I have this DVD, and my favorite episode on here is Wanted: Wade! What Harm Can It Do was so cool!

The First Season of the 1988-1994 series Garfield and Friends, will have the kids watching this volume over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again.

Having just finished the Garfield and Friends - Volume 1 DVD Set, I feel like posting my thoughts on it, in pros and cons, and then a ranking of the episodes on the set. But first, the pros and cons:


- The background colors are brighter.

- The first 2/3 of the set are absolute gold IMO.


- The set is used to promote the movie and that's it. It shows, too: the only extra feature is, of all things, the teaser trailer for Garfield: The Movie.

- There are a LOT of white specks of grain apparent in most of the episodes.

- The only audio track on this set is mono, and it gets worse on the 3rd disc.

- The US Acres cartoons' title has changed to "Orson's Farm". If US Acres was called that when the series first started, I don't know, but I always knew the series as "US Acres".

Despite there being more cons than pros, the episodes (all up to the 2nd half of the 3rd disc) make up for it, which leads to the 7/10 score.
