The characters in Jim Davis's [[HeAlsoDid other]] comic strip, ''ComicStrip/{{US Acres}}'', and its animated adaptation on ''WesternAnimation/GarfieldAndFriends''.

!!Tropes shared by all/some of the Main Characters
* BadassCrew: They certainly are in the "Garfield's Defense" games. They went and helped Garfield attack the aliens without fear (even Wade!).
* FeatherFingers and ToothyBird: Roy, Wade, Booker, most likely Sheldon, and minor bird characters as well.
* RagtagBunchOfMisfits: Can you say any of the farm animals are considered 'normal'? You got a pig whose imagination can come to life and take others with him. A loud-mouth rooster that likes to play pranks. A wacky duck that's afraid of nearly everything. A sheep who's a grumpy CuteBruiser and her brother who's ditzy (a GeniusDitz in the cartoon). A chick who chases after a worm, coyote-road runner style. An intelligent chick who lives in his egg. A puppy who thinks he's a ferocious dog. Even Blue the cat is strange in her own right. Her bio said she's mystic and mysterious.
* TwoGirlsToATeam: Abrasive Lanolin Sheep and kind, intelligent Blue the cat. Though that was once Blue came into the picture... and before she was [[ChuckCunninghamSyndrome Chucked]]. Could've been subverted, had they decided to add in [[WhatCouldHaveBeen Jodie the horse]] (look up the trivia section).

!!Orson Pig
* TheAllegedBoss: Given how much abuse he takes from the other animals, it's easy to think his seniority doesn't go beyond being TeamMom. But a couple of times in the cartoon, he has reached breaking point and reminded them, he's in charge, and if they go too far, he can kick them out.
* {{Bookworm}}: He also had EncyclopaedicKnowledge because of the books in the few out of print U.S.Acres storybooks.
* CampStraight: There's teasing between him and Lanolin, and look below ChildhoodFriendRomance. Also there's [[https://garfield.com/usacres/1987/03/13 this strip]].
* ChildhoodFriendRomance: In the cartoon "Stark Raven Made", Orson was in love (and still is to this day) with a pig girl name Lenore, but then at the age of four, Lenore had to move away and couldn't see Orson anymore which left him brokenhearted (even to this day).
* HerCodeNameWasMarySue: In several of his fantasies, such as Power Pig and Double-O-Orson.
* {{Hypocrite}} and HypocriticalHumor: There are moments when he gets like that. For example in the episode, "The Impractical Joker", when the other animals complain to him about Roy insulting him with a joke book, Orson tells them to just ignore it, they're harmless. But when Roy does it to Orson, he fires him from the farm. The other animals ([[VitriolicBestBuds even Wade]]) thought firing Roy was too far.
** HypocrisyNod: Though when called out on it, he admits, "I guess that's when it wasn't about me."
* ImagineSpotting: Orson's imagination is so powerful the other characters somehow get transported into his fantasies.
* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy: Orson's Feminine Boy to Lanolin's Masculine Girl.
* MrImagination: The stuff he imagines can tend to come to life.
* RedOniBlueOni: The Blue to both Roy and Wade's red but the red to Bo's blue in the cartoon. He's the Blue to Bo's {{Keet}}-Red in the comics.
* StraightMan: As his Bio says.
* TeamMom (occasionally a TeamDad)
* WhatTheHellHero: There are times when he does means well and at least regrets his mistakes afterwards and sometimes tries to fix it. Then there are times when he's this trope. One example is in "Goody-go-Round" when Orson found nearly everyone was fighting and insulting each other. Orson asked what was wrong, but instead of letting them answer, he just goes and insults them, even Sheldon (who wasn't even involved in the fight!). [[FlatWhat Uh, what?]] He's especially this in the comic version.

