A another average Garfield TV movie.
24 October 2006 | by emasterslakeSee all my reviews

After 2 successful TV movies, Garfield's already on a roll in animation.

Garfield on the Rough is about Garfield and Jon Arbuckle are both bored and then came up with an idea on a vacation trip.

Garfield became excited over the idea, and kept picturing himself at exquisite locations. But Jon Arbuckle decided that they go camping. Which Garfield doesn't at all consider a great vacation trip.

When they made it to the wilderness Jon and Odie find it exciting, while Garfield already misses civilization.

But within time, Garfield soon excepts that the wilderness is a sight of beauty. Meanwhile, a new report on the Radio reported an escape Panther on the loose and gave warning for everyone in the area to remain indoors. Jon Arbuckle has no worries about it, but they must beware, when the Panther lurks around their camping grounds.

This TV movie has the same level as the previous 2, same animation in all. It still has some humor and good moments to it. And another look at for the fans.
