Now that we got Charlie Brown outta the way, we’ve got A Garfield Christmas airing Tuesday at 7 on ABC Family.
The comic strip version of Garfield gets a lot of flak, and rightfully so, but animated Garfield is actually kinda funny. Either sarcasm works better when spoken, or it’s because of the increased supporting cast in the animated shows. In the Christmas special, Garfield is totally upstaged by Jon’s Grandma, a woman who plays a mean rockabilly piano and dares people to punch her in the stomach. Man, that’s how I wanna live.
