The specials use the same voice actors and animation style, at least from ''Garfield in the Rough'' onwards, as the animated series ''WesternAnimation/GarfieldAndFriends'', though there is no official word on whether the specials should be considered to be set in the same verse as the series.

* AdaptationExpansion: Some of the novelizations add scenes absent in the cartoons notably, the ''Halloween'' book adds a subplot about Garfield stealing a ring, which explains why he's being chased by ghosts.

* HumanSacrifice: In "Garfield in Paradise," the island princess (and her cat) are sent to jump into an erupting volcano. Her rather cynical father comments that it doesn't so much appease the spirit of the volcano as is "plugs up the hole."

Added DiffLines:

* DarkerAndEdgier: While the original Garfield comic strip, as well as ''[[WesternAnimation/GarfieldAndFriends and Friends,]]'' are GagSeries with NoFourthWall, the specials tend to be much more dramatic. ''Halloween Adventure'' in particular.

* ArtEvolution: When watching the specials in order, you can see how Garfield has evolved over the years. The first two specials have Garfield drawn in his early 80's style. He still is for the first few scenes of ''Garfield in the Rough,'' then the eyes slowly get larger during the rest of the special. And by ''Garfield Goes Hollywood,'' he has the look he has in ''[[WesternAnimation/GarfieldAndFriends Garfield and Friends.]]''
