This is by far the most often rerun of the Garfield specials (available on the "Garfield: Holiday Celebrations" DVD), so the most familiar, and also the best. Garfield, Jon, and Odie go to the farm where Jon grew up, for Christmas. It came out in 1987, when I was 12 years old, which I guess means that of all the Christmas specials that I consider true classics, this is pretty much the only one to have premiered in my lifetime. I need to rewatch it sometime and write up a proper review. Meanwhile, I have made some mp3s you might enjoy....
