  • Garfield and Friends is an American animated television series based on the comic strip Garfield by Jim Davis and ran on CBS Saturday mornings from September 17, 1988 to December 10, 1994, with reruns airing until October 7, 1995. Seven seasons of the series were produced. In addition to the segments featuring Garfield, the series also included segments featuring the characters from U.S. Acres, a comic strip Davis was drawing concurrently with Garfield when Garfield and Friends premiered on television. Like the comic strip these were based on, the animated segments were re-titled Orson's Farm for viewers outside of the United States (taking the name of their main character, Orson Pig). Although Davis stopped producing new strips of U.S. Acres/Orson's Farm seven months after Garfield and Friends debuted, the characters continued to appear on television until the series ceased production. A total of 121 episodes were made, each consisting of two Garfield segments and one U.S. Acres segment, totaling 242 Garfield segments and 121 U.S. Acres segments. All episodes have been released in the U.S. on five DVD sets by 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment. The first season aired in a half-hour format. Starting with the second season, it switched to an hour-length format, showing two episodes each week. During the last season, while the series was still an hour long, the second half-hour of the show featured either an episode from the previous season or one of the Garfield TV specials. On May 25, 2016, 9 Story Media Group acquired the worldwide distribution rights to Garfield and Friends and its specials. On August 6, 2019, Viacom and Nickelodeon (both of which are now part of ViacomCBS with the merger of Viacom and CBS on December 4, 2019) bought the rights to the Garfield franchise.
