School's out for summer and Garfield and Odie are at it again in this six-episode filled disc of adventures from Vivendi Entertainment.
Garfield and Odie.
The Garfield Show – The six episodes of The Garfield Show: Summer Adventures are such a fun watch! The iconic lazy orange cat is at it again in his pursuit of his own selfish desires at the mercy of Jon’s sanity. In six episodes (plus a bonus seventh entitled Fame Fatale), the audience will travel along with Garfield, Odie, and the rest of his to rescue their treasured pizzeria, resist being transformed into a normal cat, and search for gold at the end of a rainbow! It’s a fun ride for all ages.
The show is based off of the famous comic strip, and was even fashioned by its creator, Jim Davis who is also the executive producer. Mark Evanier is the cowriter and voice director of the series and is also behind the successful animated television series. It debuted as Garfield et Cie on French television in 2008, and in 2009, it debut its English language shows. The animated voice behind the Garfield character is Frank Welker, and the voice of Garfield’s human owner, Jon Arbuckle is Wally Wingert.
The animated adventure “Perfect Pizza” is a fun tale about Garfield supporting a local pizzeria and his favorite pizza chef Vito from a rapidly approaching pizza chain of stores, Mama Meanies Pizza Palace. Garfield loathes the taste of the new pizza pie and urges Jon to return to Vito’s. When Garfield realizes that Vito’s might go under, mostly because he is motivated by good food–he rally his friends in support of his favorite establishment! Garfield and his friends together repelled the corporate restaurant influences and saves Vito’s restaurant! The tabby has a big heart and will not hesitate to do what he can and help his friends.
In another summer adventure, Garfield and Odie have an encounters a leprechaun in “Lucky Charm“, proving sometimes we must be careful with what we wish for, even if it does seem good. “Extreme Housebreaking” reveals an exhausted Jon who’s just had enough of Garfield’s behavior so he decides to send the troublesome feline to Dr. Whipple, a pet psychologist and trainer. Is it even a wonder Garfield if his lessons will pan out?
A poor novice mailman becomes subjected to Garfield’s psychological warfare in “Mailman Blues“. Garfield discovers a new theme park in town entirely made of cheese in “It’s a Cheese World“! Next, the cat gets the idea to become a superhero (to the best of his ability) in “Super Me“. Finally, in the bonus episode “Fame Fatale”, Garfield becomes friends with a doppelganger who just happens to be a celebrity!
While some may miss the traditionally animated Garfield and Friends, the 3D appearance of The Garfield Show is refreshing and colorful. Garfield’s laugh is sneaky, yet adorable, and his humor is still as sarcastic as found in the comic strip.
Garfield’s ‘summer of silliness’ includes:
- Perfect Pizza
- Lucky Charm
- Extreme Housebreaking
- Mailman Blues
- It’s a Cheese World
- Super Me!
- and a Bonus episode “Fame Fatale!”
