Cartoon series based on Jim Davis' popular comic strip. The star of the series was Garfield, a lazy feline whose only desires in life were lasanga, catnaps and kicking his hapless canine companion, Odie, off the table. The show also starred Garfield's hopelessly-single owner, Jon Arbuckle. Each Garfield adventure featured Garfield's adventures and run-ins with the cast of semi-regulars (including Neurmal, an irksome kitty; Binky the Clown and the mice which inhabited Jon's house); most were satires on American life and pop culture. Each show also featured "U.S. Acres," another of Davis' strips; this strip was set in a barnyard and featured the adventures of such characters as Orson Pig, Wade Duck, Roy Rooster, Bo and Lanolin the sheep, Booker the chick and Sheldon, an unhatched egg.

The US Acres cartoons (known as Orson's Farm in other countries) were based on another comic also drawn by Garfield cartoonist Jim Davis in 1986. It was picked up by a then-unprecedented 505 newspapers by United Features Syndicate (the same comic newspaper publisher that runs the Garfield comics). The comic strip itself didn't do as well as its more-successful counterpart Garfield and only ran from 1986 until its final strip on 15 April 1989. Ironically with the series cancellation in 1995, this means that the US Acres cartoons lasted for 7 years (over twice as long as the original comic strips they were based from). There has however been a recent demand for re-releasing the US Acres comic strip, and in October 2010, the comic strips were re-released as web comics and can be found on the Garfield.com website.

[Odie takes him to a head of cabbage, after telling him it was a watch]
Odie, that is not a watch, it's a head of cabbage, there is a difference. You do not tell time with a watch, you make cole slaw out of it.
Odie, you have a head of cabbage!

I definitely remember this cartoon as one of the bests out there along with the Pink Panther. I mean, who could forget those episodes? There was one where Garfield, Jon, and Odie go out to get a car from the high-bargaining, high-convincing salesman Mr. Swindler (It's getting tougher and tougher to make an honest dollar). There was also the one where Garfield wakes up on the wrong cartoon with a He-man/Transformers atmosphere (See them to find out what Gafield does). Otherwise, Garfield is just another world's laziest cat.
There's also the U.S. Acres (Orson's Farm) segments, based on another strip by Jim Davis preferably for young children (which explains why it aims toward a younger audience). They were great as well, and I liked all the characters (especially Bo and Roy). It was yet another masterpiece in there. And to conclude, there would be a Garfield Quickie based on the comic strips Jim Davis made. I also heard of hidden, or unsyndicated, episodes that never seemed to air on television (but they might appear on the videos/DVDs) All in all, this is most definitely the best cartoon show ever made! Unlike all that violent and vulgar cartoons they're crowding up with nowadays, especially anime, or Japanese animation shows
Still this is my favorite one of cartoons shows in all!!! See if you can find it!
