The strip, begun in March 1986, was not a success (especially compared to ''Garfield''), and it came to an end in April 1989. As a result, ''U.S.Acres'' and its cast are much better-known in [[AnimatedAdaptation animated form]], due to appearing in ''WesternAnimation/GarfieldAndFriends''. There, it existed for seven years as [[ThreeShorts the "B" in that series's A-B-A format]] that's right, the animated version lasted more than twice as long as the strip did!

The strip, begun in March 1986, was not a success (especially compared to ''Garfield''), and it came to an end just three years and one month later in April 1989. As a result, ''U.S. Acres'' and its cast are much better-known in [[AnimatedAdaptation animated form]], due to appearing in ''WesternAnimation/GarfieldAndFriends''. There, it existed for seven years as [[ThreeShorts the "B" in that series's A-B-A format]] that's right, the animated version lasted more than twice as long as the strip did!
