Garfield In The Rough

A half-hour animated television special based on the Garfield comic strip. It once again featured Lorenzo Music as the voice of Garfield. The special was first broadcast October 26, 1984 on CBS. It won the 1985 Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Animated Program.

In this story (based on the comic strip), Garfield is living in a boring, black and white world, claiming that all the color has gone out of his life. He is excited to learn that Jon wants to take him and Odie on vacation, where he imagines himself in places such as Acapulco, Honolulu and Venice, only to be disappointed to find out that they're just going camping. Hilarity ensues.
