Garfield: The Lost Levels is a game that was exclusive to Sega's paid "Sega Channel" Service on the Sega Genesis/Sega Mega Drive, which contained downloadable games, cheat codes, and tips.

The game contains three levels cut from the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive version of "Garfield: Caught in the Act".

"Bonehead the Barbarian" (a viking themed level); the Game Gear Version of Caught in the Act includes this level and has a snow theme, it is possible that this snow-viking theme was used in Garfield: The Lost Levels. A user named Li Wang in the "Lost Levels" forms says there was a "snow level" in the Garfield: The Lost Levels which could possibly be Bonehead the Barbarian.

There was a cut train segment in the Catsablanca level in the Sega Genesis version of Caught in the Act, it is possible that the cut train segment was in "Garfield: The Lost Levels."

"Slobbin Hood" (a forest-Robin Hood level); This level is also included The Game Gear version of Caught in the Act.

The reason of the Sega Genesis version of "Garfield: Caught in the Act" was split into two ("Garfield: The Lost Levels") could be due to Caught in the Act being one of Sega of America's biggest project. Caught in the Act was not the only game to be split in half, the Sega Saturn game "Clockwork Knight" was also split in half.

As of the now, the game has not resurfaced onto the internet, possibly because nobody thought about dumping the game's ROM. Also note that the Genesis/Mega Drive does not keep the game's data when the console is turned off, instead it deletes the game data, making it impossible to keep the game.

Also the game itself is (as far as I recall) broadcast in fragments and since nobody was able to archive the games, they're likely somewhere in the vaults of SEGA. And we all know how good SEGA are at keeping their source codes safe... Didn't they have to port a Sonic game nearly from scratch because they lost the original code?

I remember playing this game as a kid. One of the lost levels was a space-themed level, which is actually playable on MS-DOS and Windows port of the game. There was also a snow level, as was mentioned here.
