Special TV-Garfield TV Specials

So as I talked about before, June will be Garfield’s 40th anniversary. Since I talked about the comic strip last time, what to discuss this time? How about all the TV specials? Truth is I have hardly discussed them, and to be even more honest I barely remember them! Mostly because, I was not a fan of them (holiday one’s aside). They just never grabbed me, and in fact I remember the books these specials were adapted into more than the shows themselves. I think I had most of them. They were mostly in the 80’s and I never understood why they stopped. Though I supposed you could argue the Saturday Morning Cartoon had something to do with that. Still that’s eleven specials over ten years, pretty good! Man, I miss the days when the networks would put an animated special on just because.

And hey guess who else has a birthday this year? Yes there’s yet another one later this year for a certain little mouse. Makes you wonder how much attention I pay to things when three icons I love have birthday’s this year and I didn’t realize it.

Top 5 Superman Reveals His Identity to Lois Scenes

I talked a few weeks ago about how cool it the first time we see the reveal of a hero in a movie. But another cool thing is when we see the hero finally reveal his identity to a loved one. Of course no one owns this more than Superman!
