* CounterpartComparison: Aloysius Pig is pink and wears a bowtie, hat and a jacket that exposes his skin, talks in a funny-sounding accented voice and sings a song about himself, just like [[WesternAnimation/InsideOut Bing Bong]]. Ironically, one of the actors originally considered for the role of Bing Bong was Kevin Meaney, Aloysius' voice actor!

** After Kevin Meaney's death, the end of "Kiddie Korner" became this. The last thing Kevin Meaney tweeted was "Some last minute advice for Hilary: Light your hair on fire! Be crazy and tell him he's fired! Hit him in the face with a pie!". [[spoiler: Aloysius' last line in U.S. Acres ever was "Are those pies"?, and he winds up getting hit by pies.]]



** There was a weasel who sounds and acts like the one in the US Acres segments in the ''WesternAnimation/TheMagicAdventuresOfMumfie'' episode "Pop Goes The Weasel". The same episode also contains a RakeTake similar to the one in "Wanted: Wade".

*SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: "Binky Gets Canceled...Again!" [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin As the title implies,]] Binky's popular kids' show is canceled after parents complain that the program isn't educational. Binky points out that he does something different: "I make children laugh! I entertain!" The station manager then declares that entertaining simply isn't enough for children's shows anymore -- they need to have "social content" to get airtime. This seems to be a reaction against {{Anvilicious}} programs that treat kids like idiots while hammering home countless Aesops. It's not subtle, but it does make the legitimate claim that it's OK for children to simply have fun and enjoy themselves while watching television, rather than constantly having to learn something from it.

* CounterpartComparison: Both Roy and Wade, plus Rei and Usagi from ''Anime/SailorMoon'' seem to have some similarities. Both duos are [[VitriolicBestBuds friends who fight with each other but care about each other]]. Sometimes they fight, other times they act like friends and got more closer as the episodes went on. In episode "Goody-Go-Round", Wade manages to pull a prank on Roy by giving him really hot gum and fire came out of Roy's mouth. In episode 51 of Sailor Moon (the Japanese version only) Usagi pulls the same prank on Rei except with a sandwich with really hot mustard and fire also came out of Rei's mouth. Orson can even be considered Ami's counterpart since they're both calm [[BookWorm Bookworms]] that had to get their two friends to stop fighting.
** The U.S.Acres and [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic My Little Pony: Friendship is magic]] characters seem to have some similarities in personalities. Both Orson and Twilight Sparkle [[BookWorm Bookworms]] leader types who makes mistakes now and then. Roy and Rainbow Dash are both [[AntiHero AntiHeros]] who are full of themselves but help their friends in anyway they can. Wade and Fluttershy are both good-hearted [[LovableCoward cowards]] who helps save their friends when they need to. Lanolin is a mix of Apple Jack and Rarity. Both she and Apple Jack are both tough, hard working farm girls and Rarity seems to have more in common with the "imaginary Lanolin" in Orson's fantasies. And both Bo and Pinkie Pie are very friendly and want people to be happy(Pinkie Pie is also like Bo's comic strip counterpart as well).
** Roy and Wade, and Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy as duos seem to have some similarities with their friendships. Both duos seemed/implied to have knew each other in their younger years before they joined the main cast. And over time in both series, both, duo's friendships developed and became closer friends.
** When you compare Garfield's main LoveInterests Arlene and Penelope, it's like the case with Ash, Misty and May from Pokemon. Both Arlene and Misty are strong assertive [[TsunDere turnderes]] who argue with their male counterparts, while both Peneople and May appeared second and are the [[TheCutie sweet girls]] who gets along more smoothly with the main character.
* CriticalResearchFailure: Although Roy Rooster is an antagonist(though not as much as Orson's mean older brothers or the weasel) some fans keep on saying he's a 'bully' when WordOfGod pointed out that he's not a bully, just an irritant. Although it may have been understandable if fans were just going by the comic book version(though Garfield.com and U.S.Acres facebook both made it clear in Roy's bio that he's not a bully), people who don't bother to watch the show/remember it clearly just go and assume he's a bully, when people who watch/know the show well knows that Roy's a 'class clown' compared to Orson's brothers who are the real bullies.

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: The episode "Video Airlines" screams this nowadays in the era of optical discs, video-on-demand services and the fact that many video stores have closed down.
