* DeliberatelyMonochrome: Just like the movie it's based off, Catsablanca is only black and white, save for Garfield and some items you can collect.
* DemBones: Enemies in the Orangebeard level, including the boss. There are also skeleton enemies in Count Slobula's Castle.



* GameBreakingBug: Occasionally, the third boss would walk offscreen and never return, forcing the player to start over the game.

* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Garfield cannot damage Glitch directly, he has to reflect his energy shots back into him.



* LaughingMad: Glitch, during his boss battle. As he takes more hits his laughing becomes more frequent to the point where he's constantly cackling on his last hit point.
* MeaningfulName: "Season Finale" is an appropriate title for the game's final level.
* OffModel: The comic cutscenes at the beginning of the game have a few coloring errors, including giving Garfield a blue nose for some odd reason.

Added DiffLines:

* BottomlessPitRescueService: Exclusive to the Game Gear version, a butterfly would carry Garfield back to land at the cost of 2 health points. If he had less than that, it wouldn't save him. How a butterfly can carry Garfield is something only TV could explain.

Added DiffLines:

* ReformulatedGame: The Game Gear version features eight levels and removes several features. The PC version has a different version of the Alien Landscape level, and the levels are in a different order, creating less of a DifficultySpike towards the beginning.

''{{Garfield}}: Caught in the Act'' is a PlatformGame was released by Creator/{{Sega}} in 1995 for the UsefulNotes/SegaGenesis to [[CashCowFranchise cash in]] on the success of Jim Davis's comic strip, ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}''. The sprites were hand-drawn by Davis and his group of artists. Which is quite impressive considering the hardware of the Genesis.

{{Backstory}}: Odie sneaks up and scares {{Garfield}} while he is watching television, causing him to break it. They work together to fix it before they face the wrath of Jon. What is left is definitely NOT a television. Garfield throws away the 'spare parts' that were left upon completion. These parts come to life, becoming The Glitch, which [[TrappedInTVLand throws Garfield into the world of television]]. Each level is a different TV genre. Collecting TV remote pieces lead you to win the game.

* DownloadableContent: Possibly one of the earliest examples in gaming. ''Garfield: The Lost Levels'', a pack of downloadable extra levels, was available through the Genesis online service, called the Sega Channel. It featured versions of the Game Gear levels and even the Alien Landscape that appeared on PC. Chances of seeing them again [[LostForever are dim by now]], sadly.

* Cave Cat 3,000,000 B.C.: {{Prehistoria}}. Garfield is a sabre-toothed fat cat. Highlights include jumping up to avoid the broccoli falling down a cheese waterfall. The boss is an Odiesaurus, naturally and is {{g|ameBreakingBug}}litchy (at least in the Genesis version). (arguably inspired by "Cave Cat" segment of ''ComiBook/GarfieldHis9Lives'', in which the dog is named... [[FluffyTheTerrible Big Bob]])
