5.0 out of 5 stars Garfield, his 9 lives May 21, 2005
I don't really remember much about the other two specials on this disk, I personally have been waiting a long time for Garfield, his nine live to come out.

His lives rang from being a prehistoric cave-cat, the beloved pet of an Egyptian pharaoh, the third he belongs to a girl named Chloe and they live in a "wonderland" like garden, the forth he belongs to a court musician, the next he's a stunt cat, then is my favorite life (he also says 6 must be his lucky number leading me to believe this is his favorite life too.) In which he is given to a little girl named Sara for her eight birthday along with piano lessons, he grows up with her as she grows into adulthood and become a piano player. The end of this story has always made me cry from the first time I saw it to this day. (and I'm 21 now) In life seven Garfield is a lab test subject that escapes and actually gets away in a most interesting manner. Number 8 is the life we all know and love in witch Garfield lives with John and Oddie. In this one we get to see Garfield in his first moments in the Italian restaurant he was born it before he is adopted by John. The ninth life Garfield give us a "sneak preview" of, Garfield and Oddie are astronauts going into space and has a great ending.

4.0 out of 5 stars This DVD is not weird, just misunderstood December 25, 2005
I recently recieved this DVD as a gift and was pleased with it in general. I rated it only as 4 stars simply due to the quality of animation- which was of the norm in the late eighties on up to today.

For those who feel this DVD is too "weird" or "dark" for children please take into account two things, first being that the "9 Lives" was actually revised for television and differs from the book which had much harsher language and some content that is actually bloody, where as "Babes and Bullets" first appeared in "9 Lives" the book as one of the lives and then as it's own more light-hearted and comedic book of the same title-the latter of which is the backbone for this animated special.

As for taking these away from younger viewers who may not "get" all the jokes, you're missing the point. You shouldn't be keeping the young one from watching but rather watching it with them. This is why some of the gags are more adult in nature and why these cartoons originally aired in prime-time, to appeal to a broader audience. These are classics which should be enjoyed by both children and the Child in those of us seeing them again!

4.0 out of 5 stars GOOD TOONS BUT NOT GOOD VALUE May 27, 2005
Ok...I am a big Garfield fan and I loved the Garfield Holiday celebrations DVD that came out last year because those were some of my all-time faves..but...while the toons on this DVD are very good I'd like to see it more in the $10 price range, especially considering you get some 9 hours of material on the Garfield and Friends boxed sets for just over $30 while this DVD is just two hours. Oh well...you get two 30 minute Garfield toons and one hour long toon along with a Strawberry Shortcake trailer.

"Garfield's Nine Lives" is an hour-long Garfield special originally show in 1988. Garfield looks back on his various nine lives such as his prehistoric life, Garfield's life as a member of Royalty, Garfield in Silent movies, Garfield in the future and more.

"Garfield's Babes & Bullets" is a spoof of crime noir films as Garfield plays detective Sam "Spayed" working a case involving a mysterious dame. This one won an Emmy award.

"Garfield's Feline Fantasies" has Garfield fantasizing about commanding a sub and being an Indiana Jones-style adventurer.

To be sure, these are all great, especially Garfield's nine lives. I suppose $15 isn't so bad, especially for great material.

This is a collection of three Garfield stories that predates the Garfield and Friends show. If you're looking for a quick chuckle and notorious Monday jokes then you are going to be surprised by two of the three shows. These shows are not Saturday morning skits stretched out into an hour but instead each one is an alternate world onto itself. Sounds bizarre? It is a little but is one of those rare treats that appeals to both children and adults.

Garfield Feline Fantasies: An over active imagination sets Garfield out on an adventure that is clearly inspired by popular movies of the 80's and earlier. Of the three shows on the DVD this is probably the one that most resembles the Garfield of the comic strips. It's still fun to watch and has it's laughs but the main reason for buying this DVD is the following episodes.

Babes and Bullets: Garfield is a hard-nosed detective out to solve a murder. Yes, Garfield is solving a *murder*. Garfield narrates the entire plot line just like a Mikey Splane book from the 80's filled with dames, plot twists, and witty one-liners.

His Nine Lives: This show alone is worth the price of the DVD. It follows Garfield thru all of his past 7 lives and his future 9th life. It starts with "God" creating a cat. Not an old man with wings floating in clouds but a ghostly image of what looks like the outline of a mans face. Garfields lives are not all non-stop laughs (but some of them are just fun) as some of them tackle the issue of death and animal cruelty. It's not enough for me to just say this is bizarre or tackles an adult issue so I'm going to tell about one of the lifes.

*Spoiler* The story of Garfield's life is narrated by a woman who owned Garfield as a child.
