Ready to Party is the second opening theme from Garfield and Friends, which came in two versions.
Like the first theme song, it was written by Desirée Goyette.
Version 1 (Seasons 3-5)
The theme begins the same way as Friends Are There, with Garfield tap dancing across a fence and turning on the Victrola, with an announcer stating "Ladies and gentlemen, Garfield and Friends!". The song starts right after the Victrola is turned on. Clips from several episodes and quickies from the first two seasons are shown, as well as a brief clip from Garfield: His 9 Lives. The title card sequence begins with Booker in the middle of writing "and Friends" under "Garfield" before underlining it. Garfield pops out of the square as the song concludes, says a quip, and waves his finger to close the opening.
Version 2 (Seasons 6-7)
The theme starts in a theater (a clip from "The Garfield Opera"), with the same sound effects and voiceover as before. Some of the clips from the first version are retained, while others are replaced with new ones from the fifth and sixth seasons, as well as a brief clip from season 2's "Health Feud". The title card sequence is identical that of to Version 1.
