* AdaptationDisplacement: The ''U.S. Acres'' shorts on ''Garfield and Friends'' are far more well-known than the strip itself.
* BaseBreaker: Some fans like Comic Strip Dumb Bo more, cause they thought he was more funnier while others love the Cartoon 'Surfer' Bo more, because he had more depth and was more of a GeniusDitz than dumb.
* CantUnHearIt: In later strips, it seems Bo was written with the surfer accent he had on the show.
* DudeNotFunny: Comic strip version Wade Duck only existing as a senseless ChewToy and getting hurt the most out of anybody "for the lulz". (he wasn't such a pointless ChewToy in most of ''WesternAnimation/GarfieldAndFriends''). It's much more funnier when Wade just gets scared.
* {{Fanon}}: Many fans believe that ''U.S. Acres'' takes place in the same universe as ''Garfield'', and that the farm is that of the Arbuckle family. [[http://garfield.com/comic/2001-04-22 This]] ''Garfield'' strip is particularly convincing evidence (Booker, Roy and Orson are present).
** Plus two characters who look exactly like a miscolored Cody and Blue.
** A book of some ''Garfield'' Christmas stories actually proved that ''U.S. Acres'' and ''Garfield'' do indeed live in the same world, though the farm on which Orson and the gang live is actually next door to the Arbuckle family's.
** Also contributing to this is that the first part was canon in GarfieldAndFriends.
* GeniusBonus: According to research from Yale University, people who have love-hate relationships is due to their poor self-esteem. Wade has poor self-esteem and he has a love-hate relationship with Roy! There are moments when Roy shows the esteem issue as well,( "Banana Nose" for example), it's just not as upfront or often as Wade.
* HilariousInHindsight: Several moments in the strips have been made this due to various episodes of ''WesternAnimation/GarfieldAndFriends''.
** There was one where Roy told Wade not to eat an apple. [[ShoutOut Wade asks]] [[Literature/SnowWhiteandtheSevenDwarfs if the apple was poison]], but Roy said that it was his snack. A ''U.S. Acres'' two-part segment of ''Friends'' featured the gang acts out Snow White, putting Wade in the titular role.
*** Also in one comic [[http://garfield.com/us-acres/2012-05-11 Wade wanted to know if Goldilocks meets a prince in the storybook]]...guess who Snow Wade meets in the said two parter?
** In the storybook "A Most Special Easter Egg", published in 1989, Booker's outfit is a green vest with blue bowtie. Aloysius Pig would join ''Garfield and Friends'' 5 years later, and he wears the same outfit.
** [[http://garfield.com/us-acres/1987-07-09 In this strip, Sheldon hoped to be a turtle.]] In the episode "Scrambled Eggs", he's mistaken for one.
* ViewerGenderConfusion: Orson had long, feminine eyelashes in the first half of the strip's run and Booker called him "Mom", due to the fact that he sat on Booker and Sheldon's eggs before they hatched.
* TheWoobie: It's hard not to feel sorry for Wade. [[http://garfield.com/us-acres/2010-08-23 It's like the universe is out to get him.]] In one strip, [[http://garfield.com/us-acres/2010-02-05 he is overjoyed when Bo offers to be his friend without the pranks]], considering all the times he's been picked on.
** The pranks aren't so bad in the cartoon version. At least Roy doesn't usually physically hurt Wade in the cartoon version. Lots of stuff in the comic book version are always out to hurt poor Wade! Roy's pranks at least in the cartoon version are nothing.
