Storyline

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.

Trivia

Creator Jim Davis originally wanted to make a series based on his comic strip "U.S. Acres". But CBS insisted that "Garfield" be made the star of the series with the "U.S. Acres" characters becoming the "Friends" of the title. See more »

Quotes

Garfield: [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 groans]
Garfield: Odie, you have a head of cabbage!

The best cartoon adaptation of a comic in this world!
24 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I first heard of this show in 2007, when it aired on Boomerang, a few weeks before it got canned. The first episode I ever saw was "China Cat/Cock-A-Doodle-Dandy/Beach Blanket Bonzo", and the only other one I saw was "Peace and Quiet/Wanted: Wade/Garfield Goes Hawaiian". One day, we got a coupon in a Laptop Meal at KFC for a discount on the Behind The Scenes DVD, so me and my sister got that DVD and were obsessed with the show. But once I was addicted into Pokemon, I rarely watched the show. That was until April 2012, when I decided to look on a website about television and saw the Season 7 opening theme linked to on a page. That night, I watched some Garfield segments. A month after that, I discovered U.S. Acres after seeing a 5-second clip of it attached to a commercial break, and thought it looked cute. I was right-the segment turned out to be better than Garfield! Which brings me to my review: The Garfield segments are based on the comic strip by Jim Davis about a very peculiar cat who doesn't act like other cats. He eats human food like lasagna, he sleeps a lot, he is fat, he doesn't chase mice, he hates spiders and dogs, and we're able to hear his thoughts. He goes on many misadventures, like visiting a little girl's mansion, asking viewers to find mistakes in his cartoon, meeting a copy of himself, celebrating holidays, and re-telling classic stories. U.S. Acres is about a pig named Orson who loves to read, and his wacky friends. They vary from a duck who is afraid of nearly everything named Wade, a "prankster-gangster" rooster named Roy, an egg with feet named Sheldon, a grumpy female sheep named Lanolin, a "cool dude" sheep named Bo, a baby chick named Booker, 3 evil pigs who are his brothers, a weasel who wants to steal chickens, a duck with buck-teeth named Fred, a chick girl named Chloe and my favorite character, a pig named Aloysius who is voiced by the famous comedian Kevin Meaney who works for The Network. They go on many misadventures too, but they mostly teach lessons, like not breaking the law and to not make fun of other people, and re-do stories, like Snow White, Cinderella, The Count Of Monte Cristo, and even classic nursery rhymes! This cartoon will make you laugh, and it's one of the best out there!
