YMMV / Garfield: His 9 Lives

  • Accidental Innuendo: A blatantly obvious one: BIG BOB CUM!
  • Adaptation Displacement: The Animated Adaptation is still in print and sold on the official Garfield website. The comic, on the other hand, barely gets so much as a mention, meaning some people may only be able to experience the adaptation.
  • Award Snub: Despite being the most creative of all Garfield specials, it lost the Emmy to the Babes And Bullets one (which ironically was based on a segment of the" book).
  • Awesome Music:
    • As always, Lou Rawls' opening song for the special, this one done in a definite blues style.
    • The music that plays during the escape sequence in "Lab Animal" sounds like something out of an action thriller from the 80's.
    • The song that was composed in "Court Musician" has a jazz vibe to it.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Live A Live later used this concept to more complex levels. What really sells it is that each boss is a variant on "Odio," which is "hatred" in Spanish/Portugese/Italian. Considering what happens in that game, Garfield is going to have to watch his back.
  • Tear Jerker: "Diana's Piano".
    • "Primal Self" as well. "Tigger" was obviously well loved ..
  • What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs?: "The Garden" is very surreal at times in both incarnations.