!!Roy Rooster
* AdaptationalHeroism: Sort of. Roy's still a loudmouthed {{Troll}} in ''Garfield and Friends'', but the stories are longer and morals are more prevalent, so a nicer side of him does show at times.
* AlliterativeName: If his name Roy Rooster didn't already clue you in.
* AntiHero: "Disney" type in the cartoon version. Though it seems to be in the lower scale at times in the comic version.
* BullyingTheDragon: Sometimes earns harsh retribution for trolling Lanolin. He's also heckled Orson enough break his TheAllegedBoss routine and get threatened with unemployment.
* ButtMonkey: In the two cartoon episodes where he quits the show and works with the Buddy Bears (as their designated [[TheComplainerIsAlwaysWrong disagreeing companion]]).
** He can also be this outside those two episodes. Justified because, pretty much always, [[LaserGuidedKarma he had it coming]].
* CockADoodleDawn: Through he usually uses his horn to wake people up.
* ChasteToons: In season 6, he got a visit from his niece, Chloe.
** PapaWolf: [[spoiler:In "Uncle Roy to the rescue", [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown he beats up the weasel]] for kidnapping his niece and trying to eat her.]]
* DoNotCallMePaul: Averted in the strips. Roy hates when Lanolin calls him "Bird" instead of calling him by name. [[https://garfield.com/usacres/1987/07/24 In this strip]], in response to Roy asking her to call him by name, she called him "Ray". He was upset.
* {{Flanderization}}: In the comics, his appearances of early 1986 had him with a much more mellowed down {{Jerkass}} tendency and his prankster aspect merely started out with waking up other farm animals with his horn. These aspects were treated light-heartedly harmless and were not as much a core aspect of his personality. By 1987, he pretty much exists as a full on {{Troll}} for the farm.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Mostly in the cartoons though.
* NotAMorningPerson: He gets up to do his job, waking people up, usually with his horn... then goes back to sleep. And besides a love/hate relationship with Wade, he also has one with his [[RingRingCRUNCH alarm clock]]. In some episodes of the cartoon, Roy simply has a recorded version of the wake-up call to play so he won't even have to wake up.
* OddFriendship: With Wade, especially later on in the show.
* ThePrankster: He likes to makes schemes and pull pranks at people and his friends, though sometimes, his karma catches up to him.
* RealMenWearPink: In "Orson's Diner", he's shown to be knitting a whole sweater.
* RollerbladeGood: In the "Garfield's Defense" games, he uses his skates to attack the alien monsters.
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: His Manly Man to... the rest of the adult males' Sensitive Guy, but especially Wade's.
* SitcomArchNemesis: To Lanolin, his obnoxious humour clashing with her ugly temperament. More prominent in the comics, though did occur in the cartoons to a lesser degree.
* SmallNameBigEgo: Through, in the cartoon, he does happen to be talented, he really does let that go to his head.
* TookALevelInJerkass: In the comics, unfortunately. Check above {{Flanderization}}.
* TookALevelInKindness: While his Comic version took a turn for the worse and got more crueler, Cartoon Roy took a turn for the better and got more nicer. Even more then the earlier seasons. He's still a mischievous prankster of course, but in the later seasons, there were several episodes, where he wasn't even trying to make pranks or cause much trouble. In one episode, "Who Done It?" he was saying "Hi!" to one of the dog brothers and being friendly and in "Badtime Story" he(like his friends) just wanted to read a story to Booker and Sheldon. Hmmm...Must have been from hanging out with [[MoralityPet Wade so much.]]
* {{Tsundere}}: (Non-physically abusive Harsh Type) He's mainly this to Wade. He's shown deredere moments to him even if he wouldn't admit it and Wade seems pretty well aware of it.
* VitriolicBestBuds: He's pretty much this to the cast. Roy's definitely this with Wade, especially in the cartoon version. He's always making pranks to scare Wade, though he's never usually physically abusive of him (and Wade was starting to catch on to him in the later seasons) and he really does care about Wade in his own "Roy Rooster" way. Other times, they're arguing and there are other times when they actually act like friends. They had many love/hate friendship moments that leads to funny moments. Over the seasons, their relationship evolved to the point where they had the closest friendship with each other, besides with Orson.

