Garfield's Fun Fest is a 2008 CGI movie starring Garfield. It was produced by Paws, Inc. in cooperation with The Animation Picture Company and distributed by 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment. It was written by Garfield's creator Jim Davis as a sequel to Garfield Gets Real. The DVD was released in stores on August 5, 2008. It was followed by a third direct to video film, Garfield's Pet Force, in 2009.


Garfield and his friends enter a talent contest and, after various exertions and adventures, win it.

Although the script lacks literary depth and the film garnered no important accolades or serious critical notice, it does contain elements of the meta-story (the film opens with one of the characters reading a story; a character from that story later appears in the main exposition, and is ultimately revealed to be the narrator of the entire film, itself merely a story), metatheatrical overtones (the characters inhabit a comic strip and are aware of it), and the quest motif (the protagonist, Garfield, must travel through strange lands, overcome various obstacles, and achieve transformative wisdom to attain his goal).


Additional voices

Video game

A Nintendo DS game that is based on the film was released on July 29, 2008. It was developed by Black Lantern Studios and published by DSI Games in North America and Zoo Digital Publishing in Europe.


It has been announced that there will be a series of fully-CG Garfield theatrical films following the success of Fun Fest, Garfield's Pet Force and Garfield Gets Real.[1]
