GARFIELD [as king cat narrating]: 2,000 BC. Was a good year to be a cat in Egypt. We were revered, even worshiped. Ah, for the good old days. Ancient Egypt wasn't the arid wasteland you might expect. Naw, it was bustling with activity in 2,000 BC. The pyramids were still under construction. In those days we
cats were venerated and worshiped
because of the cat goddess Bastet. She was the head of the hierarchy of animal gods. This was one Egyptian belief that certainly got no argument from us cats. Me,
I was known as king cat.
I was the favorite cat of King Amenhotep the 3rd. I called him Junior. Those were happy days. I had my own personal bevy of slave dogs. And for fun I would go over to the pyramids and torture the construction workers. [speking] To the pyramids you mutts, lets get a move on. [narrating] It doesn't get any better than this. [speking] Stay. Did I ever tell you
I love it when you grovel?
Okay, okay, enough adoration. Back to work!
SLAVES: Whoomp whoomp boring. Whoomp whoomp boring. Whoomp whoomp boring.
GARFIELD [speaking]: You know guys. What if we built a cube instead of a pyramid?
GARFIELD: OK, OK. Big babies.
SLAVES: Whoomp whoomp boring. Whoomp whoomp boring. Whoomp whoomp boring. Whoomp whoomp boring. Whoomp whoomp boring.
GARFIELD: Alright you back to work. We got a deadline to meet you know. I want these pyramids built by Thursday.
SLAVE: Hay, have a heart mate I'm doing the best I can.
GARFIELD: If you know whats good for you, you'll get your shoulder back to the stone.
SLAVE: Yeah, I'd like to get your shoulder back to the stone.
GARFIELD: What was that!
SLAVE: I just said. If you know whats good for you. You'd be back at the temple rather than here picking on us poor slaves.
GARFIELD: And just what is that suppose to mean?
Read the glyphs mate, writings on the wall.
GARFIELD: I don't like the looks of this.
SLAVE: That's right mate. When the king croaks, he takes all his worldly possessions with him. And
you are a possession, get the picture?
GARFIELD [narrating]: I got the picture all to clearly. Old Junior is not even bright enough to come in out of a sandstorm. And then to complicate the situation his evil brother prince Black Bart has had his eyes on the throne for some time now. Ooh, if my lifespan is to coincide with Junior's. I'd better get back there and protect him from Bart.
Giddy-up, you doggies!
JUNIOR [singing]: Daa do Te do Te do. Doodle de do Te do Te do.
BLACK BART: Hay, Junior. Hay man, you know, I have a surprise for you.
JUNIOR: Ooh, goody goody goody. I just love surprises. Where is it. Where is it?
BLACK BART: It's ah, through that door. Go ahead step through the door. I think your going to be surprised.
GARFIELD: Mush! Mush!
JUNIOR: Aw, shucks I don't see any surprise around here. Ooh, sometimes that Black Bart makes me so mad!
JUNIOR: Hay, you shoved me.
GARFIELD [narrating]: I like to do more than shove ya'! I'd like to...
JUNIOR [singing]: Daa do Te do Te do.
GARFIELD: Huh? I wonder what this is? Oh well, whatever it is, it probably hasn't been invented yet. Then again, what do I know?
GARFIELD: All dressed up and no place to go, huh Junior? What am I laughing about? I should be conserving oxygen. These crypts are air tight. I only have enough air to last about... Let see this crypt is about 80 by 40, let see a 20 foot ceiling. Ta ta da ta da ta da. I'll run out of air in ruffly 73 years.
GARFIELD: Slave dog! Boy am I glade to see you. I'll see to it theirs a little something extra in your next pay check. I owe you one old buddy. If theirs anything I can ever do for you just let me know. You know slave dog, its friends like you that keep this tired old world going round.
BLACK BART: Be a good dog and run over to the pyramids to see how things are going.
GARFIELD: Yes sir. Right away sir. Anything you wish sir. Your wish is my command sir. I'd like to meet you in a dark alley sometime sir.

Garfield: His 9 Lives
My name is Garfield and this is my friend Odie. I know cats have nine lives and I certainly appreciate the opportunity to have them.
Life no 1 : Cave Cat
In my first life I formulated many of my likes and dislikes. I dislike my rock bed. On the other hand, you wouldn't believe the size of the pteranodon drumsticks.
Life no 2 : King Cat
Life no 3 : In the Garden
Arf. My third life was my favorite. My body grew old but I never, never, never, grew up.
Life no 4 : Court Musician
I learned to think on my feet in my forth life. Thinking was okay I guess. But now I avoid it when ever possible.
Life no 5 : Stunt Cat
Life number five was short.
Life no 6 : Diana's Piano
Six must be my lucky number because that's the life I fell in love with music. I also fell in love with a girl who played the piano just for me.
Life no 7 : Lab Animal
In my seventh life I was a laboratory animal. To this day every time I see a test tube I throw up.
Life no 8 : Garfield
All that I ever was made me what I am in my eight life. Somehow, it's falling short of my expectations.
Life no 9 : Space Cat
I'd like to think I'd live forever but hay, I'm only human. Here's a sneak preview of my ninth life.
