Invasion of the Big Robots! Say what you will about the decline of Garfield, but he had his brighter moments, like the time he woke up in the wrong cartoon and had to fight the big robots. Garfield and Friends writer Mark Evanier tells the story behind this budget-busting episode. [Previously] [more inside]
Faithful live-action recreations of "classic" Garfield comic strips. (Quicktime required.)
"HEEEEEEEY, KIDS!" When you want to know about the history of TV's Garfield and Friends, sometimes you have to go directly to the source. Or to a devoted fan. Marvel at the majestic Klopman Diamond, recoil in fear from the Kung Fu creatures on the rampage, and join up with ants who ruin your dinner.
Jim Davis' other strip was U.S. Acres, with Orson the Pig, Roy the Rooster, chick and egg Booker and Sheldon, sheep Bo and Lanolyn, and... a dog named Cody and a cat named Blue? Everyone who grew up from that time remembers the long-running Saturday morning show, but no one remembers the strip, which ended a couple of years before the cartoon did and evolved on a different track. Platypus Comix brings us highlights from the strip's surprisingly good, yet neglected, newspaper run.
