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

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.

A cartoon classic for everyone!
28 January 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

"Garfield and Friends" is a great show, based on a great comic strip. I just loved how funny, creative and original it was. If I had a disappointment though, and this has been mentioned by many other reviewers, I didn't think the "US Acres" (or "Orson's Farm") segments were as witty or as fun. But there were some fun characters, Wade the Duck was my favourite, and there have been some good moments. But everything else is first rate. The cartoon animation is wonderful, really nice to look at and very colourful. The theme tune is wonderful, and hummable even after a long time. And I love the characters, the lazy Garfield, adorable mischievous Oadie, narcissistic Nermal and goofy Binky The Clown. And the voice work was superb, Lorenzo Music(R.I.P) owned the character of Garfield and part of the reason why I love the show so much. The scripts are dry and witty, full of hilarious asides uttered by Garfield mostly, and the story lines are a lot of fun. In conclusion, this is a great cartoon classic, with something for everyone! 9/10 Bethany Cox
