Boomerang to stream remastered Garfield and Friends


Turner’s U.S. streaming service Boomerang is adding another nostalgic favourite to its lineup. The first 30 remastered episodes of Garfield and Friends will debut on November 1st. The show has been remastered in a 4K resolution. The streaming service already offers a variety of the franchise’s television specials.

Based on the popular comic strip by Jim Davis, the series revolves around the sarcastic Garfield, a lazy feline whose only desires in life are lasagna, catnaps and avoiding Mondays. Along with his not-too-bright pooch pal, Odie, and gullible owner, Jon, this ginger cat knows only how to get into hilarious trouble. The show originally ran for 121 episodes on CBS between 1988 and 1995.

Syndicated in 80 countries and translated into 42 languages, 220 million people read the comic strip each day. The brand boasts 400 licensees across 5,000 products and has earned over 17 million fans on Facebook. Garfield and Friends was produced by Mendelson/Paws Productions. Canadian entertainment company 9Story purchased the rights to the series back in May 2016, with immediate plans of working on a remastered version.

Turner relaunched the Boomerang brand as a subscription video-on-demand service in March 2017. Like the linear channel of the same name, it features classic animated television shows alongside modern revivals. Garfield and Friends previously aired on the linear channel, as did the CG-animated revival The Garfield Show.
