Public Media Distribution will re-issue two Garfield movies next week.
The company is scheduled to release Garfield: Cartoon World Tuesday on DVD. The two-movie collection features the 2007 direct-to-DVD movie Garfield Gets Real and its 2008 follow-up Garfield’s Fun Fest.
Garfield Gets Real was the first full-length movie from the CG-era of Garfield. Its story follows Garfield as he literally takes the leap from the printed page to the real world. He takes the risk because he has become bored with his life as a comic strip star.
Frank Welker (The Real Ghostbusters, Scooby Doo, Where Are You?, Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels) voices Garfield in this movie. He is joined by Jason Marsden (Hocus Pocus, A Goofy Movie, Extreme Ghostbusters) as the voice of Nermal, and Gregg Berger (Garfield On The Town, Garfield in the Rough, Garfield & Friends, The Garfield Show) as the voice of Odie. Wally Wengert (DC Superfriends, My Life as a Teenage Robot, The Angry Beavers) takes on the voice of Jon Arbuckle.
Garfield’s Fun Fest finds Garfield back in the comic strip world. In this movie, Garfield has a new contender for his title at the annual Comic Strip World talent show, which he wins every year. Making things even more interesting for Garfield is that Arlene is tired of doing the same routine annually with Garfield, so his new opponent may have a new partner. This all leaves Garfield to do some soul searching, so to speak to determine whether he wins the 30th Comic Strip World talent show.
Welker once again voices Garfield. Berger and Wingert also return in their respective roles from Garfield Gets Real. Audrey Wasilewski (My Life as A Teenage Robot, Mad Men, Red) joins the cast in this movie as the voice of Arlene.
Garfield: Cartoon World will retail for MSRP of $6.99.
