THOUGHTS IN SPACE
The Terror of the Lasagna Eating Cat
Like all kids growing up in the 1980s, I read and laughed at Garfield, so I was pleased when my own child discovered and found humor in the fat orange cat. (Hey, at eight-years-old, the dad jokes of Garfield are great!) And like most kids, I vaguely remember watching Garfield cartoons, but I have zero memory of the Garfield Halloween Special – The Garfield Halloween Adventure.
Turns out, for kids, it is pretty spooky. You have a freaky clown, freaky looking trick-r-treaters, and, then, the old man. My oldest had a BLAST watching this, but my youngest, two-going-on-WWF-wrestler, got quite spooked, which kind of bumped it up on my list of cartoon Halloween specials because being scared about Halloween is a formative event (or series of events) in a young kid’s life!
