Love Garfield comics?
Wish they were animated?
Garfield and Friends is
for you as the world of Jim Davis’s Garfield is brought to animated
life. Long suffering John, the perennially picked on Odie and of
course Garfield, get themselves into all manner of predicaments,
many of them lame, few amusing. Lorenzo Music as the voice of
Garfield embodies the sarcasm and dry wit of the famous cat – as
good, if not better than Bill Murray in the hideous big screen
Also along for the ride, occupying
the “and Friends” portion of the title are the characters from Jim
Davis’s other comic creation, Orson’s Farm. Orson’s Farm follows
the adventures of a group of farm animals including Orson the pig, a
pair of sheep twins, a lazy rooster, a paranoid duck and a chick and
unhatched egg. I found the Orson’s farm segments much more
enjoyable, the ensemble lending itself to a wider array of stories –
that and I’m not the world’s biggest Garfield fan.
Despite the 1988 vintage many kids
will no doubt get a kick out of the collection of cartoons presented
– and I dare say many old school Garfield fans will relish the
chance to enjoy the world of Garfield all over again.
