He swore he didn't know Garfield the Cat from Charlie the Tuna. Nevertheless, the former folk singer and comedy writer with the voice once described as "kind of cutely stupid" became television's animated Garfield. Lorenzo Music, who was also the voice of Carlton, the unseen drunk doorman of the TV series "Rhoda," as well as a crash dummy and a pig Latin-spouting tout for the Queen Mary, has died. He was 64. Music died Saturday of bone cancer at his home in Los Angeles' Hancock Park.

Just a few years ago, he didn't know Garfield, the cat, from Charlie, the tuna. Today, he is Garfield the cat--or at least the voice of Garfield. Long before that, he was television's occasionally heard but never seen Carlton the Doorman. And very soon, Lorenzo Music--that's his honest-to-goodness name--expects his voice to make him a millionaire. Music has that sort of silly, kind of dopey-sounding commercial voice that has attracted the ear of listeners and ad agencies nationwide.

Suddenly, this summer, cat fanciers are feline groovy at the movies. Dogs for the moment are taking a back seat to the preferred movie pet. And it's a long time coming. Frequently typecast as bad, cats have long been clawing their way back to the movie stardom they enjoyed in the 1950s and '60s in "Rhubarb," "Breakfast at Tiffany's" and "That Darn Cat!"

More than once upon a time there has been, in movies, a cruel plot to destroy the world as we know it. Only this time, the good guys are so amazingly incompetent that the happily-ever-after ending to the story is always in jeopardy. "Twice Upon a Time," a funny animated fantasy film produced by George Lucas, chronicles a nightmare-maker's quest to plunge the world into a permanent bad dream, and the would-be heroes from the land of Frivoli who scramble to stop him.

One of the more intriguing characters on ABC's hit series "Home Improvement" is Wilson, the neighbor who dispenses philosophy and advice to Tim Taylor (Tim Allen) with wit and wry humor. Wilson is portrayed by Earl Hindman. But unless you call Hindman's agent and ask for a glossy photograph, you won't know what he looks like. Wilson is always obscured, usually by the fence that divides his property from the Taylors'.

An associate of Murder Inc. chief Irv "Gotti" Lorenzo, whose music label is under federal investigation for alleged money laundering, was taken into custody Thursday as a suspect in the shooting of a New York police captain. Tyran Moore surrendered after a three-hour standoff with dozens of police officers at a residence in the Canarsie neighborhood of Brooklyn. Moore, whose street name is Tah Tah, gained notoriety last year in a lyric on "Guess Who's Back?" by 50 Cent, the Queens rap star.

Their voices move imaginations, widen smiles, even refresh our fantasies. So we pump up the volume when Casey's bedroom chuckle and Jack's easy nuances make foreplay of radio commercials for Shedd's Country Crock. Or Beringer Wines. Or 3-Day Blinds. Clearly, their marriage must be an endless honeymoon. In our minds, Tom Bodett is a fictional character. Or he could be an actor taking a cue from Garrison Keillor's cracker barrel. Maybe he's the president of Motel 6 looking to break into show biz.

The world doesn't deserve to last much longer. What we've done is just awful, pollution and crime and all this stuff. I've lived in Los Angeles all my life. But the air is bad, and it's just all around pretty much dirty. I want to live near Seattle, it's so neat. Maybe in a small town. Civilized but small, where restaurants stay open till 9 o'clock. I don't want to be rich, not really.
