After viewing Vol 1, I remember just how much I missed these Cartoons on Saturday Morning! I don't know the Cartoon List, but 24 more Shows..well, you can't go wrong there!
Also, Garfield Fans, look on this site for 'Garfield's Travel Adventures', the next installment of specials, now available for pre-order!
Garfield is at the top of my DVD Toon list (and all-time favorite toons) with other collections now including Tom & Jerry and Looney Tunes Gold Collections.
The undebated high point came five years later when Fox syndicated the wonderful weekly series, Garfield and Friends. It was everything other cartoon fare wasn't. Like Peanuts, it was paced to the comic. Long before Animaniacs, there were subtle send-ups of the state of the tube: the Buddy Bears parodying early attempts at "educational" cartoons, prompting Joe Barbara to proclaim he was in favor of cartoons that were "mindlessly funny" instead of "mindlessly preachy." It stands up now as a cartoon with high production values, and the series compares favorably with Film Roman's Garfield specials. Disney would bring the same high standard with its re-entry into weekday cartoons, beginning with Ducktales.
Then there was Lorenzo Music's inimitable voicing of Garfield. Characters frequently broke into song and dance numbers, but always stopping to wink at the audience, "hey, you know it's a cartoon." Running through the endlessly repeating set of a haunted house, Garfield would note that either monsters were afoot or the producers had been buying old Scooby Doo scripts. Orson Pig would read books, not to be educational, but always with pratfalls, slapstick and pure imagination.Read more ›

I ordered all of these volumes cause I watched this cartoon growing up and loved it. It was heartbreaking when they stopped showing it on tv. I'm so glad they are on dvd now.Published 8 months ago by Suzanne Schneider
