* CriticalResearchFailure: In one episode, Garfield calls an Apatosaurus skeleton a Brontosaurus, but that's not the mistake (even though it's a common one to make). No, the mistake is it's ''razor sharp teeth'', despite it being stated to be a herbivore.

* TookALevelInJerkass: Jon got pretty damn sadistic of nowhere when trying to get Garfield and Odie a bath, to the point where you're begging for them to turn the tables on him already.



** One episode was particularly bad about this, [[IdiotBall having a bunch of fish stand around wondering aloud for over a minute about how to get air underwater while Garfield and Odie drown]], and as soon as they accomplish that, they [[HurricaneOfPuns start making jokes about how fish like going to school and drink bubble tea]].

* {{Misblamed}}: Given how often the show is accused of lacking the same wit and personality that ''Garfield and Friends'' had, it may come to a surprise to many that several of the original show's creative team like Mark Evanier and Jim Davis himself actually wrote episodes of ''The Garfield Show''.

** Also, it could be argued that the humor is much more tame, less funny, too many 4th wall jokes and forced aesops comapred to WesternAnimation/GarfieldAndFriends.

* ViewersAreGoldfish: [[TropesAreTools Zig-zags]] to an almost insulting degree. One episode will [[ParentalBonus make references to old movies]], add in some fourth-wall breaking, and the next will act as if the viewer is a preschooler, constantly [[IncrediblyLamePun make puns]] and goofy faces/sound effects to desperately catch their attention.

* TheWoobie: usally Odie, Garfield himself had some moments such as the episode "The Land of Hold"

* WhatTheHellCastingAgency: This may take you by surprise, but ''FrankWelker'' performing Garfield didn't sit well with some fans. To quote [[TVTrash The Rowdy Reviewer]]:

* TakeThatScrappy: Nermal gets this every now and again.
** In "Parrot Blues", Nermal breaks down in tears because Paxton called out on him for his conceit and told him that he was a sickening sight to those around him.
** "Super Me" has Garfield and Ultra Super Powerful Guy leave him on the moon after pestering them to tell him who's the real super hero (as Garfield was dressed as the superhero).
