544. Garfield on the Town – Phil Roman


SUMMARY: When he accidentally falls out of the car on the way to the vets, Garfield finds himself alone in the city.

WHY IT’S HERE: The second Garfield TV special and the last to be produced by Mendelson-Melendez Productions, ‘Garfield on the Town’ is a significant improvement over the debut special ‘Here Comes Garfield’. With a stronger plot and better pacing, ‘Garfield on the Town’ benefits from not having the burden of establishing the characters on screen for the first time, so after only a few minutes of establishing the mood we are thrown headlong into the plot. ‘Garfield on the Town’ delves into Garfield’s back-story as he finds himself back in the now-closed pizzeria he was born in and encounters his family. The confidence in the storytelling made it clear that the Garfield series was here to stay and many more great TV specials followed.
