In 1984, Jean Chalopin made a mistake that would soon become a very common trend in DiC’s catalogue. Unlike the actually very good cartoon also feautring a funny, sassy fat orange cat, Heathcliff is just a confusing mess of bad writing and jokes without any pacing or timing. Somehow, it holds a 6.8 on iMDB, but that said Super Show also holds a 6.3 on the same site. I’m not sure how either of them have such a high rating, but I completely understand Heathcliff being held somewhat higher than Super Show. Oof.
Opening music is the credits theme from Garfield and Friends.

Intro and History music is “Train Machine” and “Mad Art in Museum”, both from the Inspector Gadget soundtrack.
