with 'Garfield in Disguise' and actually cannot think of anything to criticise it for. The animation is still as colourful as remembered with the smooth drawing, far from sparse backgrounds and attention to detail holding up really well. The songs also are extremely catchy
Entertainment value, as to be expected, is non-stop, with more hilarious gags than one can count and the wry and witty writing shines like the brightest of stars. Of the specials, 'Garfield in Disguise' is a strong contender for the funniest. Also always have loved the rousing action and the inventive and sometimes spooky (but never too scary) Halloween touches embedded throughout. At the same time, the charm and heart is also here while not being sentimental.
Garfield is as hilarious and lovable as ever and can never get enough of Odie, who is so cute while the supporting characters are great fun. Voice acting is on point, nobody portrayed Garfield better than Lorenzo Music and the others were not even close.
In conclusion, when it comes to Halloween specials 'Garfield in Disguise' is one of the best and a great showcase of what Garfield is all about. 10/10 Bethany Cox
