Back in 1989 I first saw Garfield's Halloween Adventure, and so to wrap up the search for Halloween'ish movies here in October, I figured why not talk about and review it?
- Why do I remember seeing this in 1989, well because I saw it the same night I saw the Real Ghostbusters Halloween Special on ABC!
- The special when you think about is a bit of a hodgepodge of ideas, Garfield goes trick or treating... and ends up on an island as dead pirates are coming to get their treasure?
- The scene of Garfield nearly drowning stands out as one of the darkest moments in the history of all the Garfield animated specials
- The animation stills hold up, but it's clear this was made prior to when computers were more prominent with animation
