Garfield and Friends is one of my favorite classic cartoons that's not from the DiC, Hanna-Barbera, or Jay Ward library. And I've noticed that the CGI show, The Garfield Show isn't as fun as the original series, it looks more like a poorly made video game or a sequel to Rudolph and the Island of Misfit Toys (which sucked). I hate how Nermal acts like a total jerk in this series and that the animals' mouths move instead of telepathy. In my opinion, stay away from any Garfield media that isn't the comic strip, Garfield and Friends, or the primetime specials.
But if I could make The Garfield Show, I'd make it more like the original series with a few modifications.
The show would be in 2D like the original.
We'd use Lyman, Odie's original owner from the 70's and 80's. So, this means the show would be more like the comic strip from the 80's and 70's generation.
Garfield and his friends would talk through thought and their mouths wouldn't move. They would also be more quadrepedal.
We'd have US Acres cartoons, but this time with Cody the Dog and Blue the Cat. They were characters from the original comic strip. Every now and again, there would be cartoons starring another Jim Davis charatcer, Gnrom Gnat.
* Myself as Garfield/Jon/Odie/Wade Duck (I know nobody can replace Lorenzo Music as Garfield, but I can mak a good impression of him)
* Rob Paulsen as Roy Rooster/Lyman
* Grey DeLisle-Griffin as Nermal/Arlene/Lanolin/Blue
* Frank Welker as Booker/Sheldon/Bo Sheep
If you could remake The Garfield Show, what would it be like?