!!Wade Duck
* AccidentalHero: Occasionally, Wade could end up accidentally saving the day. One example is "Flop Goes the Weasel", where he accidentally saved the chickens from the weasel.
* AcrophobicBird: He's a duck, that's afraid of heights and flying.
* {{Adorkable}}: He's scared of nearly everything, and also gets nervous, He's shy at times. He can also be clumsy and kinda dorky, but he's still adorable with it.
* BecomingTheMask: Happened to him in "Snow Wade and the 77 Dwarves"...
* BornUnlucky: One of the main reasons in the strip for his paranoia and depression.
* CloudCuckoolander: He has shades of this.
* CowardlyLion: That's what he's known for. A cowardly craven duck, however, he can show to have courage and face his fears, when he puts his mind to it. And at times, when his friends are in trouble, he tends to put his fears aside and help them. In "Rainy Day Robot", he even forgot at first, that he's afraid of rain, [[FriendshipMoment when hanging out with Roy.]]
* CrossCastRole: Wade's usually a victim of this in the fairy tale themed episodes. This may be because there's no one else around to fit this role to play TheIngenue, and the only main female character, Lanolin, is more suited for characters like Disney/{{Mulan}}. Wade's best-known example of this trope is in "Snow Wade and the 77 Dwarves". Also in the Downloads section of the U.S.Acres subsection of the ''Garfield'' website, [[ContinuityNod one of the Desktop Wallpapers has Wade as Miss Muffet]]. [[http://www.garfield.com/usacres/wallpapers/pages/stage/stage1280.html Guess who's the spider?]]
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Roy's able to occasionally bring this up in Wade, like [[http://garfield.com/us-acres/1986-09-29 when he woke the gang up]] [[http://garfield.com/us-acres/1986-10-02 too many times.]]
** In "Garfield's Defense 2", he uses a SIGN POST to attack the alien monsters in some of the level.
* DisembodiedEyebrows: He has eyebrows, that floats above his head.
* TheDitz: There are times when he just doesn't think and he easily gets tricked by Roy's pranks and PaperThinDisguise.
-->'''Wade:''' You tricked me!
-->'''Roy:''' You were stupid enough to let me trick you!
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: [[https://garfield.com/usacres/1986/08/04 Wade made his debut by running in fear and screaming "Arrrgh!"]]
-->'''Orson:''' Was that my imagination or did a duck with an inner tube just race in out of the rain?
-->'''Wade:''' Duck? Inner tube?! Oh-no! Where?!
-->'''Orson:''' And does he appear a bit nervous?
* ExpressiveAccessory: The duck head on his inner tube always matches his expression.
* FluffyTamer: Believe it or not! In "Show Stoppers", [[spoiler:he has a big fearsome looking bull who he calls Fido, who ended up chasing Orson's mean brothers away.]]
* KindheartedSimpleton: Although cartoon Wade's not very smart, he is shown to be good-hearted. The difference between him and and both versions of Bo was that cartoon Bo was a GeniusDitz and Comic strip Bo was a ditz, while both versions of Wade were near TooDumbToLive level.
* LovableCoward: Other than his usual cowardliness and [[CloudCuckooLander strangeness]], he's a pretty likable guy.
* NervousWreck: To go along with being the craven coward.
* NiceGuy: He's not usually mean-spirted and is normally friendly with his friends or people, he don't consider his enemies (if he's not freaking out first). [[VitriolicBestBuds With Roy on the other hand, it varies.]]
* OddFriendship: With Roy especially later on in the show.
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: His sensitive guy to Roy's manly man.
* TooDumbToLive: Happens a lot to him both the comic and cartoon version. Once, in "Snow Wade and the 77 dwarves", [[spoiler:he ate an apple even when he was told it was poison.]]
* {{Tsundere}}: Sweet Type with Roy, mainly in the cartoon version. He's nice and friendly with the rest of his friends. Arguing/competing against Roy is surprisingly the only thing(s) Wade's not usually afraid of!
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Roy, mainly in the cartoon version, to the point where over the seasons they had the closest friendship besides with Orson.
* WildTake: Well, being a craven cowardly duck, naturally, he will make cartoony reactions and then can run off going, "HEEEELLP!!"

!!Booker Chick
* BlackBeadEyes: As you can see, in the pic.
** They become SphereEyes whenever he reacts strongly, such as happiness, anger, surprise, fear, excitement...
* BrattyHalfPint: Occasionally mouthy or mischievous.
* CloserToEarth: In the later strips.
* HappilyAdopted: By Orson.
* KidsAreCruel: Not nearly as much of a JerkAss as Lanolin, but he still has moments where he shows a disturbing sadistic streak.

* RedOniBlueOni: Red to Shelden's blue.
* RoadRunnerVsCoyote: He's the Coyote to the Worm.

* PuppyLove: He hinted to like Chloe in the episode "Snow Wade and the 77 Dwarfs, part 2".
* RedOniBlueOni: Blue to Booker's red.

