Garfield steals the show in a unique murder/mystery.
I remember seeing this Garfield special when I was all of nine years old, I have loved it ever since.
Garfield has been to Hollywood and rescued Odie from the dog pound...but now we get to see him a'la Humphrey Bogart as Sam Spade, PI, a wise-cracking feline investigator hot on the tail of a murderer.
The show itself is in the traditional black and white, except for a few brief moments in the beginning and end. Sam Spade has been hired by a beautiful human, Tonya O'Tabby (get the name?) to find the person responsible for the death of her 23 year-old husband. Spade questions several suspects- the husband's university boss, Professor O'Felix (another cat reference) and his own girl Friday, the lovely Kitty. Garfield, sporting the usual hat and trench coat, might just be able to solve this mystery if he can keep John at bay and Tonya O'Tabby in check. Who really is responsible for this outrageous "who dunnit"?
This is a unique Garfield show that I found a little scary when I was a kid since it was darker and less comedic, but I loved it anyway. The amazing Lorenzo Music reprises his role as Garfield. Highly recommended.
