The star of the series is 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 Garfields hopelessly-single owner, Jon Arbuckle. Each episode is divided into stories about either Garfield and Odie, or Orson the Pig and the trouble they get into.

[show]In the episode "Best Of Breed", the paper Garfield holds up reveals that Jon, Garfield and Odie live in Muncie, Indiana. And in the episode "The Pizza Patrol", Jon's street address is revealed to be 357 Shady Grove Lane. Thus, Jon's full address is: 357 Shady Grove Lane Muncie, In 47305 (47305 is Muncie's actual Zip Code).

[show]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.
