Main Plot Points:
- Get ready for high-energy good times with everyone’s favorite low-energy cat! Join in Garfield’s silly adventures in these six animated episodes from the sensational series – plus an additional bonus episode.
- You’ll laugh out loud as the persnickety kitty confronts a digitized mail carrier, battles with his cable company, tries to solve Jon’s cyber-troubles and even becomes a TV celebrity himself. It’s high-voltage fun and hijinks with Garfield and his furry pals!
- “A Garfield Christmas”: Jon goes home to the farm for the holidays. While Odie works on a mystery gift, Garfield plans to surprise Grandma. “Garfield’s Thanksgiving”: On Thanksgiving, according to Garfield, people celebrate food by “eating as much of it as possible. It’s a tradition, I love tradition.” But that tradition is history following a checkup from veterinarian Liz Wilson, a sassy lady who’s also the new heartthrob to Garfield’s owner, Jon.
- “Garfield’s Halloween Adventure”: Garfield has one spooktacular adventure on the Eve of All Saints. He fashions himself a pirate costume and takes Odie out trick-or-treating to ensure extra candy. But when attempting to cross a river, Garfield and Odie end up at a haunted house. “Garfield on the Town”: Jim Davis’ feisty feline is on his own after slipping out of the car on a trip to the vet. Forced to scrounge for food, Garfield has a run-in with the mean Ali Cat and his gang, and is later reunited with his long lost mother. “Garfield in Paradise” finds the cool cat, his owner Jon and Odie the dog vacationing on a tropical island along with the High Rama Lama of rock and roll (voice of Wolfman Jack), a princess and her cat – and a rumbling volcano.
What We Thought:
- I think I’ve watched every Garfield DVD of the past 2-3 years and every time I like them. The Garfield Show: Techno Cat and Garfield Holiday Collection are no different.
- Techno Cat is the latest from The Garfield Show. You get about an hour’s worth of episodes and a bonus short. Cyber Mailman was probably my favorite of the bunch. Each episode is about technology in some form.
- Just in time for the holidays comes Garfield Holiday Collection. You get episodes about Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Halloween. I think they are different than The Garfield Show: Holiday Extravaganza, but it’s been two years since I’ve seen that one so I’m not 100% sure.
- The best thing about this DVD is the bonus features that includes A Visit with Jim Davis. I really enjoyed this. I don’t know if the kids will care, but it’s something I’d watch again.
- Just like I’ve said about all the other DVDs, it’s not my favorite version of Garfield. I’m not big on this type of computer animation, but the kids like it. I’ve been a Garfield fan since I was a child so I’ll continue watching these despite not loving the animation.
- If you are a fan, you’ll enjoy both The Garfield Show: Techno Cat and Garfield Holiday Collection. Both fit perfectly with your other DVDs and they are perfect to watch as a family.
