Cancelled Movies. Wiki

Garfield's Judgment Day was an unfinished, planned Garfield animated feature film that was planned to be released sometime between 1980-1990, and would have been directed by Jim Davis, the creator of the iconic Garfield comics.


The story would have been about a storm threatening to hit the town and Garfield proposing that the pets break their taboo of talking to humans to warn them.

Why It Was Cancelled[]

  1. No animation studio was willing to animate it, due to how offset they thought the story was.
  2. Some executives thought it did not grasp the appropriate and original source material.


  • Davis tried rewriting it as a special, before eventually giving up and releasing it as a stand alone picture book in 1990 of the same name and story; Garfield's Judgement Day.
  • The film version was permanently cancelled.
