Awesome Music / Garfield and Friends
In addition to the Awesome Music
of the Garfield Specials
(especially in Here Comes Garfield
), Garfield and Friends
has a fantastic musical score that embraces and enhances the world of the characters we know and love
- The first opening. It starts out slow, then comes in with a very upbeat, bouncy, and silly tune.
- The second intro is also pretty awesome. Unlike the first one, it's catchy and upbeat all the way through.
- "The Picnic Panic" is a hearty Musical Episode all about Garfield, Jon, and Odie going on a picnic, with the Ants making their debut stealing their picnic. The characters never skip a beat when singing, and the episode has a great, lighthearted Ear Worm tune to boot.
- The Buddy Bears and their theme song, a good natured Take That at The Complainer Is Always Wrong cartoons (particularly The Get Along Gang). Even more ironic when you realize Garfield and co. make them fight a lot.
- As annoying as he may be (In-Universe, at least), Binky the Clown is one of the more regular recurring characters, and he had some good music to associate his corny act with. Two good examples include his jolly, short theme tune, and his own little memetic Birthday song.
- The title song from "Garfield's Garbage Can and Tin Pan Alley Review". "In the whole wide world you must have something better to do. Than watch the Garfield Garbage Can and Tin Pan Alley Review."
- In the episode "Beddy Buy", Garfield and Jon sing a song about what they'll buy in the store ("Hello Charge Card! Money in the Bank Bye Bye!").
- The song Garfield sings in "First Class Kitten" when Nermal asks him where he's sending him. A bouncy tune about how Garfield wants Nermal far away because he's too cute.
- In "Green Thumbs Down", we have a beautiful song about Jon's new vegetable garden.
- The entire episode "Truckin' Odie", wherein Garfield (somewhat snidely) narrates an adventure of Odie's. Starts with a lone banjo on a stage and builds into a rousing trucker-country power ballad.
- Many of Orson's songs. "Banana Nose" from the episode of the same title. The song from "Shell Shocked Sheldon" to convince Sheldon to hatch. Two Heartwarming ones in "National Tapioca Pudding Day" and "Mud Sweet Mud". The 50's theme song from "Goody-Go-Round", and one from "No Laughing Matter". Also, "Superstition", and "Wade, You're Afraid" from the episode of the same name.
- Lanolin only had three songs, one in "Unidentified Flying Orson", where she was singing to Orson not to believe everything he reads, a heartwarming one in "I Like Having You Around!" to her brother of said title, and in "Sleepytime Pig", an upbeat workout song to help Orson get to sleep.
- Sadly, Bo only had two songs, one in "The Bad Sport" where he talks his sister into trying new things like playing a new game and the one in "Keeping Cool" when he was singing to Orson about keeping his cool. His voice and singing sounded much cooler in the Spanish version.
- Roy's song from "The Impractical Joker" was actually pretty catchy. In comparison, his singing voice sounds better in the Spanish version. His jazz-blues song from "Cock-a-Doodle Dandy", sounds good as he keeps on singing. His song from "The Legal Eagle" is catchy too and his voice sounds better and deeper in the Spanish version.
- Wade's not normally a good singer, but he sounded so awesome in "Flop Goes the Weasel" when he changed his voice and sounded more confident. "Oh, yes, I am a hero! I mean if that's OK!" He also sounded pretty good in "Orson Goes On Vacation". "What Harm Can It Do" could also be this; the electric guitar-led accompaniment is particularly awesome.
- The Mother turtle's rock song from "Scrambled Eggs" is a jamming song that the Turtle sings to her baby (or Sheldon, mistakenly) when she's waiting for them to hatch.
- The Bond-esque "Double-Oh-Orson" song.
- The song from "Swine Trek". Also of note that in the Spanish version, Sheldon sang the song and made it sound more mysterious.
- The "There Once Was A Pig Named Aloysius" song in "Kiddie Korner" counts as this, as well as an Ear Worm.
- "I Want To Be Nice" is this combined with Funny Moments.
- Roy's song from "Cock a Doodle Duel" where he sings in an Elvis like voice about being king of the barnyard.
