There are many things one can dislike about Garfield. Like, why is he so mean to Odie? And, for once, could he not eat the whole lasagna? Or how about, he's turning 30 next year, and he hasn't aged a bit.

Parents will remember him; kids will love him. And both will want to be a part of the sing-along journey to teach Garfield a lesson in giving. Jack Desroches, executive producer of the show, now in its third season, insists, "It's not just for the kids.
"Some of the humor humor, according to ancient theory, any of four bodily fluids that determined man's health and temperament. Hippocrates postulated that an imbalance among the humors (blood, phlegm, black bile, and yellow bile) resulted in pain and disease, and that good health was is dated (for) 8-year-olds -- but adults will pick up on the (jokes) that miss the kids," he adds.

plural noun of Jon Arbuckle's cat companion, wondering, with all the joy and love of the season, will Garfield ever learn?
Garfield isn't known for being the most cheerful character. Around this time of the year, is he like the Grinch of the cat world?
Unlike the Grinch, Garfield actually really likes Christmas. But, for Garfield, Christmas is all about Garfield.
Who, besides Garfield, can we expect to see?
Of course there'll be (pet dog) Odie and the owner, Jon -- we get to meet (Garfield's teddy bear) Pookie. And (there will be) a lot of new characters specific to Christmas -- the Nutcracker nutcracker, common name for a small crow of the genus Nucifraga in the family Corvidae (crow family).

Will Garfield ever change? Possibly, lose a few pounds? Help out around the house?
After 30 years, I don't think he quite ever (changes completely) -- but one of my favorite My Favorite is an independent synthpop band from Long Island, New York. They released two CDs: Love at Absolute Zero and Happiest Days of Our Lives. My Favorite broke up on September 14, 2005, when singer Andrea Vaughn left the band. lines in the show -- and Garfield discovers this -- is, "It's not about the giving. It's not about the getting. It's about the loving." Garfield comes to learn that the things we grow up with are very important (and) the idea of keeping the Christmas spirit alive is up to you.
