    I've been trying to Rip Garfield the search for pooky sounds/music , but apparently it doesn't use the sappy engine and Gba mus riper won't rip it. Is there a way to rip the music properly?

    There are a few known alternative formats for the GBA ( http://knzl.de/krawall/ being one, though probably not used in this case), and most of those that are not are usually pretty close to the hardware ( http://belogic.com/gba/ ) or some kind of known format (there is a mod player library somewhere).

    Few people really look into the licensed games like this and I am not seeing anything on http://www.hcs64.com/mboard/forum.php either.

    To that end you are going to have to go manual, I already linked a great audio resource and http://problemkaputt.de/gbatek.htm#gbasoundcontroller would be the other good thing to look at.
    Alternatively if you just want a rip then it might be time to play in an emulator. You can hopefully drop the necessary channels to get a clean rip, if not then you might have to look into the audio engine as far as disabling/breaking certain tracks (far easier than working it up to the state where you have tools to rip whole tracks).
