Wonderful, wonderful classic holiday specials, that we have enjoyed as a family for many years! The thanksgiving episode is our least favorite, but still a good watch. The Christmas episode is wonderful, and we can watch it over and over again without tiring of it. Highly recommend!
FANTASTIC DVD Set! But Missing A Scene

"These three Garfield specials have been part of my childhood and now can be enjoyed even as an adult. A lot of the other reviews already gush over my favorite parts, so I won't bore you with posting any the same. I will however point out that the Halloween special has been edited and is not the full version shown on television.
Once Garfield and Odie return home after their scary adventure they are about to walk up the sidewalk to their house when they notice that the ghost pirates have followed them home. Scared, they both race up a tree with their candy as the ghosts circle the base of the tree waiting for them to come down. While up on a branch Garfield asks Odie why they are still after them but then notices that there is a gold coin in one of the Halloween sacks. Garfield then takes it and drops it down to the ghosts. They smile upon seeing the coin and vanish, after which Garfield and Odie are safely able to go into the house.
I have a feeling that this scene may have been taken out of the DVD release so as to not scare little kids into thinking that ghosts can follow them home. Still, I kind of feel bad the scene was taken out as it was a very memorable scene. But if you can live with the edited version, I strongly suggest you buy this set as they are just great."
A Holiday Feast of a DVD!

"Everyone's favorite fat cat delivers a disc full of Halloween hi-jinks and yuletide cheer in this wonderful collection of 3 classic holiday specials!
From 1985 comes "Garfield's Halloween Adventure!" Rudely awakened on the morning of October 31st by the Binky the Clown Show, Garfield is thrilled to find it is Halloween! He immediately goes into preparation, after another nap and breakfast that is. With faithful pup Odie alongside to increase Garfield's candy collecting by 2, the anxious cat selects pirate costumes for the pair and off they go! Little do they know that their night of successful candy collecting will eventually wind them up in a creepy old house lived in by a creepy old man and haunted by some REAL pirate ghosts!
Next up, 1989 brings us "Garfield's Thanksgiving." This delightful story of Jon's first date with veterinarian Liz takes a tragic turn when we discover that Jon has no clue when it comes to making a Thanksgiving dinner (should have just made lasagna). It's all the worse for Garfield, who has been put on a diet by Liz, ruining his favorite day of the year! Luckily, a change of heart and quick call to Jon's grandma saves the day for everyone!
Finally, from 1987 we have "A Garfield Christmas Special." Garfield dreams of having the perfect Christmas at home with gaudy decorations and lasagna and presents galore! His dreams are shattered when Jon informs him that they'll be spending Christmas with his family on the farm this year. Soon, everyone is together at Jon's childhood home. Jon, Garfield, Odie, Ma and Pa Arbuckle, Grandma, and Jon's brother Doc-Boy take us through all their Christmas traditions, from a big Christmas Eve meal to decorating the tree, to singing around the piano and reading their favorite Christmas story. Jon and Doc-Boy feel and act like kids again, awake all night in anticipation of opening their Christmas gifts the next morning! Garfield, meanwhile, forms a bond with Jon's feisty grandma and gives her the greatest gift she could receive on Christmas. It's a heartwarming and tear-jerking holiday special you won't forget!
These three Garfield holiday specials are true classics, and, honestly, I'm surprised they're not quite as old as I thought. I certainly remember watching them as a kid, and it is great to finally have them all to watch whenever I want! There just aren't enough Halloween and Thanksgiving specials out there, and these two are fantastic! And, as for Christmas, few animated Christmas specials are this real and emotional! Full of great songs, characters, stories, and animation, this disc is a must have for the Garfield and holiday lover's DVD library! Pick up this amazing DVD today and you'll be glad you did!"
The Long Wait is Over!

"Ever since I blew the opportunity to have purchased the Garfield Halloween special on VHS back in the early 90's, I have been kicking myself. This special has since become hard to find and often times very expensive when you did finally track it down (on VHS no less).
I can't believe the wait is almost over, and not only for just the Halloween special, but for the *classic* Christmas special, and Thanksgiving special as well. These were some of the staple "special" programs from my childhood, which I imagine even children of today would enjoy. The kids still go for the Charlie Brown specials, so why not this too? I know me, being a kid at heart, looks forward to finally obtaining these specials.
I have very fond memories of the Halloween special, the most vivid of which involves the old man at the end. That guy, along with the Pirate Ghosts, always managed to scare me as a child.
Finally, the empty space next to "It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown" will be filled, and I feel like my DVD collection is closer to completion."
