10/30/1985: Debut of ‘Garfield’s Halloween Adventure’
Who else remembers this TV special? It debuted on CBS 35 years ago tonight. It won the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Animated Program.
It used to air on Network TV annually around Halloween, piggy-backed with "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown,' but in recent years, it has not been shown.
I vaguely remember watching this TV special year-after-year as a youngster. I don't remember much about it, other than the Ghost Pirates scared me. Boooo!
Garfield makes a pirate costume then takes Odie out trick-or-treating to ensure extra candy. But when attempting to cross a river on a boat, Garfield and Odie end up at a haunted house.
