''{{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]])

* The Revenge of [[CaptainColorbeard Orangebeard]]: [[GangplankGalleon Pirate themed]], this level contains many references to ''PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' (the ride, silly - the movie came out eight years later).
