Garfield and Friends

The everyday misadventures of a lazy, fat, orange tabby cat named Garfield; who’s primary interests are eating, sleeping and kicking Odie the housedog off the table. Meanwhile his owner, dim-witted, un-hip, cartoonist Jon Arbuckle tries his luck with the ladies and thanks to his own ineptness and the efforts of his cat, succeeds in failing miserably every time.

animated series Garfield and Friends © Film RomanThe series also had characters from Jim Davis’ other comic series: U.S. Acres (AKA Orson’s Farm) appearing in segments (one per episode). These were usually separate from the Garfield segments, although at times some bleed would occur between the two.

Garfield and Friends had three very different opening themes during it seven season run: "Friends are There," a song-and-dance number, ran through the first and second seasons. "We’re Ready to Party," an upbeat conga style piece with various clips from the episodes played from the third through to the sixth season. In the USA, the seventh and final season had a rap-based number.*

*Please note that these are not the official titles of the theme songs.
