Also never saw it, to be honest, I didn't really like the cartoon that much, just the comic strip (which the cartoon never managed to capture). Here's a random piece of trivia for you, as you know, Bill Murray played Garfield in the film, but the guy who did the voice for the cartoon (Lorenzo Music) also did the voice of Dr. Peter Venkman in the cartoon of Ghostbusters (right at the beginning of the cartoon), the same role played in the original Film by Mr Murray. I always found that to be kinda cool. Sort of.
But yeah, if Garfield dies in the next movie, I'll be sort of happy...I guess.
