Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Christina Urban
Three great mid-1980s specials featuring the lasagna-loving cat get their DVD due in this set, including the Emmy Award-winning Garfield's Halloween Adventure (‘85), A Garfield Christmas Special (’87), and Garfield's Thanksgiving Show (‘89). Halloween finds Garfield (Lorenzo Music) and his slobbery buddy, Odie (Gregg Berger), dressing up as pirates and going on a "Candy, candy, candy!" raid. The two discover a haunted house inhabited by treasure-hunting pirates who have returned as ghosts. The great Lou Rawls sings the songs "This Is the Night" and "Scaredy Cat." For Christmas, Jon (Thom Huge) brings Garfield and Odie back to the Arbuckle farm to spend time with his family: Grandma (Pat Caroll), Mom (Julie Payne), Dad (Pat Harrington Jr.), and brother Doc Boy (Laverne & Shirley's David L. Lander). It’s a sweet tale about the importance of family; chances are you'll be teary-eyed during Grandma's chats with Garfield as he lies cozily on her lap, or at least when you see how Odie creates Garfield's surprise gift. In Thanksgiving, a trip to the vet leaves Garfield horrified to learn he must go on a diet -- before the day in which people "celebrate food by eating as much of it as possible." The prognosis is unlucky for Garfield but lucky for Jon, because the vet, Dr. Liz Wilson (Julie Payne), accepts his offer for dinner. '80s nostalgia fans will be pleased to see these three specials finally released on DVD, and parents can delight in sharing these classic 'toons with their kids.

These three Garfield holiday specials are a MUST HAVE for anyone between the ages of 1 and 100! I fondly remember all three from when I was a child, and how excited my sister and I would be the night they were finally on T.V.! Unfortunately, the Halloween and Thanksgiving episodes only aired a few years before they were replaced by newer, more current specials. However, all three rank right up there with the Charlie Brown holiday specials, but without the big words and philosophical viewpoints that might go over kids' heads. Garfield is his usual sassy, lazy self, who just can't get enough candy, turkey, or Christmas presents, but in the end, ultimately discovers the real meaning of each holiday. I absolutely reccommend this DVD to anybody, young or old!

I loved the Garfield holiday specials growing up, so I figured I buy this DVD for my 7 year old. I wasn't sure if she would even watch it since they were older cartoons, but she LOVED the DVD! She has watched it around 50 times! My 1 year old loves it too. They love watching it in our van on trips or when bored. All three episodes are really cute and family oriented. They just don't make holiday cartoons like this anymore. Holiday cartoons today just aren't as family oriented, and forget the true meanings of the holidays. I highly recommend this for all families. It would make a great video for teachers as well to play in the classroom during the holidays for younger students.
