* EvilRoy: Well, not exactly ''evil'', but he is a huge troublemaker, and he plays the villain in many of Orson's ImagineSpot daydreams.

* ShoutOut: [[TropeOverdosed LOTS.]]
** On one episode, after the opening sequence finished, Garfield said "[[Series/WheelOfFortune I'd like to buy a vowel, please.]]"
*** Another post-opening sequence line was "The Garfield Guarantee: No [[Franchise/{{Transformers}} giant robots]] or [[WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs annoying little blue people]]."
*** Still another was "If you change the channel, you will never see your dog again.", referencing the famous "Buy this magazine or we'll kill this dog" January 1973 cover of ''National Lampoon''.
** In one episode, Garfield opens the door and says "Hello, this is Garfield, your doorman."
** Wade: "Oh ''Series/{{Jeopardy}}'' Oh '''Double Jeopardy!!''' Oh '''FINAL JEOPARDY!'''"
** Cactus Jake is a homage to pretty much every cowboy movie ever made. He's even voiced by Pat Buttram, who made a career out of playing these sorts of characters.
** Also doubling as a BrickJoke: in one episode, Garfield & Nermal contend with mutant guppies, who they defeat by chasing them back into the sewer. Said guppies then appear in the subsequent US Acres Quickie; after scaring Wade and Orson, one guppies turns to his fellows and says "Come on guys, let's go see if we can get a guest shot on the ''WesternAnimation/MuppetBabies'', whaddaya say?" [[note]] ''Muppet Babies'' also aired on CBS at the time, in the slot immediately before ''Garfield''.[[/note]]
** In "Clash Of The Titans", Garfield asks if the characters can stop at ''WesternAnimation/{{Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles|1987}}'' so they can get a pizza.[[note]] ''TMNT '87'' also aired on CBS at the time, in the slot immediately following ''Garfield''.[[/note]]
** "Invasion of The Big Robots" was a parody right from the start. So, take a moment, and see if you can figure out [[WesternAnimation/TheTransformers what they're parodying]]. Also, the last scenes of the short end with Garfield ending up in ''Disney/{{Bambi}}''!
** In Temp Trouble, Roy asks Mrs Pig [[KevinMeaney Aloysius]] [[InkSuitActor Pig's]] mom, "It's Saturday morning. Do you know where your children are?"
** In "Much Ado About Lanolin", the scene where Lanolina trips on her dress is quite similar to the scene in ''WesternAnimation/SantaClausIsCominToTown'' where Burgermeister Meisterburger trips on a duck in exactly the same way. Lanolina, however, did not get her foot in a cast, but yelled at how the stairs were defective.
** One rather silly episode has the entire episode purposely having animation errors. At the very end, Garfield leaves and Odie follows, except Odie is ''NewspaperComic/{{Marmaduke}}''
** In "Flat Tired", while deciding who to get for the cartoon when Garfield is too tired, the director initially says "Get me [[Franchise/{{TheMuppets}} Kermit The Frog]] on the phone," before choosing [[ADayInTheLimelight Odie]]. Also a bit of an in-joke, since WesternAnimation/MuppetBabies was also on CBS at the time.
