Fridge / Garfield and Friends

Fridge Logic
  • In "Hamelot" the farm gang were wearing swimsuits to take a shower. It would've been understandable if they were wearing swimsuits just for show and to go swimming. But wearing swimsuits to take a shower, when you need your clothes off anyway?
    • Maybe it hasn't occurred to them that they're all naked anyway.
  • Since when did Jon had a niece(from "Suburban Jungle"). He has one sibling and he's not married. Maybe Doc Boy adopted her?
    • He was also once going to mail a stuffed cat to his cousin. Perhaps it's one generation back - either his mom or dad had siblings and thats where these relatives are coming from.
    • Have any of you considered that Shannon's mom dumped Doc Boy?
  • Roy's the only rooster on the farm and makes a point of driving off anyone who tries to take his job. Does that mean Booker and Sheldon are his children...?
  • How can the Buddy Bears talk with humans (meaning with their mouths), while Garfield and the other animals can't? Furthermore, how can they communicate with humans and animals (like Garfield in "Binky Gets Cancelled... AGAIN!")

Fridge Horror
  • In "An Egg-Citing Story", they shown a flashback of Sheldon saving Booker and three other chicks from the weasel. This was the only time we ever saw other chicks besides Booker and Sheldon living in the same farm and we never see them again....What happened?!....Did the weasel successfully catch and eat the three chicks?!..or the fox caught them?!
  • Played for laughs in an episode of Orson's Farm titled "The Secrets Of The Animated Cartoon," in which Orson explains different cartoon tropes. The example given for the "extreme delayed reaction take" is Booker telling Bo that Earth is being invaded by aliens disguised as bottles of dishwashing liquid. No reaction. Months pass. Then, one snowy day the following winter, Bo suddenly stops dead and says, "Dishwashing liquid?! Aw no, man!!" and flees in terror.
  • In "Fair Exchange", after Jon and Garfield have an argument they both go to bed and dream about switching places. Most of the cartoon is Garfield learning how hard Jon has it and Jon (as Garfield) goofing off, but towards the end after Garfield wakes up, Jon is shows pleading not to be taken to the vet, promising to be a "good cat", at first it seems like nothing, then you realize Jon was talking about being taken to the vet to be put down. Yeowch! That's some dark humor for a cartoon aimed mostly at kids.
  • A LITERAL version of this trope in one of Garfield's Tales Of Scary Stuff involves one of Jon's recipes coming to life. At the end baking soda defeats the monster. A mostly silly episodes, but what happened to the little girl at the end that didn't have baking soda? Most characters in Garfield's universe aren't as equipped to fight monsters as Garfield, Odie, and Jon are.
