Halloween Special: Garfield’s Halloween Adventure

In Halloween Specials by Jenna Wolford

Here it is, the second installment of our retro Halloween specials! This time it’s 1985’s Garfield’s Halloween Adventure, which was originally called Garfield in Disguise.

Aired on network television for the first time in October 1985, this is a special that ran pretty regularly, but of course, they just don’t air them anymore.

Not sure why. Too much awesome for kids nowadays?

I betcha.

Honestly? I don’t now who was scarier when I first saw this at the tender age of 5, the pirate ghosts or the man in the chair. Seriously. Read on and watch the entire Halloween special at the end!

Garfield’s Halloween Adventure

HEYYYY KIDDSSS!

Garfield’s Halloween Adventure: Blinky let’s Garfield know what’s up with Halloween. Garfield can’t believe his pointy kitty ears.

Garfield is just finding out about Halloween for the first time. It’s not so much the holiday he’s into, it’s the free candy. Naturally.

Odie Don't Play That

Garfield’s Halloween Adventure: Odie might have a semblance of a brain?

Well you know two sacks have got to be better than one… so he gives Odie some story about dogs helping cats and since Odie’s dumb, he’s completely on board.

Costumes and a Musical Number

Garfield’s Halloween Adventure: Impressive costume.

I enjoy going through my Halloween stuff this much, too…

LOL Garfield, LOL

Garfield’s Halloween Adventure: Odie the Stupid.

The most lulz-worthy line in the entire thing. Especially if you’re 5 and named Jen.

Dear God, a Clear Child

Garfield’s Halloween Adventure: The one thing he’s not is a scaredy cat.

TOT’ing is going pretty well, Garfield threatens a nice lady into giving them more candy, and everyone under their costumes is really a terrifying ghoul. You know, pretty normal.

The Old Man

Garfield’s Halloween Adventure: The scary old man!!!

So they decide they aren’t getting a good enough loot collection and see some houses across the way. They take a boat, find a house and well, let the real terror begin!

AHH GOATS

Garfield’s Halloween Adventure: NO SPOILERS HERE.

Nice headwear.
