Garfield & Friends Season 5/6

Postby drewns » Sat Aug 29, 2015 6:44 pm

Hi,

There are 3 episodes (segments) of Garfield & Friends listed in Season 5 that actually aired in Season 6 and need to be moved there. They are:

49 Jon the Barbarian
50 Uncle Roy to the Rescue
51 The Kitten and the Council

See http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1589772/ for details.

Thank you!

For such an old series a better source than IMDB would be required for a request like this.

Here you go. Please note that the listings for these box sets represent the official seasons and air date episode numbers and NOT the episode numbers that appear on the DVDs. There are 5 "Volumes" that include all 7 Seasons of the show, so it's a little bit convoluted. I'm trying to straighten things out on thetvdb.com right now, following the rules regarding the DVD order listings. I am changing the "DVD Season" to match the actual aired seasons, while keeping the order that the episodes appear on the DVDs (differs slightly from the aired order in a couple of places). I hope to also go back through and update descriptions (where needed), update production codes, and possibly add absolute numbers and guest stars.

Also, someone has left a blank row at the end of Season 7 that needs to be deleted.

Thanks again for your help!

I want to clarify something you've mentioned here. DVD ordering should match the order on the DVDs themselves while aired ordering should be left exactly how it is, save for a few season changes. I suspect you mistyped that bit am I correct?

I apologize for the confusion. What I meant was that on the official site, the seasons and episode numbers are shown in the order they aired, even though the site is selling the DVD volumes. On the DVD volumes, the episode numbering and ordering differs slightly from the aired order in a couple of places. I have corrected the aired order on thetvdb.com where needed (it was incorrect on some of the later seasons).

To answer your question, all of the "DVD Episode Number" fields appear to be correct, and I have left them in the order that they appear on the DVDs themselves. What was NOT correct was the "DVD Season" fields, which were numbered according to the DVD volume numbers. As per the DVD Order rules (http://www.thetvdb.com/wiki/index.php?title=DVD_Order), I have renumbered the "DVD Season" fields so that they are correct. Here is the rule I'm following: "Some series are released in volumes rather than season sets. Sometimes volumes span a single season over many releases or combine multiple seasons into a single volume. The order of episodes on these DVDs can be considered a correct order but the episodes should still be broken down into regular seasons and not separated into volumes as those who record the programs from TV may still want their episodes in the correct watching order." So rather than their being 5 "DVD Seasons" shown on thetvdb.com, there are now 7 total, as there were 7 seasons of the show.

An additional challenge is that, as per the site rules for cartoons, the "Aired Order" list breaks down each episode into three episode numbers, even though the three individual segments always appeared on the same episode. This leads to confusion (in my opinion) with aired order episode numbering using numbers that are not seen on any official episode lists or on the DVDs. Regardless of opinion on this issue, I have left the "Aired Order" episodes segmented and numbered according to the rules.

@hikaricore or another mod: Any luck with this? I'm working on my collection and was hoping to have this corrected soon. I appreciate your help.

Thank you,

Sorry for bumping this fairly old post, but my daughter went to watch this on my Plex server, and I noticed some of the episodes no longer have metadata because the DVD season number is incorrect.

I went through a while back and updated thetvdb to match the 5 DVD volumes, now I see it has all been changed. There was never a release of the individual seasons, only the 5 volumes. So I don't understand why the DVD season numbers were all change to include a 6 and 7 DVD season number. I'm kinda upset that I spent all the time updating the site to only see someone else changed it, and now my Plex server is does not have the correct metadata.

Mods, can we get some decision on this? This was my original topic on this, and at the time the mod, ferby, seemed to indicate that the DVD order I provided was correct (viewtopic.php?f=18&t=16964&p=62353).

Thanks,
