Cinderella...updated

Anyone remember watching reruns of "Garfield and Friends"? If so you'd probably remember that the middle segment was dedicated to another creation of Jim Davis, the U.S. Acres.

And let's face it, most of the early US Acres shorts were cheesy, what with the music and all. Well, later in the run the musical shtick was dropped and became more story oriented. In another words, it became good.

As proof here's an episode from the middle of Garfield's run: Bedtime Story Blues, where they update the story of Cinderella.

Eat your heart out, Disney.

I think GARFEILD AND FRIENDS was a remarkably witty show. They pandered to both kids in children by attacking the stupidity of modern life but kid's could understand what was going on. They are making a new CGI show called "The Garfeild Show" minus US Acres. I am really not looking forward to it.
