In the ‘80s, Garfield cartoons were so popular, the cat got its own Saturday morning show. “GARFIELD AND FRIENDS,” just released by FOX, is comprised of the show’s first season. There are 24 episodes presented here.
What made this cat so popular was probably due to its “un” characteristic attitude. “GARFIELD” was a wise-ass, and enjoyed being selfish, and annoying dogs. The writing for this season is surprisingly and consistently witty. Each episode is made up of two “GARFIELD” cartoon sketches and a short centering around farm animals, “US ACRES.”
FOX has presented the show’s original 1.33:1 aspect ratio. Colors are solid, however, there are frequent signs of grain and edge enhancement throughout. Still, it’s more than watchable, just not as sharp as we’d hoped for.
FOX has presented the original Mono Mix, with an option for spanish dubbing. The fidelity is fine and there is no distortion.
FOX has included a trailer for the new theatrical film “GARFIELD: THE MOVIE”.
