TV Shows - Garfield and Friends

Garfield and Friends is an American animated television series based on the comic strip Garfield by Jim Davis. This show was produced by Film Roman, in association with United Feature Syndicate and Paws, Inc., and ran on CBS Saturday mornings from 1988 to 1994, and on Nickelodeon from 1997 to 2000. The show's seven seasons make it one of the longest running Saturday morning cartoons in history, with most only lasting one or two seasons. Regular segments featured both Garfield and U.S. Acres, a lesser-known comic strip also created by Davis. The latter was retitled Orson's Farm for foreign syndication. 242 Garfield segments and 121 U.S. Acres segments were produced. There were two "Garfield" segments on each show, two "quickie" shorts based on Sunday comic strips, and in between was a U.S. Acres segment. A total of 121 half-hours were produced, and all have been released in the U.S. on five DVD sets by Fox Home Entertainment. The first season aired in a half-hour format. In the second season, it switched to an hour-length format, showing two episodes each week. However, in the show's last season, the second half-hour of the show featured either an episode from the previous season or one of Garfield's TV specials.

1 Great cartoon that never went bad. It was one of the longest running Saturday morning cartoons ever yet they kept it fresh. The US Acres cartoons were hit and miss but I enjoyed pretty much every one of the Garfield segments. The show was quite a bit better than the comic strip since Mark Evanier wrote most episodes, he is a famous humorous comic writer best known for Groo with Sergio Aragones. -- Submitted By: (loverocket) on July 23, 2015, 6:10 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 I really liked the Orson Pig segments even though they often broke into song. I really liked the duck with the flotation device with a head that copied his facial expressions. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on April 26, 2012, 11:26 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Loved Garfield & Friends when it aired Saturday mornings. I love Picnic Panic (first episode w/ singing ants), Rainy Day Robot (Roy losing his cool with the rain-making robot kills me), and many others. RIP Lorenzo Music - you will not be forgotten. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on November 27, 2010, 8:54 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 I don't think you should take the movie into consideration when attempting to determine whether or not the TV series "Garfield and Friends" ever boned. The movie is in a whole different spectrum than this show and I think you could put it into consideration if it were "Garfield and Friends the Movie" instead of the "Crappy CGI Adventures of a Cat That Was Once Garfield." I think if you stick to what formula the show used it never really changed for its run: Garfield short, US Acres short and Garfield short. It was a fun show when I was a kid and since I don't recall the new characters of Game Boy or the Great Gazoo ever showing up to spice up the later seasons I'd say it never really boned. -- Submitted By: (dr_sarcastor) on September 11, 2010, 4:34 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 The show was great and I loved it. The movie wasn't that good and I will say that, but I also want to say that it had nothing to do with the Saturday morning cartoon on CBS that came before it. Both were based on the comic strip by Jim Davis and were produced differently and at different times, so I consider the movie separate. -- Submitted By: (jconifer7) on December 25, 2009, 10:50 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

7 There's something I'd like to know. In the movie, why was Garfield CGI instead of looking like he did in this cartoon, hmmmm?! Also, RIP Lorenzo Music, voice of Garfield in this classic cartoon. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on May 20, 2009, 12:02 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