!!Lanolin Sheep
* AdaptationalHeroism: Lanolin is still grumpy and standoffish in ''Garfield and Friends'', though more developed plot lines lead to more softer redeeming moments to show.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: {{Averted}}. Lanolin makes no secret of the fact that she's abrasive, despite literally being in sheep's clothing.
* CuteBruiser: As shown in the comics.
* DamselInDistress: In Orson's fantasies for him to rescue, but in reality, [[ActionGirl Lanolin would most likely end up rescuing Orson, instead.]]

* PolarOppositeTwins and SiblingYinYang: As shown in the other tropes, she's the more grumpy, brash sibling.

In ''WesternAnimation/GarfieldAndFriends'', she's the only female who regularly appeared in ''either'' short ([[DudeLooksLikeALady Nermal is male]], Liz only showed up occasionally, and Penelope was only in the last three seasons). The writers were going to add in Chloe, but they forgot. The strip had Blue, but she disappeared after awhile.
* SitcomArchNemesis: To Roy, his obnoxious humour clashing with her ugly temperament. More prominent in the comics, though did occur in the cartoons to a lesser degree.
* SugarAndIcePersonality: She's more Ice than 'sugar', but she does brings hints of 'sugar' moments towards Bo and (mainly in the the cartoon) Orson.
* SupremeChef: In the cartoon, she's very good at making cakes and pies.
* TertiarySexualCharacteristics: The pigtails, the bow, and eyelashes. Blue eye-shadow in the cartoon.

* AdaptationPersonalityChange: In the strip, he was TheDitz whose stupidity was his defining trait. In the cartoon, he was a GeniusDitz who talked in a surfer accent.
** AdaptationalIntelligence: He was made much more smarter compared to the comic strip.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: As shown in the episode "Keeping Cool". He acted carefree when Orson's brothers' tried to pick on him. But DON'T threaten/mess with his friends! [[spoiler:He got rid of Orson's brother by having them be dragged from a bus.]]
* CuddleBug: [[https://garfield.com/usacres/1988/06/08 Here]] and especially [[https://garfield.com/usacres/1987/12/25 here]].
* TheDitz: In the strip. Although in the cartoon he wasn't as dumb as in the strip, he did have his random moments such as in the episode "Fast Food" where [[spoiler:he was cooking for his hungry, waiting friends, one strand of spaghetti/one pea at a time, much to their dismay.]]
* GeniusDitz: In the cartoon.
* {{Keet}}: In the strip, he's more lively and perky then in the cartoon.

* SurferDude: In the cartoon, he speaks slang and like he's from the beach.
* TooDumbToLive: In the strip, but both versions of Wade would give him a run for his money.

!!Blue and Cody

* AmazingTechniColorWildLife: Blue one of the few (if only)main characters with an unrealistic color on her.
* BewareOfViciousDog: That's what Cody likes to imagine himself as, but he's really basically lovable.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Blue is friendly and polite, but if Cody goes too far with chasing the animals, she won't hesitate to threaten him, [[https://garfield.com/usacres/1987/12/05 and he better listen.]]
* CatsAreMean: Averted! Blue is easily one of the friendliest and most considerate characters in the cast.
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Both of them disappeared in mid-1988, months before. ''WesternAnimation/GarfieldAndFriends'' premiered. They never appeared in the cartoon, likely due to the confusion that might have arisen from them being in the same series as Garfield and Odie, who don't speak.
** Although Cody appeared in a few of the ''U.S. Acres'' storybooks.
* CloserToEarth: Blue is smarter and more sensible then Cody.

* ComicallyMissingThePoint: It was raining and Estelle told Filbert he should do something about the hole in the roof. When he told her it was the front door, she told him he should then do something about the hole at the front door.

* BigBrotherBully: They always picked on Orson even when he was a piglet and whenever they come by to visit.
* BigThinShortTrio: Gort is the big, Wart is the thin, and Mort is the short, but all three are much bigger than Orson by comparison.
* EvilCounterpart: Like 'Cartoon' Bo Sheep, Wart seems to be the more laid back one of the trio, but he's still just as malicious as his other two brothers.
* FatBastard: They're fat and they awful bothers and thieves, to Orson and his friends.
* FatIdiot: For example, in the episode, "Mystery Guest", they were too stupid to realize the mystery guest was [[spoiler:Garfield]] despite the PaperThinDisguise.
* HeelFaceMole: Gort tried this in one episode.
