Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Garfield, the newspaper cartoon strip by Jim Davis, was such a hit when adapted to occasional animated specials on CBS in the 1980s that the network built a Saturday morning series, Garfield and Friends, around the portly, sardonic cat. The new show, wrapped within its winning programming formula, also proved successful. Episodes of Garfield and Friends featured two eight-minute stories starring Garfield, the airhead pooch Odie, and their owner, bachelor Jon Arbuckle, that were joined by one short, delightful new cartoon called U.S. Acres, concerning the misadventures of a group of barnyard animals led by a clever pig called Orson. Garfield and Friends expanded to an hour by season 2 and lasted seven years; several members of the vocal cast also had leading roles on U.S. Acres, and both shows attracted such celebrity guests as Bill Murray, Chevy Chase, and Debra Messing.

As with the CBS specials, Garfield and Friends fortunately found Jim Davis in a hands-on, production capacity. But if the new shorts prove not quite as soulful as those longer, prior productions, they are nonetheless witty, well-written, and spirited. The 24 episodes (48 individual Garfield 'toons in all) included in Garfield and Friends, Volume 1 are full of fresh ideas and good laughs. Among the highlights are "Box o' Fun," in which Garfield proves to have a Snoopy streak when an ordinary cardboard box becomes (courtesy of Garfield's imagination) a vessel for numerous, wild-eyed adventures. In "Nothing to Sneeze At," Liz the veterinarian consents to a mercy date with Jon, only to find Garfield jealously tagging along. The slapstick "Magic Mutt" finds Garfield and a dog dueling in a magic shop, turning one another (and poor Jon) into a variety of animal and human forms. About U.S. Acres: It may take an episode or two to catch on, but once it does, the show proves to have a sweet sophistication similar to Garfield. --Tom Keogh

Product Description

Get set for the first Garfield & Friends collection, featuring 24 episodes of the hilarious animated Saturday Morning TV series starring that fat and sassy feline who lives for lasagna and can't stand diets, exercise and Mondays!  Along with his not-too-bright pooch pal, Odie, and gullible owner, Jon, Garfield coughs up a hairball of humor that every human will love. Each episode contains a Garfield sandwich, featuring two slices of Garfield & Friends and a chewy center of U.S. Acres, the show featuring Garfield’s farm-fresh friends, also created by comic genius Jim Davis.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just as much fun now as it was years ago... January 24, 2005
Garfield and Friends was always one of the funniest cartoons on TV when I was a young kid. In fact, aside from your Looney Tunes, your Animaniacs and your Fairly Oddparents, I think it's one of the funniest cartoons ever.

There are a number of "Quickies" in this show that are short jokes, most of which are animated versions of actual comic strips, and at the show's midpoint, there is a cartoon originally called "Orson's Farm" and later called "U. S. Acres," featuring a number of unique and amusing characters. Orson; the pig voice of reason and the cultured one, Wade the eternal scaredy-cat duck, Roy the trick-playing rooster, Sheldon, the walking egg whose legs are the only part of him that are hatched, but who somehow has all manner of appliances in his shell, and so on and so forth. These characters each have their own unique behavior patterns, but are funniest when some running-gag is introduced to their lives or when making fun of public service announcements (which is what I choose to interpret large parts of this cartoon as.) However, virtually every time Orson and Friends come on, they wind up in a musical number, many of which are really quite trite. However, I'm going to dismiss even many of these for a reason I will later outline.

The real meat of the show is Garfield himself, and he, Odie and Jon (and occasionally a guest-character or several) occupy two thirds of the show's longer segments. Garfield and his supporting cast are quick with a joke and good at coming up with funny coincidences and/or well thought out cartoon gags a few times every minute, which may not seem like much where sheer volume is concerned, but when Garfield does it, it feels classy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Splut! May 7, 2004
The fun never ends with the first installment of the long awaited release of "Garfield and Friends" Volume 1 on DVD. This is a show that has stood the test of time and is fun for all ages. I'm 31 and I still occasionally take out my Garfield and Friends VHS tapes from their secret vault for some laughs! I, like all fans of the big orange cat, am anxiously awaiting all episodes to be released on DVD. ...I met Jim Davis last year on the 25th Anniversary tour and he is a great guy - go out and buy this DVD!!

Show #4: Garfield: Peace and Quiet / U.S. Acres Wanted: Wade! / Garfield Goes Hawaiian
Show #5: Box O'Fun / Unidentified Flying Orson / School Daze
